Well, that’s a wrap (almost)! With just one more party to go – New Years Eve! – you’re probably just about ready to get things back to normal at home and yep, you guessed it, that means it’s time to clean up those holiday decorations and messes! Here are a few household tidying tips that can help you get things back to normal around the house:
- Keep Christmas lights from tangling for next year by wrapping them around empty cardboard tubes from your wrapping paper, or empty paper towel tubes. Loop the cord around the roll, beginning with the side opposite the plug, then insert the plug into the opening of the tube.
- Protect all of your ornaments by wrapping them safely before stowing in a tote or tub. Re-purpose used wrapping and tissue paper (if it hasn’t already been recycled) to add some extra cushioning between each layer.
Carpet and Furniture
- When it comes to stains in your carpet and furniture, the longer they set, the more difficult they’ll be to remove. Take a walk through the house and look in areas that had lots of traffic during your holiday parties and gatherings. With a spray bottle containing warm water and a bit of mild dish washing liquid, spray and blot any stains until the stain is removed. Then rinse with clear water and blot again. After the area of carpet or fabric has dried, check back to make sure the stain is completely gone.
- If you received some new gifts this Christmas that have replaced older items in your home, think about getting rid of or donating the old to make room for your new items. This can go for children’s toys too!
With a brand new year just around the corner, why not start fresh? We hope that these quick tips help you to tidy up after the holiday season has come to a close!
