Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Removing mould from curtains

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Rotorua

Linings and bottom of curtains are a common place for black mould to grow. Don't be alarmed - it means that the curtains are doing their job! It can, however, be difficult to remove. Time and time again we've helped customers who nearly had to throw their curtains out as they think it is un-fixable, or, attempted to remove it themselves and shrunk or wrinkled their gorgeous drapes. Remember - we can help with that! We've been in this business for over 20 years and are experts at removing mould. If your curtains look like these, call us!!
