Last week our cleaning tips focused on getting you prepared for the holidays. Now that Thanksgiving is over, we’re going to offer some advice that can help you prioritize your post-holiday cleanup process. Many people are guilty of keeping the leftovers in the fridge for way too long. Don’t let that be you! Here are five post-holiday cleaning tips.
Clean Your Fridge and Freezer
The storage space, coupled with your organizational skills, is pretty fantastic! It’s mind-blowing how much food you can stuff in a fridge or freezer. However, you don’t want to keep leftover food around for way too long. Clean out your fridge or freezer. The rule of thumb that you should keep in mind is that you shouldn’t have Thanksgiving food in your fridge in January.
Clean Your Carpet
During the holidays, mysterious food stains always pop up on carpets. From gravy to cranberry sauce, you don’t know what you may find! The next time you vacuum your floor, assess any stains that you didn’t see. Remember to be gingerly with your carpet. Scrubbing it way too hard can cause you to damage the fibers in your carpet.
Clean Out Your Oven
Whether it’s the holiday season or not, you should be cleaning out the oven. If you don’t, this can be a fire hazard. One shortcut that you can use is to use a steam cleaner. This technique ensures that you don’t have to do too much scrubbing. If you’re going to use baking soda to clean your oven, use it sparingly. The less you have to wipe up, the better.
Clean Your Dishwasher
It may seem ironic that a dishwasher can get dirty, but it can! It makes sense because you frequently load dirty dishes into your dishwasher, especially during the holidays! You can use ordinary or everyday household items to clean a dishwasher, such as a toothbrush (one that you don’t plan on using, of course!), a microfiber cloth, vinegar, and water.
Your Vacuum Needs Cleaning!
This cleaning tip is another ironic one. We use vacuums to clean dust and debris, making sense that the filter can pile up with a lot of dirt, dust, and undesirables. Clean out your vacuum’s filter so that it doesn’t get clogged and cause your vacuum to lose its suctioning power. If you need a new vacuum, ones with washable filters make life easier!
