Home hacks for families!

Keeping your home in a good state can be a difficult task!

Here are 5 home hacks for families to keep your house in a great condition!

Sand your driveways! 

Gaps in your driveway pavement are not a good look!  This can lead to long term issues such as the pavement breaking/falling apart, which then would need replacing in the future!  

Here’s an easy tip!  

Purchase some kiln dried sand and brush it along your driveway pavement! This will not only fill up the gaps between the pavement bricks, but also mean there will be no weeds growing in between!  

Maintain your tumble dryer!

Fluff from your tumble dryer filter and vent can not only cause damage to your machine but is also extremely flammable! 

Cleaning any fluff in the vent/filter with a vacuum will ensure your machine continues to operate correctly and will help to stop any future issues with maintenance!  

Use WD-40 to clean the toilet! 

WD-40 is used typically to stop the squeaking and creaking of items, but this can also be used as a great cleaning product!  

Spraying WD-40 on tough limescale stains on your toilet and allowing it to sit for a couple of minutes, will not only help the stains to dissolve more faster, but will also have your toilet looking clean and fresh!  

Maintain the gutters on your property!  

Gutters are a significant part of your property’s well-being! They not only control the flow of rainwater, but also protect your roof, walls, foundation and landscape!  

This can turn into a nightmare situation, if neglected!

Change your bulb’s!  

This is another great tip that will benefit you the entire year around!  

Checking your light bulbs around the house and switching them to LED light bulbs could save you some extra £’s! LED light bulbs are four times more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs, and also last for longer!  

Making the switch during the summertime is a great way to cut down on those energy bills during the winter seasons!
