During the holidays, we know life can get hectic. Cleaning your home may not be your first priority. In fact, it may be better to not worry about it until the holidays have come and gone. If you are looking to get back into your regular cleaning routine, here are seven places in your home you should clean first.

Refrigerator

You will be amazed to see how much food can be stored inside your refrigerator and freezer. Now that the holidays are coming to an end, it is time to go through all of your containers and start fresh. Since so much was stored in your fridge and freezer, you never know what kind of mess you may have. This is a great time to clean top to bottom, inside and out.

Carpets

Things can get messy during the holidays. Sometimes you won’t know what needs serious cleaning until you take a moment to yourself and look. Carpets are bound to get stains during the holidays. If you find stains that look a few days old, don’t worry. A DIY carpet cleaner should do the trick. Your carpet will look brand new when you give it a nice cleaning.

Vacuum

There are some appliances we all forget to clean. Don’t let one of them be your vacuum!  Having a clean vacuum makes a huge difference in how well it cleans, which will make a difference in your home.

Oven

With all the cooking you did over the holidays, your oven is a great place to focus your cleaning on. If you aren’t sure how to clean your oven, no worries. All you need is some baking soda and water. In just an hour you can have a brand new oven!

Dishwasher

You probably wouldn’t think about cleaning inside your dishwasher since it is the thing that cleans your dishes. But it is a great thing to do if you are looking to get your appliances running like new again.

Bathroom

There is no doubt this is the least favorite spot to clean in the house. Your bathroom will need a nice wipe down after the holidays. Cleaning around the sink, toilet, and even walls will bring your entire bathroom back to life.
