Gadgets will do the job

A house should be well-maintained. But the sheer scale of the task in a large villa or flat, complete with modern accessories, can leave you running around in circles even before picking up the broom. Out you go to find labour, but the search may leave you drained and dissatisfied. What about handing over the task to gadgets or using specialised materials?

Outlets dealing in such products seem to be springing up in cities and towns. Hygiene Shop has a wide variety of machines and other products to help clean residential space.

People spend a lot of money on constructing a house or flat, and it needs much care to retain the buildings in the proper form, say the shop owners.The family lifestyle gets reflected in the upkeep of the residential premises, they add.

Home-cleaning accessories are available in various shops, and it takes considerable time to search for suitable ones. Hygiene Shop goes one step ahead by bringing together a variety of machines and materials in various categories and demonstrating their use. The customer can get first-hand information on new contraptions and substances used, many of them imported. Brooms, brushes, chemicals for cleaning, disinfectants, toilet paper, soap dispensers, kitchen rolls, laundry baskets and towels are among the products available. Brushes made of various materials come in different sizes and shapes.

The use of the appropriate brush will protect the original look of the floors and walls. For instance, those with hard bristles should not be used on glazed surfaces. Micro-fibre cloth, chandelier cleaner, furniture cleaner, glass cleaner, mop holders and dishwashing gadgets are available. A separate section sells home aromatics. The supermarkets generally do not provide a prominent place for home-cleaning equipment and products.

Theme based

Homestyle Interiors is another theme-based outlet, focussing on home interiors. Dry flowers, crockery, carpets, bed and linen, showpieces, fragrance containers, garden tools and garden umbrellas are among the products available.
