12 Days Of Christmas Cleaning Tips From The Maids

Seventh Day of Christmas: Launder and press bed dressings for any overnight guests.  Leave clean towels in each guest bedroom and top with a holiday candy piece or two to make your guests feel pampered.

Eighth Day of Christmas: Move furniture, like small end tables and large potted plants, to a spare room to allow for extra chairs and sitting space around the tree for opening gifts. 

Ninth Day of Christmas: Dust all surfaces, including areas such as baseboards and windowsills.  Pay attention to collectibles and picture frames — items you'll want to "show off" to your holiday guests.

Tenth Day of Christmas: Be sure your bathrooms meet the white-glove test. Remove personal items from countertops and clean the toilet, sink and mirror to a sparkling shine. Use window cleaner on fixtures for extra gleam!

Eleventh Day of Christmas: Vacuum home from top to bottom, paying attention to areas such as the dining room, living room and kitchen, where people will gather the most.  Don't forget about your upholstery and hard-surface floors.  They collect dust and dirt too!

Twelfth Day of Christmas: As your last task, set and style the table. You will be glad this is complete before the holiday becomes hectic with cooking and preparing final details for your guests' arrivals.
