Housekeeping information

You and your neighbours are responsible for keeping your accommodation clean.

To help with this we've provided you with microfibre cloths and three InnuScience cleaning products: Nu-Multi Kleen, Nu-Bioscrub and Nu-Kleen All. We chose InnuScience as their products are eco-label certified, cruelty free and in the diluted form provided in your kitchens are not classified as hazardous or as an irritant. 

Due to its ingredients the diluted InnuScience bottles in your kitchen will need to be returned to your housekeeper every 12 weeks for them to be replaced and refilled. We also suggest that you match the microfibre cloth to the same colour InnuScience product to avoid cross usage. Once used these cloths can then be washed in with your own washing so you can keep reusing them throughout your time with us. For advice on how to use InnuScience products in your accommodation please watch the short video below.

Housekeeping Top Tips

  1. We recommend that you meet together after you move in to agree a cleaning rota between yourselves so that everybody does their fair share and a hygienic living environment is maintained. To help with this we have created a kitchen rota (PDF 504KB) which has a cleaning and usage rota combined that can help you manage kitchen usage during busy times and fairly divide tasks.

  2. Recycle responsibly. There are labels on each bin in the bin store to tell you what can be recycled so be sure to double check and sort your rubbish before you bring it down and put it in the right bin. Don't know where your bin store is? Check out this handy map (PDF 97KB) which marks where each one is across our accommodation areas. Most importantly, don't forget to close the bin lid once you've disposed of your rubbish!
