4 Tips For Hosting an Airbnb

Airbnbs are becoming more popular each year and along with hotels, they’re at the top of the pecking order regarding hospitality. Hosting Airbnb takes a lot of planning, attention to detail and commitment. With the right mindset, you can be successful and get good reviews from guests. Here are 4 tips for hosting an Airbnb!

1. Be Clear In Your Listing

When you upload your Airbnb profile, the messaging is very important. Be clear about what your Airbnb offers. List all the essential amenities, talk about the location’s convenience (if it’s close to the shops or a train station), parking, WIFI connection etc. State the check-in and check-out times clearly.

Don’t forget to include pictures. Not only does this help with first impressions but it gives the potential guest an idea of what the room looks like. However, when you are hosting an Airbnb, don’t over-exaggerate information because you won’t manage customer expectations well.

2. Greet Your Guests

Greeting your guests when they first arrive is an important tip when hosting an Airbnb. First impressions count and it’s always great to make them feel welcomed when they arrive. Start a small chat and let them know you are available should they have any questions. Being responsive goes a long to building trust and it helps guests settle.

3. Keep A Cleaning Schedule

Your Airbnb should be spotless. In times like this, hygiene is everything. Poorly cleaned Airbnb or hotels get the most vocal negative reviews. Make sure your Airbnb is praised for its cleanliness. Prioritise keeping a cleaning schedule for your bathroom and toilet and leave a nice freshener in the hallway.   

4. Partner Up With A Laundry Service

As Airbnb hosts, you can’t do everything on your own. That’s why Laundryheap is available for you! Our on-demand service provides laundry for your items. What’s more, you can also rent our fresh bed linens and towels. Partner with us so we can contribute to giving your guests the best experience and stay!

Hosting an Airbnb does come with challenges, but it is also rewarding! Nothing beats the feeling of knowing your guests are thankful for letting them stay at a place they can relax and feel at home.

Sights To See In Bahrain

Bahrain is a country located in Western Asia and a major tourist attraction for many due to its rich history. In a country that is known for its architecture, culture and museums, visitors have plenty of things to do. Here are the amazing sights to see in Bahrain.

Sights To See In Bahrain

1. Muharraq

One of the sights to see in Bahrain is Muharraq. If you are visiting Bahrain to explore its history further, we recommend Muharraq because it dates back to the Dilmun Civilisation and used to be the capital. The most iconic place to see in Muharraq is the Sheikh Ebrahim Bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research. A place that is enriched with heritage.

Muharraq isn’t just known for its historical attractions, however. If you love football, you can visit the local team’s stadium too.

2. Bahrain National Museum

For a proper dive into Bahrain’s history, we recommend visiting the national museum in Bahrain. You’ll marvel at the architecture around it as you are walking toward the museum. There is so much more to offer when you go inside the museum.

3. Bahrain National Theatre

Bahrain’s national theatre is a must-see sight in Bahrain due to its majestic presence and iconic status in the Arab world. Currently, it is the third-largest theatre in the Arab world with a seating capacity of 1,001! If you love entertainment, you’ll love this theatre for its charm!

4. Bahrain International Circuit

The Bahrain International Circuit is one of the best sporting sights to see in Bahrain. The circuit has become a big attraction among Formula One fans and traditionally hosts the Grand Prix. Not only was this circuit the first in the Middle East to host a Formula One Grand Prix but it was also awarded the best ‘Organised Grand Prix’. If you really love cars, you can hop on a race car and ride along the F-1 track!

5. Wahooo! Water Park

If you’re travelling with family, the Wahooo! Water park is a beautiful sight to see in Bahrain. The waterpark is packed with rides, games, and pools to relax in. You and your family will have a great day out in this water park, especially if you go on super fun rides like Master Blaster, Matt Racer, Wave Pool etc.

Your clothes will get wet but you can always contact us to help you get them cleaned and ironed!

The water park is in the city centre that is home to the malls and restaurants.  Once your family have experienced the water park, you can go look around the shops in Bahrain or go for a nearby meal.

The sights in Bahrain are breathtaking with the perfect mixture of historical and modern attractions. If you are planning to visit, we wish you a great trip to a great country!

If you are staying for a week, consider booking a service with Laundryheap! We can handle your laundry for you while you enjoy your trip with no laundry hassle!

Benefits of Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets are valued in the laundry world and with good reason. Seen as an alternative to wool dryer balls, dryer sheets are thin squared pieces of polyester fabric that help with static control and also soften the fabrics. In this blog, we’ll go through the benefits of dryer sheets.

Fabrics Will Smell Fresh

When discussing the benefits of dryer sheets, it’s difficult not to include their effectiveness in making your fabrics smell fresh. This is because dryer sheets have a fragrance that adds a lovely scent to your clothes.

Softer Fabrics

Clothes getting stuck together, inside the tumble dryer, is a common problem and this is usually due to static electricity. In turn, this forms wrinkles on your clothes. The good news is that with dryer sheets, this problem can be prevented. Dryer sheets will help soften your fabrics and reduce wrinkles.

Makes Ironing Easier

In addition, dryer sheets make ironing easier for you. Dryer sheets reduce wrinkles and prevent lint on your clothes. As a result, this makes your ironing easier as there will be fewer stubborn wrinkles to deal with.

Much like dryer sheets, Laundryheap can also make ironing easier for you as we can do it for YOU! Just book an ironing service with us!

Reduce Static On Your Clothes

One of the important benefits of dryer sheets is that they reduce static electricity when the tumble dryer is running. Static electricity happens when two different materials rub against each other. This can be dangerous as static may cause fires if a spark ignites.

Thanks to dryer sheets, static is reduced because the dryer sheets are there to balance the electrons with irons.

Other Uses

Furthermore, dryer sheets also have other uses. If you have pets and are frustrated by the pet hair on your furniture or clothes, dryer sheets can help get rid of pet hair by simply rubbing the sheets against your clothes. Another use is that you can reduce the odours from your gym clothes by putting your used dryer sheets in your shoes, gym bags etc.

Another surprising benefit of dryer sheets is they are great for wiping computer or television screens. Due to their ability to reduce static cling, they can remove dust from your screens.

Dryer sheets are great to use whenever you have a cycle to run on your tumble dryer. We hope you consider the benefits of dryer sheets!

What You’ll Need to Remove Egg Stains

Before we get cracking, these are the list of supplies you will need to remove the egg stains:

  • Spoon (or a butter knife)
  • Brush
  • Water (salt is optional)
  • Liquid Laundry detergent

Instructions on Removing Egg Stains

After you’ve got all your supplies ready, it’s time to rescue your clothes!

  1. Firstly, use your spoon to remove the egg stain from the outside of your clothes. Don’t worry too much about the inside of your fabric for now. Scraping the stained part to remove as much of the egg as possible. This also works with a butter knife.
  • When you’ve done scraping with a spoon, proceed to rinse your egg-stained clothes with cold water and start scraping the egg-stained part to soften it.

Additionally, we strongly advise against using hot water. Eggs are protein; hot water will only cook the protein and will damage the fabric!

  • After you’ve used a spoon and finished rinsing your clothes, we recommend putting a laundry detergent (read the label first) on the egg-stained part for better and cleaner results. Simply pour a detergent directly onto the egg stain and using the same brush as before, spread it out. It’s important to stay patient as egg stains do need care and attention.
  • Fourthly, you will need to load your egg-stained clothes into the washing machine. Don’t rinse off the liquid detergent as it will help make the cleaning more seamless.

However, before you do load, always read the labels on your clothes for better care.

  • Moreover, place the correct amount of liquid detergent into the washing machine. If you feel unsure about the correct dose, use a pre-treat cap to guide you.
  • Start your washing machine with the regular cycle and the hottest temperature (depending on the instructions and labels on your clothes.
  • After your cycle is finished, unload to check if the egg stains are removed. If you’re happy with the results, start to dry your clothes!

On-Demand Laundry Service Laundryheap Acquires Laundrapp!

Laundryheap has completed the acquisition of Laundrapp, one of the key competitors in the UK laundry market industry. Founded in 2014 as a start-up on-demand laundry service, Laundryheap’s mission was to give the public a convenient laundry service and the growth certainly hasn’t stopped! Acquiring Laundrapp is a testament to the astronomical rise of Laundryheap.

What does this mean for Laundryheap?

The acquisition of Laundrapp means Laundryheap has expanded its regional reach across the UK, making us the market leader in the UK. Previously, Laundrapp acquired Wash box and merged with competitor Zipjet.

CEO and Founder Deyan Dmitrov made the following comments:

‘The acquisition of Laundrapp is a testament to the resilience of our model and ongoing demand for high-quality, reliable on-demand laundry services. We’re delighted to be expanding our UK footprint‘ Source: City A.M

Essentially, this also means Laundryheap’s customer base has increased. The hard work doesn’t stop, and the mission and objectives will remain the same. Laundryheap will still make it a key priority to give you, the consumer, the best on-demand laundry service that is fast, easy, and convenient for your laundry duties!

Laundry Made Easier with Laundryheap

What will happen to Laundrapp?

Laundrapp’s employees will be retained. Before the acquisition of Landrapp, both laundry services worked to make laundry easier for everyone and this won’t change now! We are looking forward to welcoming the team from Laundrapp and getting involved in working together!

Over the coming months, however, the Laundrapp brand will be replaced by the Laundryheap brand.

What’s next for Laundryheap?

The magnitude of Laundryheap’s success has been massive. Operating globally in countries such as UAE, Denmark, Singapore, Netherlands, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Ireland and USA was a success in its own right. Becoming the main market leader in the UK now bodes well for the future. There is still a (laundry) list of goals and objectives that we’ll work on.

The focus on helping the environment, even more, remains a priority still. Laundryheap has recently invested in e-cargo bikes. It’s great that customers get their laundry cleaned within 24 hours but doing it in a sustainable way is the icing on the cake!

Guide To Cleaning Aprons

Cleaning Aprons is a big duty after you’ve left the kitchen. They take care of us, by protecting our clothes from germs and stains, so it’s only fair we take care of them. If you spent a lot of time in the kitchen, you’ll know why it’s essential to keep aprons clean.

What’s The Best Way to Clean Aprons?

Whether you’ve cooked, brewed coffee, or owned a restaurant, we could imagine how messy the kitchen gets and naturally, aprons will get dirty. Cleaning aprons can be a daunting task but fortunately, there are ways to make this easier for you.

Hand washing

If your apron isn’t very dirty and you just need a few stains to be removed, handwashing would be the solution. Simply start off by filling a bucket with hot water and soak your apron in it. Afterwards, pour lemon juice and table salt on the dirty stains.

You always want to be prepared – check if the weather is warm and hang your aprons outside. If it starts to rain, leave your aprons to dry in a drying rack.

Finally, rinse the apron once again with water to remove any salt remaining and dry it once more to ensure the fabric remains of good quality!

Laundry

When it comes to cleaning aprons, laundry can also be effective.

As a rule of thumb, always read the Apron label to see if its material is suited for laundry, ironing or dry cleaning. For Nylon and PVC aprons, we advise against machine washing.

Using the washing machine when cleaning aprons needs careful planning and awareness. We recommend washing the aprons separately from other clothing. Separate white aprons from bright or darker clothing or aprons to avoid colour mixing.

Cleaning Aprons may need their own special laundry day to avoid strings tangling with other clothes or aprons. However, you can always tie the apron’s strings together in a bow as a solution.

For better results, always read labels on the cleaning liquids to make sure they match the apron colour. Brightly coloured or darker aprons are cleaned with colour-safe liquids to maintain quality.

As a general rule, aprons are laundered for 30 minutes.

A reminder that all apron materials have different washing needs. Cotton Denim and Cotton Canvas are better washed separately as colours may latch on each other.

We offer laundry, ironing and dry-cleaning services to help you out if your work or business gets too busy.

How often should Aprons be cleaned?

Every Apron tells a hundred stories. Some need cleaning attention while others can remain in the kitchen. When cleaning aprons, take into consideration how long you have used your apron. Usually, if the apron is used after two or three times then it needs to be cleaned.
