Christmas Cleaning Checklist 2022

Introduce yourself to your brand-new timetable and housekeeping checklist for the holidays. Whether you’re getting ready for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or another holiday, we’ve given you a month to complete the most typical cleaning jobs on your list.

Additional Cleaning Tips

  • Avoid Putting Things Off. Start as soon as possible to avoid starting too late. If you put off cleaning until the very minute before the holidays, you may be in a rush to get everything done.
  • There Is a Place for Everything. Get rid of any extra items lying about, like shoes, newspapers, and other random stuff. There should be a designated spot for everything, and everything should be in its place. You can save time by picking up junk before cleaning. Put it back where it came from if it’s not where it should be.
  • Concentrate on the High Traffic Areas. Cleaning your entire house is the mission, but pay special attention to the living room, kitchen, and other areas where people are likely to gather. The focus of your Christmas cleaning should be these areas.
  • Deal with each room separately. In the big picture, holiday cleaning seems stressful. But the tiresome chore becomes less tense if you work on a single room at a time.
