Tips for new home owners

As most of you know, I have been living in my lovely little flat now for around 6 months.  I was very hesitant to live by myself at first (still a little girl at heart) but I sucked it up, took the leap and have not looked back since!

I am not the cleanest of bunnies, but I have suprised myself with how house proud I feel and I have been gathering lots of handy little tips to make sure my flat stays in tip top condition.  I thought it only correct to share these with you!

                                                              Tip One.                                                              
Always make sure, that when you boil a kettle or use the toaster you pull it out from undeneath the kitchen cupboards.  This will prevent unsightly markings and burns on the underneath of your kitchen units which will appear over time.
Tip Two.
To avoid scum build up in your shower, always use a shower spray straight after you get out.  It should be lightly sprayed onto any wet surfaces and allowed to dry.  This will prevent clogged up shower screens and keep your taps, tiles, bath and shower looking sparkly.

Tip Three.
Saving space in a small flat is crucial, and storing bulky bedding can be troublesome.  Try folding up a sheet, pillowcases and duvet cover, then slide them all into a matching pillowcase.  Everything will be crease free and very easy to store.
That is all for now guys, I am off to see my Mum and have a cup of tea.  Have a great day!
