4 essential tips for making next Christmas easier

With December drawing to a close and Christmas finally over, it’s time to put away the decorations. Avoid the hassle of finding and removing them all tangled and a mess next year with these great organisation tips.

 

Baubles 

Baubles are stored in all sorts of ways and are usually the easiest to find and keep. This doesn’t mean they can’t be stored better though. One simple idea for bauble storage is using an old egg box. They can be slot in and kept both safe and dry ready for next year. This idea isn’t just suited to baubles though as it can apply to all small trinkets that will fit. Another idea for bauble storage is to use clear plastic bags to sort them into their types/colours, making them easy to find and use next time.

 

Tree 

Many people choose to store their artificial tree back in the box it came in. Although the idea is good, this is not always practical or good for the tree. The boxes often deteriorate leaving the tree exposed to dampness which will often make the tree lose its quality. On top of this, storing the tree in a small flat space in that manor will often leave the tree lop-sided. A good way to store the tree is to fold up its branches and wrap the tree in either shrink wrap or (if it splits) wrap up the parts in old sheets. These will protect the tree and preserve its shape ready for next year. 

 

Lights 

The age old problem when setting up your Christmas decorations is the untangling of the lights. The best way to avoid this is to correctly put them away. The good thing about most Christmas lights is that they come in long strings meaning the best way to put them away is to wrap them up. One method of doing this is to use a coat hanger. This will stop them from getting tangled and allow them to be stored in a small space or be hung up. The next best method to wrap them up is to use a large postage tube. As well and keeping them tangle free the postage tube is better as it is bigger and can store more lights such as those which decorate the exterior of a house

 

Garland beads 

Similar to the lights these are often found knotted up and mixed with lots of other lights or garlands. An easy way to store these is to use plastic bottles. Simply thread the beads into a water bottle. The average water bottle will hold up to two different garlands.

Bespoke Service

We are not happy until you are! Your cleaner will usually tailor their services to fit exactly with your requirements, including spring cleaning and ironing.

Peace of Mind

Only 1 in 50 applicants makes it on to our carefully screened database. We interview them twice, visit them in their own homes and take up at least two references. And if they still subsequently don't measure up to your standards, we will send you someone who does.

Personal Cleaner

We don't operate in teams, and therefore you get the same cleaner every week. This is good because you develop a relationship with your cleaner. We have some clients who have had the same cleaner for years and years - and that's what we want for you.

COVID-19 5th January Update

 

Just to let you know we are open for business as usual and you can continue to have your cleaner clean your house.

The government has made it clear that cleaners are still permitted to work inside peoples' homes as long as Government Guidelines on social distancing and staying safe are followed (see below). In summary:

You can be outside of your home for work purposes where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home, including if your job involves working in other people's homes.

The full text can be found here New National Restrictions from 5 January (in England; there are similar texts available for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland). Specifically relating to cleaners, the guidance continues: 'This guidance applies to those working in, visiting or delivering to home environments. These include, but are not limited to, people working in the following areas:

  • 'This can include work in other people's homes where necessary - for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople (this is not an exhaustive list)'

Note this guidance is for people who are fit and well, and is dependent on the following social distancing guidelines being followed:

  • No work should be carried out in a household where people are isolating or where an individual is being shielded.
  • The cleaners can continue work, providing that they are well and have no symptoms. No work should be carried out by a cleaner who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild, or when someone in their own household has symptoms.
  • No work should be carried out in a household where any occupants are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus, or households with a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus.
  • Whilst in the house. a cleaner should maintain a safe distance of at least two metres from any household occupant at all times, and ensure good ventilation in the area where they are working, including opening the window.
  • Upon entering the home, cleaners should wash their hands using soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Cleaners should wash their hands regularly, particularly after blowing their nose, sneezing or coughing, and when leaving the property.

The good news with regard to cleaning is that the cleaners can social distance from their clients very easily, and we would advise that, if you are at home when they are there, that you remain in a separate room to your cleaner.

If you are happy to adhere to the government guidelines - and if your cleaner has not been in touch already - then please just call the office and we will ensure that your cleaning continues.

Best regards
