In this section on Grandma’s tips, you’ll find all sorts of traditional domestic tips used by our mothers and grandmothers. They often save time and money, and will surprise you with how inventive and effective they are.

Today’s tip:

Bicarbonate of soda is an excellent natural cleaner for your kitchen. You can use it to:

  • Keep smells at bay. To keep your fridge or cupboard fresh, leave a small, open bowl of bicarbonate of soda inside. Or sprinkle some at the bottom of your kitchen dustbin and it will keep bad smells away.

  • Cleani acid-sensitive surfaces like granite or marble. This is a great alternative if you want a natural cleaner but can't use lemon juice and vinegar, which can corrode some surfaces. Make a paste by mixing with a little water, then rub onto your surface.

  • Keep drains free from blockages. Once a week, pour down a little bicarbonate of soda mixed with water, and rinse clear.

  • Remove tea and coffee stains. Soak stained mugs in a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and hot water.
