Stay home & stay safe with ten top tips for safety at home with Fairy Non Bio.

 

Our favourites for George, Fairy Non Bio have worked with ROSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents), to create some top tips to help keep all of our children safe at home. With more of us spending more time at home, these tips are more important than ever, to prevent accidents and help relieve the pressures on the NHS.

Fairy Non Bio is also partnering and working alongside, presenter, model and mum Vogue Williams, who took to Instagram to share a sneak peek of how she cares for gorgeous baby Theo.

Vogue: “Spending more time at home means it’s more important than ever to make our homes safer for our little ones. I’m excited to continue working with Fairy Non Bio to raise awareness of the unexpected hazards in the home – including during the laundry, cooking and even just getting ready in the morning.

Taking little actions can make a real difference. For example, when doing laundry, it’s important to always close the pack with a ‘click clack’ sound and keep out of reach of children.”

Top Tips Include:

THE LAUNDRY POD – Laundry pods are made to be used by adults. Treat them how you would all household items. Keep them out of reach of children and close the pack securely with a click clack after use.

THE HAIR STRAIGHTNER – Unplug and put them away and out of reach of children straight after use, to avoid burns.

THE HOT DRINK – Keep out of reach of children, so they don’t accidently spill hot liquid on themselves.

THE CURTAIN CORD – Keep curtain cords wrapped up high and tight so children cannot play with them.

THE POT AND PAN – When cooking, turn pot and pan handles inwards.

THE GRAPE – Cut grapes into small pieces so that children can easily eat them.

THE HANDBAG – Keep handbags up high to avoid toddlers putting small items in their mouth.

THE BUTTON & COIN BATTERY – Coin batteries are more common in household items, but are very dangerous if left loose. Dispose of straight away, as they are a common choking risk for children.

THE PENCIL – Pencils count as sharp items so it’s important to keep them out of reach of little hands, and supervise very young children when they are using them.

THE DISHWASHER POD – Keep dishwasher pods out of reach of children and use the child lock feature to keep the door closed whilst the cycle is on.

Hello 2019… and hello new! Dive into Everhot kitchens for every home.

150 Marine Blue (FLAT) V1 (2), (HI RES)

2019 has made a call for house renovation, and a kick up the bum for us as we’ve had some exciting news over Christmas – and we need to be ready for another little person joining the family!

Kitchen may not be first on our priority but we’ve been looking at every option we have… and the cold bitter weather and the need to ever be a bit more energy friendly to assist with the bills had led us to look at the full range of Everhot cookers…

An Everhot is a cooker where the kettle’s always poised to make a fresh coffee, where cakes are evenly baked and where the family can warm their hands while you enjoy a glass of wine.  Providing the beating, warm heart of the kitchen, it will quietly provide a steady heat all-day while using less than half the energy of a comparable range cooker.

A good range cooker should last a lifetime. Instead of needing 35 amps of electricity – like its major rivals – an Everhot is designed to work on a ‘trickle feed’ of less than 13 amps. This means (quite apart from much lower energy bills) it is particularly well suited to running off solar panels and water turbines. (Which could also lead into our VERY future plans – but will keep the cooker relevant to our household forever)

Everhot say that their blue sky thinking means that its cookers are also easy to control and great to cook on and there is no need for servicing or any complicated flues or pipes – making it easy to take your Everhot with you when you move home too.

We spotted this gorgeous just launched NEW Marine Blue cooker (they offer 15 colour options so there really is an Everhot for every kitchen – see below) which would look fabulous in a new modern or even a country kitchen. The marine blue would look amazing in a sea/river side kitchen looking our onto the scenery.

Everhot cookers, fifteen colours are: Dusky Pink, Fern Green, Aubergine, Black, Blue, Burgundy, Cream, Dove Grey, Graphite, Green, Sage, White, Teal and the NEW Victoria and Marine Blues.

Everhot 150 (Marine Blue), from £10,275; Everhot 90 (Dusky Pink), from £6,575; Everhot 100+ (Aubergine), £7,695;; Everhot 110 (Teal), from £8,775
