Customer Sheila Cramer brings you our latest Customer Top Tip. It's a bed-making routine we can definitely recommend!

'When I strip the beds I spray the mattress with eucalyptus, re-make the bed and just before pulling up the top sheet I spray lavender, then a few drops of lavender oil onto the pillow and pull the bed cover over the top. Come bedtime I pull back the bed cover, hop in and the freshness feels like little bit of luxury.'

Our latest Top Tip comes from Lauren Knights who recommends using Bosisto's Lavender Spray to keep her car smelling fresh.

'The weather in Queensland has been particularly muggy of late. Having small kids can mean the car gets a bit whiffy from time to time. In-between cleans or if the weather is too wet to leave the windows down, I spray my lavender aerosol onto the seat backs and under the seats before locking the car up for the night.  Note; lavender can be extremely calming apart from its antibacterial and smell-eradicating properties. So be careful not to use it in the car BEFORE you drive anywhere (just after).'

Our first ever Customer Top Tip comes from Tracey Reed who found a great use for our Bosisto's Tea Tree Oil:

'My tip is to use Tea Tree Oil to treat the infections seedy toe and thrush in horses hooves, and then once cured to use it as a preventative.

Sunburn is so last decade.  There is never a good excuse for getting as red as a lobster, not now we’re surrounded with education about harmful UV rays and the dangers of melanoma (http://www.sunsmart.com.au/).  Plus advances in ‘realistic’ looking tanning creams and sprays mean lying around in the sun isn’t just uncool and unhealthy, it’s unnecessary.  

That being said, the most diligent of us have been caught out from time to time, a little pink here or there despite our best efforts – in those cases it’s great to have a cooling, soothing solution on hand.

Let’s face it: mosquitoes are a major buzz kill.

But walking around a party like a stinky chemical factory, or guests choking on clouds of pesticide-laden insect repellent isn’t a whole lot more desirable.

Ditch the toxins and declare your gathering a bug-free zone with these natural repellent candles. They do take a little bit of effort but they look beautiful (especially at dusk) and if you put them in pretty jars they make excellent gifts, too.

Note:  You don’t have to stop at jars – once you get confident making these you can put the candle mixture in anything from clean tin cans to little ceramic flower pots or small colourful metal buckets.  Check out the local $2 shop or Vinnies, and use your creative flair!

There are two things toddlers and puppies have in common.  One, they're both adorable.  Two, they can be, well - a little untrained, in the toileting area.

But that's okay.  Because you have Bosisto's!  Eucalyptus oil with its anitbacterial, stain removing and deodorising properties is pretty much the perfect companion for any toilet-training household, whether it's an gorgeous new ball of fluff or it's time to graduate to the big boy or girl undies.

So read on, because here is the Ultimate Toilet Training Stain Survival Guide (UTTSSG, not as catchy).

With spring now fully apon us, it's time to bust out your rubber gloves and give your home a good spring clean.

But what about those places that most people forget?  Too hard, tucked away... but still gathering dust bunnies all the same.  Time to put them on your cleaning bucket list!

1. Top of the fridge

It's no-man's land up there, a spot few ever venture (except maybe to stretch on tippy toes and shove random things on top). That makes the top of the fridge a prime spot for hardcore grime.

That greasy black film up there is usually a combination of oily grune from the stove top and caked-on dust.

Springtime isn't all happiness and cherry blossoms for some: the 1 in 7 Australians who are hayfever sufferers.   Skin itchiness, sore eyes and nasal congestion can make the simple act of stepping outside an anxiety-inducing prospect.

Short of closing windows and doors and living in a bubble, what's the solution?  Antihistamines might seem like the obvious choice, but some types can have an unwanted drowsy effect - and of course, not everyone wants to take medication.

Instead, try these clever natural solutions to enjoy this beautiful season to its fullest.

Paid cleaning is a wonderful short cut to an organised home - if the household budget allows.

But what if your lotto ticket didn't come in?  Take a speed cleaning lesson from the pros.   Paid cleaning services are masters in the art of efficient cleaning.  Watch them as they work - they don't waste time or dawdle, but they get the job done brilliantly at the same time.

Here's how to clean fast and clean right, with tips from the experts.

1. Schedule your cleaning time

Take a tip from the pros and set up a regular weekly cleaning time.  It might be Saturday morning, or every fortnight on a Sunday.   Whatever time you choose, schedule it and clean with intention until you finish, because you won't get it done in fits and starts.

Note: this spray is also lovely to use while ironing.
