coals. Leave to dry and they'll come up really glossy again.

putting a fabric conditioner sheet in the bottom.

wardrobes and drawers.

* To make your clothes smell nice, put an empty perfume of
after-shave bottle amongst your clothes. You can do the same

washing day!

place in a small muslin bag. Ideal for families with teenage boys!

methylated spirits. Alternatively, sprinkle talcum powder on to
the adhesive and rub with your finger to remove.
