Cleaning Tips for Holiday Season
Cleaning Tips for Holiday Season
December is a month of bliss! We attend several Christmas parties, hold gatherings at home, and go shopping for Christmas sales! But it’s also a month on non-stop cleaning for the Indonesian maid or Filipino maid in Singapore because in this season, we are always in a rush and the cleaning and cooking tasks just multiply.
During these holidays, Eden Grace Maids Agency is still here to help the live-in maid overcome the challenges of this Christmas season! We like to help her keep up in this busy times.
Here are some cleaning tips she may find helpful:
Keep cleaning supplies near and ready
We’re not sure how much visit surprises we will have this month, but we’re sure we will have to clean up extra every day. When the close relatives visit the apartment all of a sudden, remind the live-in maid in Singapore to be handy and ready, keeping the cleaning supplies close to her as much as possible. This way, it would only take a minute or two to clean up the after-party mess!
Check the refrigerator always
Christmas is definitely a season of sumptuous and delicious meals. We go marketing with our live-in maid in Singapore and we keep our fridge stored with the freshest ingredients. However, we might also want to check the state of the fridge from time to time because the food we may be keeping there has caused a mildew outbreak and the live-in maid didn’t even know. When we cook, the Indo maid or Filipino maid must make sure that all are clean and ready for us to have a safe meal.
Wash the dishes as soon as possible
Yes, it’s quite exhausting to wash everything up since there will be guests eating and coming from time to time. However, washing the dishes and emptying the sink as soon as possible, lessens the cleaning job by 30% and prevents bacteria from growing on the dishes. Encourage the live-in maid to diligently clean up after the family has done taking dinner!
Pay more attention to the entrance
The entryway is obviously the first part of the house the people will notice. Putting the Christmas tree in the entrance and frosting the windows with some Christmas light will make a good impression and set the mood. Most of all, the live-in maid in Singapore must see to it that the entryway is in its cleanest state, spotless and has no clutter. The Indo maid or Filipino maid must also sweep or vacuum the walkway, keep it cobweb-free, and shake the rug as frequent as possible. She may also think of ways to manage the pair of shoes and slippers left untidily on the shoe rack.
Double check the always forgotten areas
There are places inside the house we always forget to clean up. This may include the base of the toilet, the back of the door, the baseboard. While we know that these are areas the guests would less likely go to, mopping and scrubbing these areas will brighten up the place if we pay some attention to it. Make sure to remind the Indo maid or Filipino maid about these places!
Clean as You Cook
The live-in maid must see to it that the kitchen is clean before she serves the newly cooked dish. The pots and pans are scrubbed and hung dried and the chopping boards and knives are washed. This lessen the work load after the meal and set a momentum for more cleaning later.
We hope the live-in maid learned something from this article! Eden Grace wishes you a happy Christmas season ahead.
