Fixing a home appliance yourself actually feels good.
I’m quite used to fixing home appliances in front of the camera for the eSpares how-to videos. It’s a completely different kind of working day from the usual meetings and sitting at my desk. I really enjoy taking appliances apart and discovering (usually) how easy it is to fit spare parts and get them working again. Fixing it in front of the camera and thinking about how we can make the process as clear as possible for the viewer is sometimes challenging, but it’s incredibly rewarding too; particularly when we get customer comments through the eSpares site or through YouTube. Most viewers really appreciate the effort that we’ve gone to in helping them fix their appliance.Read more

Over the past few weeks a lot of the UK has bathed in beautiful, and very warm, sunshine. And while the weather has been perfect for heading down to the beach for the day or playing Frisbee in the park, it’s a decidedly more stressful time for garden owners across the country as they try in vain to keep their lawns from turning in to parched wastelands. The damper weather this week has offered some respite, but summer can still be a testing time for lawn wranglers.
