Savvy mums’ tips: handy household ideas

Useful suggestions from other mums in the supersavvyme community

Try these three money-saving suggestions for solving everyday niggles in the home:

Sharon says:
‘Wrap a used paint brush in cling film, it stops the bristles from going stiff and can be used again.’

Hayley says:
‘I had some sellotape residue stuck on my window frames from the banners after my little boy’s birthday. I couldn’t shift it so my friend suggested butter and wahey butter removes sticky stuff!’

Editor’s tips:
• If you’re worried about zips and hooks catching on fabrics in the wash, separate these items off in a light cotton pillowcase so you can still put them all through the same laundry cycle.
• Keep nice smelling soaps in your drawer for a few months before using – they scent your clothes and tend to get harder, which will make them last longer when you come to wash with them.

My daughter sprayed an oil based perfume and it made the laminate floor very very slippery. I tried everything to get it off making the floor even more slippery. As a last resort after having tried everything in my cupboard I used a spray window cleaner on it. Hey presto it was brilliant ...slipperiness gone in a flash. It's not just for windows.
