10 ways to Do More With Less this Holiday Season






‘Tis the season to be a supermom! In between your kids’ Christmas parties in school, reunions with family and friends, plus, the most awaited Noche Buena - hack your way through the holidays with these 10 practical, energy-and-time saving tips from Electrolux.


1. Plan and prepare your meals and trips to the grocery.
Nothing beats careful planning to ensure that you have everything that you need, when you need it. It saves you from unnecessary trips to and from the supermarket when you forget an ingredient or two. Set your budget - make an inventory, organize your recipes, create your menus, and schedule your shopping.

2. Wine things up!
Planning a party at home? Surprise your guests with richer wines by freezing some grapes and popping them in glasses to keep the wine cold without watering it down. Store your wine in the Electrolux Vino Wine Cooler and ensure you serve your wine perfectly all the time. You can also freeze leftover wines in ice-cube trays for reuse when preparing meat dishes and spaghetti sauces.

3. Freeze your meals.
There’s no need to throw away leftovers.  Minimize food wastage by storing them in a tight lid container, putting a label, and freezing them. Properly frozen meals in your Electrolux NutriFresh™ Refrigerator and it can last up to 2 months without losing their taste and texture.

4. Maximize your rice cooker.
Believe it or not, the humble rice cooker can actually go beyond its initial purpose. Electrolux rice cookers are designed with a 4-in-1 cooking feature that keeps dishes warm, cooks soups and porridge, and steams dishes. If you don’t have the space for a full stove or a large kitchen in your living space, it might be just what you need for your next potluck weekend.

5. Maintain the quality of your carpets with a vacuum cleaner.
While spills on your carpet are unavoidable with kids running around, the abrasive rubbing of stains will only cause the fiber to mat. Instead, use a wet-dry vacuum cleaner such as the Electrolux Wet and Dry Z931 vacuum cleaner to remove the dirt around the stain. Then try soaking up the stain with a wet towel pressed repeatedly onto it, repeat the process with a dry towel to ensure all the liquid has been absorbed.

6. Steam your clothes for a wrinkle-free finish.
Leaving your un-ironed shirt hanging in the bathroom while you take a hot shower will practically get all the wrinkles out. Or better yet, treat yourself this Christmas to an Electrolux UltraMix™ Front Load Washing Machine with a Refresh Cycleprogram that removes creases and folds and naturally de-wrinkles your clothes. Less time for laundry, more time for the family.

7. Use the floss.
Besides using it to clean your teeth, unwaxed dental floss can also be your trusty kitchen helper. It can be used to slice cakes and soft cheeses, as well as to tie-up poultry and rolled meats.

8. Run no more.
Glamming up for your office Christmas party has never been easier with this little trick. Make your stockings last longer by spritzing a little hairspray to avoid getting runs in them. The sticky residue will hold the fabric together, and stressful moments will be the last thing on your mind.

9. Upcycle!
Turn ordinary moments into fun bonding sessions with the kids through upcycling. Gather used Christmas wrappers for decorations in scrapbooks and school projects; make handmade dolls from old materials like socks, buttons and hairpins; or upcycle an old dress into a pretty apron. Be creative and resourceful, the possibilities are endless!

10. Clean your refrigerator with salt.
Now is the perfect time to clear the unnecessary clutter in your refrigerator for the upcoming rush of hams, fruitcakes, wines, and all the goodies you need for Noche Buena. Clean your fridge by mixing a handful of salt with about 3 liters of warm water. The mixture is chemical free and gentle on sensitive surfaces.

With Electrolux appliances, you can simply Do More With Less at home this holiday season. Create a meaningful Christmas by having more time for the family and less time for the chores, more savings with less expenses, more wellness with less stress, and more care with less worry.
