Scrubbing limescale in the bathroom is probably nobody’s idea of a great time. It’s no wonder we reach for nasty abrasive cleaners. This doesn’t make the job any more fun – and adds to our plastic bottle waste. Believe it or not, there’s an easy way to defeat the enemy - all you need is acidic cleaner like lemon juice or vinegar which melts away the limescale. This goes for sinks, showers and even your toilet.
Check out our Elbow Grease guide for tips on removing limescale.
Its amazing to think that most toilet paper is made from freshly-cut trees. And then packaged in non-recyclable plastic film. That's a huge waste of trees, carbon and emissions.
Go tree-free! People who switch to bamboo loo paper are pleasantly surprised with the strength and softness. Why not treat yourself to a little luxury and join the revolution. And while you're at it, ditch the plastic toilet brush and invest in an eco-friendly bamboo version.
Everyone knows that eternal loo problem - no matter how much you spray the Febreze, nothing can cover up that smell. As well as being wasteful, aerosol sprays don't work as they try to control the damage, but don't treat the problem itself. Try buying post-poo drops that come in glass bottle. Or use a few drops of essential oils, which trap the odours underneath. People in new relationships everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief.
