Are you ready for the hottest season in the country? At a recent event, Electrolux Philippines gave some tips for home design, organizing and cleaning in time for summer. Also introduced are the latest appliances for a summer-ready home with Electrolux. The season usually means going out on a vacation with the entire family, but you can also have fun even when at home.
Traveling to different places all the time is not the most practical thing to do this summer. But for kids on school break, staying home can be boring. Good thing you can bring summer at home.
Make a Summer-Ready Home
At the Electrolux Summer-Ready Home event, guest speaker Amina Aranaz-Alunan, founder, executive director and teacher of SoFA Design Institute, and Creative Director of fashion accessories and bag label ARANÁZ, talked about hot trends in home decorating in the summer. She shared ideas for DIY projects, and also gave some budget-friendly tips for moms on giving their homes a summer makeover.
Meanwhile, Janice Villanueva, successful mompreneur and founder of Mommy Mundo, a community of moms dedicated to making motherhood easier, shared her Summer Ready Home Checklist, with hacks on keeping the home clean and clutter-free and fun summer activities for the family.
For the kitchen, Janice talked about the importance of cleaning out the refrigerator, including all compartments and interiors, throwing out expiring food and restocking on fresh food, including a mix of different kinds of foods that kids will like. She advised moms to put these in easy to access containers so the kids (if age appropriate) can help themselves when they’re hungry.
She also reminded moms to sit down with the helpers to plan a menu since kids will be home all day – and to make sure they have healthy morning snacks and a filling merienda so kids don’t grab junk food in between.
When it comes to cooking, homemakers should make sure to clean the kitchen stove top and oven to make sure things are running properly. Cooking or baking sessions with the kids are also a great summer activity that teaches them a new skill while allowing moms to bond with them.
Hot and humid weather also means more allergens so moms should make sure to vacuum sofas, curtains, the rugs and even the bed and stuffed animals! Moms can even teach the kids to vacuum. “It’s actually a lot of fun for them and you can also reward them for doing chores,” Janice said.
Aside from providing summer-ready tips, Electrolux also launched their latest products that can help moms achieve a summer-ready home.
Electrolux UltimateCare Front Load Washing Machine
When I was a kid, I remember doing my laundry during summer. Yep, that’s part of my training from my mom. I wish we have a washing machine back then. Now, this appliance is one of my best friend. Of course, it’s nothing close to the Electrolux UltimateCare Front Load Washing Machine presented at the event.
This washing machine promises clean and soft clothes that look vibrant and new for longer. It’s perfect for summer days where kids are more active and washing happens more frequently. The Electrolux UltimateCare Front Load Washing Machine is packed with energy-efficient features that provides expert care for every kind of fabric, to make laundry a pleasure, not a chore.
It was designed with the exclusive UltraMix™ System to deliver exceptional deep clean and better color care. It effectively pre-mixes the detergent with water, dissolving it before they reach the laundry and fully activating its cleaning power. I need this in my life!
Electrolux Vita Inverter Split-Type Air Conditioner
The first thing that caught my attention when I arrived at the Electrolux Summer-Ready Home event is the Electrolux Vita Inverter Split-Type Air Conditioner. I work from home and I badly needed an air conditioning inside my room. Unfortunately, I can’t install the usual window-type unit because of my room’s configuration. Only a split-type unit will do.
I learned that this is the perfect aircon to cool homes this summer and keep the air clean. It has Active Plasma ion that helps eliminate viruses and bacteria and Inverter Technology that delivers energy savings with its advanced technological features, making the units energy efficient and eco-friendly. This gives remarkable advantages: low noise, energy savings and optimal temperature without sudden changes.
Electrolux UltraFlex Vacuum Cleaner
Then there’s the Electrolux UltraFlex Vacuum Cleaner which provides families high performance clean and an ergonomic design that makes it really easy to use. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of vacuum cleaner because the ones I’ve used is not easy to work with. But a demo done at the event showed that this one from Electrolux is totally different.
And we were told that has a Turbo Cyclonic Design that efficiently separates the dust. That’s perfect for dusty summer days as the Electrolux UltraFlex comes with a HEPA13 Washable Exhaust filter, which seals 99% of dust and allergens, and a Replaceable Carbon Layer. It has received 5 Stars SLG on Filtration Efficiency and was also awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval from the British Allergy Foundation.
Electrolux NutriFresh Inverter Refrigerator
Of course, summer at home won’t be complete without delicious food and refreshing drinks. I’d say the fridge is one of the most hard-working home appliances around during summer, and the NutriFresh Inverter Refrigerator can take on all the load. Plus it keeps food fresh for up to 7 days, ensuring that families have fresh ingredients for healthier and more flavorful meals this summer!
The NutriFresh Inverter Refrigerator features a FreshShield Crisper which comes with a unique tight seal for 5x higher humidity and more stable temperature to keep your fruits and vegetables stay fresh for up to 7 days.
Electrolux Cooking Range with Induction Cooktop & Electric Oven
Another training I received when I was a kid was cooking. The experience actually sparked my interest in the kitchen and I would dream of having an oven so I can bake. The dream came back when I saw the Electrolux Cooking Range with Induction Cooktop & Electric Oven.
For moms, having this cooking appliance is an advantage because of the induction and oven cooking at the same time. Induction is faster than other cooking technologies, boiling one liter of water in three minutes, allowing families to enjoy tasty meals in no time. The Electrolux Cooking Range with Induction Cooktop & Electric Oven also comes with Precise Temperature Control that allows one to go from high to low heat instantly so one never undercook or overcook again.
With a little planning, organizing and creativity, you can have a summer-ready home. Of course, the latest Electrolux home appliances will bring summer to your home in the next level.
