Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge – Days 17 + 18
I'm able to vacuum over spots on the carpet without really even noticing them. That is, until I'm vacuuming just before guests are expected. Then suddenly I realize I’ve got more scrubbing to do than time to do it! Does this ever happen to you? Today, let’s give our floors a deep cleaning.
I've decided my carpets are in need of more than my small shampooer can provide, so I'm arranging for a professional carpet cleaning. (This is a popular time of year, so it can be tricky to get this scheduled!) I'm foregoing the regular mop to spend some hands-and-knees time on the tile floors, and I will go the extra step to clean and polish the hard wood.
Day 18: Clean Baseboards
When it comes to cleaning the baseboards, I like to assign this task to my children. I think this is one of those chores that they are capable of doing a very good job on, plus they are just closer to the floor than I am anyway! I think I'll let them pick between a microfiber cloth or the electrostatic duster, and for added motivation we will crank up whatever music they choose. Now it's more like a party!
Speaking of parties, take a few minutes to celebrate everything you have accomplished so far in this 28-day challenge! Let us know what you are most happy to have checked off your list.
