No, what I want to talk about today is something far more satisfying - cleaning! Actually I jest. I hate housework but as I love a pristine house and don't have enough money to employ 'a lady that does', it has to be tackled. My store cleaning products is relatively small - bleach, a multipurpose squirter, white vinegar, furniture polish, some cream cleaner and biological washing powder tablets.
The last item is used sparingly, though, I hasten to add, not for laundering. As I'm biological myself I find the residual enzymes in them make me itch though they're great for stubborn grease and stain removal. Just dilute a tablet in hot water in the sink, stick your dirty knobs in there for about half an hour with the ironwork from the hob and the removable bits from the inside of the dishwasher. After a quick rinse off you'll have grease free appliance perfection!
