I thought I might pass on this little tip; when arriving home almost on your knees with several bags of extremely heavy shopping, unpack same and place giant size bottle of fabric conditioner on worktop. Remove jacket, and in doing so ensure that you catch giant bottle with elbow and send it crashing onto tiled floor, where it will split from end to end and a tidal wave of conditioner will surge across your shoes, the kitchen floor, and into the dining room.
Spend the next hour or so trying to clean up slippery liquid which does not want to be absorbed into any kind of cloth or kitchen paper. Then keep filling bucket with hot soapy water and repeatedly mop slippery finish from floor. Lastly, with help, pull out cooker, large and heavy fridge, and dishwasher, and remove all kick boards on kitchen units in order to repeat the above over the next hour or so. Try to ensure that grandchildren, who arrive in middle of exercise, do not hear what you are muttering.
Your home will smell wonderfully of 'Clean Cotton' .
Alternatively, light a scented candle.
