Oh, how time flies! The holiday season kicked off with Thanksgiving and is quickly rolling with back-to-back Christmas and New Year celebrations. As you usher in the busiest time of the year, we bet you probably have more than a dozen things to tick off on your to-do list. There’s the annual office party, year-end school events for your children, shopping for presents, and the list could go on and on. 

But wait, what about cleaning? You’ve probably been avoiding, nay dreading, the thought of Christmas cleaning. But, unfortunately, there’s no escaping it, and procrastinating wouldn’t save you either. Luckily, BetterCleans is here. We’ve compiled the best Christmas cleaning tips from our professional home cleaners in Milwaukee to help make your holiday preps as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Let’s delve right in!

Start With a Clean Slate

The yuletide season can be overwhelming because you’ve got a lot to deal with, so know there’s no shame in outsourcing household chores to local house cleaners who can do it efficiently. Book a professional deep cleaning service at least two weeks before Christmas, so you can:

  • Focus more on the fun – You can devote your thoughts and energy to the more important stuff, like planning your Christmas dinner menu, picking up family from the airport, finishing last-minute deadlines at work, doing Christmas shopping, or enjoying exciting seasonal activities with your loved ones.  
  • Decorate for the holidays sans the dirt and dust – After decluttering and booking a professional cleaning service, your space will be sparkling clean. That makes it easier to feel inspired and creative to deck the halls with garlands and wreaths and glam up the Christmas tree. 
  • Unleash your inner kitchen whiz – Imagine prepping ingredients, cooking, baking, and setting up a feast for family and friends in a freshly cleaned, immaculate kitchen. You wouldn’t feel as exhausted and frustrated and still have all the motivation to create mouthwatering dishes to impress your guests.

Clean Your Pantry, Fridge, and Freezer 

Declutter food storage to make room for specific pantry items and fresh ingredients to whip up dishes for Christmas and New Year’s Eve feasts and the likely leftovers. Deep cleaning your fridge and pantry regularly also ensures it works properly and minimizes the risk of spreading harmful bacteria, and preventing your home from stinking from bad odor from expired or spoiled food items.

Deep Clean Your Oven

Will you be roasting turkey, ham, chicken, or vegetables or baking pies, cakes, or cupcakes for dessert? Trust us; they’ll taste better after deep cleaning your oven. Here’s how.

  • Mix baking soda and vinegar to create an eco-friendly cleaning paste. 
  • Apply it on the inside parts of your oven, focusing on those covered with grease and gunk. Let it sit overnight.
  • Meanwhile, hand wash the oven racks with dish soap and warm water. 
  • After waiting, lift hardened food buildup from surfaces with a plastic spatula.
  • Spray some water and vinegar on the areas with the cleaning paste to activate. Wipe with a damp dishcloth. 
  • Rinse the dishcloth and wipe until there’s no more baking soda residue.
  • Put your oven racks back and keep the door open for a few minutes to air dry the insides.
