Rubbish/trash in Rome is collected from the big bins blotted on every street. It is the responsibility of each household to bag and carry their waste material to one of these street bins that are emptied each day.
Washing Machine - turn the dial to "Rapido" for an energy saving half hour wash at 30 degrees. 2 in 1 liquid provided goes in 1st compartment to left.
Please switch off the air-conditioning while not in the apartment, the 2 machines sufficiently cool down the apartment rapidly once turned on.
Please also occasionally check the 2 buckets on the balcony, if they are full of water from the air-conditioning discharge hoses please empty them.
No parties or events.
Please leave the fridge and freezer empty.
The Oven, grill and stovetop are gas.
You will find a green ignition lighter in the shape of a zucchini vegetable on the sink next to the oven. The ignition lighter requires no batteries or fuel
Each press of the handle creates lots of little electric sparks to light the gas, if you place the lighter at the original spark point and turn the dial to full the gas ignites straight away.
The markings are worn but it is still possible to make out which dials operate which stovetop burner.
From the left;
first dial = top left burner
Second dial = top right burner
Third dial = bottom left burner
Fourth dial = bottom right burner
The oven dial turns to the left and the number settings are still visable, at the bottom of the oven there is a little door to lift which will allow you to place the nose of the lighter at the oven gas point.
The grill dial is the same as the oven but turns to the right and only has one setting.
Please only smoke on the balcony.
