4 Ways To Prepare Your Hotel For Winter

Nothing says the winter season is here like the days getting shorter and colder. For hotels, winter is a period where you will get an influx of tourists booking to stay. For this reason alone, it’s important to start preparing how to cater to guests in this season. To help you do just that, we’ve compiled 4 ways to prepare your hotel for winter!

ways to prepare for your hotel for winter

1. Maintain a Strict Cleaning Schedule

Hygiene is important all year and all seasons. Whether it’s Spring, Summer or Autumn, you’ll want to maintain cleaning standards. However, there are higher chances of people getting cold and the flu during the winter so be sure to go boost your hygiene practices. Follow deep cleaning procedures after a guest has checked out.

Hoovering rooms, putting hand sanitisers in the reception and cleaning bed linens and towels all go a long way in stamping out any germs and bacteria.

2. Inspect Hotel Boiler

Picture this – your guests book a room at your hotel – expecting a warm and cosy stay. Then they discover the room feels a little cold and there is no hot water.

It’s a recipe for a bad review – especially in winter when everyone wants to be inside. To avoid a situation like this, inspect your hotel’s boiler and make it a top priority. January and February are very cold months so make sure to get your hotel’s boiler checked as soon as possible to prepare your hotel for winter!

3. Make Rooms More Comfortable

When it comes to winter, every detail of your hotel room must be of high standards. We’re not just talking about just the beds, pillows and towels but also about the room temperature and room amenities. After all, nothing beats the feeling of drinking a hot drink in a warm room.

To do our part in keeping your rooms up to standards, we do offer linen hire services! Our bed linen is fresh, smooth and of high quality! Not only will investing in our bed linens guarantee comfort and quality sleep for your guests but it will also maintain overall cleanliness!

4. Provide Bathroom Essentials

A relaxing and warm shower in the winter is a heavenly feeling for guests. Be sure to provide the essential toiletries that your guests need such as body lotion, conditioner, shampoo, and shower gel.

Don’t forget the towels too! With Laundryheap Linen, you can order some durable, fluffy and warm towels to provide your guests with.

Managing a hotel is not easy no matter what season it is but preparation always makes things easier!

How To Remove Whipped Cream Stains

Whipped cream instantly makes dessert or coffee sweeter! However, sometimes it does spill on our clothes but we don’t blame you! It’s not easy to have self-control when dealing with a topping as delicious as whipped cream. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a guide to help you remove whipped cream stains!

remove whipped cream stains

Step 1: Rinse The Garment

To remove whipped cream stains, you first need to put the garment in a sink of water. Preferably, it’s better to have the garment inside out to get better cleaning results.

Because whipped cream has dairy in it, we highly advise against using hot water because you will risk the cream melting further into your garment.  

Step 2: Pretreat The Stained Area

Secondly, get a liquid detergent, pour it into the stained area, and let it sit for 30 minutes in cold water. Once the time has passed, gently rub the stained area to see how much of it is remaining.

It’s important to be patient throughout the process because the stain does take time to dry.

Step 3: Launder The Garment

Afterwards, proceed to launder your garment as normal. When the washing cycle finishes, check on your garment to see if the stain is removed before air-drying it.

Alternatively, you can also use your tumble dryer to dry your garment but it’s important you ensure the stain isn’t there otherwise the high heat will make it difficult for the whipped cream stain to come off.

We hope this guide has helped you to be better equipped to remove whipped cream stains!

If you still need help, get in touch with Laundryheap and we’ll remove the stains for you!

How To Remove Gravy Stains

There is no denying that a Sunday roast would be incomplete without gravy. It’s delicious and adds flavour to the beef and potatoes! However, sometimes gravy ends up on your clothes accidentally as you are eating your tasty dinner. Due to its oily base, it can be a tricky stain to remove but don’t worry – in this blog, we’ll guide you on how to remove gravy stains!

Step 1 – Act Fast

The trick to removing gravy stains is to act fast. Gravy is composed of a mixture of grease and protein so if you don’t treat the stain immediately, it will stick to your clothes and be even harder to remove. And let’s face it, gravy looks way better on the plate than it does on clothes!

Step 2 – Scrape Away The Gravy

Once you’ve seen the gravy stains on your clothes, get a butter knife and try to scrape off the excess gravy from the fabric.

Step 3 – Apply a Stain Remover or Laundry Detergent

Then, get either a stain remover or laundry detergent and apply it to the stained area to remove gravy stains. Try not to pour too much otherwise it may ruin the fabric of your garment. When you’ve poured the stain remover or laundry detergent, wait 15 minutes before moving on to step number 4.

Step 4 – Wash In Hot Water

Put your garment in the washing machine and wash it in hot water (that is suited for the fabric) using laundry detergent and colour-safe bleach.

It’s essential you thoroughly check your garment after the wash cycle has finished to see if the gravy stains are still there. If they are there, we strongly advise AGAINST putting your garment in the tumble dryer because the high heat will make the stain nearly impossible to remove.

If you are happy with the results, either air-dry the garment or put it in the tumble dryer.

The proof is in the pudding – follow these steps to remove gravy stains and you’ll start 2023 with no stains on your favourite clothes!

A friendly reminder that Laundryheap is available to help you should you come across any stubborn stains!
