We recently came across a classic problem of the seal between a bath and the wall-tiles leaking water behind the bath, and not only creating nasty-looking black seal along the bath edge, but in this case water then leaking into the living room directly below.... Continue reading
We would like to officially declare Birmingham as the cleanest place in the UK.
This is based upon a survey carried out by retailer House of Bath, and their resultant Cleaning Map of Great Britain. Over 2000 household customers were analysed over the last 6 months to suss out exactly what cleaning products have been sold to detect what’s happening in the dirt-killing world of household cleaning.
With the new year now upon us have you been thinking of getting your home cleaning under control for a more organised household?
You’re not the only one. In fact it is a long-held Chinese tradition to clean the entire house from top to bottom a few days before their new year. Not only do they clean the house but they also clean the house wares. All this is to welcome in the new year and give the occasion added significance.
We came across an iPhone dilemma recently which could have resulted in a large replacement cost! Slightly different type of cleaning advice, but helped retrieve the phone OK.
The incident happened whilst driving and a cup of coffee being split in a cup-holder next to the driver’s seat. Unfortunately this is where they normally place their iPhone whilst driving, and therefore when they automatically did so without rembering that it was full of coffee resulted in coffee seeping into the bottom of the phone - not good.
Later on it started to ‘play up’ and not respond, unusual for Apple products. Then a stain started to emerge actually on the screen, well infact technically behind the screen after the coffee had been drawn into the phone from the power-socket at the bottom. To top things off, there were then problems with charging the battery, as the power point goes in this socket, which would have been a problem if the battery went flat and the phone could not even be kept on to try and function and repair.
Anyway, here’s 3 simple tricks that helped resolve. Fortunately these helped remedy the problem, although of course this might not always be the case and proper mobile-phone repair being needed:
1. It was left to dry out. A simple principle we see in cleaning time and time again, if something is wet then just give it time to dry out. Preferably on its own without additional heat when it comes to technology, and sooner the better really.
