My Sugru arrived today, which put me in a mind to think about small household repairs.

The absolute best way I've found to not procrastinate about sewing repairs is to keep a threaded needle next to the place where I sit to get dressed in the morning. If I see a small hole, I can fix it straight away in less than 30 seconds, which stops it becoming a big hole.

(I wondered if this was too obvious to be worth mentioning, but I only figured it out a couple of years ago, and I'm nearly 40 and have been sewing since I was small, so.)

Have you got any handy hints for household maintenance?

DON'T mix bleach and vinegar!

Oh, and a DON'T:

If you use white vinegar and chlorine bleach (i.e uk household bleach) as cleaners then DON'T allow them to mix as they react chemically and become a deadly toxic nerve gas. Women around the world die every year because they don't know this.
