Hotel Bed Presentations – Advice on How to Achieve the Best

One of the wonderful things about staying in a nice hotel room is the quality of the linen and the bed making. Hotel visitors simply don’t apply the finer points of bed making at home, and so appreciate the skill of the professional that creates a cosy feel that shouts comfort.

Bed presentation is like any sort of presentation, as much as it’s about the practical considerations, the way the bed looks also has a significant part to play and can really add to the allure and comfort of a freshly turned hotel room.

Five Star Hotel:

There are a number of elements required when creating the professional feel of great five star hotel beds and cleanliness is always the first one. Clean laundered sheets are pivotal in the making of such a top quality bed.

The bottom sheet needs to be placed on the bed and pulled tight to the corners of the bed. This creates the base of the perfect bed and should be followed up with the top sheet. This can be added from the footboard and made to billow evenly over the bed edges. At the head of the bed lift the end of the sheet placing the hem along the headboard. Then pull the sheet at the bottom of the bed until it is flat and even on the bed.

This can then be done with the blanket, though in this case leave the blanket about two hands away from the headboard and fold the top sheet over it. This has the dual benefit of protecting the sleepers face and also preventing body oils getting on the blanket.

Hospital Corners:

These give the bed that professional look and are easier to achieve than you might think. To create hospital corners place the sheet and blanket underneath the foot of the mattress. When this is finished you will see that the left over fabric at the sides has made a U-turn back along the length of the bed. Place this between your fingers and pull it towards the headboard and then place the hanging corners of the sheet and blanket under the mattress. This should mean the left over fabric will fall over the tucked area.

Finishing touches:

Nobody wants oils on their pillows and this can be avoided through placing the pillows on the bed and rocking the case on with both hands. Vertically shake them until they are covered by the case and then fold the excess fabric inside to create a smooth pocket. This ensures the pillow looks tidy.

The bedspread is also very important and you must keep the sides of it even. You will also find that you have surplus at the headboard – this should be folded back and left a little short of the top sheet. Place the pillows on the fold of the sheets and place the rest of the bedspread over the tops of them. This will limit the amount of dust on the pillows.

Finally, add some towels, cushions and mints to create the authentic hotel feel.

Living Through the Timeshare Presentation

If you go on a vacation to someplace exotic there is a good possibility that you will be lured into a timeshare presentation. They will give you a lot of good reasons to sit through their speech and often they will offer you something that sounds good enough for you to bite. I know that for my wife and I we have sat through our fair share of timeshare presentations and we have even ended up buying a few, but what can you do to make sure that you don’t buy, especially if you aren’t in a position to buy?

Sometimes when we go on vacation we are able to get a great rate on our room or vacation package because we are willing to sit through the timeshare presentation. This is completely understandable. They are in a position to make a lot of money with your timeshare purchase and you are able to save a lot of money on your vacation by being willing to sit through the presentation. The danger comes in because they are in a position to win the struggle of averages. A considerable number of people that are willing to sit through the presentation and do not want to buy will end up buying because they are very good at presenting their side of the argument. That is how they make their money, so you need to be prepared not to purchase from the start. Make sure that you even tell them (although they have heard it before) that you are just there to get the discount, and when they get to the sales part you will be ready to tell them no right away.

Of course once you get beyond that hurdle you are not really done. Another sales person, usually in a higher position will come out to give you an offer that you can’t refuse. This is a dangerous place for you to be in because they will give you a good offer and you will recognize it. But add it up in your head and realize that you will be making those monthly payments for years, perhaps even after your circumstances change and you aren’t able to take advantage of the timeshare vacation.

So before you take them up on the vacation discount make sure you have resolved in your mind exactly what the outcome will be and stick to it. Even if the pressure gets heavy you need to stick to your word and let it be no. If, of course, you find that it is something that you really want then you should go for it, but make sure to think about it first.

Inorganic Industrial Degreasing Solvents Present Safety Issues

Industrial degreasing solvents are used as a cleaning agent in professional parts washing and machinery washing. These chemicals might be sprayed, brushed, or wiped directly onto the surface of the contaminated part to remove grease, dirt, or dust. While these degreasers effectively remove contaminants from machinery and extend the useful life of these parts, some of these liquids contain unsafe compounds. When businesses do not properly research the chemicals that they utilize, they run the risk of harming employees and the environment by exposing them to toxic chemicals. This article will take a look at some of the most dangerous substances contained in the industrial degreasing solvents. Business owners should familiarize themselves with the compounds in this article so that they will be able to identify unsafe chemicals and keep them from harming employees and the surrounding environment.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have made a point to focus on the presence of VOCs in cleaning products. In reality, VOCs are safe when consumed in small doses but when individuals are exposed to a high level of VOCs they could experience health issues. Symptoms of high VOC exposure include nausea, headaches, kidney damage, liver damage, and a shutdown of the central nervous system. It is important for companies to evaluate the VOC levels in industrial degreasing solvents before making a purchase.

Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs)

Degreasers that contain HAPs are problematic because when these substances are used, they emit harmful pollutants into the atmosphere. Individuals who work in environments where HAPs are present could inhale these pollutants and become sick. Depending on how long an individual is exposed to HAPs, he or she can develop dizziness, upset stomach, breathing issues, infertility, or nerve damage. Luckily companies can prevent the introduction of HAPs into the workspace by obtaining a list of HAPs from the EPA and using this list when evaluating the degreasers that are available on the market. Being thorough during a search will allow the company to save money by avoiding costly lawsuits and insurance price hikes.

Isopropyl Alcohol

Found in some degreasers, isopropyl alcohol is another toxin that can harm humans. The chemical leads to dry skin and drowsiness while irritating the eyes, nose, and throat. Another major risk associated with using isopropyl alcohol is that it is a very flammable substance, so its presence in a working environment can produce an unsafe workplace for employees.

Acetone

Acetone is another ingredient that is found in some industrial degreasing solvents that is also an extreme fire hazard. Employees who come in frequent contact with acetone have reported skin dryness, headaches, and even eyes, nose, and throat irritation.

Freon

Freon is not a common ingredient in industrial degreasing solvents but is still present in some solutions. While this chemical contains a low level of toxicity and low fire hazard level, it can still cause employees to experience dry skin and light headedness.

These are just some of the substantial number of harmful chemicals that can be found in industrial degreasing solvents. Businesses should protect their employees by doing their homework before purchasing degreasers, with the best choice usually being to buy organic.
