So it’s Christmas time - it’s all about the presents, delicious food and spending time with the family. Sounds perfect, right? Maybe for some...

But some of the minor things we tend to forget is polishing and wiping clean the house ready for Christmas day AND we always remember just before your lovely in-laws turn up. Got less than an hour before they turn up? Prepare yourself for the quickest cleaning of your life…

Recruit your cleaning crew

It doesn’t matter how useless members of your family are at cleaning because they know you’re the only one that really does the housework. You can delegate small tasks and jobs to others whilst you tackle the bigger and more difficult jobs. An extra pair of hands to clean, wipe and dust is 1 less job for you and 1 less grey hair.

Time: 10 minutes

Use newspapers for a steak-free shine

Got some old newspapers lying around? Quickly rip a few pages and squirt some cleaner (or vinegar does the trick too!) on to your glass windows and get rubbing. Super quick and easy and no smears! Or a window-cleaning wipe as a quick alternative.

Time: 10 minutes

Dust, Dust, Dust!

If you spy dust on your mantle piece, you don’t have time to think when the last time you dusted that, but it’s definitely time to get dusting. Wipe everything you think is going to get noticed (think where family photographs and ornaments are sitting) and all flat surfaces where dust is more likely to settle.

Time: 10 minutes

Use wipes to attack stains (tea/coffee rings and spillages etc)

Wipes are your new best friends this hour and if you happen to have a multi-purpose pack hidden in your cupboard - that’s even better. Attack those stains with all your might wherever they are, in the bathroom, kitchen, dining room and living room. If they’re slightly scented, they’ll also make your house smell fresh too - two jobs done in a flash.

Time: 15 minutes

Bring out the Hoover

If you have a mini hand-held Hoover then that will be better so you can just quickly clean up the areas that happen to be dirty but running the Hoover in each room doesn’t take very long. Focus more on the high traffic areas and leaving this job last will be better once you’ve already attacked the whole house with cleaning tools.

Time: 15 minutes

So with these quick 5 cleaning tips, you’ll have your house looking and smelling good enough for your in-laws. Let’s be honest, cooking a Christmas dinner is scary enough when you’re feeding other people but having your in-laws judge the standards of your house is scarier.

Ready, Set - GO!
