For me, a sparkling clean home environment during holidays is one of the essential priorities together with delicious meals, guests and presents. Following a schedule is a reasonable way to boost our ability to combine all of the ordinary tasks with unique moments, surprises and festive mood. I suppose that nobody wants to worry about cleanliness and tidiness when it is time for celebrating. These topics hold our minds every day, but we need to leave enough time for family, friends, tradition during holidays.
How to keep the household and the entire home, prepare our personal space, and lent a specific atmosphere, avoiding routine’s shadow?
No matter what happens before or during a distinct occasion, remember to stay focused on family, loved people and pleasant shared time.
Consider how to escape the mess all around and to prevent from desperate clutter. Please, write down your list and follow it every day.
Prepare the decorative part of such special moments. Situate aromatic candles everywhere; the fire must be the main hero around faith and home warmth. Take care of the beauty, smell and brilliance indoors.
It is no need to let go of the idea of having a spotlessly clean home for the particular family time. Forget the stress and overwhelming, celebrate, expect great opportunities and feel the vital things. Now be calm and prepared – that sit. Flawless experience and perfectness are available only in our striving towards them, but that is real magic-to feel, breathe and love all of the life colours, sharing their beauty with family and friends. Each of us possesses a unique personality and ability to transform hard-working, thorough cleaning and tiring cooking into precious memories. The secret is the way you prepare, plan and think. Forget to be too much critical toward yourself or others. Just do the best possible, and everything will find its right place – during the holiday and after that, while you are coping with chore and challenges as a whole. That will last.
This time of year is concerned with efforts and diligence. When it comes to cleanliness, remember that regular maintenance will save you time and keep inner energy for unforgettable moments and meaningful things. Make a deep home purifying two weeks ahead.
Two days before holiday visitors to come in, speed clean your home, focusing only on the most critical tasks. It should take less time than you expect if you are organised and motivated enough, aiming to search for a little bit of support from your favourite people. Delegating home chores make us together. That is the central part of the preparation and celebration.
Pick up every unnecessary stuff and return them to the right places room by room. Dust surfaces with a damp cloth. Vacuum floors and carpeting. Take care of rugs and doormats too, polish wood furniture with a suitable product. Wipe down your windows with vinegar, warm water and several drops rubbing alcohol. Pay special attention to entrances, hallways and stairs. Make a rapid clean-up of the railings, handles, frames and pictures. You can use liquid soap and favourite essential oil in a small quantity of water to lend a pleasant scent to the festive home atmosphere.
If you notice spots on carpets, rugs or sofa, use only tested products. You shouldn’t have enough time to make any mixtures. But otherwise, it would be reasonable to keep such in you cleaning cupboard for the urgent occasions and spills during the holiday meals.
Prepare fluff pillows to make beds, scrub toilet and bowl, sinks, countertops and tiled walls. You may use wipes for fast results, mop kitchen surfaces, appliances and surrounding areas.
It is incredible to invite natural light in rooms. Impress your family and guests with a bright indoor environment. Can you imagine how much different your house can look when the curtains and blinds let light filter into entire space? Use mirrors to reflect the sun rays and to give the appearance of a larger area.
Sniff out bad smells and run away muggy air through washed surfaces and appliances, wide opened windows and lovely aromatic tricks. After a thorough purifying, I suppose that indoor air would be in a proper condition, but sometimes despite our efforts and hard-working, it would be possible to feel that something still requires special attention and clean care. Brew some coffee and allow the scent to spread all over the dwellings. Cut down the foul odours in the garbage bin, give it love and freshness through a paste of two tablespoons of baking soda, lemon peels and essential oils on the bottom.
Indeed the holiday season is a busy time. We need to plan, make lists with tasks and prepare for toasts. Small clean-up tricks during that period and little steps in home improvement ahead give additional value to the pleasant indoor environment. Cleanliness and cosiness without stress is the only way to spend a memorable feast together with favourite people.
