Milton Sterilising Fluid. The black marks are mould, so a mild disinfectant is needed in order to kill the spores.

Dilute the fluid according to instructions and wipe the seals, paying attention to the folds and allow to air-dry – no need to rinse. Repeat every month or so. If this doesn’t work, maybe it’s time to replace the doors as the seals may be starting to perish. Check that the room where the appliances are stored is free of damp.

Keeping your carpets clean

If you have a lot of foot traffic in your home and like the carpets to be kept clean, fresh and clear of stains, an electric carpet washer is very easy to use and move around.

Take note if you have an open fire

If you use your open fire often over the cooler months, you should have it cleaned every year. In theory you could do it yourself, but you risk damaging the lining, particularly in an older house.

Contact The National Association of Chimney Sweeps (www.nacs.org.uk) for recommendations. Once it’s been swept, you might want to try a maintenance product such as a Chimney Cleaning Log. Although it doesn’t cancel out the need to sweep, it softens and removes tar deposits and reduces the risk of a chimney fire.

Another tip for reducing tar build-up: burn well-seasoned wood and/or smokeless fuel.
