  • Get Set for Spring Cleaning with Our 5 Easy Tips

    Where has the time gone? It's April already and spring is very much in full bloom! With Easter now behind us, it's time to think about (if you haven't already) cracking on with some spring cleaning before it slips away from you!

    With our wide range of products here at Poundstretcher, you'll have everything you need to tackle this task before you. Here are a few quick tips to help make everything easier and our top choice of cleaning products to use.

     

    Tip #0: Before You Begin - Clean Your Utensils

    The last thing you want is to track more dirt and pesky dust bunnies around your home, right? Well, then one of the first things you should consider before sweeping your brooms left, right, and centre is to give the bristles a good cleaning. This goes for any cloths you wish to use too.

    Just simply give them a quick once-over with your vacuum (making sure to give the nozzle a clean afterwards too) or wash it with warm, soapy water. Also make sure you give your sponges a good soak too.

     

    Tip #1: Clean Your Light Fixtures

    You'll be amazed at how dusty your light fixtures can get, and also at how much it can slightly alter the lighting in your home. All it takes is a quick climb up a stepladder, a sponge, and some handy Flash all-purpose cleaner to get the job done.

    Regular up-keep also prevents the build-up in these tough to reach places, meaning you'll have a cleaner home. It's especially useful to bear in mind if someone in the house has dust allergies and/or breathing difficulties.

     

    Tip #2: Wipe Every Surface, Even Vertical Ones

    It isn't just the kitchen counters and other horizontal surfaces you should clean on a regular basis. Build-up can occur on your cupboard doors and drawers too, almost seeming invisible. It's a good idea to give everything a good wipe with some antibacterial surface cleaner to get rid of the germs for good.

     

    Tip #3: Deep Clean Your Fridge

    Same as the windows, make sure you clean the inside and outside of your fridge; you'd be surprised how much grime can gather on your fridge door! Gather up all your refrigerated supplies and give the entire inside a good clean. Pull out all the interior shelves and wash them in warm soapy water, followed by wiping down everything else that cannot be removed (this includes the sides, bottom, and fridge 'ceiling'.).

     

    Tip #4: Clean the Windows Inside & Out

    First off, did you know it's a better idea to clean your windows on a cloudy day? That way you can ensure the water and Mr Muscle window spray will not dry and create a load of speckles before you're done.

    It can be difficult to clean the outside of your windows if they're not reachable at ground level. However, it's worth making sure they're just as clean as the inside. What's the point of cleaning the windows on the inside, if there are smudges and dirt on the outside? One product that can help you is our Window Cleaning Kit, containing a rubber squeegee, microfibre mop, a replacement window mop pad, ergonomic hand grip, and telescopic pole (that extends to 1.05cm approx.)!

     

    Tip #5: Declutter All The Clutter

    Finally, tackle the biggest part of spring cleaning (getting rid of and/or organising all your clutter) with our range of storage options! This doesn't mean cramming things anywhere, stuffing them into a box, and leaving them under the bed. No, you might as well do a complete clear out of all your unwanted books, movies, and knick-knacks (either selling them on eBay or giving them to a charity shop). The rest of them can then be organised by size/subject/genre and then neatly aligned.

    For your clothes, some over-door hooks can work wonders in freeing up some space, as would placing your random bits and pieces in any of our plastic storage containers. Also, similar to organising your books and movies, it would be worth doing the same for clothes. Having a designated space for each type of clothing (and also arranging them by occasion) would make your daily routine much smoother.

  • Top 7 Winter Skin Care Tips

    It's cold outside and the weather is as unpredictable as ever. With rain, cold winds, and snow on the cards, you need to make sure you are practising good skin care.

    This time of year can be brutal, so here are a few tips on how to help your skin in the last month and a half of winter.

     

    Keep Warm and Bundled Up

    To start with, before you start thinking about applying creams or moisturisers, it's best to remember to stay warm and shield yourself from the harsh cold winds. The ideal way to do that? Hats and scarfs and just layer up as much as possible, regardless if it's raining, snowing, or it's just a really bleak day.

     

    Wash With Warm Water Beforehand

    Just before you start to apply moisturising products to your skin, it'd be best to wash in warm water. When you're washing your hands and face for cleansing purposes, it's always best to go for a lukewarm temperature before drying and applying any creams.

     

    Nourish and Help Your Skin

    That's right, make sure you moisturise and nourish your skin to make it as smooth as possible.  With products like Dove's Intensive Nourishing Cream or the Kamil Sensitive Hand and Nail Cream you can help heal your hands and ward off dryness.

     

    Don't Forget Your Lips

    Your lips are as important as keeping your hands and face moisturised. To avoid cold sores and dry lips, it's always best to keep some of the wonder jelly that is Vaseline onhand just in case. From protecting minor wounds to healing dry skin, Vaseline aloe vera lip therapy (and it's original variant)  is the way to go!

     

    Drink Lots of Water

    Hot drinks are always a comforting and soothing way to handle the cold weather. However, you need to remember your skin, not to mention your body as a whole, still needs hydration. Warm water with a bit of lemon or peppermint can go a long way in helping to keep you warm, and it's refreshingly hydrating.

     

    Exfoliate!

    Moisturising and cleansing are all well and good. But what about all those dead skin cells that're building up? Your skin cannot benefit from the moisture if it cannot get inside. That is where exfoliation comes in!

    Grab yourself some 7th Heaven peel-off masks! They're great for helping cleanse your skin for radiant results and come in a wide range featuring the humble cucumber, a dead sea mud pac, and a d-stressful tea tree peel-off.

    And there we have it, a few tips for keeping your skin nice and healthy throughout the remainder of winter.
