Very Important! HE Detergent
THIS WASHING MACHINE REQUIRES SPECIAL DETERGENT
USING OTHER DETERGENTS WILL CAUSE IT TO OVERFLOW
USE ONLY HE (HIGH EFFICIENCY) DETERGENTS
FYI - IMPORTANT
Please do not flush sanitary napkins or tampons down the toilet. Also, do not pour grease or oil down the drain, please pour in empty bottle provided, under the kitchen sink and dispose of in the garbage. We are on a septic tank and this will cause it to clog and the toilets, sinks, showers to back up. Not very pleasant.
All garbage must be bagged in order for the garbage collector to pick up. Beer or other bottles can be left in the cases and set out by the garbage bins. Garbage is normally collected on Tuesday and Friday. If they do not collect it please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will have it removed.
Please turn lights and electronics off when leaving a room or when not in use. Electricity is very expensive on the island and we strive to leave a small footprint on our earth.
If you need anything or have any questions at all during your stay do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to assist.
Please take care of our home as if it were your own. We have worked very hard to have a special place to enjoy our family. We are happy to share it with you, but please be considerate. Please leave it in the same condition as it is when you arrive.
Before you leave, please take out the garbage, load and run the dishwasher, hang the wet towels. Do not strip the beds, the cleaning person will do that. Thank you!
