How is it possible that Christmas is less than a week away? The fall holiday season has just flown by. Wasn’t it just Labor Day? So if you and your home are not quite ready for your holiday guests to arrive, now is the time to get down to business. Since the time crunch is real, here are five high impact areas to focus on as you’re cleaning.
The Guest Bathrooms
Almost every guest in your house will need to use the bathroom at some point during the party. If you don’t have the time for a deep clean, make sure that the essentials are taken care of. Wipe down the sink to remove any stray hairs and old toothpaste. Replace the towels and clean the dust and fingerprints off of any reflective surfaces. Finally, make sure there is fully stocked soap and toilet paper.
It’s the first impression when guests walk in, so take a few minutes to make the entryway sparkle. Get rid of any shoes, coats, and toys that are laying by the door. Put away mail. Sweep the outside steps. Finally consider some simple decorations, like a festive wreath.
Your refrigerator will see a lot of action over the holiday. Take the time to clean out the older items. This makes space for any dishes that your guests bring with them or any leftovers that they need to store till they leave. You should take the opportunity of the fridge being mostly empty to wipe down the shelves. Finally, vacuum out the condenser coil.
If any of your guests will stay overnight, you need to devote at least a bit of time to your guest rooms. If nothing else, make sure that the sheets are clean and the floor is vacuumed. If it has been a while since the room has been used, there could be a lot of dust built up.
Getting rid of clutter may seem like a small thing but it’ll have a big impact. Any miscellaneous stacks of whatever that you have laying around – old newspapers, unread magazines, mail – should be picked up and put somewhere. And when you’re short on time, this can be a simple as putting it all in a box and putting it out of sight somewhere. You can sort it and dispose of stuff after the party.
