The Festive season is fast approaching and that means we’ll be opening our doors to many family and friends over the next few weeks!
But you know what ruins our chill and Holiday spirit? …a messy house.
So I wanted to share some tips to get your home clean and ready for the holidays.
Walk through your home with a visitor’s eye.
Make notes of any imperfections and make a detailed list of everything that needs to get done.
Gather family members, and assign chores that work best for everyone, depending on age and ability.
Put your focus on the main areas in your home that guests will be seeing like the front porch, entryway, and living room. While you’re looking at the small details, check your light fixtures.
Ready Your Kitchen. People tend to gather around the food during the holidays, so make sure your kitchen looks and smells nice.
If you have festive china, crystal, and nice flatware that only comes out for big celebratory meals, find a weekend before stress sets in to take your pieces off the shelves and give them a gentle, thorough cleaning by hand so they’re ready to go.
Give the bathroom and the toilet a good thorough cleaning, make sure the entire bathroom is squeaky clean. Be sure they have plenty of clean towels, toiletries, to make them feel right at home.
When you have finished cleaning, look for the time to decorate your house. Make sure you do not overstate it because too many decorations can make your house look like it has not been cleaned for years.
