Game Changers for Changeovers
Changeover days can be one of the most challenging aspects of running a B&B, and the list of day-to-day housekeeping jobs you have to keep on top of can seem endless. With this in mind, at Out of Eden we’ve spent the last 25 years producing a collection of time and money saving products to ensure your changeover days run as smoothly as possible…

SPOT THE SIZE IN SECONDS
We believe that sometimes it can be the smallest extra touches that make all the difference when it comes to working towards a quick turnaround, which is why we consciously decided to make our super soft 100% cotton 500g towels easily identifiable with 1, 2 or 3 header bars to indicate different towel sizes. Not only that, our polycotton bed linen sets have sewn-in colour coded tabs allowing you to quickly distinguish if it’s a single, double, king or super-king sized sheet, while all of our duvets, supplied by the luxury bedding company dùsal, have a handy label indicating the bottom of the duvet to further speed up guest room preparation when changing the beds.
Though you might have a certain target market in mind for your luxury B&B, it’s inevitable that you’ll have a variety of guests outside of this customer base staying with you too, including families, couples, groups of friends, or solo travellers. It’s essential, therefore, to ensure that you can accommodate each and every guest in your rooms, whether this be a couple wanting to share a bed, or friends requiring twin beds. That’s where the Quick Link comes in. Exclusive to Out of Eden, the Quick Link strap easily slips around two single beds, then once the fabric is clipped together and tightened, voila – you now have a super-king size bed! The Quick Link strap even comes with a handy washable polycotton strip to go along the middle of the mattress, to avoid any unwanted gaps.
To accompany the Quick Link, we also offer Zip & Link duvets. With their neatly concealed zip, two single duvets can effortlessly be zipped together to provide a super king size duvet. Not only will this save you from investing in separate duvets and having to constantly swap them over depending on your guests’ preferences, in offering this versatility in your rooms you can also vastly increase your occupancy rates with options bound to suit everyone.
LIGHTNING SPEED LAUNDERING
Ironing is undoubtedly at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to time-consuming, menial housekeeping tasks. It can be monotonous when done in-house with a domestic iron yet deceptively pricey when sent to an external launderer, so why not try the Blanca Laundry Press instead? Specially manufactured for use in B&Bs, guesthouses and hotels, the press is small enough to be packed away after use and large enough to stand up to your ever-growing laundry pile in a commercial environment. With its ability to iron up to 4 layers of bed linen, sheets or tablecloths at a time while effortlessly providing that essential crisp finish, not only will you save money in the long-run, but getting everything done in-house will provide an even quicker turnaround, and allow you to oversee every aspect of your B&B.
