Holiday Cleaning Tips for a Merrier Christmas
There’s no time quite like the holidays. But with all the celebrations and festivities, the holidays are a time where smart cleaning matters. With slush, snow, salt, food scraps, wrapping paper, and gift packaging to contend with, it pays to be smart when it comes to cleaning during the holidays.
Here at Maid Right, we know that happy holidays start with a with a clean, well-organized home. Here are some of our top holiday cleaning tips to give you and your family a merrier Christmas this year.
Get Started Early
Last-minute shopping and last-minute cleaning both lead to scrambling and panic. So, break cleaning tasks down into manageable chunks and give yourself a head start. We suggest taking a full week to tackle pre-holiday cleaning projects. Start with a walk-through to make sure you have a full list of cleaning tasks on day one. Then go day-by-day, tackling deep-cleaning projects first and leaving light-cleaning projects for later.
Be Ready for Guests
If you’re hosting family and friends this Christmas, you’ll want to be ready for heavy foot traffic and post-meal clean-up. Ensure you’ve made room for slushy boots and winter coats, and that any melt-off from these items is contained. For dinner, make sure that your dishwasher is empty and ready for dishes as soon as Christmas dinner is finished. Consider double-bagging or triple-bagging any garbage cans for meal clean-up and prepare a soaking station for dishes.
Prepare for Presents
If you and your family share a lot of presents each Christmas, you know how quickly scraps of wrapping paper, ribbon, gift bags, and packaging can pile up. Be prepared on Christmas morning by having garbage bags or bins ready that these items can be quickly sorted into. At Maid Right, we like to keep things seasonal by using bags that come in festive colors or bins that we’ve dressed up for the occasion.
Go Easy on Yourself
No matter how many holiday cleaning tips you collect, cleaning is still time-consuming work. So, if you’re stretched for time this year, consider a professional clean from your local Maid Right.
