When cleaning the entire house for Christmas, start by spraying down kitchen and bathroom sinks, tubs, stovetop, microwave, toilets and countertops with a disinfectant cleaner at the start of your cleaning efforts.
It is tempting for most of us to clean one room at a time so we can put a check in the spaces in our mental checklist. However, you will clean faster by tackling a single chore throughout the entire house.
Once you have decluttered the house, you should start cleaning your house from the top down. Clean your fan blades first, then tackle the cobwebs in the corners, dust the furniture and then tackle the floors.
There are a few instances when you can multitask to speed up the cleaning process. For example, I get out all those serving dishes I will need but haven’t used since last Christmas and run them through the dishwasher while baking cookies or preparing dishes.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to do all the Christmas cleaning yourself. Christmas is an exciting time for the entire family, so get them involved in the Christmas clean up.
