Top Cleaning Checklist for the Holidays

Tis the season, right? We all have family coming and excitement growing. So let’s get started with the wonderful list, the top 10 cleaning checklist. The most important part to this is to get it done, don’t procrastinate! Ugh, I hate that feeling, don’t you? You wait and just procrastinate until the last minute, and then you’re losing your mind. Not fun.

Declutter first, that is always helpful! Nothing wastes more of your time than moving a purse, jacket, or piles of mail from room to room while you’re doing your cleaning. Start your cleaning by putting everything away in its specific place and everything will go much faster.

  1. Kitchen: Since we’ve already decluttered the house this should be pretty simple, tedious yes but simple!

Wipe/Vacuum cupboards and drawers

Wash out refridgerator and throw out anything old.
