Congratulations to Maria Helena! She trumped hundreds of housekeepers across the whole of London to win this year’s Housekeeper of the Year award and a £150 prize.

6 Fast and Easy Ways To Remove Dog Hair From Your Furniture

Rachael

Does pet hair go everywhere around your home? You see it all over your floors, sofa, curtains and even clothes! We love our pets too much to get too annoyed with them. 

If this is really bothering you, we suggest you groom your dog more often, cover the furniture with a sheet or towel and train them not to climb on furniture. 

You cannot prevent all pet hair from being shed around your home. We share our top tips to help you clean up after your beloved pet. 

1. Use a lint roller

Using a lint roller will help clean the hair that is stuck to your sofa. It is easy and you can go over the furniture and clothes or even the dog itself!  Using a lint roller will not harm the dog or the furniture.

2. Use tape

Another way of removing the stubborn dog hair from furniture is by using tape. Just flatten a section of sticky tape against the furniture, leave it for a bit and peel it off. Duct and masking tape are perfect for this case, but you might need to repeat the process...

How to improve your cleaning efficiency with new technology?

Rachael

Technology innovation is one of the most discussed topics nowadays. Many cleaning tools have been electrified and updated to help us clean faster and easier.

Many ingredients in common household products have been linked to health problems. Using innovative technology tackles environmental issues and makes our lives easier. In this post, we share some new technologies that can improve your health and the environment as well.

ROBOTIC VACUUM CLEANERS

Robotic vacuum cleaners have been around for some time. The technology is constantly improving, and they now have the potential to revolutionise the way we clean.

It would be the best solution if you have a busy lifestyle. Let the new technology do the dirty work, while you enjoy your free time.

How to clean leather

Ali

Our ancestors first used leather to protect themselves from the elements. Since then, we have adapted leather’s durability and beauty to use it in apparel, furniture and fashion accessories.

Leather products are a style statement. However, as a natural material, it needs special treatment when it comes to cleaning.

 It is preferable to minimally treat your leather products and to use natural cleaners to avoid damage. Always spot test a cleaning product on a small area before using on the entire area.  You don’t want to damage your beautiful leather furniture by mistake!

It’s important to realize that if you are cleaning a suede product, the treatment is not the same as cleaning leather. 

So, let’s get started on how to take care of your favorite leather products.

 

Furniture

Leather furniture is a must-have choice when it comes to owning a durable and sleek piece of furniture. Though, most love to own it but lack the...
