1. of 8 DIY healthy home tips you need to know Houseplants

Indoor houseplants can be hidden sources of mould. Be careful not to over-water plants, as the dampness encourages mould growth. Mould releases spores into the air which can cause allergies.

While you lie in bed ‘snug as a bug’ you’re closer to the truth than you might think. Warm, humid conditions make the perfect breeding ground for dust mites and as you shed skin-cells on your bedclothes you’re providing lots of food for the little critters. Vacuum your mattress regularly – use a mattress tool for maximum effect to get rid of those nasty mites.

Rugs collect a lot of dust, skin-cells and dirt. People can lose up to 28g of skin a week – that’s the equivalent of a bag of chips – a dust mite’s paradise. Don’t let dust mites get comfortable in your home. Shake rugs outside to get rid of dust and dirt and then vacuum thoroughly to make sure you remove the dust mites and their droppings. Remember to take care when vacuuming delicate rugs. Ensure that the brush bar is switched off and use the escape valve to reduce suction.

While your cat is meticulously licking its fur to clean and groom itself, it is actually transferring allergens from its saliva into your house. These can cause itchy noses, runny eyes and even asthma, so vacuum regularly to say goodbye to sneezes – bless you.

Not all floor tools are designed for all floor types. For an excellent clean on carpets look for a floor tool that has a rotating brush bar. The bristles agitate the carpet to release more embedded dirt and dust.

British born but having lived overseas for the past 17 years, my life has seen me saying farewell to the damp grey skies of the UK for a life of nibbling warm baguettes in France and now I’m found enjoying the hot, often sticky but always colourful days of Singapore. Living the happy life with my hubby, our 2 boys, 4 guinea pigs and 2 dogs, when I'm not busy with family and pets I I do enjoy my well deserved ‘me’ time. I love to throw myself into writing and I hope everyone will find my work something of interest, inspiration or just a good read!
