This chapter is about kids and when to get them in on the act. This is only a brief section because though I’ve brought up two lovely kids myself, I’m not a child-psychologist and I’m certainly not advocating any right or wrong ways of doing things. These are just a few little extra tips to […]

How to Clean Stove Top Grates

Clean the grates in almost exactly the same way as would with burner plates by soaking them in hot water and dishwashing fluid and then scrubbing the life out of them until grease free.

You can use a scouring pad on non-coated grates but for coated ones, always use a sponge. This avoids scraping off the […]

How to Clean the Outside of the Stove the Eco-Friendly Way

Baking soda is great for cleaning, but when combined with white-vinegar and a maybe a little lemon peel, you get an amazing multi-purpose cleaner!

Get a large-sized spray bottle and fill it with a solution of one part baking soda to one part white-vinegar to three parts water. For fragrance, add lemon or orange peel first […]

How to De-Scale Taps and Plugholes

Though there are many chemical products out there, I’ve found that many promise the Earth but fail to deliver. Moreover, you cannot use most of them on gold-plated taps.

I find the best and safest way is to spray a half vinegar/water solution around the plughole and taps, and then leave them for about 10 minutes […]
