  1.  Do Bed & Breakfast require a liquor licence?   

    According to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR),

    Some small businesses are not required to have a liquor licence when supplying liquor. There are strict conditions regarding these exemptions. Minor businesses exempt from holding a liquor licence are not required to advise the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) of their intention to supply liquor.

    Bed and Breakfast

    To be eligible, the following conditions apply:
  • the bed and breakfast business must not provide temporary accommodation or dormitory accommodation for more than eight adults in the course of that business
  • must not supply more than 750ml of liquor in any one room per day
  • liquor is not supplied to a minor
  • the provider no longer needs to be a permanent resident under this exemption
  • the proprietor no longer needs to complete an approved Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) training program.

  1.  Why are my 50/50 sheets still wrinkled after being washed and dried?
  • Our Percale 50/50 sheets are made from a premium Poly-Cotton blend that requires minimum ironing after laundering.
  • Creasing and wrinkling will usually happen in the domestic machine more than a commercial one, because of its limited size and capacity.
  • Therefore, to launder our 50/50 sheets domestically, you will have to leave enough space for the sheets to flow and roll freely inside the tub.
  • Do not overload the washing machine or tumbler. Because if the washer or dryer is overloaded or stuffed full, the sheets could come out as a wrinkled ball.
  • Our 50/50 sheets are iron-free if applying the correct laundering procedure
