Top Tips for Clearing the Decks in January

The post-Christmas tidy-up often involves as much work as a proper spring clean, which means it’s not the most exciting of jobs to look forward to! But by breaking the job down into easy, manageable tasks you can have your house back in order in no time at all.


Start with the decorations 
First things first – if you haven’t already done it, take the tree down and pack the decorations away carefully. It is often tempting to throw everything into a box and forget about it until next year, but you won’t thank yourself for that when you have to spend 4 hours detangling baubles and fairy lights in a few months’ time. Take your time and pack everything up neatly in its own box. 

Head to the guest room 
The chances are that you will have had a relative or two to stay over the Christmas period, so the next job is to strip the beds and wash any used towels. Hoover the room, give it a quick dust and when the bedding is clean, put the sheets back on again. 

Deal with the lounge 
Sure, you may be doing a deep spring clean in a month or two, but why not make that job a bit easier by cleaning under the sofa and behind the bookcase now? There’s likely to be bits of tinsel, melted chocolates and waylaid toys lurking underneath and behind furniture, so get the hoover out and move everything into the middle of the room so that you can get behind it.


Deep clean the kitchen 
The kitchen will have taken quite a beating over the festive period, so now is a great time to give it some attention. Wash the cupboard doors, clean out the oven, remove out of date food from the fridge and clean the inside, sort out pans and put anything that you don’t use regularly into storage.
