If you are lucky enough to live at the Jersey Shore, you know how friends and family LOVE to visit during the summer. After spending a nice weekend at your house, you’re now faced with a very messy home! With the long Labor Day weekend on the horizon, you may want to start prepping soon.
Here are 5 simple ways to get your house back in order after the guests go home:
- START WITH A CLEAN HOME
If you’re a summer host, you should start with a clean home! Make sure the bathroom is cleaned with fresh linens and the guests’ rooms are tidy. The dishes must be done, the floors swept, and make sure your entire house smells good. Starting with a clean home helps in the aftermath cleaning process.
- CLEAN UP RIGHT AFTER THE GUESTS LEAVE
Devote some time to cleaning up right after your guests leave. If you use excuses to ignore the dishes or vacuuming what’s needed, it can possibly end up sitting there for a day or two or longer.
- SOAK THE DISHES THAT NEED SOAKING
Put the dishes in the sink as soon as you’re finished with them to let them soak. If you forget to do this when guests are over, don’t worry! Just simply soak the dishes before you get the rest of your cleaning done.
- THROW OUT & TAKE OUT ANY TRASH
After you get your dishes soaking, pick up any trash and throw it away. This should be a super-fast chore. If the trash has anything that will smell easily, you’ll want to bring the trash out instead of letting it sit inside all night. This part of the pick up is super quick and easy!
- WIPE DOWN ANY SURFACES
Once the trash clean up is taken care of, wipe down any surfaces that you used – kitchen table or island, coffee bar, stove, or countertop. This will get rid of any sticky spills or crumbs that could invite ants into your home. Consider sanitizing surfaces too. During the pandemic, better to be safe than sorry.
