Nicola, (@_thisgirlcanorganise), author of Mind Over Clutter, has these tips to help keep things tidy
“I hate to throw away single use plastic, so I reuse grape boxes as containers for the bottom of my fridge.”Takeaway cartons are great for organising small items that belong in your kitchen junk drawer and large juice bottles are fab for storing and pouring the kids cereal.
“With a little bit of creativity, you can create so many useful containers to be placed inside your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom drawers.”This will bring you clarity – plus you are also saving items from being thrown to landfill or floating in our oceans.”Emily Norris
Kika Mitchell Emily, (@mrsemilynorris), of Channel Mum.com, gets your clutter sorted with these quick fixes
“If you find that a room takes longer than ten minutes to clean, it’s time to declutter and minimalise.Set time aside to go through each room and only keep things you love or use.”Go through your wardrobe every season and donate unworn and unloved items to charity. At the same time, go through make-up and beauty products.”Aim to have a place for everything — think about problem areas and get creative. Can you fit a sliding cupboard under the stairs for shoes and bags? Hooks on the back of doors for towels and baskets for toys?”They don’t cost much but can make your home seem more spacious.”Lynsey Mayhew
Lynsey Mayhew, (@lynsey_queenofclean), author of How To Clean Your House And Tidy Up Your Life has these natural fixes
“Use baby oil to shine stainless steel and use tumble drier sheets to dust blinds and TV screens.”Cola is great for getting rid of stubborn toilet marks, while white wine vinegar is great for getting rid of mould in bathrooms – just leave it for ten minutes and then rinse.”For another natural cleaning hack, use half a lemon and some bicarbonate of soda to tackle limescale and water marks on shower screens.”

Rex Features Mrs Hinch gives these tips in her book, Hinch Yourself Happy, for using her favourite product Zoflora
To ensure a germ-free bin that smells nice, soak a cloth in diluted Zoflora and wipe it out, not forgetting the lid and surrounding areas, inside and out.
Keep your bin fresh smelling for longer by diluting your favourite Zoflora disinfectant in a trigger spray containing water, then spray directly on to the rubbish in the bin.
You can even soak kitchen roll in Zoflora and pop it in the bottom of your bin, before adding the bag. Dilute Zoflora in water in the sink and leave your dishcloths to soak.
Do this at the end of every day then, by the next morning, your kitchen will be7 fresh-smelling and dish cloths hygienic.
