Good old British Gas is leaping to the rescue for all us Brits that spend our precious time worrying ourselves to death about whether we’ve left our straighteners and curlers on.
I don’t know about you, but I have had many a heart stopping panic about whether I have left my straighteners burning into the carpet and have even held and breath and crossed my fingers as I’ve turned the corner to my street in dread of fire engines and smoking embers!
And I have been very very lucky because I have left them turned on, and on quite a few occasions too! I never learn! And as I am sure you know, I am not alone.
Read on to win these…
Win These Cloud Nine Hair Straighteners
Research has revealed that 30 million of us suffer from the same ‘appliance anxiety’. Apparently we spend as much as 80 minutes a week worrying about whether we have left the iron, the boiler or the hair stylers on, which actually amounts to a shocking 8 months of our lives just WORRYING! Hideous!!
And that’s without going into the amount of money we waste leaving these appliances switched on. It’s millions by the way.
So in response to this, the next generation smart meter from British Gas has been developed which has a traffic light system that indicates when appliances are switched on. Technology is also being worked on to allow customers to remotely control their central heating and household appliances using smart phones. Yay!
So if you are out, and you start to worry, you can check it and fix it before you can say “Oh god I think I’ve left the bleeping straighteners on! PHEWPH!
And to celebrate these super clever developments, I have a pair of Cloud Nine Hair Straighteners to give away to one lucky ReallyRee reader.
