    With two dogs and a cat, we really need this! My holiday cleaning tip is to clean really well before company comes over so they think my house always looks like that!

    Don’t procrastinate and wait until the day before company is company to start cleaning. Star a lit and tackle the big jobs a week before & do a little from your list each day! You don’t want to get too overwhelmed before everyone comes over!

    Nothing is more uninviting that an odor of unknown origin:) Smell out any odors. Zap your kitchen sponge to kill bacteria. Wash bath towels with baking soda to get them fresh for guests. Light candles or wax burners. Spay the inside of trash cans with Lysol before changing the bags. Spray carpets, furniture and curtains with fabreeze. Throw cut up lemon or lime in your garbage disposal and run it for a few mins. Clean out the fridge and place a open box of baking soda inside to catch any food odors. Clean carpets! 🙂

    I divide my cleaning tasks into doable segments over a week that way I am not overwhemed on one day and all I may need is some last-minute touch-ups before my guests arrive! I also make a point to clean my carpets and furniture to remove any dirt, stains and hidden odors I may not notice.I use a HEPA air purifier as well so my house stays fresh.

    As much as I vaccum the carpet, I always treat myself to professional carpet and furniture cleaning one time per year. Be sure to call way in advance to set the appointment if you want it done near the holidays at the carpet cleaning companies are in high demand this time of year.

    I take one room at a time and go top to bottom. Love holiday cleaning because I always find treasures under couches and chairs that normally don’t get moved during during regular cleaning!!!! ?

    I need this! I have a little yorkie who likes to pee in the house and a boxer who then likes to cover it up. Very frustrating! I use a lot a pet stain remover spray. I let it sit for about 5 minutes then scrub, but never feel the carpet is clean enough! Sick of spraying and scrubbing!

    My most favorite holiday cleaning tip is to give the task of cleaning to my husband!?
    Just kidding (well… Sort of)… During the holidays, I like burning cinnamon scented candles. It freshens the air and the smell of cinnamon makes our house feel Christmas-y!

    Try and keep up on the straightening during the activities.. Don’t look obsessed about it. A little here and there will help.

    I try to clean a little each day.

    De-clutter before getting the decorations out! This will not only make your festive pieces more noticeable, but make cleaning easier. Don’t forget to light you favorite pine/pumpkin/peppermint candle. Before your guests see your beautifully clean house, they will be welcomed by the inviting scent.
    Happy holidays!

    My favorite cleaning tip is to double sheet the toddler bed. When I am done washing Aiden’s sheets I put a fitted sheet on his mattress like normal, but then I flip the mattress and put a fitted sheet on the OTHER side as well. This way if there is a midnight accident I can just take off the wet sheet and flip the bed! No fumbling around for a sheet! 🙂 mattandbranson @ gmail.com
