■ 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.
