Hints and Tips

  • Your GoT Finale Survival Guide!

    It's almost time... Game of Thrones will be coming to a conclusion with its final episode airing in the UK next Monday! Regardless of what you think about this latest season, this is one of those events that is monumental!

    Whether you're watching it as a nice quiet night in or by having a finale party, we have for you the survival guide on what you need to prepare yourself with for this big finish!

     

    1. Tissues (a lot of them)

    The fact the show alone is finishing is enough reason to go through a pack of tissues, not to mention what the various characters will have in store for them.

    So, make sure to stock up on some Kleenex this weekend! You'll probably be needing a lot of them.

     

    2. Snacks & crisps

    A staple for when you're watching any TV show or movie, it's always great to have something tasty like crisps to munch on! Whether you're a fan of Pringles or popcorn, just tip some out into a few bowls and share them around the room!

     

    3. Sweets & chocolate

    Same with the snacks mentioned above, sweet treats are always a fantastic way to enjoy watching TV. Whether you're a chocolate or a sweet fan, we're sure to have everything you could want in our stores.

     

    4. A nice snuggly throw

    Maybe you'll be the type of fan who will wake up in the cold early hours of the morning to watch the finale? If so, be sure to snuggle up in one of our popcorn throws to keep nice and toasty.

    Even if you'll be watching it later in the evening, there's not a whole lot better than being wrapped up in luxurious cosiness.

     

    5. Fizzy drinks

    Coca-Cola, Fanta, 7UP, Monster (if you'll be pulling a late nighter) whatever floats your boat, we have a wide range of drinks to help keep you awake. Just add some ice to it and you have a refreshing drink right there to chill with.

    6. Warm drinks

    It's always lovely to have a hot drink, especially in the middle of the night. No matter how chilling and dark things might look on TV, you can be sure we have hot chocolate, coffee, tea, to help warm you up. Our range is so huge you'll be spoilt for choice!

    Don't forget your marshmallows to create a truly luxurious drink!

     

    7. Candles

    Whilst there are no unicorns in Game of Thrones, you can create a relaxing and magical ambiance with our unicorn sparkle candle. If that's not what you're after, we stock a wide range of other scented and plain candles for you to enjoy!

     

    If you fear it will be a long arduous march to your nearest Poundstretcher, then don't worry! Our amazing Store Finder is just what you need, with map directions, opening hours, contact details and more!

  • 8 Top Tips for a Refreshingly Clean Kitchen!

    It's that time again! We have more fantastic quick cleaning tips for you this week; this time we're focusing on the kitchen, somewhere that ought to be spic and span!

    Whether you use Stardrops, Mr. Muscle, Cif, or just plain ol' vinegar and elbow grease, check out our top tips below and see if they can improve how you think about cleaning your kitchen.

    Or if you have some better solutions, let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!

     

    1. Change Cloths on a Regular Basis

    First things first, the cloths used to wipe your surfaces every night (not to mention the spills you might accidentally make) should be changed at least once or twice a week.

     

    2. Keep Your Microwave Fresh

    You might neglect the inside of your microwave, but it certainly is something that needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. Make sure to give the surfaces (up, down, left, and right) a good scrubbing and use some of our amazing Ozmo Antibacterial Fridge & Microwave Cleaning Spray for only £1.79!

     

    3. Clear Out Your Fridge

    This isn't something you might be doing every day, but it certainly is something that should be kept on top of. Just go through every weekend and make sure you take notice of anything that's nearly out of date, whilst tossing anything out that's no longer any good. (the same can be said of your freezer too).

    After that, take everything out, give the surfaces a good wipe with good old reliable Ozmo, and put everything back in after wiping dry.

     

    4. Mop the Floor

    It's a wet job, and sometimes it can mean your kitchen is off limits for a period of time (unless you want wet feet), but mopping the floor is a job that needs to be done often. Just take a solution of disinfectant in a bucket, get a mop, slap it down on the floor, and get to work!

     

    5. Take Pride in Your Clean Oven

    It's a big job, but Oven Pride is the best product to turn to when you need to get the grime and dirt from your oven when a deep clean is required.

    Just put on the included protective gloves, follow the instructions, and soon you'll have an awe-inspiring oven!

     

    6. Wipe Down the Surfaces

    Your work surfaces need to be done daily (after/before dinner would be a good time). Also, it's worth noting your cabinet doors and interiors should be done every so often too, as grease and dirt can latch onto them without you even knowing.

    Just use some antibacterial kitchen spray for only 90p, spritz it across your surfaces, wipe with a clean damp cloth and presto, the job is done!

     

    7. Descale Your Kettle

    Sometimes limescale wouldn't pose much of an issue, sometimes it will. It all depends on the quality of your water. However, if your kettle (or any products that need a good descaling) is in need of some help, you can be sure that Oust is the best way to go!

     

    8. Sink That Dirt

    Your sink basin has all sorts of food, oil, grime, and bits going through it as you go about washing up and preparing food. It's good to do your sink the same way you clean your surfaces, with a good kitchen spray!

    So, any helpful tips? Maybe you already knew all these or maybe you think you know some better ways to clean the kitchen? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

  • Quick Tips On Cleaning Your Living Room

    You spend such a large amount of time in the living room, so naturally, you'll want to keep it nice and clean! Spring cleaning is coming to an end, though the work needed to put in for a fresh home never stops!

    A quick run-around a day (packing things away, a quick vacuum, and polishing the surfaces) is all it takes to keep on top of things. This way, it means you'll have more time for fun on the weekends!

    This week, we have some fantastic tips and amazing products to share with you all about keeping your living room nice and tidy! Break out the music, start that 20-minute timer, and let's get to work!

     

    1. Declutter On A Daily Basis!

    It's always best to start with clearing things away and putting them where they should go. Whether it's just pairing all the coasters together in a pile on the coffee table, putting books/DVDs in their rightful place on the bookshelf, or tidying away toys in plastic storage boxes.

     

    2. Plump Your Pillows Up!

    Fluff, beat, and straighten up your sofa cushions on a regular basis. This helps keep your sofa lasting longer, straightens it up nicely, and makes it more comfortable in the long run!

     

    3. Clean Up High and Down Low!

    It isn't just everything you can reach with ease that needs cleaning. With a duster, you'll be able to clear the dust from those hard-to-reach places up above (ceiling fans, light fixtures, etc.).

    Just remember to start with that early on; there's no point in dusting and polishing the coffee table, only to have dust from the beaded lamp above wiped off and scatter over it.

     

    4. Dust and Polish!

    This doesn't have to take too long. Just grab a microfibre cloth and wipe off all the dust across your surfaces; follow this up with some Mr Sheen spring fresh polish to keep your furniture healthy and smell utterly fresh.

     

    5. Vacuum Your Curtains!

    Gently clean your curtains using your vacuum to suck up any potential dust. Deep cleaning these will only come around every so often, but it's the quick weekly (or daily!) maintaining that takes no time at all!

     

    6. Disinfect Your Remotes!

    This goes for light switches and everything you touch on a daily basis! You may forget about these, but if you think about how often you touch and use remotes and controllers you'll realise you are just transporting dirt and grime around!

    All it takes is a little cleaning solution in warm diluted disinfectant solution. Make sure it's not dripping wet and just carefully and gently wipe around your light switches/controller buttons.

     

    7. Tackle the Carpet Last!

    The last part of your short burst of daily (or bi-daily) cleaning will be to vacuum your carpet. This way any dust or dirt that's come from your surfaces and have settled onto your carpet can be cleaned up for a nice clean finish!

     

    8. Don't Forget the Windows!

    Whilst not really part of a normal 20-30 minute clean, it's worth mentioning here that your windows are important too! There's nothing worse than streaky and/or dirty windows.

    There are two ways you can go about this: mix hot water and white vinegar together in a bucket or use some specific glass cleaner to speed things up a little.

    Rinse a clean cloth in the solution and wipe down your windows. From there just use newspaper to dry and you're done!

    So there we have it; some of our top tips (alongside the cleaning products found in your local store that make cleaning a breeze) for how to have a pleasantly clean living room. Keeping on top of things is the most important part.

  • Fantastic, Quick Tips For A Sparkling Bathroom

    Spring cleaning is just past the half-way point now, though even-so, work around the house is never done! Each week we will be featuring a different area around the home and the best ways to tackle cleaning them!

    Don't forget all your essentials, such as yellow rubber gloves, cleaning cloths, a bucket, mop, and a timer as you go about giving your room a good 30-minute blitz!

    This week we're talking about the bathroom, an area full of bad bacteria and somewhere that should be kept as clean as possible! Here are a few quick tips on how you can make your bathroom shine.

     

    1. Create Some Room

    Clear out everything. Don't simply go around the toiletries, put them all to the side and out the way, and then you can start wiping down your surfaces with some antibacterial bathroom spray! After all, it isn't just your toilet and shower that can be covered in germs, your window sill and other bathroom surfaces are at risk too!

     

    2. A Ship-shape Sink

    Whether it's limescale or regular grime, you need to make sure your sink is completely clean. After all, think of all the gunk that goes in there on a daily basis? Just take some Stardrops bathroom surface cleaner, a clean cloth, and some can-do attitude and wipe everything clean. Also, be sure to have any mirrors that are around your sink to be rubbed clean with a spritz of glass cleaner.

     

    3. Nothing Like A Sparkling Shower

    Sure the shower floor and walls are important, and these can be cleaned using all kinds of bathroom sprays, such as with Cif Ultrafast or even with the fantastic Cif cream. However, don't forget about the glass itself; with some handy glass cleaner (mentioned above), is all you need. Just need to spray it across, rinse with the shower head, and for that perfect finish, use a squeegee.

    Now, as for limescale, you may be getting quite a build-up of it in the nooks and crannies (the shower head, behind/around the tap, etc.). Limelite is just one of the ways to banish it and leave everything sparkly clean.

     

    4.  Make That Toilet Sparkle

    Whilst it's important to bleach the interior of your toilet on a regular basis (using Harpic or Duck), you need to make sure all the exterior surfaces are done too.

    The seat, the rim of the bowl, all the hidden parts behind, everything! They all need a quick spritz with an antibacterial spray, leave for around 10 minutes, and wipe with a clean cloth. Also, don't forget the toilet flusher too!

     

    5. Clear Your Pipes

    Dirt, and especially hair, can easily and quickly clog up your shower or toilet pipes. It also doesn't take long to clear all that away! Just take a bottle of Mr. Muscle drain unclogger, pour half (or the entire bottle if it's REALLY clogged) and allow to work for 15 minutes (30 if a full-on clog), or overnight if need be. Take a kettle of boiling water, pour/flush it down, and repeat if necessary.

    And there you have it; some of our little cleaning tips that can become part of your bathroom routine (whether that's your 30-minute blitz or a full-on clean).

    Also, there's nothing wrong with having a bit of a change-over when it comes to bathroom rugs, mats, and furnishing. We have a whole range of bathroom goodies for you, so why not check them out? How? Using our handy Store Finder of course!

  • Get Set For Spring Cleaning With Our 6 Easy Tips

     

    Where has the time gone? It's almost March and that means spring is getting closer to being in full bloom (could have sworn I saw a bumblebee the other day)! With Easter and Mother's Day on the horizon, 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 #1: 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 afterward too) or wash it with warm, soapy water. Also, make sure you give your sponges a good soak too.

     

    Tip #2: 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 Dettol Anti-bacterial surface 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 #3: 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 #4: 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 #5: 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 #6: 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.

  • All The Moving Day Necessities You Need

    They say that moving home can be one of the most stressful things a person can do. And that’s a pretty well-founded theory, as anyone who’s carried out a serious house move will well know.

    With so much to shift from your old home to your new abode, it can be an overwhelming thought. But by being structured and organised, it is possible to make a house move a relatively stress-free process.

    One way to help make sure this is the case is by stocking up on excellent moving items that can be used to not only haul your belongings to their new location but also store things once you’re nicely settled into your new home.

    Plastic Storage Options

    Plastic storage boxes are perfect for any big move. They provide ample space to fill with all your precious items and protect them during transit.

    They are also a very flexible option and are perfect for everything from kitchenware and household items to clothes, shoes and even food and drink.

    And once everything is safely moved in, these boxes are great for storing a wide variety of household items. They can be stored under beds, in closets or wardrobes with ease, and are a great way of helping to ensure your home looks spotless.

    Baskets and Boxes

    If you’re looking for more visually-striking storage options for your new home that can double up as extra moving equipment, we have a great selection of basket and boxes.

    These are ideal for families with young children and can house all those toys and items that can get misplaced during a big move, helping parents to avoid tantrums and tears. Plus you can use them to tidy toys away once you’re happily settled in your new home.

    Cleaning Everything Up

    One of the often forgotten elements of moving is cleaning up the mess you leave behind. Nobody wants to leave a house or flat in a poor state when moving out, but it’s always amazing how much unseen dirt can accumulate over time without you even realising.

    So when the big moving day comes, having a great selection of basic cleaning supplies at your disposal can help get things neat and tidy in no time.

    At Poundstretcher, we have a massive range of cleaning products that can help you leave the home you’re vacating looking fresh for the next occupants. We offer a fine range of kitchen cleaners and bathroom cleaners that can get things looking shipshape quickly. This means that if you’re renting, for example, you can give yourself a better chance of getting that all important deposit back.

  • Poundstretcher's Winter Guide to Skin Care

    With more of the cold winter months still to come, you need to take extra good care of your skin now more than ever! However, we know great skincare is no trifling matter; we all want our skin to look its best. There's rain and cold winds on the cards (maybe even some snow, you never know?), 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 stay healthy and clear during these remaining winter months.

     

    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, of course! Just layer up as much as possible, regardless if it's just a really bleak day or if the skies have opened up.

     

    Wash With Warm Water Beforehand

    Just before you start to apply moisturising products to your skin, it'd be best to wash in lukewarm water before drying and applying any creams. This helps to stop stripping your face of essential oils.

     

    Nourish and Help Your Skin

    That's right, make sure you moisturise and cleanse your skin to make it as smooth as possible to 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, such as coffee and tea, 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. If you still want a bit of snuggly warmth in a cup, why not have some warm water with a bit of lemon or peppermint? It 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 are building up? Your skin cannot benefit from the moisture if it cannot get inside. That is where exfoliation comes in!

    And there we have it, a few quick and simple tips for keeping your skin nice and healthy throughout winter.

    To find your nearest store, where you can find all the great products listed above and more, go to our Find-a-Store and see where your nearest Poundstretcher is!
