We work so hard to create a beautiful, functional home. Unfortunately, unexpected issues can sometimes stand in the way of a happy home life. We are therefore looking at six of the most common household problems and how to fix them. Dirty Windows Nothing can ruin a stunning view quite like dirty windows. All it takes is some raindrops to fall onto your window to create unwanted stains on windows, which can prevent natural light from entering the room. When this happens, we recommend filling a spray bottle with white vinegar and spraying it onto your windows. Allow the vinegar to sit on the pane for a few minutes before wiping the glass clean with a microfiber cloth. You’ll restore your view in less than half an hour.

If you do become involved in an accident, you might not be able to think about what you should be doing. It might not sound like the best time, but you need to focus on what you need to do and any records you need to keep. It may be that no-one is at fault, however, if you don’t take the information down, it will be difficult to answer questions later. Here are some of the things that you can do to record the scene and gather as much evidence as possible.
