Summertime is officially here, and homeowners throughout Maryland are gearing up for their annual family vacations. Coming home after a week or two at the beach can be bittersweet, but the experience is always better when your home is clean and inviting. Make the most of your vacation, and clean the following areas in your home before you leave!
Empty the Garbage Cans
The last thing you want is to open the door to a cloud of pungent garbage. Before you jet off for vacation, take the garbage out to the curb. Don’t forget about smaller trash cans and bins throughout your home.
Raid the Refrigerator
The week before your trip, eat or drink any items in your fridge that might spoil while you’re away. Incorporate these items into your nightly meals and weekly lunches. Preparing meals at home is a great way to avoid wasting food, and it can save you a little money for your vacation!
Fold the Laundry
Packing for vacation can be stressful, and it often requires doing a few loads of laundry the night before! Don’t forget to transfer wet clothes from the washing machine into the dryer. Fold the dry laundry as soon as you can to prevent wrinkles, and neatly put away the items you don’t plan to bring.
Wash the Dishes
A pile of dirty dishes isn’t just unsightly; it can also attract flies and pests into your kitchen. Ensure that the sink is empty, and run the dishwasher before you leave. It’s not necessary for you to empty the dishwasher, but doing so could make coming home even easier.
