Life’s A Party…So Be Prepared

Everybody loves surprises, don’t they? You know the good kind like a surprise picnic on a summer’s day, a surprise dinner at the end of a busy week or a surprise birthday party even though it’s not a special year. But then, there are the not so good surprises that usually start off with,’oh darling didn’t I tell you, I’ve invited six people for dinner tomorrow night! Aarrgghhhh…it’s about this time when your brain goes into overdrive and starts to plan menus; seating arrangements; what to wear and, most importantly, what needs to be cleaned! We can all live with a not-so-crunchy crème brulee but can we live with a not-so-gleaming house?

  • There's one thing you'll be happy to add to your expanding 'to do' list. Get down to your local supermarket and hire a Britex carpet cleaning machine. They work wonders on any fabric surface and provide an ideal deep clean or a quick freshen up to carpets, rugs, sofas or curtains.
  • Britex Carpet Care is Australia's largest provider of DIY rental carpet cleaning machines, with over 30 years of trusted service, and is available at over 2,000 locations across Australia. The Britex machine uses the hot-water extraction method which, unlike steam or dry cleaning, gets right down to the fibres of the carpet giving it a deeper clean. This method removes the toughest dirt from carpet and upholstery safely and gently. It works by injecting hot water, combined with special cleaning products which can be purchased when hiring the machine. Industrial strength suction then removes the water and engrained dirt, dust and allergens. You are left with clean, rejuvenated and fresher fabrics.
  • With a Britex, you have one less worry, so you can concentrate on being a fabulous hostess.
  • You can even use the Britex machine to clean the car interior while you're at it…or perhaps that can be a job for your beloved. After all, you'll want a nice clean car to sit in when they are taking you out for the evening to say thank you! …and if you're a fan of Britex, make sure you visit them on Facebook!
