Spring clean up your act

The mornings are lighter, the evenings are longer, and you haven’t had to put the electric blanket on in weeks. Yep, spring is definitely here.

Okay, okay, we’re not quite ready to get our legs out just yet. But festival season will be here before you know it, and we’ll all be breaking out our swimsuits and rushing to the nearest beach in no time.

However, if like us you’ve not entirely stuck to your New Year’s resolutions since the second week of January, and instead welcomed the harsh winter with creamy hot chocolates and hearty stews, it might be time to give yourself a bit of a spring clean as well as your home and closets.

We’ve put together a handy list of essential products that will help you shake off the winter and get ship-shape for spring.

10,000 Salads recipe book

10,000 Salads

Spring is the perfect time of year to start enjoying healthy salads and as the old saying goes, getting fit starts in the kitchen. This flipbook from Susanna Tee serves up a ton of ideas to help prevent yourself getting bored by the same old leafy salads. Broken up into three sections - salad types, dressings and toppings - you can create thousands of delicious salad combinations to help you stay inspired.

Side Note: We've found that preparation is the key (well, one of them) to sticking to that healthy eating programme. and we've got some great products to help store those carefully prepped meals.

Box Appetit Lunch Box

Box Appetit

With all those salad recipes, you’ll need something suitable to store them in. That’s where the Box Appetit Lunch Box comes in. The innovative design includes a lockable transparent lid (because no one likes a soggy salad), a sauce pot for your favourite dressings, and an inner-dish that’s suitable for microwaves. So now there’s no excuse not to take a salad to work. A Little Freckle is a big fan, and we are too.

WaterBobble Sport


We all know that drinking plenty of water (8 to 10 glasses, to be precise) is important for staying healthy, but how many of us actually do it? Well, the WaterBobble Sport just made staying hydrated a whole lot easier. With an electro-positive carbon filter, it removes chlorine and organic contaminants from tap water, which means you can enjoy clean, great tasting water wherever, whenever. It's also got "Sport" in the name - so it's got to be good for you, right?

Pill Box

Pill Box

Another way to stay nice and healthy is to make sure that you’re getting all the right vitamins. And what better way to store your supplements than with this funky Pill Box?

Donkey Milk Soap


It’s important to look after the outside as well as the inside, so we recommend Donkey Milk Soap. Packed full of vitamins, anti-bacterial agents and special verbena extract, it has rich properties that promote cell proliferation and replacement, making it the ideal anti-wrinkle moisturiser. Even Cleopatra swore by it, bathing in asses’ milk as part of her daily beauty regime.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
