Life Style: Win a pounds 1,000 spring clean.
IT'S spring, the time of year when we all feel obliged to drag out the dusters and the mop and bucket to give the house a proper once over.
The smells and stains left over from those festive parties and family gatherings throughout the winter months all need to be tackled...
But how many of us have got the time or the inclination spend hours with the Hoover?
And who of us wouldn't prefer a visit from someone like clean-up Queens Kim and Aggie?
Unfortunately, Kim and Aggie were otherwise engaged - but we have got the next best thing.
In National Spring Clean Week Look has teamed up with 1001 to offer you the chance to win your very own Spring Clean worth around pounds 1,000.
The leading name in carpet care, 1001, is offering one lucky reader the chance to put their feet up while the 1001 Home Clean Team pay a visit and give their home an expert clean from top to bottom.
Luckily, with the help of 1001, eliminating those unwanted spills and odours has never been easier. With easy-to-use but highly effective products including Troubleshooter and No Vac, carpet cleaning and freshening solutions are always at hand to tackle emergency spills and neutralise unruly odours.
To give your carpets and sofas that much needed facelift, 1001 Troubleshooter is the perfect solution for removing stubborn stains such as red wine and tea instantly, without the need for scrubbing (pounds 2.39 from leading retailers).
It's easy to get a fresh, clean smell back into every room with a quick spray of 1001 No Vac Carpet Freshener. A quick drying, everyday foam freshener you can spray directly onto carpets and fabric upholstery to neutralise trapped odours, it leaves behind a pleasant fragrance without the need to vacuum (pounds 2.49 in a variety of fragrances, from leading retailers).
We have got five goodie bags containing all these great products to give away - but one person could win a total home spring clean.
And all you need to do is tell us why you deserve it. Perhaps you've just moved and can't face the mess. Maybe you're a busy mum and struggle to find the time to pick up a duster or perhaps you just hate cleaning. Send your letters, together with your name, address and daytime phone number, by April 19, to: Look/Spring Clean Competition, c/o Janet Tansley, Features Department, Liverpool ECHO, PO Box 48, Old Hall Street, Liverpool L69 3EB.
The entries we consider the best will win and have their stories featured in the ECHO. Usual competition rules apply.
