When your carbon steel wok develops a tacky surface…

Heat the wok over the hob until very hot, then remove from the heat.

Add a tablespoon of salt, then about a teaspoon of vegetable oil.

Using a scrunched up piece of kitchen towel, give the surface a good scrub (careful not to burn yourself) until it feels as if most of the gummy residue has come off the pan and onto the towel.

Rinse under the hot tap.

How to keep your nails clean when gardening

Gardening gloves are sometimes awkward, and rubber gloves are plain odd in the garden.

I don’t like getting soil right under my nails, though, as it takes so long to clean out. What I do is stick a bar of soap under the warm tap then run my nails down the length of the bar.

That way, the space under the nails is taken up and there’s no spare room for the dirt! Good, too, for little ones when they’re painting or making mud pies.

Afterwards, just take a wet nailbrush gently along the undersides.

Dishwasher not working properly?

Check for food waste trapped in the filter (which ends up back on the dishes).

Remove and clean with a soft brush under the tap.

Then do this weekly.

Affected by woodworm?

Grubs are the culprits as they tunnel through the wood while they feed, then as adults they fly away, leaving behind pinhole exit marks.

If you think your furniture might be affected, treat as quickly as possible with a specialist solution from hardware shops – you don’t want any structural wood in your home to be attacked.
