The Holidays are coming.
Is your house ready for family and friends to drop in?
The holidays are right around the corner. Do you feel daunted by the task of getting things organized before the house is full of family and friends? Are you wondering, how can you get the house ready as easily as possible?
Here are some tips and tricks to make life easier during this crazy, fun time.
The place most guests hang out seems to be the kitchen, so that is the place to give most of your attention too.
Get it cleaned top to bottom and get rid of old condiments and anything that is expired. That will give you room to store all the food and leftovers that you will have in the next couple of weeks. It will make you feel great if your guests open up the fridge and it is clean and smells good.
They will be very busy so make sure they are clean and ready to go.
If you have room, set aside a drawer just for that use for the holiday season. Wipe down all the counters and backsplash so they look great. I am a huge fan of E-Cloth for making cleaning the kitchen a breeze.
Floors and Furniture
This is a great place to put a wonderful smelling candle.
Fill some Kongs or other types of toys for your dogs. If they can’t be part of the fun, they will have their own special treat in their kennel or other area they may hang out in while you have guests in the house. Or if they are great at mingling, it will give them their own healthy treat to eat while everyone else is eating. I like to freeze several so I always have them on hand for a quick healthy treat that keeps them occupied.
If you clean just an area or two a day, cleaning the house won’t be quite so overwhelming, allowing you to relax, enjoy your guests, and know the house looks and smells great.
How to Remove Pet Odor From Your Car
Many of us pet-lovers delight in seeing a fluffy dog head poking out of a car window when we’re out on the road. Perhaps it’s even your pet’s cute face greeting fellow drivers! Regardless, we love to carry our pets along with us wherever we go, but this can present some pretty stinky problems.
You are asleep in bed when you hear that gagging, coughing noise that causes you to jump out of bed to try to get your dog or cat outside to safely vomit away from your carpet. But, you are just not fast enough and now you have vomit on the carpet or worse yet the bed, couch or any other surface.
