Summer in the country is something to prepare for because the heat is no joke. It can get you hot-headed fast in more ways than one. Travel is a good option but for those who have to stay home for whatever reason, here are some ways to keep the mood happy and to avoid nasty conflicts within your home. Leading home appliances brand Electrolux offer some suggestions for moms to get the home ready for summer.
At the recently launched Make Your Home Summer Ready launch, Electrolux Philippines presented tips on summer home design, cleaning and organizing the home, and shared news on its latest appliances designed to help make your homes #ElectroluxSummerReady.
Electrolux Summer Ready Home 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, 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, Villanueva 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.
Villanueva 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,” Villanueva said.
Aside from providing summer ready tips, Electrolux also launched their latest products that can help moms achieve a summer ready home.
