Expert offers quirky cleaning tips

Cleaning expert Lynsey Crombie has offered some tips on how people can keep their homes fresh and sparkling with a few household objects.

Keeping your house clean doesn’t have to involve lots of expensive products and accessories, according to one expert.

Make the most of lemons

Lots of people will have lemons lying around the house, but might not be aware of the powerful cleaning properties that come from the fruit’s acidic nature.

Tea bags in trainers

One of the Queen of Clean’s most unusual tips was aimed at people who have struggled to get rid of unpleasant odours from well-worn trainers.

Ice cubes in the tumble dryer

Lynsey had another unusual suggestion for tackling one of those particularly difficult domestic jobs: getting creases out of clothes as quickly as possible.

Mascara brushes and potato peel

The innovative cleaning tips didn’t end there, with the Instagram star also pointing out how old mascara brushes, which would ordinarily go straight in the bin, can be used to clean tight, hard-to-reach spaces like kitchen plugs and vents that gather dust.
