Exceptional Wine Delivered to Your Apartment

Monday, January 31st, 2011

A good glass of wine is great for relaxing in your apartment at the end of the day. But then you have the rest of the bottle that you don’t want to waste and you really don’t want more than one glass.

Get box wine that is better than Franzia to enjoy in your apartment.

In California, a solution to this problem has arrived. It’s called the20. The product is boxed wine that is excellent and will stay good for longer than bottled wine. The wine will stay fresh for up to four weeks. You get wine cheaper (minus the cost of the cork and bottle) that stays tasty longer.

Since you live and rent here in Anaheim, CA, you can get a new box of wine delivered to your apartment each month. The creators of this product wanted to get handcrafted wine to more people without creating too much waste.

Does this change the way you think about boxed wine?

Tips for Dealing with Hard Water in Your Apartment

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

We know that our residents here at The Crossing Anaheim have been having some issues with hard water.

hard water

Princeton defines hard water as, “water that contains mineral salts (as calcium and magnesium ions) that limit the formation of lather with soap.”

One tip for your dishwasher is to run a half gallon of vinegar through your dishwasher a couple of times a year.

We offer Delta faucets here at our community. From their handbook, read below to find some tips to use in your own apartment.

How to rinse your kitchen faucet

  • To flush your faucet, remove the aerator and black sealing gasket above it.
  • Turn hot and cold faucet handle(s) to full on
    position(s) and flush lines for two minutes before
    turning off water.
  • Replace aerator with black sealing gasket above it.

When you’re cleaning your faucet, don’t use these items:

  • Industrial cleaners
  • Abrasive cleaners
  • Toilet bowl cleaners
  • Bleach-based cleaners
  • Polish
  • Ammonia solutions
  • Heavy-duty scrub sponges
  • Products containing hydrofluoric,
    hydrochloric and/or phosphoric
    acids and caustic agents

How to remove lime and mineral deposits

Place a cloth soaked in white vinegar over the deposits for several hours, then try the mild cleanser.

To clean the aerator:

  • Unscrew the aerator.
  • Remove it and the black sealing gasket above it.
  • Rinse the gasket in clean water.
  • Soak the aerator in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for several hours.
  • Flush the aerator with water.
  • Rub stubborn deposits with a toothbrush.

Hope these tips help you keep your faucets clean and working here at The Crossing Anaheim. If you have questions, let us know on Facebook, or stop by our office.

Volunteer for MLK Day – Help Your L.A. Community

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Monday, January 17, will be MLK day. This holiday is also known as a day of service. Have you helped out your community lately, either someone in our apartment, in Anaheim or nearby L.A.?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’”

One thing you can do for this federal holiday, if you are off work, is to attend a garden clean-up planned at the Crenshaw High School Garden in honor of the day. It’s happening from 8 a.m. through noon, and volunteers are welcome.

What will you do on MLK Day of Service?

When Is The Best Time to Do Yoga?

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Here at The Crossing Anaheim, we have an apartment yoga studio. Have you read our beginner’s guide to yoga yet? We think it’s helpful.

When is the best time for you to practice yoga?

yogaThe best time for yoga is in the morning after a shower and on an empty stomach. This isn’t always possible considering all the things we must do during the day. You can also practice yoga any time of the day, but try not to eat anything heavy 2 to 3 hours prior to your session.

If you can, you should try to do yoga every single day. You can take advantage of our yoga studio here in Anaheim, but really you can do yoga anywhere you want.

8 Tips for Using Less Energy in Your Apartment During Winter

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

The Crossing Anaheim supports green, eco-friendly living. We’re even gold level LEED certified.

To help our residents lead a more environmentally friendly apartment lifestyle, we’ve put together the following eight tips to help you use less energy and heat this winter.

  1. Keep your curtains and blinds open during the day and closed at night so that the sunlight will naturally warm your apartment.
  2. Place rugs on your floors. Also, using fabric on your walls can help too.
  3. Turn the heat down at bedtime and add more blankets to your bed.
  4. Always turn down the heat before you leave your apartment.
  5. draft stopper

    Use a draft stopper in your apartment.

    Drink warm drinks to keep you warm rather than turning up the heat. I love green tea because drinking it keeps you healthy too.

  6. Here at The Crossing, we offer ceiling fans in our apartments for rent. Reverse them so that continue to circulate air without making you cold during colder months.
  7. Do electricity-heavy activities (such as laundry or showering) before 7 a.m. and after 10 p.m. to reduce your energy requirements and costs.
  8. Buy a draft stopper for your door. This one is made by a seller on Etsy.

Hope you’re staying warm and green this winter in Anaheim.
