I know life can be really busy, and we often hear in the Community Center that you are having to juggle many things at the same time. This is often where having a handy hosting routine can be a great help!
We’ve had many great conversations about what you do to make hosting easier and more time efficient. I thought it would be great to bundle a few together, as there are some amazing tips: Here are a few highlights:
There are a variety of methods that can help you to host, including many time saving tools or devices. From setting up saved message templates to potentially spreading the load with a co-host or even hiring a cleaner. Different things work for different hosts.
Do any of these sound familiar to you? Have you managed to get into a good hosting routine and if so what methods have you found the most useful?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

@Helen427 Do you have any good tips on cleaning windows? It never fails when I clean Then they still have streaks.
Thanks @Jenny1058 for your reply
Sorry we have only just found this, yes we use Scrunched up newspaper which can if you like be mixed into the garden soil and decompose naturally afterwards.
A rather interesting thing Iearnt through an uninvited guest in my home, slugs clean up dirty windows and shower glass walls amazingly 🙂
I have never ever intentionally encouraged them but realised that's what those clear trails are from at times in those places.
I also looked up archived newspapers and found some funny stories to!!
@Stephanie when Peter discovers these little critters and brings them inside, explore!!
@Michelle1164 I use plain hot water run over newsprint papers and scrunch them up. Wipe the window whichever way I'm in the mood to do, then use a dry scrunched up piece of newspaper to dry them off.
I try do mine in the morning so as not to get condensation as I find if I do it later in the day I do.
Some people use a method of wiping windows say sideways on the inside then longways on the outside as it's easier to see which side may not be squeaky clean!
All the best
@Helen427 Plain hot water, hmmm. Have to try that instead of Windex or other window cleaner. I have tried the wipe longways and sideways for indoor vs outdoor. I’ve used paper towels and even a window squeegee. Always leaves streaks. Live on a dirt road so have come to the understanding that dirty windows just comes with the territory. But those streaks drive me crazy.
@Michelle1164I have empathy re dirt road as windows so regularly dusty.
As hot as can be, I wear good solid gloves.
If necessary, try adding a splash of vinegar to the hot water & definitely use newspaper and plenty of elbow grease.
Let us know if it works
I clean and manage the property myself; it's a small house, so doesn't take much time.
I use template messages and I leave the cleaning material in the house; when I get out of the house, I go to the laundry, and while waiting for the close, I report the new guest to the foreigners services in the laptop, and send the information to the fiscality services.
We are new to hosting, and love to see post like this. I am using the app TurnoverBnB to help with the cleaning schedule. My cleaner is synch'd up on her app and she is able to see my booking dates and check-out times. With each booking she is able to accept my cleaning which ensures me that it will be done. what is also nice is that you can also message through the app. Again, new to hosting, but this has saved a lot of time for us. @Stephanie
