Deep Cleaning Before the Holidays
By Connor R Sullivan

During the holidays there is a good possibility that you will have a lot of guests and relatives circulating throughout your home. After all of the holiday get-togethers and visits from Grandma your house may also be in need of some deep cleaning; before and after the group. Grout cleaning or tile cleaning will make sure that that deep clean throughout your house is done. There are also some great tricks that you can use to keep your house sparkling clean during the holidays. These little tricks will keep your house clean without having to scrub on your hands and knees after everyone leaves your home.

Something that people do not realize is that you do not have to clean your entire house at once. A little at a time gets the job done before you know it. A great thing to do a couple times a week to make sure that your house stays clean is to vacuum. Doing this twice a week will create a fresh scent in your home as well as less dust and dirt. Another great trick is window cleaning. If you can clean your windows once a week, that will let in more light and your house will seem cleaner to anyone inside. Another great thing you can do is dusting. If you have any wood furniture, chances are that it will eventually get dirty. Dusting can help get rid of and prevent dust from building up all over your furniture.

There are some other great little tricks that many people do not realize they can do to keep their house clean. A trick that has been passed down through the generations is making sure that all of the nooks and crannies around your home are clean. This means baseboards, light fixtures; light switches even door knobs and frames. Some great tools for these are just some soapy water, q-tips, and Paper towels. If there is built up dirt, stick residue or even dust this will help to remove it creating an essentially cleaner home. All of these little tricks create noticeable changes around your house for other people to notice.

Keeping a clean house can be difficult especially during the holidays when so many people are circulating throughout your home. Keeping a good smelling home does not have to be difficult though. Simply lighting a great smelling candle or lighting light incense can work wonders for the general atmosphere of your home. There has also been an old trick where women would take the skin off of an onion and boil it in a small pot of water. This apparently creates a great smell throughout the home. Although these are all great, nothing tops the smell of a great cookie just out of the oven. This will keep your guests coming back for more and more each holiday season.

Keeping a clean house is not easy, but with these different tricks it is a little more manageable. Remember that your house does not have to look like a Martha Stewart magazine, but it should be clean enough and functional enough for you.
