We hate cleaning, you hate cleaning, we all hate cleaning. Yuk.

But as the days get lighter and the sun starts to shine, we can't help but notice all these massive piles of dust the gloomy winter days have helpful kept hidden. Time to sort it out.

Vax want to share their top tips and home remedies for getting your home spic and span...

Try unblocking sinks by pouring down some bicarbonate of soda, followed by some clear vinegar. This solution should fizz and bubble up, and give your pipes a good cleaning out!

Cleaning a dirty oven requires either natural materials and elbow grease or a pretty scary chemical attack. The non-caustic method calls for, you guessed it, bicarbonate of soda, mixed to a thick paste and smeared all over the inside of the oven. Leave overnight then brace yourself for some serious scrubbing with water and a scourer.

Clean the inside of a dirty vase by filling it with vinegar and a handful of dry rice.

Clean the bottom of saucepans with salt and vinegar – shake salt on the pan, sprinkle with vinegar and wipe round with a kitchen towel.

Remove burnt-on food from a saucepan by boiling a cup of cola for a minute or two.

Remove coffee or tea stains from the bottom of a mug by swishing white vinegar around it.

SPRING CLEAN YOUR FINANCES

Put cut lemons in the microwave on full for three minutes to loosen dirt and make it smell nice.

Clean fridge seals by using a toothbrush with toothpaste.

Loosen lime scale with denture cleaning tablets - dissolve a couple in the kettle overnight.

Clean windows and mirrors with scrunched-up newspaper, dampened with white vinegar and water.

Make ironing a breeze by putting a sheet of tin foil on the board under the cover.

Remove food stains from polyester ties by dabbing the stain with a soft white cloth soaked with vodka.

When your dishcloth gets dirty and you own a dishwasher, why not put your dishcloth in there with the dirty dishes too!
