A huge thank you to everyone who entered our competition to win a JML Wonderbroom. We were really overwhelmed by the number and quality of cleaning tips sent in - our readers really are cleaning pros!
Without further ado, I present our winning cleaning tip:
Put the washing machine detergent drawer through the dishwasher every couple of weeks, keeps it clean, Mould free and prevents any build up of products. Alternatively if it’s still in need of more cleaning after the dishwasher then use an old toothbrush and/or cotton buds to get in the harder to reach areas - Kirsty Taylor
We all know how tricky it can be to keep washing machines clean - Kirsty's tip certainly makes this easier. We hope you enjoy your JML Wonderbroom Kirsty - you certainly deserve it!

Special mention goes to the following, runner-up cleaning tips:
Don’t have kids, pets or husbands! Alcohol hand sanitizer will remove almost anything from marker pen to chewing gum. Also putty will get into crevices you can’t such as between buttons on the radio in the car! - Michelle
If only it were that easy, Michelle! If you do have fluffy friends, check out our 19 cleaning tips for pet owners for some extra help.
I'm sure someone has already said something similar, but there are so many comments to wade through! Avoid spending on bottles and bottles of household cleaner.. Save citrus peels in a jar (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit.. whatever you like to eat/smell) and cover when full with white vinegar (you can add some cloves, rosemary or essential oils if you like). Keep for two weeks. Strain. Put in an empty spray bottle and top up with water. Perfect for everywhere! (And it doesn’t small of vinegar, promise!) - Kim
Kudos to Kim for being so inventive with her tip. Learn more uses for leftover fruit and veg peel in our article.
Peanut butter is great for getting any sticky residue of things. Rub it on with a soft cloth then wash. - Robyn Clarke
Although we love the sound of this tip, Robyn (we are onboard with anything that involves peanut butter), we were a little dubious.
