Discover how you can maintain a tidy home and still enjoy yourself this holiday season.

One of the greatest aspects of owning a home is throwing elaborate dinner parties for family and friends. When the conversation is good and the wine is plentiful, the party can last well into the evening. Don’t let the sight of dirty dishes ruin your night. Discover how you can maintain a tidy home and still enjoy yourself this holiday season.

Clean Beforehand

Before the party, take the time to unload the dishwasher and clean the majority of the house. Not only will your house look incredible, but you will decrease the amount of work you have to do once your guests have left. You won’t want to open the dishwasher to find dirty forks and knives leftover from the night before!

Don’t Wait to Clear the Table

You don’t have to wait until all of your guests have left to start tidying up. As you walk through the house or move to another room, take an empty plate or glass with you. Allow the dishes to pile up orderly near the sink or in the dishwasher. Picking up plates and glasses is a good way to maintain a clean house, and it doesn’t take away from your enjoyment of the party.

Soak the Larger Pots

If you have large pots and pans filled with sticky residues like cheese or pasta sauce, stick them in the sink and soak them as soon as you can. Soaking your pots and pans will allow the process of cleaning them to be easier. Once you’re ready to do the dishes the grime will be removed easily!

Call for Help

The holiday season is a hectic time, and you won’t always have enough hours in the day to give your home the cleaning it deserves. Call a professional cleaning service, and allow them to tidy up your home the day after your party.
