With Thanksgiving fast approaching some easy cleaning tips can help you prepare for friends and family. There’s no doubt, preparing and serving a traditional Thanksgiving Day feast can be labor intensive, so a little preplanning and prep work can go a long way in helping you to enjoy the holiday with the least amount of hassle.
It’s a good idea to make sure you’ve cleaned your home prior to the big day. If you have your house up for sale, make sure you make use of this festive holiday to give your home a warm touch. It can be hard to keep up with everything, but a quick cleanup can make a big difference when your real estate agent brings prospective buyers through your home. Homeowners who want to sell during this season might feel that it’s almost impossible to keep up with everything; however, all it takes is a good plan and everything will fall into place.
It doesn’t take long to go through your home and sweep, vacuum or mop the floors. A quick dusting followed by removing smudges from TVs, windows and tabletops can make a huge difference. Of course, keeping things picked up and put away can be a challenge. Make sure you have a place to put mail, keys, and odds and ends so they don’t clutter tables or counters.
You’ll have plenty of work to do before and after your Thanksgiving Day meal, so leaving extra chores will just add to your workload. Make sure that you have table linens laundered and pressed. You can also bring out the china and flatware and make sure it is clean and ready to use. You might even want to consider the convenience and easy clean-up of using disposable pans, or even plates and utensils. Today, you can find great looking disposable items that look just like china or real silverware.
The best way to keep your home looking its best is to spend a few minutes every day taking care of the basics.
