**Closed** Win a set of food canisters and a bread bin from Brabantia’s Platinum range


I don’t know why we didn’t get a bread bin sooner! – me (met with a slightly exasperated smile from my mum who’s been telling me to get one for ages)

How would you like to win this stunning roll top bread bin and set of canisters in ‘metallic platinum’ from Brabantia, a leading producer of innovative household products?

The bread bin features a base designed for optimum ventilation, can accommodate two large loaves, and has flat tops on which you can store canisters. Meanwhile, the canisters themselves are perfect for coffee, sugar, rice or pasta, feature ‘flavour-seal’ click lids and boast an anti-static window so that you can see  how much is left inside.

We trialled the Platinum range

We love our Brabantia Platinum 1.4L Canisters. They have brought much needed order to my cupboards and look absolutely stunning. They’re big enough to store a 500g pack of pasta and wide enough to store a stack of large biscuits, so they’re just about perfect, I reckon.


The roll top bread bin has been something of a revelation. I’ve long resisted getting one thinking it would use up precious workspace, but this bread bin has a smaller footprint than you might think, looks great, has freed up cupboard space, keeps our bread far fresher than in the cupboard and, thanks to the flat top, offers space for the canisters. I’d fully recommend it.


Finally, this sleek pedal bin is tall and narrow but has an impressive 30L capacity, an inner lift out bucket with collar so there’s no unsightly bag showing outside the bin, and motion control so that there’s no clanging and banging when the bin opens and closes.


In summary, I love this lightweight, stylish, practical range.

Brabantia‘s full metallic Platinum finish range includes:

  • Platinum canisters: 1.4L, 1.7L and 1.4L Window Canisters
  • Touch Bins: 30L, 40L and 50L
  • Pedal Bins: 12L, 20L, 30L (Classic and Motion Control)
  • Breadbins (Roll Top and Fall Front)
  • Bathroom set: Slide bin 5L, toilet brush and holder, toilet roll holder, toilet roll dispenser.

If you’d like to try them out for yourself, Brabantia products are available from leading retailers, including high street department stores, superstores, quality independent housewares and kitchen product specialists.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the top of the page!

Disclosure: we were sent the range for review and Brabantia are providing the canisters and bread bin for giveaway. No payment was received for this post. All posts are 100% honest.

    I use a basket to pile up anything that shouldn’t be in the room its in. Everybody has to then take responsibility for their own thing and put it back where it belongs.

  2. Gail Bennett says

    Combine the spring clean with a declutter … leaves you feeling like your home is soooo much bigger

  3. Elizabeth Ferguson says

    I start downstairs working up over to the bathroom, where I finish with a bubble bath. My tip is always reward yourself, it makes the chores easier to stomach.

  4. Rachel butler says

    Always make a list and if something hasn’t been used it’s time to recycle or donate to
    Charity x

  5. Su Brett says

    Start upstairs, one room at a time, cleaning things in a basket that can carry with you from room to room, plus some bin bags for things no longer need so that you can sort as you go along.

  6. Sam P Toms says

    I love Febreeze pet spray for the home, we spray it on the carpets after hoovering it smells so nice and fresh! Also I love having a clear out of things we don’t need or want any more. And a lick of paint in a cupboard works well to freshen up the storage for my de-cluttered belongings.

  7. christy beckett says

    Start at the top and work your way down, put some music on and have a boogie whilist cleaning. Declutter but try not to get distracted when you find items you thought were lost x

  8. sj wesley says

    Oven cleaner from poundland, it’s cheap and gets your oven racks clean in no time with zero effort x

  9. Kim J Styles says

    Involve the kids with a spray bottle of warm soapy water and a clothe to do skirting or doors they love it!!! you might have to go over it again but they get to feel they have done their bit too

  10. Brenda Cairns says

    Open the windows to let the summer in and winter out . It is the best way to get the fresh air in

  11. caroline kelly says

    Do something little each time you have a spare 5 minutes between programmes, feeding children etc!

  12. Georgia Keogh says

    Do a little a day and a really big clean every couple of weeks. That way it never feels like the house is getting out of control!

  13. lindsey stuart says

    I love the smell of lemon especially in the spring season its so fresh and reminds me of easter :D So i tend to use lemon cleaning products
    My tip for you all is quite unusual but it works – Baby oil rubbed in to your stainless steel handles, taps etc they will end up shining!!! :D Try it :D

  14. Sue Harrison says

    Do one room thoroughly each day, don’t try to do it all at once. Start at the top and work down.

  15. helen booth says

    Don’t set yourself too much to do in one day. Do small cleaning jobs/Spring Cleaning everyday and you wont get fed up!

  16. Anthony Martin says

    In areas with lots of lime in the water – to protect the ends of taps etc cut a lemon in half and use it to wipe the taps and around the plug holes basins shower heads etc – whereever limescale builds – it will stop the horrid white developing from the limescale on each thing

  17. Lorna MacFadyen says

    I clean every day without fail for 30-40 minutes on top of the normal chores of beds, toilet, washing up etc. I feel it cuts down the need for a big deep clean – and wasted sunny spring days stuck indoors!

  18. dawn obrien says

    don’t put off starting the cleaning – start straight after an early breakfast , otherwise it keeps getting put off till the next day, then the next day, etc!

  19. Georgina Jacobs says

    half water half lemon juice mixture – soak some kitchen towels and leave them overnight on a shower screen to eliminate the marks. Love all natural products x thanks

  20. Sheila Reeves says

    Do the spring cleaning in short bursts, try and break it down into manageable times (10/15/20 minutes at a time) use a timer so you don’t get sidetracked

  21. Danielle Stevenson says

    Beyonce really helps me with my spring cleaning. Turning her album up load always make the process seem easier :)

  22. Debbie Davies says

    good dance music on and just get down to it seems to be so much more fun when youre bopping around with a duster in your hand,

  23. Ruth Harwood says

    Use the opportunity to rearrange or redecorate your rooms so they not only look clean but also fresh – a change is as good as a holiday :)

  24. Gerri Tennant says

    Line the grill pan with foil before grilling meat, when you’ve finished just throw the foil away instead of needing to wash a greasy tin it just needs a quick swill.

  25. Marion says

    Pace yourself..Set yourself a goal for each day eg. If I wash the windows and change the curtains I can have some biscuits with my tea lol :D

  26. Andrea Edge says

    Cleaning out all your kitchen cupboards and drawers. You will be amazed at all the junk youve been collecting and how much more space you will have after

  27. Emma Nixon says

    Clean out all your kitchen cupboards.. It’s amazing how old some tinned food is that is lurking at the back….

  28. maxine goodfellow says

    If you haven’t used something for a month, then give it to charity shop and help someone at the same time

  29. Laura Baker says

    Clean the oven regularly and not just once a year! We moved out of our flat recently and cleaning the oven was an absolute nightmare!

  30. Cristina Tudorache says

    We have some Brabantia items already – the laundry bin and the mailbox. The quality of the brand is outstanding and I’d love more of their items.

  31. Nathan Webb says

    Be harsh on yourself and ask yourself if you seriously think you’re likely to use things again any time soon!. Too much clutter can build up because you “hope” you’ll use it, but 5 years later you haven’t!

  32. sarah brooker says

    i get my kids to sort out all there toys before i start – they discover things they’ve forgotten & it keeps them entertained most of the day.

  33. Matthew says

    If you forgot about an item or you havent used it in the last year, then it should be thrown out or given to charity to de-clutter

  34. Alexandra Byford-Scott says

    Remove all tinned & packet food from cupboards every 6 months or more frequently if you like & check the use by dates…bin everything out of date & then put things back with things that need using up first to the front. It will clear space, remove waste & keep your cupboards looking tidy.

  35. Nicola Biven says

    Get your toilet sparkling clean with a few teaspoons of baking soda left to rest for a while will scrub up good as new

  36. Lynne OConnor says

    Get a steam mop with attachments. You’ll save a fortune on cleaning products and get everywhere really clean for little effort

  37. Anne Wallwin says

    to clean your oven put half an orange and half an lemon into a casserole dish of water and put on max for 1 hour. Should be easy to clean oven once it has cooled down.

  38. Karen Usher says

    Start from the top of your house and work your way down. Clean to music and bop along to the beat whilst cleaning! Great workout and makes cleaning fun!

  39. Georgina Jacobs says

    Best spring cleaning tip is start and don’t stop until its done. I start in one room and then start from top to bottom – I love nothing better than to keep things tidy but come spring time everything does need an overhaul. I was decorating last week and I thought that I was clean. But when I took down the curtain poles – my god do you see dust in places that you thought you were on top of. I love to add a few drops of a refreshing aromatherapy scent to my final rinse – I have been known to spritz some of Neom’s room spray in Refresh into the water. Also a lovely tip is to spritz behind the back of the radiators, as the warmth intensifies the aroma, which is very homecoming especially in the dreadful weather we are having at the moment. Thankyou

  40. Amelia Kennedy says

    Don’t forget to vacuum those thick curtains that are “dry-clean only” and therefore rarely actually get to the dry cleaners!

  41. Tracy Nixon says

    Dust before vacuuming or cleaning the floor. Try feather or lambswool dusters, especially extendable ones for reaching above window and door casings and into corners. Household rags are invaluable for jobs requiring a damp cloth and natural fibres work best!

  42. jennifer h says

    start dusting from the ceiling down. That might sound funny, working top to bottom, but when the dust falls from surfaces, it won’t get over anything that’s been cleaned prior
