Home Prep Checklist for the Holidays + Giveaway

Home Prep Checklist for the Holidays
The most wonderful time of the year is almost here, and if you're anything like me, you're not quite fully prepared.  I may have gotten a jumpstart on the decorating, but my house is in no way ready for holiday guests.  It's a good thing majority of our family live in Louisiana and we'll be going home for the holidays, but that doesn't mean I can't fully avoid hosting preparations.  I always do a deep clean this time of year since you can never go wrong with a clean house.  Here's how I prep my home for the holidays and my cleaning checklist:

- Declutter all rooms
- Vacuum, sweep, and mop all floors
- Vacuum couch cushions
- Wash bedroom, bathroom, and living room linens
- Swap out decor for holiday specific items (prints, pillow covers, etc)
- Replace shower curtain liners
- Polish faucets
- Clean toilets
- Dust furniture, windows, and ceiling fans
- Deep clean carpets and rugs
BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution before and after
I'll admit, that last point on the to-do list doesn't happen enough.  It's been over two years since my living room rug had a deep cleaning and when you have two dogs living in your home, that's two years overdue.  I had forgotten just how pretty and white my rug really is until I gave it a deep cleaning with the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution.  You can see the difference it made above!  The white was to the point where it was looking grey until I used the BISSELL carpet cleaner on it.  Now it's looking new again!

This was something I knew needed to get done, but I had been putting it off for a while.  The thought of deep cleaning the carpets seemed like a lot of work, but the BISSELL ProHeat Pet Cleaner 2X takes the hassle out of deep cleaning with its light weight design and express clean mode that dries in an hour.  It has multiple cleaning modes with dual DirtLifter brushes and heated cleaning to lift dirt and stains deep down.  If you have a pet or carpet in high traffic areas, I highly recommend this!  It comes with BISSELL Deep Clean + Antibacterial formula, and there is also a full range of other formulas to choose from for a professional clean.
