  • A few years back I was on a cleaning campaign that involved cleaning bathrooms with vinegar. I went to visit my sister in London and while she was at work, I worked on her entire bathroom: the tub, sink, faucets, everything with white vinegar and toothpaste. The place gleamed and I was thrilled with the <... >

  • I don’t use soap often. I don’t know why, but as a child it always left my skin dry and taut. Not that I didn’t love the shape, fragrance and feel of soap bars. I always remember Bromley’s lemon bars our mum would put in the “good” bathroom for visitors. But I never used it <... >

And let’s face it ladies, that’s <... >

  • 1. Ask your utility company for a home energy audit to find out where your home is poorly insulated or energy-inefficient. 2. Run your dishwasher only when you have a full load. Use the energy savings setting to dry the dishes. Don’t use heat when drying. 3. Wash clothes in warm or cold water, not <... >

  • If you haven’t had a chance to see Al Gore’s brilliant “Inconvenient Truth” yet, take my Global Warming IQ test and see just how much or how little you really know about this hot topic. Then once you’ve tallied up your GW IQ score (no cheating), check my list of 12 simple things you can <... >
