Undoubtedly you’ll want your home to look its best for visiting guests during the holidays. Here’s a few cleaning suggestions to minimize the time you have to spend making things sparkle.
8 Suggestions for Swift Cleaning Before Guests Arrive
1. Grout and tight corners
Cleaning nooks and crannies doesn’t require hard work. A toothbrush is far more effective.
2. Showerhead residue
Fill a plastic bag with vinegar, tie it around the head and leave it overnight to dissolve mineral deposits. A vinegar-soaked rag held in place by a rubber band works, too.
3. Microwave build-up
Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into a small bowl of water and microwave for approximately five minutes. The lemon scent eliminates old food smells and condensation from the lemon water loosens caked-on grime, making it much easier to clean.
4. Garage floor
Don’t bother sweeping â€” a leaf blower is much quicker.
5. Pet hair on furniture
Wet rubber dishwashing gloves are magnets for pet hair. Put on a pair, rub your furniture, and leave the vacuum extension tool in the closet.
6. Ceiling fan
To prevent a shower of dust and dead bugs, utilize an old pillowcase to clean the fan one blade at a time. Slide the case over the blade and pull it back slowly and the case will capture the dirt.
Dump a spoonful of Tang into the bowl and let it sit for a couple of minutes. The citric acid scrubs which means you don’t have to.
8. Garbage disposal
Run baking soda and lemon juice, or ice cubes and lemon peels, through your garbage disposal to get rid of odors. White vinegar will do the same for your dishwasher.
