Hosting Christmas should be fun, and if you want to take the stress out of cleaning the house ready for the season then you need to get online and find the right checklist to help you to clean everything properly. If you want to spruce up the entire house quickly, then completing a cleaning checklist is a good place to begin because it’s methodical. You can move room to room and know that you have got in every single corner because you can take everything off of a list.
Get rid of all the clutter.
We mentioned renting a dumpster earlier on, and if you plan to hire one over the Christmas season then it’s only beneficial to you to use it to get rid of all of the additional clutter you have in the house. Most people who choose to rent a dumpster over Christmas do so because they know there’s going to be lots of recycling and boxes and bags from the Christmas gifting that you’re going to have to deal with.
Get into the nooks and crannies.
It’s not about impressing other people, but it’s about using the time of year as an excuse to really get into those nooks and crannies and give them a proper clean. Most people overlook the important cleaning spots when they are preparing their homes for Christmas, and it includes things like ceiling lights and wall lights and fans and fittings. Start from the top of the walls and make your way down towards the light switches and windows. This way you can cover every single angle of the room.
Don’t forget that oven.
As the host it’s highly likely you will be doing a lot of cooking in your kitchen this Christmas season. So, use the time to get into your oven and clean it out properly. You can apply a thick layer of baking soda and warm water, leave it for 10 minutes and wipe it off using a damp cloth. It’s an excellent trick to use on grease!
