Maintenance tips for bedding, carpets and curtain
Home textiles such as carpets and curtains do not need to be taken care of every day. However, it is not that easy to clean when you do clean them. Obviously, a proper maintenance routine would make your eventual cleaning more efficient. For your reference: Carpets maintenance Avoid spills and soiled shoes on carpets. Vacuum weekly. Curtain maintenance Dust with a feather duster or vacuum regularly. Thin curtains should be put into a laundry net before machine washed. They should be taken out immediately after the washing cycle ends and hung up for drying. Don’t use chlorine bleach. Always read the label instructions before washing. Bedding cleaning Use a vacuum cleaner that can remove dust mites to clean the mattress regularly. Wash the sheets and pillowcases at 60°C. If the sun is out, dry the pillowcase and sheets under the sun — germ killing and eco-friendly.
2019 lai see packets recycle and reuse programme

Greeners Action calculated that this staggering amount of paper packets would require the cutting down of about 16,300 trees for their making.

There is no reason to believe that this tradition would go away or should change. However, we can all do something to minimise the tradition’s negative impact on the environment. This is our reason for promoting the Lai See Packet Recycle and Reuse Programme. From now to 26th February, if you have surplus empty (used or unused, but not broken) red packets, give them to your tower’s concierge. Greeners Action will..
