The holidays are a time to bring family and friends together. It’s an excuse to invite the ones we love over to our homes to eat, drink, and be merry. In the midst of shopping and holiday planning, friends and family may stop by our homes to visit unannounced. You haven’t had time to wash the dishes or fluff the pillows but fret not — you can still clean the kitchen in a flash. Maybe it’s Santa’s Little Helpers, maybe it’s Misty Clean!
Start with the Sink
The sink is one of the focal points of your kitchen, so keep it clean, sparkling, and empty of any dishes or trash. Make sure that your garbage disposal is not letting off any unpleasant odors that your guests might notice as they enter your kitchen. Wipe down your sink and load the dishwasher with any of the dishes that were left behind.
Clean the Stove and Counters
Once the sink is looking better, start in on the stove top and counters, as these are the other places guests will notice when they enter your kitchen. Wipe down the stove top, removing any grease or leftover food. Wipe down counters and make sure that they are sparkling. If you have the time, setting out a cookie jar or a fun holiday décor item can make it seem like you spent much more time cleaning up and decorating than you actually did.
Clean the Floors
The floors are the next order of business. Use a dust cloth to get up any loose material on the floor. Follow up with a broom and a vacuum. If you have the time, take it to mop up the floors and have them looking sparkling new.
