TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR CLEAN CURTAINS

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Wellington

Before re-hanging your clean curtains, we recommend you thoroughly wash the inside of your windows and frames with warm soapy water with a small amount of bleach in to get rid of any mould spores that are present, taking care not to splash on your carpet or other soft furnishings.

Before re-hanging your clean curtains, we recommend you thoroughly wash the inside of your windows and frames with warm soapy water with a small amount of bleach in to get rid of any mould spores that are present, taking care not to splash on your carpet or other soft furnishings.


Mould grows as a result of sun, moisture and dust or dirt so any attempts to minimize these environmental conditions will help.


- Removing the moisture from your windows each morning.
- Curtains can be vacuumed using the round brush attachment to remove dust
- Ensuites can be a major source of moisture in a bedroom, ensure these are well ventilated
- Avoid drying washing inside
- Opening windows for a small amount of time each day to let the moisture out of your home
- Curtains can be spot cleaned using a solution of washing powder and warm water – this will often leave a watermark so spots should be patted dry with a towel, then dried with a hair dryer.

- Please note: “Exit-Mould” & citrus cleaners will most often strip the colour out of your curtain and leave chemicals in the fabric that will cause it to rot

Call us today on 0800 579 0501 to book in for a clean!

There are a lot of reasons to dig up a road, unfortunately! Here’s one of the less common belowground infrastructure renewals we do.

Digger Operator Layton is removing an old air valve block on the bulk water main running from Naenae Reservoir. The team put in a new, bigger air valve (replacing the one just visible in the wooden chamber) then constructed a new concrete chamber and manhole cover for better service and maintenance access.

Eggs any way, anytime

Emma Reporter from Stuff Cooks

During lockdown, there was no leftover my family wouldn’t crack an egg onto and eat for breakfast: leftover mash, leftover chicken pot pie, the last dribbles of a batch of ham hock soup and once, a lamb chop.

Eventually “Eggs & Anything” infiltrated dinner and our standards dropped even lower: the skillet was dumped on the table along with a pile of forks, a few side plates - maybe, a tea towel as a napkin for the 8-year-old with the large lockdown appetite and away we went.

Lazy egg suppers have hung around in Alert Level 2 - minus the dinner dregs and skillet table service, and with the addition of an actual recipe: Turkish eggs, spicy red shakshuka and spiced bread egg in a hole.

Eggs, dukkah and garlic fried spinach is another favourite combo in our house. What's your favourite?

Hi neighbours,
My name is Caitlin and I am available for animal care/housesitting/evening dog walking in Wadestown and surrounding suburbs starting immediately. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and have recently come back to New Zealand after time working in the United States that was cut short due to the pandemic situation. I am currently working a roughly 9-5 job Monday to Friday and I enjoy housesitting experiences with animals especially dogs as I have never had one of my own but I like them a lot.

I find housesitting with animals greatly enjoyable since I no longer have my own pets although I have experience caring for cats, dogs, fish, rabbits and even chickens and horses (I was a horse owner for 7 years).

Reasonable rates for all services, can be flexible and discussed based on individual needs (generally starting from $10/day for animal care and housesitting for one animal). I have a comprehensive first aid certificate as well as my full driver's licence and my own car.

References also available.

Feel free to message me here or give me a txt on 0278213969 to start discussions.

Cheers!
Caitlin
