Dylon fabric dye – does it work? I answer your questions!

In the past if I had clothes that looked worn I would just throw them in the bin. Eventually. However, I want to waste less money and I hate clothes shopping. Since having my c-section I am really struggling with finding trousers that actually fit nicely, without hurting my stomach. I’ve got one pair of jeans that I absolutely love and they are really comfortable. I’m able to work down the allotment in them and walk long distances without pain. They had seen better days though. Significantly better days. For a while I was wearing them faded and wasn’t really bothered. That is until I saw a photo of me wearing them. I knew then that I had to either find more jeans that I enjoy OR I had to give my favourite jeans a dye. I picked up this Dylon fabric dye and set to work.

Using disinfectant around my home (AD)

AD. I first started using disinfectant around my home when I was pregnant with my daughter back in 2015. So many people seem to be using Zoflora now, partly because of a number of influencers who recommend it in their Instastories and on their feeds. I love that Zoflora is increasing in popularity as they bring out lots of lovely scents regularly and I can go on a hunt in the supermarket to find my favourites. Also, I love that disinfectant is really reasonably priced, compared to other branded cleaning products. A little goes a long way and today I want to talk to you about the ways that I use disinfectant around my home. Also, if you’re reading this because you’re looking for gentler ways to clean then be sure to check out my quick way to clean a microwave – in just 2 minutes!

Staying healthy is important to me and I have found that antibacterial sprays and disinfectants are great at helping with this. I make sure not to overuse them but if I have an area of my home that needs to be free of germs, such as the bathroom or kitchen sink, then I find disinfectant fantastic for this.

Review: Shark Steam Mop S6001UK (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured item in exchange for coverage. This year, mostly thanks to the good people at AO, I have been well and truly converted to Shark products. I have two Shark vacuum cleaners, have gifted my Mum a Shark vacuum cleaner and now I have been gifted a Shark Steam Mop from AO. As I love a bit of cleaning (30 minutes a day most days!) I thought I’d tell you what I think after using this for a couple of weeks.

Review: Morphy Richards Saturn Steam 305000 2400W Iron (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Ironing… One single word that can emit a huge groan from most people. Whether you are a fan of ironed bedsheets and pants, or just using your iron for the bare minimum (weddings and school photos), it is inevitable that at some point you’re going to need to get the iron out. In our home, my husband does most of the ironing, which I’m really grateful for. Although this is mostly because he wears ironed clothes and I rarely mind if mine are ironed. The good people at AO recently sent me the Morphy Richards Saturn Steam (model number 30500) to review and I want to share my thoughts with you.

Review: Shark DuoClean Corded with Flexology HV390UK (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Recently my lovely Mum had open heart surgery, and therefore her old vacuum cleaner was no longer suitable for her. I was looking for something lighter, and more convenient for my Mum to use, to help her keep her home clean and also be easy on her chest while it is healing. As I have heard great things about Shark before I opted to choose her the Shark DuoClean Corded with Flexology HV390UK, which is £149 and you can buy it from AO. I’ve given this vacuum a run for its money, to ensure that it is going to be suitable for my Mum, and I want to share with you my Shark DuoClean Corded with Flexology HV390UK review.

Firstly you can use this vacuum as a small handheld, which is fantastic. This is ideal for clearing up crumbs, going along the tops of radiators or window ledges and even cleaning the car (with an extension lead of course!). Although, saying that, the cord on this is a fantastic 10 metres!
