There’s no need to break your back with our housework hacks!

You’ve probably honed your housework routine over the years and have it down pat, but it can still be a back-breaking task. Avoid aches and pains with our easy guide to keeping it clean…

Bathroom blitz

Between bending over the bath and risking slipping over while cleaning the shower, this is one of the toughest rooms in the house to clean. Make life a little easier by getting into the habit of wiping down your shower, taps and shower screen every time you use it. This will help prevent the build-up of limescale.

If you have a case of stubborn limescale, the good news is that the answer isn’t a strenuous scrubbing session. In fact, it’s an excuse to put your feet up! Simply soak affected areas with Viakal Limescale Remover and then treat yourself to a cup of tea while you wait.

After your cuppa, you’ll find that the Viakal Limescale Remover will have done all the hard work for you. All you need to do is simply rinse it away!

Smooth sailing

If the thought of a huge pile of ironing fills you with dread, then you are most definitely not alone. It’s a repetitive task that can put a huge strain on the arms and shoulders.

One easy way to avoid ironing is to use a softening detergent, and hang wet clothes carefully. Bold 3in1 Pods will soften your clothes as well as cleaning and imparting a fresh smell, so will reduce the need for ironing.

And to make the iron redundant for good, after washing with Bold 3in1 Pods, give your clothes a good shake before you hang them out to dry. This will get rid of the last of the wrinkles, so you won’t need to take your iron out of the cupboard again!

Sink in

Donning the rubber gloves and leaning over the kitchen sink isn’t much fun for anyone, and it’s probably not doing your back and shoulders much good either. While the washing up isn’t going anywhere, you can speed up the process so it doesn’t feel like such a big job.

One of the quickest ways to get the job done is by using Fairy. Its superior cleaning power means that it gets tableware with even the most stubborn baked-on food sparkling, first time. Not only will you get the dishes done in double-quick time, you’ll need less liquid meaning it lasts longer and you get the best value for money.

Kitchen clean up

Floors, hob, worktops – there’s all manner of cleaning needed in the kitchen. Instead of buying separate products for each job, save time and money with Flash Multi-Surface Concentrated Cleaner – it’ll save your back from bending down to find a new product in the cupboard under the sink for each job!

This powerful product is perfect all over the kitchen, and is also great for the bathroom too. It’ll get rid of dried food stains, clean the floor and generally leave the place sparkling in a flash!
