Our House Care & Cleaning Checklist for the Season
Christmas is one of the Caribbean’s most anticipated celebrations, bringing families and friends together at this joyous time of the year. But visiting family needs preparation. Let this checklist help you keep your Christmas spirits up and the messy piles down.
Pilot’s Christmas Cleaning Checklist
- Change and wash your bath mats, towels, and washcloths.
- Clean the toilet, sink, and shower.
- Scrub the grout between your tiles.
Tip: use a mix of baking soda and vinegar for a chemical-free abrasive.
- Ensure glass and mirrors are sparkling clean.
Tip: use teabags – the acid in them removes water spots easily and prevents streaks.
- Change and wash bed sheets, pillowcases and blankets.
- Clean all the air-conditioning filters.
- Swipe the ceilings with a feather duster or brush head of your vacuum to clear away cobwebs.
Tip: if your walls are freshly painted, try using a microfiber cloth on a stick.
- If you haven’t used anything that’s sitting around for the past year, box it or donate it to charity.
- Soak the filter for your vent hood in hot water and Borax to make it shine again.
- Clean inside of the oven as well as the stove top. Don’t forget to move the oven and get behind it!
- Wash your kitchen curtains.
- Clean your whole refrigerator. Wash the shelves, drawers, and other removable parts of your fridge and freezer as if they’re dishes.
- Clean the air with a simple solution. Sometimes, no matter how clean our kitchens are, they just don’t smell clean. That’s when we turn to our old friend vinegar. Simmering some on the stove helps to clear the air and return it to a more neutral smell.
- Wipe down all large and small appliances.
- Wipe down kitchen cabinets and change any contact paper that’s lined your drawers.
Throughout the House
- Remove unneeded clutter and donate or store it out of sight.
- Dust all surfaces, including bookshelves, photo frames, and art. Don’t forget the ceiling fans!
- Fluff sofa cushions and pillows.
- Straighten stacks of magazines and books.
- Vacuum high-traffic areas at least 2 days before your guests arrive.
- Decorate with special touches, such as flowers or candles.
