How often should you change your Airbnb bed linen?

As an Airbnb host, your main priority is to ensure comfort and cleanliness for your guests. Attention to detail goes a long in keeping your Airbnb well-managed because if you spot something that doesn’t look right, it’s best you act. But just how often should you change your Airbnb bed linen? Our blog will give you the answers.

Bed Linen

Your bed linen is a fundamental part of your Airbnb. Guests want a place where they can get a cosy good night’s sleep so it’s crucial you provide them with quality bed linen.

There will be periods in the year when your Airbnb will get a lot of bookings and during this period, your bed linen will need to be frequently washed after every use but even then, this may not be enough. The more they get used, the more worn they will get over time.

Guests value appearance but if the appearance and comfort level isn’t there, it’s a recipe for a bad review so it’s important you change your Airbnb bed linen.

Ideally, you should aim to change bed linen every six months. If the bookings aren’t busy, you can change them once a year (provided they are washed properly).

Laundryheap Linen‘s bed linen is the pinnacle of softness and cosiness so if your Airbnb needs new bed linen, just place an order!

Other Items – Pillows and Pillowcases

Bed linen isn’t the only item that keeps your guests sleeping well in your Airbnb. Comfortable, cosy and quality pillows are also the key to impressing your guests and boosting reviews.

Due to the dirty skin cells and germs left on pillows, it’s best to change them every 5-6 months. Even with a washing machine, the dead skin cells won’t go away.

When you notice your pillows getting a little flat, perhaps this is also a sign that they need changing. When you notice this, immediately find a replacement.

Pillowcases can be replaced 1-2 years but ensure they are properly washed.

We also offer pillowcases to your Airbnb! If you order a single set, you can get 2 pillowcases but if you order a double & king set, you will get 4 pillowcases! Click here to make an order!

Keeping your guests happy is always the objective for Airbnb hosts. The easiest way to do this is by offering them high-quality bed linen.  

We hope this blog has given you an idea on how often you should change your bed linen.

Happy hosting!

4 Must-Know Trends in The Restaurant Industry In 2023

Restaurants have faced a plethora of challenges since the pandemic started. Within the challenges, came opportunities to adapt. Just like any other year, trends are changing the way restaurants manage. From sustainability to laundry services, here are 4 must-know trends in the restaurant industry in 2023!

1. The Rise in Sustainability

More and more businesses are seeking ways to become more sustainable. The restaurant industry is no different. With coffee shops already changing their straws to paper and using eco-friendly disposable packaging, it’s safe to say being sustainable is going to be an even bigger trend in 2023 than it has been before.

2. Vegan Food Trends

Following on from sustainability, vegan food is a trend that gets bigger each passing year. Many fast-food restaurants are adding alternatives that cater more to vegans. Global chains have started to add plant-based that closely resembles the taste of chicken and meat. This is a trend your restaurant should keep its eye on in 2023!

3. Use of Technology

The use of technology is the third must-know trend in the restaurant industry in 2023. Technology has long stamped its mark on businesses but ever since the pandemic, it’s become trendier to rely on technology. Some restaurants have started to launch their own apps to give their customers the option to have their food delivered to them.

While others have changed the way customers place their orders when inside the restaurant because now, all customers need to do is scan a QR code to see the menu from their phones. In other restaurants, self-serving kiosks have been used.

To say technology isn’t a big trend is an understatement!

4. Laundry Services

Hygiene and a clean environment are everything in today’s day and age. If your restaurant is not clean, expect bad hygiene ratings and angry customers. Bad hygiene does stem from unwashed uniforms, towels or linen.

Finding the time to wash your uniforms can be tricky but the good news is, laundry services are becoming a big part of the restaurant industry.

By partnering up with a laundry service like Laundryheap, you don’t have to worry about laundry again because we will take care of it. When it comes to laundry, we bring a lot to the table!

How it works is simple; schedule a collection, we’ll come in the same day and collect your staff’s uniform and deliver it back within 24 hours – all clean and in tip-top condition!

Laundry services are a massive trend in 2023 so be sure to partner with one to save you a lot of time!

Knowing these 4-must-know trends in the restaurant industry in 2023 will help you manage your business and cater to your customers better.

As always with trends, things change fast but restaurants are in a better place today to adapt to situations thanks to the use of technology.

Have a great 2023 and good luck!

3 Things Guests Expect From Your Hotel

A lot of your hotel’s success comes from guests; their opinions and reviews matter. If you aren’t meeting their expectations, it could lead to a bad experience and perhaps worse, bad word of mouth. It’s important guest expectations are met. To help you, we will list 3 things guests expect from your hotel.

1. Cleanliness

The last few years have been dominated by the pandemic and at the height of it, maintaining hygiene has been key to reducing the spread of viruses, germs, and bacteria.

Cleanliness is the minimum guests expect from your hotel. The minute they walk into the lobby, the floors should be clean and no litter should be around. Air fresheners in the lobby and corridors are also a great way to impress your guests.

Not just that but keeping a strict cleaning schedule is massive to keeping guests satisfied. Be sure your staff are on top of the cleaning duties when it comes to the hotel rooms and bathrooms.

You don’t want to be reading a review from a guest complaining about dirty hotel rooms!

2. Convenience

Guests come to your hotel for convenience and comfort and expect things to be easy for them. Consider guests who may be staying at your hotel to do work; they’ll need a stable WI-FI connection. Even if you’re not confident in your WiFi connection, invest in boosters to put in rooms.

In addition, some guests may be staying for a week or two. For these guests, they’ll likely want their laundry done. Taking the time to google a local launderette and carrying a big load of laundry bags with them is a hassle.

What you can do to make things more convenient for your guests is partner up with Laundryheap.

We help simplify the life of your guests by offering them a fast and reliable laundry service. The process is as easy as 123; once your guests book a collection date, we’ll come in the same day and return their clothes within 24 hours – all clean and fresh!

3. Comfort

Thirdly, comfort is what guests expect from your hotel. No matter who your guests are, every one of them has one expectation; a room that offers comfort and relaxation.

To meet this big expectation, make sure you are investing in bed linens and high-quality towels to make your rooms feel like paradise. A good night’s sleep in a hotel is one thing that pleases guests and makes them want to come back for more stays.

The Dos and Don’ts of Caring For Your Suit

Suits mean style, elegance, and professionalism and when washed properly, can result in compliments coming your way in the office. However, washing a suit isn’t as straightforward as it sounds and if you’re not cautious, you could end up ruining your suit. Let’s be honest, nobody wants to turn up in a meeting with a messy suit! To save you from having a bad day at the office, we’ve come up with a guide on dos and don’t of caring for your suit.

dos and don'ts of caring for your suit

Do: Check The Label

The first dos and don’ts of caring for your suit is the golden rule of laundry; always check the label. Suits are expensive outfits to get so it would be a big mistake to ignore the care labels.

For most suits, they have a label that says ‘dry clean only’. If you see this, follow the instructions and take it to a dry-cleaner to dry-clean it for you. You can also book a service with Laundryheap and our team will dry-clean it to perfection for you!

Don’t Use The Washing Machine

Unless your suit is casual, putting it in the washing machine is detrimental because it will cause your suit to shrink. The huge amount of water in the washing machine would overwhelm your suit so because of the consequences, don’t use the washing machine to wash your suit.

Do: Use a Suit Hanger

The key to caring for your suit is getting suit hangers. Never underestimate the value of suit hangers as they protect your suits against any creases or wrinkles and give them longevity. Suit hangers also keep you well-organised when it comes to storage.

Don’t: Dry Clean Regularly

Dry cleaning may not include water or detergents, but it includes the use of solvents. While these solvents do a brilliant job of cleaning your suits, dry-cleaning your suits regularly (i.e. weekly and monthly) will result in wear and tear as the chemicals are quite harsh. Only dry-clean when the suit is dirty or doesn’t smell good.

If you do notice any stains, make sure you clean them immediately with a damp stain to avoid the need for dry cleaning.

Do: Get In Touch With a Professional to Dry-Clean

Linked to our previous dos and don’ts of caring for your suit, you should get in touch with a professional to do the dry-cleaning for you. Luckily for you, our dry-cleaning services are convenient, affordable and fast. The starting price is only £2 and the best part? We come to you which saves you time from going to your dry cleaners!

If you happen to manage an office, we do offer commercial services to help you out! We will make life easier for your employees by dry-cleaning their suits for them – keeping them professional and office-ready for those crucial Monday meetings!

Don’t: Cram Your Suit Together With Other Clothes

Your suit is a special piece of outfit that does need special care. Even before you hang it in the closet, make sure it gets exposed to the air for a day or two so that the moisture gets evaporated.

In addition, you should also check that you’re not cramming all your clothes together because this will increase the chances of wrinkles, mildew and dust building up. It’s always recommended you choose a cool, dry and dark place to store your suit otherwise sunlight will fade your suit.  

Suits are important in the professional world. They show you mean business and are ready to take on those office tasks!

We hope our guide of dos and don’ts of caring for your suit has given you more information on how to keep your suits in the best condition.

Suit up and check out our commercial services if you are interested in partnering up with us!
