Cleaning for Christmas

When you put up your decorations it is an ideal time to give your home a clean and get prepared for the festive season.

If you are anything like me then you need to make space for the Christmas Tree and this means moving around the furniture, so I always take the opportunity to clean at the same time.

The last thing you want is to be chaos cleaning before guests arrive or on Christmas Eve!

Cleaning Jobs to do in December 

As we are moving furniture I always make sure that I clean the skirting board - my top tip is to use a tumble dryer sheet as all the dust clings to it and it leaves the skirting lovely and clean and also less likely to attract dust.

I try and focus on the areas of my home that guests will see and also on the things that we use at Christmas.  So if you have a special dinner service then make sure you give it a clean.

As I also have Christmas cushion covers I take the chance to launder all the cushion covers that we use the rest of the year.  The same with any linens.

As I know I will be filling the fridge and freezer with lots of lovely grub, I try to defrost and clean them all and take an inventory of what we have at the beginning of December.

I like to have a nice clean oven for the festive season too.

Clean the glasses - during the year we seem to use the same 4 glasses, but as we often have visitors I clean the glasses in the run-up.  Nothing like going to pour a drink and finding a grubby glass.

Clear the clutter - I try and make sure that I get the boys to clear out their old toys early December to make room for any new ones that they get bought for Christmas.

Do you have a cleaning routine for Christmas?
