Free Holiday Cleaning Printable And A Giveaway!!

SORRY, this giveaway is closed!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Family get-togethers, carolers, snow ball fights, and don't forget the smell of fresh pine needles and hot coco filling the air. However, with all the joys of Christmas there are also many messes. If your hosting a holiday get-together, the added stress of cleaning your home and keeping it clean throughout the holidays can quickly become a nightmare.

This year I've joined with BLACK+DECKER to bring you some smart cleaning tips, a free 10 day cleaning printable, and a giveaway!

This 10 day cleaning printable will get your house in tip top shape before your guests arrive. There are extra spaces in each section to add your own cleaning items, as well as two extra boxes at the bottom for any other areas in your home that may need cleaned.

While getting the house prepared for guests can be a pain, the real challenge comes in keeping the house clean after the guest arrive. Below are my two top tips to keeping a clean home with guests, as well as links to my favorite products that get the job done.

Spot Vacuum - Pine needles, crumbs, pet hair, and dirt will build up quickly in a house full of people. However, trying to maneuver a huge vacuum around your guests can isn't that easy. Purchasing a small cordless vacuum such as this SMARTECH Cordless Lithium 2 in 1 Stick Vacuum from BLACK+DECKER can be a life saver. I love that I can easily pop off the hand held vacuum for small messes or leave it attached to the stick vacuum to easily clean up larger messes. I also don't have to worry about guests tripping over the cord while it's out. The compacted size is perfect for tucking in the coat closet so it's within easy reach (If you want your own SMARTECH Cordless Lithium 2 in 1 Stick Vacuum be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page to enter the giveaway!!)

Clean Up Spills Quickly - Spills left unattended can quickly turn into a sticky mess. Keep paper towels within easy reach for quick clean up. For an even easier solution check out this Compact Cordless Lithium Hand Vacuum also from BLACK+DECKER. This compact hand vacuum can clean up dry and wet messes. When your done, just empty and rinse.

  1. I like the fact that is all in one and is detachable as well. Looks like it has good suction too.

  2. I like that it is cordless with a lithium battery. This would be amazing to use on my kitchen floors!

  3. I like how you can do so much with just one machine.

  4. I like the AutoSense feature on the BLACK+DECKER SMARTECH Cordless Lithium 2 in 1 Stick Vacuum! We have hardwood and carpet floors throughout the house and this feature, of adjusting suction, to properly clean, sounds FANTASTIC!!! ....seriously, what a time saver for this single mom!! 😊

  5. I like that it stands up, great for when you need to stop, you don't need to lean it against something.

  6. I like that it's 2 in 1, would be great for the car as well as in the house.

  7. My wife and I are going to print out these cleaning tips for our own events. I think spacing the cleaning session out for ten days is a great idea. You do not want to feel overwhelmed or overworked by cleaning too many homes at once. Using a cordless spot vacuum is certainly helpful in keeping the home clean during the event.

  8. This is a great check list to get ready for the holidays! Thanks for linking up with Thursday Favorite Things!
