2. The Cotton Pad Toothbrush Charger Trick
We’re all familiar with that unpleasant build-up of gunk on the base of toothbrush chargers, but did you know that this can be avoided with a simple cotton pad? Cut a small hole in the middle of the cotton pad and place over the charging unit - check out our demo video below.
Top tip: if you find the cotton pad impacts charging, then remove a few layers of the cotton pad.

3. Dry Dusting Trick
It's always a good idea to remove dust before you clean in order to make sure you've effectively removed all dirt and bacteria. By dusting with a microfibre cloth (which carries a ‘positive’ charge) the dust will be electrostatically attracted to the negatively charged dust/dirt particles (therefore the cloth will actively pull the dust from the surface and into the fibres of the cloth).

4. Shower Head Descale
White vinegar has long been hailed as a fantastic natural descaler, which makes it perfect for unclogging shower head limescale build-up with this easy tip. Soak your shower head in white vinegar (either in a bag attached to the head or in a bucket) for an hour before using a toothbrush to dislodge any remaining limescale.

6. Bicarb & Lemon Sink Clean
Bicarb and lemon is another classic natural cleaning combination. As an acid and a base, the two agents react with one another to help loosen dirt from surfaces. This tip is perfect if you’ve got some old or mouldy lemons to use up.
Top tip: make sure you rinse the lemon juice away to remove the natural sugars from your surfaces.
