With spring just around the corner, I thought I would share some handy household hints for your spring clean.

I have learnt some of these tips from my mother and grandmother and have picked up others along the way.

These tips will help keep your house fresh and clean and take some of the strain out of cleaning.2

Some people find cleaning something of a chore but I actually quite enjoy it and find it quite therapeutic.

I put some music on and class it as a bit of a workout.2

It can actually be very satisfying when you sit back and see the fruits of your labour, until someone comes in and messes it all up again!

Here are some household hints to help make housework that little bit easier.

1. Stained Coffee Cups

Stained Coffee Cups

I hate to perpetuate those stereotypes but as a Brit, I do enjoy my cup of tea.

This regular indulgence can take its toll on your mugs and gorgeous china cups, so one of my favorite household hints is one which will help keep your cups clean and guest ready.

The last thing you want is to churn a guest's stomach with a stained tea or coffee cup, so one of the natural ways to clean them is with salt.

Just scrub the stains off with a sponge or cloth.

If you need something that's a little more heavy duty, mix equal parts of distilled malt vinegar and salt.

2. Sparkly Sink

Sparkly Sink

Everyone loves a sparkly clean kitchen sink, don't they?

Well, I do.

Whether your sink is cast iron, acrylic, stainless steel or porcelain, there are ways to keep it looking shiny and new.

Try fizzy soda water for stainless steel and for a ceramic sink, use a little dishwasher powder and leave it for 30 minutes before scrubbing with a cloth or non-metallic pad.

Another tip is to sprinkle some bicarbonate of soda and then spray on some white wine vinegar.

Your sink will look shiny and new in no time.
