    Hi Kat. I would love to know which mop you keep in your cleaning kit? I generally use a steam mop to do a thorough clean each week, but would love your recommendation for an alternative everyday mop for those areas that get messy very quickly, such as under the kitchen table! Thanks xxReplyCancel

    • I use the Vileda micro fibre mop which you can get at Woolworths, I love it, it glides so easily over the tiles. I have tried quite a few in the past and honestly this vileda mop makes the job so much quicker compare to the sponge type of mops. The mop also has a special vileda bucket you need to purchase with the mop as well.ReplyCancel

    I use a file rack from Officeworks for my trays and chopping boards. It’s a flat one rather than a stepped rack, I just laid it on its side and it works a treat – I have all my small baking trays, pizza trays and chopping boards and they just slide out without having to move anything.ReplyCancel

    I have used trellis and cable ties to protect my tree in the past(kids are all older now), you can buy some cheap spray paint to pretty it up…I also festooned tinsel around it, and let the kids put a few packets of $2 shop baubles around itReplyCancel
