Gifts. Great food. Family time. We love the holiday season, but we know it can be a stressful time. From shopping for presents to cooking for guests, there are a lot of variables to consider and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Toss in hosting responsibilities with friends or family and the holiday season can be downright nerve-racking. But that doesn’t mean you should pull your hair out with anxiety if you agreed to entertain.
That’s why we wanted to share a helpful list of how to get your home ready for the holidays. We hope it helps you stay organized and on schedule. Take a look:
- Get rid of old food. That means looking in your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry for old or expired foods. Not only will this help declutter your kitchen, but it also gives you more space when you start to prepare those tasty treats.
- Wipe down surfaces. Before you take out the holiday décor, it’s a good idea to clean off your household surfaces. A clean home is essential to good health. A quick wipe down of your surfaces will make your space more cheerful and more hygienic for your guests.
- How are your pipes? No, we don’t mean your singing voice, though we’re sure it’s glorious. More people in your home means more water going down your drains: from the kitchen sink to the toilet. Is your sink clogged? Does your drain need to be cleaned? Green Gobbler’s Drain Clog Dissolver liquefies hair, paper and soap scum. It’s incredibly easy to use and works in sinks, tubs, and toilets to keep your pipes clean and drain flowing properly. We highly recommend using Green Gobbler Drain Clog Dissolver before your holiday visitors arrive. The best part is it's easy to find because it's available at The Home Depot.
- Stock up on essentials. With more people in your home, you’ll feel better prepared if you stock up on toilet paper, hand soap and other necessities. We highly recommend using Green Gobbler Vinegar & Orange Oil Cleaners in the kitchen to keep everything tidy. Uncle Steve might make a mess again…
- Don’t wait too long to decorate. You’ll be juggling so many things before your guests arrive, so it’s best to get a head start on some of the décor. That’ll make last-minute food prep that much easier if you’re not worried about where to hang the mistletoe.
