This year, make your home sparkle like Frosty The Snowman! We are here to give you five ways to make your home shine this Christmas.
Get Rid of the Clutter
The first step to having a sparkling home for Christmas is getting rid of all that extra clutter. The more cluttered your home is, the more stressful it will become on you during Christmas. You don't want to be stressing about cleaning up around the house as you prepare for your guests. So, before the holidays come around, take a day to clean up all that extra mess and get rid of it. Having less clutter will get you feeling more prepared for the guests that are to come.
Clean Your House from Top-to-Bottom
Christmas celebrations mean lots of people coming in and out of your home. This means that you really want to make sure everything is sparkling clean before the guests come into view. You should start off by cleaning all areas where there is heavy foot traffic, such as the living room, kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. Make sure these spaces look their best for when visitors enter. After you get done with all the heavy traffic areas, move onto other rooms in your house that may not be seen as much such as closets or storage spaces.
Clean Your Appliances and Furniture
Another thing to make sure is sparkling clean before guests come over for Christmas dinner are appliances and furniture. To do this, take a microfiber cloth and water to clean off any dirt or grime that may be on your appliances. Make sure you take the time to get into all of those hard-to-reach areas, like around knobs or handles so no one gets cut while they are visiting. If there is furniture in your home where people sit down, make sure it is wiped off and free of any stains or spills.
Tidy Up Your Floors
Sparkling clean floors are a definite must for Christmas time! You don't want people coming in from outside with dirty shoes, so make sure you get your flooring nice and clean before the guests arrive. Make this easy on yourself by sweeping up all dirt and dust that may be on your floor. Afterward, you want to mop up any water or wetness so it's safe for people walking around on bare feet.
Add Some Holiday Decorations
The holiday season is the perfect time of year for decorating! You can add some cheer and festivity to your home by adding simple decorations. Make sure you add a Christmas tree for the main focal point in your home. You can even go further and have some fun with decorating by adding other Christmas decorations such as garland, stockings, wreaths, candles, and lights around windows or on walls.
