Handy hints to make life eas­ier.

RATHER THAN THROW AWAY THOSE LIT­TLE BAGS OF SIL­ICA (WHICH COME WITH AL­MOST EV­ERY­THING NOWA­DAYS), PUT THEM IN YOUR BATH­ROOM DRAW­ERS AND CUP­BOARDS TO SOAK UP MOIS­TURE. THEY’RE ALSO USE­FUL TO KEEP THINGS MILDEW-FREE WHEN STOR­ING AWAY LI­NEN, CLOTHES AND SHOES. JUST EX­ER­CISE CAU­TION IF SMALL CHIL­DREN ARE ABOUT THE HOUSE.

TO NEU­TRALISE DISH­WASHER SMELLS, PLACE BI-CARB SODA IN THE POW­DER SEC­TION AND WHITE VINE­GAR IN THE RINSE-AID SEC­TION, THEN RUN A QUICK CY­CLE WHILE EMPTY. THIS DEODORISES THE MA­CHINE AND MAKES IT SPARKLE!

MORE THAN HAIR VS Sas­soon Mi­lano hair dryer, $68, from Har­vey Nor­man. TO RE­MOVE A STICKY LA­BEL OR TAG, GIVE IT A QUICK BLAST WITH A HAIR DRYER TO WARM THE GLUE. THIS MAKES IT EASY PEASY TO RE­MOVE STUB­BORN STICK­ERS. NO MORE PICKPICK-PICK­ING!
