Welcome to our Spring Edit. We sat down with Lynsey Crombie, TV’s Queen of Clean, to pick up her best tips and tricks for cleaning your home, not just in Spring but all year round.
What Is Your All-Time Favourite Cleaning Tip, Trick or Hack?
White vinegar for tackling hard water marks and limescale, no need for any scrubbing, just spray and leave it to do its job. Every home needs a bottle of white vinegar.
If You Could Only Use One Cleaning Product for the Rest of Your Life, What Would it Be?
Washing up liquid.
Did you know: you can use washing up liquid as a pre-wash stain treatment and remove grease stains with it.
What Is Your Least Favourite Room/Place in Your House to Clean?
Cordless or Corded Vacuum?
Cordless for those quick daily cleans and corded for deeper cleans.
What Is Your Favourite Cleaning Scent?
For the bathroom, I love to use mint and eucalyptus and in the kitchen, I love to use lemon scents.
What Do You Listen to While Cleaning? Music, Podcast etc.
I enjoy listening to 90’s dance music, upbeat and motivational.
Cordless Iron or Garment Steamer?
Garment steamer, easy to get it and always releases those creases.
What is Your Favourite Swan Product in Your Cleaning Kit?
Steam cleaner as it is so versatile and can tackle many household cleaning tasks.
One of Lynsey’s signature cleaning ‘tools’ is something that anyone can use and you may already have them in your house. When life gives you lemons, clean with them! Not only do they help to brighten up a space, they are a great option for cleaning due to their fresh scent and antiseptic properties. They also have less toxins than your typical out-of-the-bottle cleaning products, are better for the environment and will save you a ton of money. You can use lemons in most areas of your home.
