Cleaning for the Holiday's

I've been busy, busy, busy cleaning up my house. I started my holiday cleaning. I started with my front closet. I donated or threw away two big garbage bags full of clothes and junk. The guest room is all clean and ready for Rebecca's visit. My next stop is my boy's room! I have worked my way around the whole down stair of our house. The basement will be next! I'll make sure I take some before and after pictures.

This is the guest room. All neat and clean and ready for our daughter's visit.This is my front closet that I spent all evening on.

This is the front view of my closet.
This is my living room. My husband moved all the furniture for me last night so I could wipe down all the windows and clean under everything. I then took the shop vac and went around baseboard and was able to get all the little things hiding in the cracks.

This is my Kitchen; The colors from the seventies but I love the size of the kitchen. I've been working hard to clean my floors and bookshelves. This is the rest of my kitchen. I'll show you a picture of the dining room when I get my carpet cleaned next week.

I wish I had a kitchen that big. Mine is tiny and only one person can work in it at a time. Take it easy on that cleaning now.

I'm so proud of you - great job! I have several closets in desperate need of decluttering. Maybe I'll be inspired enough by your example to get to work!

It's so welcoming and squeaky clean-looking. Good job, Lori! (I'll be right over.) :~D

You are inspiring me to get busy cleaning my house. It's got to be done and I just keep putting it off or not having the time!

Your kitchen is humungo like mine - lots of counters and floorspace to be thankful for (and occasionally to grumble about cleaning!).

Both my grown kids came home earlier this month (Scout leaves tomorrow), so we had our cleaning fest and Thanksgiving meal early. You know what that means?

I need to clean AGAIN!


Praise God that there are no dust bunnies in Heaven!

Indeed, holidays are definitely coming and we want to make sure that before that season comes, our home is definitely clean. In our lovely home, we do regular cleaning also. This week, we will have some carpet cleaning (Aurora, IL area) because our carpet's really dirty. Carpet cleaning (Arlington, IL-based) shops have also great carpet-cleaning tools and services that we'll surely love.

There are a lot of commercial cleaning companies that are trying to make their cleaning products as clean as possible. I think that it is great when companies try to keep the environment clean. Thanks for the great article!

This is very helpful tips to take good care of my carpet investment. An investment like this should be cared for and maintained. Just vacuuming your carpet and mopping your tile floors is not enough to maintain them properly.
