Q

We moved into an old bun­ga­low and had a con­crete bath­room floor skimmed with lino over the top. Now we are get­ting pink and gray patches show­ing on the lino. Any ideas? Linda Parker, by email

It’s damp­ness caused by the con­crete sweat­ing. You ide­ally need to re-lay the floor with a damp-proof course, but the eas­i­est so­lu­tion is to sim­ply lay porce­lain tiles di­rectly on the con­crete as these are com­pletely wa­ter­proof.

QI have used bleach on my toi­let and now there are stains run­ning down the back of it. Is there any­thing I can do to get rid of them? I thought bleach was sup­posed to clean the toi­let not make it worse!

This should not hap­pen and the bowl is faulty. I would im­me­di­ately con­tact the sup­plier/mer­chant who sold it and get it re­placed.
