Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner For Your Large Family? Tips To Get Your House Clean


If you are hosting the Thanksgiving dinner this year for your large family, you need to make sure your home is clean. This will allow you to concentrate on the traditional food. You do not have to do a deep cleaning and likely do not have time to do that anyway. Below are some small things you can do so everyone can feel relaxed and comfortable.

Basic Cleaning

Do not worry about washing all of your windows and waxing your floors. Instead, simply vacuum only where your guests will be and mop the kitchen floor. Dust the rooms your family members will be in. If you have ceiling fans, check the blades for any dust.

If you have pets in your home and they get on your furniture, take steps to ensure all hair is removed. You can do this using the hose extension on your vacuum cleaner. You can also put on some rubber gloves and dampen them and then run the gloves over the furniture.

In the kitchen, remove everything from the counters and wipe them down. If you have not cleaned your refrigerator in some time, now would be a good time do to it. The microwave should also be cleaned.

Bathroom Cleaning

The main thing you need to clean is the bathroom, as everyone there will likely use it at some point. Scrub the toilet with ordinary toilet cleaner. If your toilet has calcium deposits in it, you can get these off. These deposits are due to the calcium and other minerals that are in your home's water supply. Because there is always water in your toilet it is easy for these calcium deposits to build up.

Purchase a cleaner made to remove calcium deposits and use this first. Follow the directions on the product to use it. If this does not work, you can use muriatic acid, which will remove the stains very well. This acid is dangerous to use however. If you choose this, open windows in the bathroom or run a fan in it. Wear rubber gloves and eye protection.

Fill up a large bucket with water and then slowly pour about a cup of the acid into the water. Slowly pour the water into the toilet and use your toilet brush to spread the acid over the entire bowl. Close the lid and wait for a couple of hours and you should have a clean bowl. Clean the toilet with regular toilet bowl cleaner to remove any leftover acid.

When you are finished, light a few candles to make your home smell good.

If you do not want to do any of this on your own and want a deeper clean, hire a maid cleaning service to come to your home a few days before the dinner to deep clean your home for you. For more information, contact local professionals like English Maids.
