Can't face doing the chores? We have the solutions
The sun is shining and, let’s face it, there are many things you would rather be doing than tirelessly scrubbing the bathroom or kitchen. Sitting out in the garden and catching some rays, while sipping a long cool drink of your choice and chatting to your best friend or other half will be high on the list, we’re sure. Of course, no one wants to abandon ship altogether and let the dirt build up, but the good news is there are ways you can keep your home looking pristine with minimal effort. Here are some of our favourites…
