With November upon us, soon it will be Thanksgiving followed by the craziness of Christmas. If your house is where your family meets for the holidays, you have the fun task of not only cooking, but also cleaning. This year don’t wait until the last minute to clean, but space it out over a few days. This way the task won’t appear so huge and you won’t be rushing around at the last minute.
Day 1: Focus on a room that no one really enjoys cleaning, the bathroom! Get down and dirty and scrub everything. Add any special towels that you like to have out for the holidays. Also make sure that your air fresheners are refilled – this will give them enough time to make your bathroom smell nice and clean!
Day 2: Clean your living room, dining room, and any room that your guests will be in, except for your kitchen. Do all of your dusting, vacuuming, and straightening up! If you haven’t already, add any special holiday decorations you like to have out for your gatherings.
Day 3: Get down and dirty in your kitchen! If your guests will be assisting you in your kitchen, make sure it’s clean! Mop your floors, wipe down your counters, give your oven a good cleaning and scrub down your other appliances.
Day of the event: Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas or just a fun holiday gathering, the day is here! You probably have your day filled with cooking and baking but, thanks to this list, cleaning shouldn’t need to be on the list. You will want to make sure everything is straightened up, quickly wiped down, and that rooms are given a quick vacuuming. Here is where your significant other or children come into play. Give them the task of any quick straightening up, while you focus on the meal!
That is all it takes, three days to get your home straightened up before your big gathering! Utilizing an hour or two each day leading up to your dinner to focus on your cleaning will leave you less stressed the day of the event!
