5 Simple Ways To Get Your Home Ready

Get your home ready for the new year with these simple steps.

By Liz Hardy, Porch

After the holiday madness is over, clean and prepare your home for the New Year with these five simple steps.

Clean Kitchen Ceilings and Walls

Moisture and smoke from all your holiday cooking can build up on the ceilings and walls of your kitchen. Use a sponge mop with a cleaning mixture made up of dish soap and warm water to clean the ceiling. Use the same mixture with a sponge to wipe down your walls. Rinse with warm water, and your ceiling and walls will look like new.

Flip Mattress

To make sure your mattress wears evenly, flip your mattress every 4-6 months. When you flip your mattress you should also vacuum the mattress and boxspring using the upholstery attachment to remove dust and dirt.

Clean and Organize The Pantry

Take everything out of your pantry, wipe down all the shelves and vacuum the floor. Take this time to reorganize your pantry and throw out any food that is expired or that your family isn’t going to eat.

Clean and Organize The Junk Drawer

Similar to the pantry, dump everything out and wipe clean. Consider lining the drawer with a shelf liner, or leftover wallpaper scraps. This will help protect the wood in the drawers and make cleaning easier in the event that something leaks. Reorganize the drawer by using a drawer organizer or any other household item like tupperware or even ice cube trays.

Dry Clean Linens

After the holidays, take delicate tablecloths and other linens to the drycleaners.
