The house is at its best when it is tidy and semi-organised. If you feel like something is dirty: clean it. Take your initiative, never anticipate. This especially counts for the living room, kitchen and bathroom. There are no obligations, just common courtesy. And whatever you do, enjoy doing it or leave it for another person who will.
Together we clean
- It's common to take off your shoes at the entrance.
- Hospitality works best when things are organised and clean. When the house is messy, it will be harder for people to find their way.
- There are lists of daily, weekly and monthly "fun tasks" on toilet-door, to help keep the house nice and tidy.
- Bathroom needs a scrub once in a while to keep bathroom tiles white and clean. Good boys sit down to pee.
- The condition of the bathroom stays nicer when you dry it after shower
We love to Recycle
- Most stuff can be brought right outside, any time. You can put the garbage-bags in the container in front of the house. If you see a bag full with trash, remind yourself to take it with you!
- Plastic goes at corner of Bestevaerstraat and Jan van Galenstraat. Put plastic waste in a closed plastic bag.
- Turn left, left, second right and you'll find recycling boxes for paper and glass. Another recycling box, also for cotton and clothes (put them in a closed bag) you'll find by turning right, walk 150 meters, next to the canal.
- Glass with refund goes to the supermarkets: some beer bottles. Organic juice bottles go to the organic store.
- Big trash and big electronical equipment can be put outside in front of the house, between the pavement and the tree from Monday's 9pm until Tuesday 10am.
- Small chemical trash (batteries, paint) and some other related trash can be brought to a special car next to the recycling bins (turn right outside of the house) every third tuesday of the month 09.00 – 09.30
- There are clean linens in almost every room. They are stored in the Barn and in the Slagroom. Do use them.
- When you leave, it would be great if you can wash the linen or ask someone to take care of them
- A room doesn't belong to anyone, you are using it. Help making each room you're using nicer for the next person who comes
- Keep your own mess organised.
