Things to Clean Before Your Holiday Guests Arrive
It’s that time again, and your holiday guests are just around the corner. We know you can’t wait to entertain, but just ensure these small, tedious tasks that we are about to explain are taken care of prior. At times, we get distracted and focus primarily on the bigger things, such as a clean bathroom a perfect guest bedroom, and the small things slip through the cracks. We have compiled a small, but effective check list to ensure your guests have nothing negative to chat about. Get cleaning!
Bacteria is everywhere, especially our bathrooms, and we often neglect to clean the sink faucets. Don’t worry! Simply get an old toothbrush and attack the sink fixture. This simple task takes minutes.
- Soap Dishes
Sometimes it is the smallest accessories that go unnoticed. Soap dishes can have gooey leftovers that no one wants to come in contact with. Before your guest arrive, simply wipe down your soap dish or put out a new soap dispenser to keep your guests from using your cute soap bar.
- Shower Curtains
We know your bathroom is Clorox-clean, but what about the shower curtain? Shower curtains are avoided most when cleaning, but there is no reason for that. While washing towels, throw in your shower curtain and lay it out to dry when done. You never want to be that person with the mildew. Right?
Is your guest bedroom ready to entertain friends and family? We’re sure the throw blanket is perfect and there’s a new candle on the dresser, but how about the pillows? In order to impress your guests, take the guest pillows for a nice little swim in the washer. Don’t go and spend money on new pillows when you can just wash the old ones.
As your holiday guests walk in, the first thing they see is the doormat. The doormat, along with other outside, visuals are important. Doormats are inexpensive and add a pop of color to your walkway while keeping all the outside dirt outside.
Sometimes it’s the smaller things that go unnoticed (we notice). Work on these five easy tasks and wow your holiday guests with a perfectly clean house.
