Car Seva during monsoon

Car is the most comfortable and convenient mode of transport during monsoons. To help your car reach you home safe and dry, you need to ensure that your car is monsoon ready. Here are a few must do’s to ensure you and your car are safe in the rains:
Get your car serviced: Many defer car servicing to a period after monsoon as they wish to wash away the dirt and mud of rains at the end of the season. However your car needs to brave the season for which you need to get the car in the right shape. Book your appointment today!
Wipers: Your windscreen wipers are one of the most important parts of your car during monsoon. Remember you have not used them for the past many months. Clean them gently, check for wear and tear of the rubber, if need be change them. They cost very less but the price you pay for bad wipers might be high.
Tyres: The most critical thing that is keeping you safe are the tyres. Hydroplaning (skidding) and aquaplaning (losing contact with the rained out road) are the two common problems faced during monsoon. Right tyre pressure, cleaning of dirt and mud from the tyres are a must. Perform the one rupee coin test to judge your tyres yourself.
One rupee coin test: take a one rupee coin and insert into the tread of your tyre. Note how deep the coin goes in to the tyre. Repeat for all tyres. If the depth is equal for all tyres good. Or else get the tyres checked or changed.
Brakes: You know how important this part is. When the car wades through water, water wets the brake drums reducing braking efficiency. Get your cars brake calipers which should be regularly cleaned or if needed be replaced. Drying your car brakes after wading through water is also very important. Press the brake with your left foot as you gently throttle in with your right foot. This will dry your brakes of water and make them more efficient.
Interiors: Mud is a variant that is certainly not part of your cars interiors. Clean any dirt or mud or oil slicks immediately from your with a dry cloth. Keep an eye on the floor carpet as it will take the maximum dirt. Cover and clean to keep it in good shape and look. If water has entered the car, empty the water, leave the windows and doors open to dry and avoid fungus.
Electricals: Modern cars are full of electrical and electronic gadgets. Water is not their friends. Get the battery checked and also all the electrical especially lights to ensure safe journey on a rainy dark night.
Other essentials: Keep these in your car without fail. Car charger, umbrella, hammer, dry wiping cloth and a medical kit. If you are stuck in the car, please use the hammer to break open your front windshield or windows to exit the car in case of an emergency. Keep an eye on the fuel gauge lest you get stranded on the road for want of fuel.

How to care for your furniture during monsoons

The long awaited monsoon is finally here. While that’s great news for all of us, it might not be equally great news for your furniture, walls and carpets i.e. if do not give the required care. Here are a few useful tips to maintain your furniture during the rains.

Wooden furniture tends to get effected with the rains.  To ensure you retain the beauty of your wooden delights, follow these simple steps:

  1. Move away from doors and windows. This simple steps saves a lot of wear and tear of your furniture. Drops of rain will harm your furniture as moisture makes your furniture to swell. Move the furniture into the house away from the rain drops. Keeping the house dry to ensure low humidity adds life to your furniture.
  2. Keep your furniture few inches away from the walls to prevent any moisture from getting transferred from walls to furniture. It is also easy to clean!
  3. Don’t use a wet cloth to clean the furniture. For the same reason as above, wet cloth will transfer moisture to the furniture. Instead use a dry cloth to clean the furniture of any dust.
  4. Drawers and doors get stuck during monsoon as the wooden furniture absorbs moisture and swells. Oiling and waxing will ensure that your furniture’s drawers and doors are smooth and easy to use. Spray-on-wax is a very useful item to do this maintenance.
  5. Postpone any new painting or renovation work on your furniture during monsoon as the high moisture in the air will not facilitate the right output. Instead stick to plain maintenance.
  6. Use camphor or naphthalene or cloves in furniture compartments as they are brilliant absorbers of moisture and keep termites away.

Carpets tend to get very dirty during monsoon. If you can, please roll up your expensive rug and store in a dry place. Fungus and mold grows on heavy carpets. Suggest you replace with a coir or similar mats. It will give a different look to your home and also save your carpet from humidity related problems. Regular vacuuming will ensure that your carpets are clean and dry. Use expert carpet cleaning services to ensure a long and beautiful life for your wonderful Persian or Kashmiri rugs.

How to have a fancy wedding on a budget by renting things

Wedding

Who doesn’t dream of having a beautiful wedding? One that stays in everyone’s mind for a long time. Remember when you were a child, you imagined yourself having the most perfect fairy-tale wedding and grew up only to realize that it costs too much? Want to have a wedding that looks luxurious without spending a fortune? We have a handful of tips for you to do just that.

Read on:

  • If you don’t want to spend a king’s ransom on the décor, choose a venue that has an interesting character of its own. Instead of having a run of the mill function hall for a venue, choose an art gallery, a zoo, a waterfall, or a historical site.
  • Choose a specific theme or motif and use it through the entire event. Make sure the invitations, programs, favors, and even escort cards carry the same design. It not only looks stylish but also high end.
  • Play with colors. Use pastels with deeply contrasting rich hues. Colours like deep purple, rich chocolate and hot pink will add nattiness without you having to spend green.
  • Don’t include a million dishes in the menu and have the buffet table filled with heaps of food. Instead choose to have dainty and delectable hors d’oeuvres served by tuxedo clad butlers followed by a few yet scrumptious meal options. You will save on money and up the style quotient by more than a few notches.
  • Have the chef make unique food presentations. It’s not always about what you serve but how you serve. If you want to go the extra mile, rent items such as expensive china, ceramic spoons, and attractive seasoning holders and put them to good use.
  • Lighting makes all the difference. A few bright and beautiful lights that accentuate the focal point of the venue will change the whole feel of the setting. You can even use a high end contemporary chandelier as a key element and work with the surrounding lights to match the feel. We know a high end chandelier is worth a fortune. The idea is not to buy it, but rent it. Online rentals are totally in now and to rent things has become easier than ever.
  • Don’t ruin a whole ‘fab wedding’ look with ugly plastic or metal chairs. Look for furniture rentals up online and choose white suede or satin upholstered ones. If you want your guests to remember you for forever, you want to seat them comfortably.
  • Wrought iron trees look snazzy at wedding venues. Get a large one and then rent items such as glittering ornaments, hanging votives, picture frames and running lights and hang them all for a super chic backdrop to a perfect wedding.
  • Fresh flowers for table centrepieces could get pricey. Choose romantic candelabras instead and drape them in faux crystals. You can even use coloured river pebbles in glass bowls with led lights to make it look opulent. Remember to rent anything you don’t already have.
  • Metallic items look expensive but cost pretty much the same as its counterparts. Champagne shades for linens, gold sequinned tassels on curtains, and gold boxes for wedding favours will spell luxe without costing it.
  • Instead of hiring a whole band you can have one or two music artists such as a pianist and a guitarist and have them play soothing music. Better still, rent a bunch of good speakers and DJ equipment and have your ‘cousin who loves music’ do the needful.
  • Don’t spend silly money on a full-fledged open bar. Instead choose to offer your guests a signature cocktail that complements the wedding colours.
  • Lastly, you don’t need an elaborate wedding cake (turns out very pricey) to make a statement. You can instead have the baker to decorate your cake with fresh flowers that match your décor and go less on the sugar paste.

There you go! In an age where you can employ rental services for just about anything, hosting lavish parties on a budget has become a reality.

Go have the wedding of your dreams without feeling the lightness in your pocket.

Mend things or rent things but reuse them!

Mend items 1

Reusing essentially is employing activities to lengthen the life of a product. If you own a product, it is important to create a need to reuse it before trashing it off. Why is reuse so important? Why can’t you just use and throw stuff?

Well here’s answering your question:

  • We are creating a dangerous waste stream that is only spiralling. Reuse hence, keeps products and materials off the waste stream for a longer time.
  • Reuse advances source reduction. Fewer raw materials are used to produce fewer items because replacement products reduce.
  • The embodied energy that was used to manufacture an item is preserved when it is reused.
  • Making a new product always contributes minutely or significantly to air and water pollution. When the need to manufacture new products reduces, it brings down pollution levels too.
  • Reuse accomplishes the goal to support a productive economy more effectively than recycling because product reuse reduces the strain on valuable and limited resources of mother earth such as fuel, water supply, and forests.
  • Product reuse creates a chain of affordable supply of goods (often of good quality), so more people gain access to them.
  • The money spent on purchasing an item and then its disposal costs are greatly reduced when the items are put up for reuse.
  • Most importantly, individuals and organizations are better enabled to access resources that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to acquire because of product reuse.

Sustained growth in reuse efforts will go a long way in building a better world for our present as well as our future generations. Passing on collected goods to others with little or no processing is the best we can do to safeguard our planet.

If the reasons are enough to make you want to start reusing (big things start small), here’s how you can take positive efforts:

  • Repair items than can be repaired. Just a little fixing up will give the product new life and save you money. Before thrashing every single item in your house, ask yourself if it could be fixed if you tried.
  • Some items that are beyond repair can still be handed over for remanufacturing. The manufacturer takes the product, breaks it down and rebuilds it using some of the original parts and a tad bit of new raw material.
  • If the product is in good condition, rent it out. There may be several out there who desperately need products that you consider obsolete. Renting products are the easiest way for some to access items they cannot afford to own. What’s more, if you rent things you don’t use, you earn a little extra bucks while making space in your home.
  • You can choose to donate your stuff (that is collecting dust in your home and you don’t wish to use it). Some rental companies such as SabRentKaro run special programs for people stuck in natural calamities wherein they can rent things for free for limited periods of time. Helping someone in need is better than any satisfaction a new product can bring.
  • You can even choose to get things for yourself on rent rather than investing in new products. That way you can try before you buy or better, choose not to buy later because the rental sufficed your need!

There you go! Conserving the planet is easier than you think. Happy reusing.
