CANNY COCONUT OIL
Not just the superfood of the moment, coconut oil is handy round the home too...
Rub a small amount into wooden furniture and leave it to dry – it will help avoid cracking as well as giving it a shine. Run out of washing detergent? Mix 150g (5oz) coconut oil, 55ml (2fl oz) water, 25g (1oz) bicarbonate of soda and a drop of perfume. Natural and cheap!
Keep your hairbrush hygienic using coconut oil’s natural disinfectant properties. Rub your brush with it, leave for an hour or so and wash off.
