As for any and all other options- here’s a quick breakdown of those “necessary” to-do items to get ready for the holidays and any parties that are associated with it.
First things first – Do a “visitor” walk thru and just take notes of everything that you see that are out of place. This is a great time to give out these little tasks to any other people in the house if possible to get a little bit of help with this hectic time.
Depending on your time limit that you have, I recommend these are the things that you take care of 2-3 days beforehand.
–Clean windows and vacuum window tracks. Damp mop baseboards.
–Deep clean bathrooms and straighten bedrooms.
–Clean all top kitchen surfaces. Wipe fridge and make room for extra food in there.
–Dust all surfaces and sweep entryway.
DAY BEFORE OR DAY OF VISITING (IF POSSIBLE)
–Hang fresh hand towels, and check hand soap.
–Wipe any dirty areas in the bathrooms using a wet rag.
–Put toilet bowl cleaner in the toilets and give them a quick brushing.
–Wipe mirrors, countertops, and bathroom floors with a damp towel.
–Take out the garbage, and line trash receptacles with clean liners.
–Straighten stacks of magazines and books.
–Straighten and fluff sofa pillows and cushions.
–Carry a laundry basket throughout the house, picking up clutter as you go. Once filled, put everything in its place or you can just hide the basket. ☺
–Vacuum high-traffic areas.
–Place fresh flowers and light scented candles.
Now your home should look and smell great. This will take off the extra stress that can be associated with having visitors and/or family over to your home.
