Cleaning a stainless steel sink
Ensure you have a good quality steel cleanser and a non-abrasive sponge or cloth and rub the entire sink with it.
When cleaning the sink always rub in the direction of the finish and use a tooth brush to get into the tight corners.
Wash the cleanser off and dry the sink carefully with a clean towel or cloth, dabbing instead of rubbing. Make sure it is completely dry so that water spots don’t form.
Tips for cleaning your BBQ
To maintain a clean BBQ you need nothing more than a lemon and some newspaper.
After using your BBQ, simply rub the plate with half a lemon and scrape away any remaining dirt and then simply wipe down with newspaper.
Before using your BBQ, heat the plate and again wipe down with half a lemon to give it a quick clean and you’re ready to go.
Never put any man-made chemicals anywhere near your BBQ as they will remain on your grill after you have rinsed it and it may affect both the flavour and quality of your food.

How to clean a microwave
Simply place 2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and the juice of half a lemon (optional) in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes. If the microwave is really dirty, leave the door shut for about two more minutes and let the steam continue to do its cleaning magic. The steam and the vinegar will help loosen up caked on bits of food and eliminate any odors. Be careful removing the bowl as it will be hot. You also need to remove the turntable tray and this will be hot too. Now simply wipe down the microwave with a damp cloth or sponge and the food will come right off.
