Christmas is just around the corner! These parties are usually special days because we usually get together with family and friends, we celebrate company meals, and a lot of special moments such as gifts and grapes on New Year’s Eve. If this year you are going to organize a gathering at home, from La Mar de Net we give you some tips to help you clean up for Christmas meals.
Crockery and Utensils
If you are one of those people who have special tableware that is used in important situations, your time has come. It is important to disinfect the different pieces of crockery well since it is where we are going to serve the food to our guests.
If you have a dishwasher, we recommend that you wash at a temperature above 60 degrees. If not, no problem, the pieces can be washed with hot water, soap and white vinegar.
We must make sure that the tablecloth that we want to use for the Christmas meal is clean a few days in advance. It will not hurt that before the celebration we wash the tablecloth and leave it ironed to have it spotless when we serve the table.
The kitchen is a room where some of the guests are usually chatting and drinking the moments before the meal, while we are finishing preparing the menu, it is one of the most important rooms in relation to cleanliness during Christmas meals.
Both to avoid stress and to make it look healthy in the eyes of the guests, the ideal thing would be to clean the countertop well, scrub the dishes and pots that we have used during cooking, keeping them in their place. Thus, we will be calmer of not seeing many accumulated junk pending cleaning and also we will make a good impression in front of the guests.
General review of the rooms where we are going to be
It is not necessary that we do a thorough cleaning of all the rooms in the house, we will already have enough work to do with the rest of the tasks that we have mentioned and with the organization of the food / menu itself.
Therefore, we can carry out a general cleaning of the rooms where our guests are going to access, which, in general, apart from the kitchen that we have already mentioned, will be in the living-dining room and the bathroom. So, in the living-dining room we will dust the furniture and decorative objects, we will vacuum and scrub the floor so that it is clean from the same day, thus giving a fresh clean smell.
In the bathroom we can pass a disinfectant product through the sink and the toilet, we will clean the mirror and in case of having a bidet and shower screen we can also give them a touch so that they are correct. Finally, vacuum and scrub the floor so that, as we mentioned, it is freshly clean and with a good aroma.
Don’t stress about cleaning up Christmas meals if you’re celebrating at home. The important thing is to spend a happy day with your loved ones and as we have explained, with these simple steps you will be able to enjoy more than proper cleaning during Christmas meals.
