Keeping Clean After Christmas

We have talked about keeping your home clean during the holidays, but what happens when your home is a disaster after all of the festivities are over? With family and friends coming in and out, presents being opened, and wrapping paper is strewn about, and you have been busy hosting for a few weeks, you may notice your home has become cluttered and messy. Keeping up on being clean during the holidays does help, but it is still important to make sure your home gets back into shape even after the holidays are over so you can relax.

Here are some crucial tips to get your house in order:

Sort The Gifts

One of the main reasons your home might feel more cluttered than usual is because you may have received new gifts. It is important to start sorting those gifts out and putting them where they best fit. Sorting and organizing gifts can be done easily with the help of your family. Have everyone grab their gifts and sort them out, so you know which room to put them in. This simple step will clear up space in your house and make it easier for you to clean when the time comes.

Toss Out Leftovers

The holiday season may bring a lot of food into your home, and only one person can eat so much! Go through your refrigerator and make sure you are checking the dates of any leftovers that have accumulated over the past few weeks. That turkey from Thanksgiving sitting in the back of your fridge probably will not be put to use, so go ahead and toss that out! If you have too many leftovers and not enough time to eat them all, try dropping some off at a friend or family member’s house so they can enjoy it without it going to waste.

Wash All Linens

Doing laundry after guests leave is very important and will make your home feeling much cleaner for the next guests. Strip all of the bedding and wash all of the towels to get your cleaning project started. Once those are washing, you can move to a different area in your home that might require attention.

Disinfect Surfaces

This time of year brings many sicknesses, and it is crucial to wipe down and disinfect surfaces. Things like countertops, doorknobs, bathrooms, and appliances will definitely need proper cleaning to ensure that you are taking the necessary steps to keep your home germ free.

Vacuum and Clean Your Flooring

The one area in your home that may seem clean but isn’t is your flooring. After the holiday’s things like food and dirt may have stuck to your carpet without you knowing. Take the time to vacuum your carpets to pick up as much debris as possible, and mop the kitchen floors since the kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house.
