To help you maintain a clean and organised house during and after Christmas it’s a good idea to have a cleaning checklist which includes pre-Christmas cleaning tasks, daily cleaning tasks and post-Christmas cleaning tasks.
Christmas has its positive side – spending time with your loved ones, sharing traditional meals and enjoying the festive atmosphere. It also has a negative side – tackling dirty dishes, crumbs and spills. Don’t let these chores keep you from enjoying Christmas and follow our tips on dealing with hosting family meal party and having guests around.
