Countdown to Christmas…2 Days to Go.
Santa will be here soon and so will all your family and friends. It’s a joyous time but it always seems like your house ends up taking a beating. Try some defensive maneuvers to prepare your home for the busy days ahead.
Use Mats: Place absorbent doormats inside and outside al entranceways to limit the tracking of dirt and moisture through your house. Don’t forget about my dirty martini mat from Carpet One if you don’t already have mats. 25% of the proceeds goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
No Shoes Allowed: Keep a basket or decorative bin at key entranceways for all guest to toss their shoes into.
Wax Away: Use furniture polish or wax to keep spill from running all over your wood furniture. They’ll just bubble up so you can easily suck them up with a paper towel.
Dim Lights: Dim lights, draw curtains, and/or close blinds to keep guests from noticing the dust and dirt!
