Cleaning must-do’s before Christmas Day


The Government have announced new Tier 4 rules for certain parts of the country. This means that a lot of people will not be able to mix households with others. However, even if you are in Tier 2 or Tier 4, it is of the utmost importance that your home is the cleanest it can possibly be to reduce the risk of any harmful germs being spread. The Christmas Elf’s won’t be able to help you with this we’re afraid! So, it is down to you to ensure this is undertaken to protect your family.

Clean the Kitchen

Winter is the season when we spend a lot of time preparing meals, especially on over the Christmas period. This is why it’s a good idea to make a quick check and see if your kitchen is ready for some heavy duty Christmas cooking. Clean out the fridge and cupboards, and throw out old products. You can also rinse the dust from special cutlery, glasses, and dishes. Check the condition of your oven – if there are scorched cooktops, and burnt food, make sure to clean them. This way you will improve the work of this appliance and get better results when preparing the Christmas meal. If your oven hasn’t been cleaned in a while, it is probably easier to call a professional oven cleaning service.

Clean the Bathroom

Cleaning the bathroom is one of the things that you definitely don’t want to do during the holiday. Pour some heavy-duty cleaner into the toilet bowl and let it do its magic. Wipe the tiles with all-purpose cleaning product after you take a shower. The hot vapours will loosen the dirt, making it easier to make your bathroom shine. Wipe the mirrors with glass cleaner, or simply use rubbing alcohol, to remove all toothpaste splashes, fingerprints, and water rings from the surface. Finish with wiping round all hard surfaces with a disinfectant to ensure any germs or viruses are eliminated.

 Remove any Dust and Cobwebs

Christmas decorations usually stay until the beginning of the New Year, and sometimes – even a few days after. This is why it is wise to quickly dust around the house one more time, before putting everything together. The same applies for cobwebs on the ceilings and walls corners – with decorations being up around the house, lots of dust and cobwebs can form around these.

Clean the Windows

If you love decorating your windows for the holidays, you might want to wipe up the glass with rubbing alcohol one more time. It will be significantly more precise to spray snowflakes and easier to stick paper decorations on the glass when it’s clean. Once your decorations are up and on the windows, after a while these will need cleaning in between your decorations. Use a microfibre cloth with any window cleaning solution to ensure there are no marks or dust on them and your family may be able to see Father Christmas on his sleigh through nice clean windows!
