7 Holiday Cleaning Tips

With the holidays approaching, now is the time to get your house clean and ready for the big events, as well as for those unexpected guests who just drop by…


Cleaning may not be the most fun part of the holidays, but having your house “guest-ready” ahead of time will definitely make your holidays more enjoyable.

As part of our campaign to Celebrate Everyday Messes with Bissell, today we are sharing cleaning tips that will help you get your house in order before the holiday rush.

In this video, Susan and I share seven cleaning tips to get your house ready for all your holiday fun.

7 Holiday Cleaning Tips

Tip 1 – Wash and Touch Up Your Walls

Our walls can often get forgotten in our regular cleaning routines. You will love how freshening up your walls gives your house that extra sparkle. You can wash your walls with a damp cloth and for tough marks, you may want to use some all-purpose cleaning spray.

Tip 2 – Get Your Light Fixtures Clean and Ready
