Cleaning guidelines

11 Hope Street Green cottage with plants and bikes in the front of the house

Welcome and thank you,

We take off our shoes at the entrance, to keep the house clean. There will be some slippers available for you.

I will send you a photo where is the key in your WhatsApp.

Feel free to make a tea or coffee.

Wifi password is written on the little red card on the dining table.

Please, do some vacuum cleaning ( floor , carpets, stairs and grey sofa) and wash the floor. Change bedding in the bedroom upstairs, dirty towels and sheets put into the laundry basket upstairs in the bedroom. Clean the kitchen and fridge (if it is dirty , I washed it before I left) and the dining table. Put the general waste into the black bin in the courtyard and put in a new bin bag. Clean bathroom , toilet, feed Suki, clean her toilet , give her food and water the plants. Open windows so air inside is fresh and spray the house with the air freshener. 

Blue: it's for your shower, before shower turn it on after turn it off.

Yellow: it's for hot water in the kitchen and sink, turn it on half an hour before , it needs little time to heat it up and please, don't forget to turn it off after half an hour.

Yellow - vinegar for cleaning and instead of softener ; Blue - eco multipurpose vinegar based detergent

Under the sink is black bin bags and air freshener ( blue bottle spray). There's washing dishes soap bar, instead of liquid detergent.

Please, open the windows downstairs and upstairs for 20 mins. It's an old house and there's also a cat living. Fresh air is good, and release steam from cooking and it's not smelly inside etc... Also as you can see on the second photo, cleaning detergents are in the bathroom on the window. Sponge for cleaning the bathroom  is under the sink .

And please keep opened the little window in the bathroom ( smell from cat't toilet and steam from shower) and the door to the bathroom so Suki can go to the toilet :)

White bin in on the left is general waste, white bin on the right is recycling.

Close the bag with general waste and throw it into the black bin in the courtyard. Close the bin cover. Fresh black bin bag is under the sink. 

Bucket is under the bench in the courtyard. Broom is in the kitchen behind the door.  Vacuum cleaner upstairs in the bedroom and big water bottle for plants under the stairs. Please water plants in front of the house and in the courtyard. 

Bed sheets are in the bed in the drawer, prepared on the top, pillows + duvet sheets + bed sheet + 2 cushions. On the top of the mattress is a duvet, leave the duvet there (makes it more comfortable and protects the mattress) just put on it a new bed sheet. When the bed is changed, please put the purple blanket on top of  the duvet. Dirty bedding put into the laundry basket also  with  the dirty towels in the bathroom. 

Suki is a little lady cat. She needs her personal space, even though she can be also very sweet but on her own terms. When I am around she acts very shy in front of other people, but I heard the opposite is true when I am away... :)

She has her little hidden box, so if you will not see her around, don't panic. She sometimes spends lots of time on her own in her hidden box... She goes sometimes on the roof , but very rarely (if you keep the door open). She always comes back, just make sure she will go back, You can call her name, she understands and slowly comes back.

"Turkish Angoras are playful, intelligent, athletic and involved. They bond with humans, but often select a particular member of a family to be their constant companion, whom they are very protective of."

1. On the kitchen desk by the window is a white cup with her wet food. Please, give her one. If her little plate is dirty, please wash it, she likes her plate clean.

2. She is using reusable pee pads. Please, when there's a poo, throw it in the toilet , on the heater is a little scapula. If the pad is too wet and smelly, please, put it in to the colourful bag on the black bin in the courtyard. There's yellow gloves so you don't have to touch it.

3. Fresh pads are in the white tote bag hanging on the bathroom door.

Thank you a million!
