Some notes about the property to make your stay comfortable:
-kitchen trash bin sits in the lower cabinet next to the sink.
-recycling bin sits in the lower cabinet next to the fridge.
-dish washing sponge filled with soap must be left standing upright with the sponge at the top, otherwise all dish washing soap leaks out.
-garbage disposal switch is in the upper right corner of the cabinet underneath the sink (looks like a light-switch). Must run water while turning it on for a few seconds at a time, or will break.
-please turn on the fan timer (20-30 mins) every time when showering to minimize steam peeling off bathroom paint!!
-small hand-vacuum cleaner sits on the ledge in the basement hallway, for light picking up, for your convenience. Big vacuum cleaner is in the mechanical's room behind the basement bathroom, if needed.
-hairdryer in the cabinet underneath the basement bathroom sink.
-house key opens/locks both front and back (metal door). Please ensure both doors are locked at all times. Burglars constantly roam around the city. (The inside back wooden door, behind the metal door, remains unlocked all the time.)
Enjoy your stay! :)
