Day five: don’t forget about dusting and sweeping
If you want to make your life easier when it comes to cleaning, home experts recommend dusting and sweeping regularly. However, you have to focus more on dusting and sweeping your house before your guests arrive.
So, here’s what you have to do: sweep the entryway properly and decorate it with beautiful touches, dust all surfaces, including book shelves, wall art, or even ceiling fans, and most importantly: clean the kitchen sink and dinner table.
Day six: make sure everything is clean
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so you have to make sure that everything is clean, including your trash cans, towels, toilet and laundry basket. So, in other words, you have to wipe down any dirty areas of your house that you use regularly, such as your sinks, shower, bathtub, toilet, laundry, dishes and bed linen.
Your guests can be disturbed and feel uncomfortable if your house is not clean properly. In fact, there are people who associate a dirty house with poor cooking and they don’t even want to eat because of this.
Day seven: focus on the front entrance
According to cleaning experts, many people forget about their front entrance when it comes to holiday cleaning and this is one of the most common mistakes. That being said, whether you live in a house or an apartment, it is always essential to make sure that your front entrance is properly cleaned.
Don’t forget that giving your guests a welcoming first impression is crucial and can have a major impact on their state of mind. In fact, all you have to do is to sweep the front steps (or in front of your door if you live in an apartment), choose a cute door mat or clean the existing one, wash your front door glass (or the door per se), mop the front door area and use a nice garland to beautify your door.
