Keeping the house clean and tidy during the festive season

During the run up to Christmas, most people have a lot more things in their home. You may have a huge Christmas tree taking up half your living room and tinsel draped all over your photo frames. It can be hard to keep your house as clean as tidy as even simple jobs such as hoovering the carpets is now harder than before.

If you have children, then you will probably find that Christmas day is a bit chaotic and that you end up with boxes everywhere. It is a good idea to give each child a box where they can store their sweets and chocolates and then either a box or a sack to put their presents back in. this mean that they still have easy access to them but that when you can to clean round it is easy to move them.

No one wants to be cleaning on Christmas day so try and make things as easy as possible in the run up. Keep on top of the washing and try and get the house clean before Christmas eve.

If you are having new furniture for Christmas such as a sofa, then try and ensure it arrives well in advance so you have time to get rid of the old one as this could take up a lot of room.
