Spring is not just about longer and warmer days, but also about giving your home a well-deserved deep clean after you have ignored quite a few places during the winter months. While there are lots of tasks that make their way onto your spring-cleaning list, some of them are essential, so try to focus on furnishings, carpeting, appliances, and your bathroom to give your home a top-to-bottom polishing in no time.
The house has been dusted, the tree has almost been put up, and the Christmas wreaths have been placed. It’s about that season and the house is shaping up nicely. During the holidays, we tend to focus on areas of the house that will see the most activity. The living room and kitchen tend to receive the most attention while the bathroom tends to be neglected. This time around, make sure that your bathroom is just as festive and prepared for its duty as the rest of the house.
Among the numerous ideas and options on that lengthy wedding gift registry, you’ll be sure to find many, if not all, of the old favourites: crockery, cutlery, bedroom linens, wine glasses, picnic baskets…. of all these potential gifts, we like to think that a set of gorgeously soft luxury towels are the best for a number of excellent reasons.
Put some beautiful hand towels in the kitchen and you know they’re going to meet with all sorts of disaster. It’s the kitchen, after all. If you’re intent on keeping those towels pristine, though, you’ll need a few things always at hand for stain emergencies: baking soda, cornstarch, liquid dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, and Shout.
If you are into hitchhiking through the galaxy, there is one item you always need to have close to hand: your towel. But why not hitch through the galaxy in style? And have your own personalised towel? Never confuse your precious towel with that of an Altairian strag (non-hitchhiker); by getting a luxury towel you can always be sure to get that smooth feeling when you need it. It may set you back for your daily allotted 30 Altarian dollars, but it’s a very wise investment.
Stealing towels from the American motel chain Holiday Inn was a well-loved pastime for decades, starting in the 1960s. The distinctive grass-green script lettering was just too tempting for US travellers, and having one or more of these personalised towels at home told guests that they were were fun-loving. The towels are no longer in use at the hotels, but they remain a collector’s item, and in fact – as you know if you work in the hospitality industry today – stealing hotel towels remains a popular pastime for British travellers too, as shown in a recent survey.
In our last blog on towels for businesses, we mentioned the importance of having the right finishing touches for your brand, and how it is often the little details that make a customer’s experience of your business memorable – whether that’s for better or for worse. Depending on the industry, there are certain things that customers have come to expect as the norm; for example robes and toiletries in a hotel room, and towels when visiting the spa. Because this level of service is so widely expected, not only will customers be disappointed if you don’t provide them, but they will not be impressed simply because you did. It is now vital that your complimentary extras are of a higher quality than both your competitor’s products and your customer’s expectations.
