    So what gets the bath clean when you have a green acrylic bath that looks like it has a fine covering of talc on it? We are in a soft water area.

    My wife tried 2 litres of white vinegar. It didn't work but it kept the neighbours away for a few days.

    Try thin bleach in a spray bottle. Spray it and leave it for 20 mins, then rinse.

    by 'pickling vinegar' do you mean whats left when you finish a jar of pickled onions? I do use this. Otherwise something called 'pickling vinegar' would be fine too I think.

    Any suggestions for something cheap and natural to cure my stinky bin? My sink smells a bit too. Am not a domestic goddess as you can probably tell!

    I bought i large bottle of pickling vinegar (its white) to do my own pickles but unfortunately i never got round to doing it :-/

    Im assuming its just the same as normal vinegar

    Vinegar is a deoderiser, maybe soak a tissue in it and put it in the bin??

    wash the bin first dry it well then sprinkle bicarb into the bottom
    a bit of lemon juice if youve got it

    line it if its the kichen bin and try to throw food scraps into a carrier bag or old plazzy bag first and rinse empty cans out before you sling them out

    much fresher and cleaner bin then

    bicarb soaks up smells

    put a small dish of it in the fridge

    exellent
