Try investing in a Karcher window vac for shower screens and smooth walls. They really are the biz for this kind of thing. Saves so much time!

I will try the bed making with two people next week and report back Smile

Tournesol, the link to your site (tournesolbandb.com) doesn't work so I couldn't take a peek at your room but does it really take you FOUR hours to clean one bedroom and one bathroom?????
If you had a whole house to clean and you had to pay cleaners to do it I bet you wouldn't want them to take that long!

The shower screens are my biggest bug bear too, but we have very hard water and so have calcium to remove. Would the Karcher do this?

Any new equipment is not possible at the moment as we are operating on a shoestring budget! Hence one reason it takes a long time to clean rooms (including our own) since the steam mop packed up!
Also as we don't yet have many changes of bedding for the Superking and bunk beds I'm often also rushing round ironing things to go on the beds! Especially as we are dependent on the weather for drying, no tumble dryer.
And, as I said, I am a perfectionist!
We're currently updating the website so most of our info at the moment will be on b.com (Check out our triffids in the photos!) - not that we've had a single booking through the website, so we definitely need to do something!

I am definitely not "into" gadgets but the Karcher is an absolute boon and essential for shower screens and tiles in our hard water area. I wish I had known how briliant this little machine was years ago.

Highly recommended and I could not live without mine, it is as essential as a vacuum cleaner.
