If you’re staying snug at home this holiday season, there are still some things that you can keep to hand to ensure maximum comfort.
The temperature in our homes might be colder than usual with a lot of people trying not to turn their heating on due to energy price increases. So when you make your morning coffee or tea, why not use a Thermos instead of a mug, which will keep your drink hotter for so much longer in the cold air.
Whether or not you’re turning your heating on this year, it’s cold enough outside that you don’t want that icy air creeping into your home – or your warm air inside escaping. Using a draught stopper/excluder will help to prevent this. This is either a metal strip that’s placed under a door or window frame or a plush weighted pillow. There are lots of different materials and colours available.
As the air can be extremely dry during winter, this can lead to irritated eyes and itchy skin. A humidifier will add back valuable moisture to the air. More importantly, they also help reduce the risk of infections as bacteria and viruses cannot travel as well in moist air.
