Well done on identifying some of your household QRM, always great to have a wife willing to help
I did the same some time back now, changed lights from the noisy ones and identified other issues. It's just the wife's hairdryer, the vacuum cleaner, the washing machines fast spin cycle and the bathroom extractor that are the main culprits now.
I could fork out for ferrites and try to 'cure' them but my wife is fantastic, she always notifies me of her intent to use any of the above devices and whether I will be on the radio or not.
Some moan about the 'station manager' or XYL.....I couldn't have a better one!
All the best,

Good luck on eliminating all the qrm, Ian. Unfortunately it is the curse of working hf in the modern era.
