Uh Oh! It’s All Gone Dark!

 

At least we got advance notice this time. On the 2nd June (Friday), we have been informed by the power company, they are having to upgrade some wires in our area and are having to shutdown the power grid for a while.

We have been told it will be from 9am to 12pm.

For an online business this is a little bit of a problem for us as besides the no lights problem, it also means we will have no computers, no computers means no orders can be processed or taken, it also means we cannot communicate with anyone as it also kills our phones, so if you need to call us, you will have to leave a message and we will call you back when we are able or alternatively email

customerservice@homecareessentials.co.uk

and we will respond when we can get power back.

Thank you for your patience.

Spring Bank Holiday

 

You have got to love the month of May, just when you thought you could sneak quietly into June, it throws out another long weekend for us all, much to the consternation of the guv’nor who is now trying to figure out how to break the laws of physics and cram 5 days work into 4.

That being said, we will be closed on Monday the 29th, what this means is orders received after 3pm on Friday 26th will not be processed until Tuesday 30th May when we will resume normal service again and if it is anything like the last bank holiday weekend, we had over 1500 orders requested during the 3 days we were closed, that added a few more grey hairs let me tell you.

Please remember that Royal Mail will not be delivering on the Monday 29th May nor will there be any collections that day either, so please factor in the extra day to your delivery schedules.

From all of us at Homecare Essentials that will get to enjoy the long weekend, have a good bank holiday.

May Day Bank Holiday

Having only just recovered from the extended break that Easter gave us, we find ourselves facing another days holiday.

Our administration office will be closed on Monday 1st May

In practical terms it means we will be unable to process any orders received after 3pm on Friday 28th April until Tuesday 2nd May when normal service will be resumed.

This also means that Royal Mail will not be operating so no deliveries will occur nor will there be any collections from our warehouse on the Monday either.

Our office answerphone will be taking messages over the holiday weekend and emails will be replied to on the Tuesday when the office email pixie gets back from his weekend hibernation.

From all at Homecare Essentials Customer Team, Wishing you a Merry May Day.

Special Offer – Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce 150ml Bottles

Exclusive to our E-Bay store, we have a fantastic offer to share with you.

If you love the great taste of Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce, then now is the time to re-stock the pantry.

If you are one of those individuals who puts Hot Sauce on practically everything, then this is the deal for you.

We are virtually giving this away, why? I hear you ask. Simply due to the best before date which ends on the last day of July this year. That is 15 weeks of tongue warming, sweet, smoky goodness for the ridiculously low price of £2.50 a bottle and these aren’t the little bottles either, these are the restaurant sized 150ml bottles.

Yes! you can buy 1 bottle of Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce for only £2.50.

But, we are feeling generous today, so we have offered a half case of 3 bottles for the insanely low price of £3.95.

BUT WAIT!! we haven’t finished yet!

Why go for 3 bottles when we will offer you a case of 6 bottles (and I can’t believe I am about to say this) for only £7.49

Let me break that down for you, that’s a case of 6 bottles for less than £1.25 a bottle!

and because this is exclusive to our ebay store, it’s all FREE DELIVERY.

Here is the link to the listing on E-Bay,

For those of you who don’t like Chipotle, we are also offering a Case of 6 bottles of the Cholula Chili Garlic Flavour Hot Sauce as well for the same low price of £7.49 a Case.

Here is the link to that listing on E-Bay,

 

Right I’m off for a lay down, this is all too much.

Happy Easter Everyone.

 

Easter is upon us once again, this year it is late and almost clips the heels of the May bank holiday just around the corner.

This does mean that we get to enjoy a long weekend break, however, like all holidays in the retail trade, it carries a double edge. It means that our warehouse and administration staff will not be there to process and get your orders out the door (not that would be able to go anywhere if we were open, as our carriers and Royal Mail are also on a break).

Good Friday 14th April – Closed

Saturday 15th April – Closed

Sunday 16th April – Closed

Monday 17th April – Closed

Tuesday 18th April – Open as usual.

This means that any orders received after 3pm on Thursday 13th April may not be processed until Tuesday 18th April and orders cannot be dispatched after 4pm Thursday 13th April.

Please don’t forget to factor in the extra days lost in any delivery schedules that encompass the holiday period, this is especially true with Amazon and eBay estimated delivery schedules.

On behalf of all of us here at Homecare Essentials, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter.

New Product! Aquazzee. A Food Safe and 100% Natural Disinfectant

One of the biggest concerns that people have with their household cleaning regime is “are the products I am using really safe to use?” especially on kitchen surfaces where food is prepared.

Allow me to allay this particular concern. A brand new product crossed my desk recently and I feel I need to tell you all about it.

Introducing.

Aquazzee – Foosan. Made by a UK company called EezzeE,  it is a 100% natural disinfectant, so natural in fact, the principle ingredient is already a chemical that is naturally produced by our bodies Hypochlorous acid and saline, the product is so safe, below is a video demonstration of the product, the demonstrator actually drinks it!! (You can’t do that with Domestos!).

It goes on to kill 99.9999% of Pathogens and is effective against E. Coli, S. aureus, C.diff, MRSA and Norovirus (a nasty bunch, you wouldn’t want to contract).

KEY BENEFITS

  • FAST ACTING EFFICACY (< 1 MINUTE)
  • FOOD SAFE
  • DOES NOT TAINT FOOD
  • BIODEGRADABLE
  • DEODORISES
  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
  • DOESN’T REQUIRE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

Today, we rely on various chemicals to clean our environment and make it safe to inhabit, even though cleaning liquids are as safe as they can be and still be effective at doing their job, it is nice to know that there is a product on the market, that is completely safe to use, even if it does taste funny.

Available to buy now, click the link in green above or the image to be taken to the product page where for a limited time you can save £2.00 off the Recommended Retail Price or make greater savings by buying a case of 6.

Granite Gold Stock Is On The Horizon…

Quite literally as it happens. In fact, if you stand on the high water mark on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland with a good pair of binoculars, you could probably see the ship.

We have been reliably informed the the ship will make port on the 29th January conditions permitting. Give it a couple of days to unload and sort our stock out, a few more days for it to get inspected and passed through customs and then delivered to us, we should have the stock on the shelves 2nd week of February.

In anticipation of this joyous arrival, we have opened pre-orders for the stock items that were currently out of stock.

To make a pre-order, just order through the website as normal and we will dispatch the item(s) as soon as they are booked in. If you wish to order other products as well as place a pre-order, you can submit the one cart including the Granite Gold item you want, we will just hold dispatching the whole order until we can include the Granite Gold item or alternatively submit a separate order for the Granite Gold item separately from the other products.

Granite Gold Natural Stone Care Products have been produced in the USA for over 60 years and are widely regarded as one of the best family of products for this market and Homecare Essentials are proud to be the only “official” stockists in the UK.

Announcement! – A Brand New Product From HG Hagesan

This does not happen very often, where I get the chance to announce a new addition to the HG Hagesan family, but late last year, they unveiled a new variation of their incredible, best selling, Mould Spray.

HG Hagesan are great believers in the old adage “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. They only make a change to a product if it is absolutely necessary or to improve an already impressive item and make it better, and this is what they have done.They have taken the already brilliant Mould Spray and made it even better.

Introducing Mould Remover Foam Spray.

It still has the same fantastic mould eradication formula found in the liquid version Mould Spray but it is now a foam instead. What this means is that you have better control over where you want the product to go, it won’t spread out like a liquid and because it is a foam, it can stick to surfaces like walls and tiles and get right to the places that you want to treat, more effectively.

Another great benefit of it being a foaming agent over a liquid is that it is not as “pungent” as the liquid version, that said you still need to ventilate the room while using, it just means it won’t burn your nostril hairs like before. It is stronger too, meaning it takes a lot less effort to achieve the desired results, and no scrubbing is a win in anyone’s book.

All in all, Mould Remover Foam Spray is another step up from it’s older brother Mould Spray in the same way that Google is a step up from a library, they both do the same job, it’s just Google is easier to use and more convenient and I can easily see this being as popular if not more so than the currently massive selling Mould Spray. As always, click the green links to go directly to the product page.

Until the next time, Bye for now.
