■ Tight on space? The Addis extendable three-tier clothes airer expands and contracts (from 44cm to 72cm wide) to suit your drying space. Capacity for 5kg of clothes and folds flat for storage. £14.99 from ROBERTDYAS.CO.UK
■ To freshen up a musty carpet, combine a cup of bicarbonate of soda with 8-10 drops of your favourite essential oil. Lavender, rosemary or tea tree are all good (or try mixing together). Sprinkle the mixture onto your carpet, leave overnight then vacuum thoroughly in the morning.
■ If you have a septic tank and can’t use bleach, clean and freshen your toilet bowl with a handful of washing soda instead. Sprinkle in a handful, then flush it away.
