First up, she can be seen tackling her mattress.

“Deodorise your mattress by sprinkling baking soda,”she advised. “Wait 30 minutes and vacuum.”

However, she warned it’s important to use a vacuum without a HEPA filter, or clean the filter straight after so as not to damage it.

Next, she demonstrates how you can rid your kettle of limescale by simply boiling lemon and water.

Then, she tackles hard water stains in her bathroom with a solution made up of one cup of white vinegar, half a cup of lemon juice and one tablespoon of dish soap.

Amongst her other top tips shared in a second video include placing a cotton ball with essential oil under your bin liner to repel odours, and buffing shaving cream into mirrors to keep them shiny and fingerprint free.

She also advised making showers sparkle with white vinegar and two tablespoons of dish soap.

And delighted homeowners were full of praise for the handy hacks.

“The mattress deodoriser was a great idea! thank you,” praised one, while a second enthused: “The lemon in the kettle cleaning hack works a treat.”

A third added: “Just tried the lemon in my water heater, amazing! Been wondering how to clean this! Thanks.”

Meanwhile, a fourth chimed in: “Immediately tried the lemon in the kettle thing – it’s now spotless!”
