When you have guests visiting your apartments in Denver, you’ll want to be sure your apartment home is ready to welcome everyone. Whether your guests are only staying for supper or they are staying over, here are the best cleaning tips for the holiday season!
Clear Out the Refrigerator
You’ll want to free up as much space in your fridge as possible. You’ll need the space for your own dishes, and your guests will probably bring plates and platters with their own foods. This is a great time to clear out the fridge of anything that’s old, outdated or simply doesn’t need to be in the refrigerator. Give shelves and the door a good wipe down, too!
Clean the Oven and Microwave
The last thing you need when cooking for a holiday celebration is a kitchen full of smoke. Be sure to clean the floor of the oven of any spilled grease or other food debris. Wipe down the walls of the oven, too. Clean out the microwave so it’s sparkling and ready for any last minute heating-up needs.
Go through all of your household linens such as napkins, tablecloths and bed linens. If you haven’t used them for a while, they may have developed a musty odor. Launder anything that doesn’t smell fresh. Pull them out of the dryer as soon as they’re dry, so you don’t end up having to iron everything, too.
Stock Up on Towels and Dishcloths
After your holiday meal, guests may volunteer to help clean up. Be sure you have plenty of extra drying towels and dishcloths available for everyone so you can all work together to make cleanup fast and easy.
Vacuum a Few Days Ahead
Vacuuming can kick up airborne particles and dust. Don’t risk making your apartment home dusty just before guests arrive. Instead, vacuum a few days ahead of your party and then give the rooms a quick dusting the night before the celebration. This will ensure that surfaces are clean and ready to be used as serving areas.
Finally, don’t overwhelm yourself trying to get every spot spick and span. Remember, your guests are there to enjoy your company and celebrate the season. To find out for yourself how great it is to entertain in our Denver apartments, please contact us today!
