When the weather cools off and kids go back to school, the holiday season is fast approaching. It’s time to start researching side-dish recipes for Thanksgiving and begin looking for the perfect Christmas presents. For some people, the holidays are synonymous with a time for traveling to see family and friends. Make sure to add cleaning to the checklist before leaving town this holiday season so that you can enjoy coming home to all the luxury of The Manor CityPlace Doral.
Clean out your refrigerator. Nothing spoils the holidays like coming back home to curdled egg nog in the fridge. Take a moment to look at expiration dates of perishable food items. Consider throwing away food in Tupperware full of leftovers or containers of takeout. Throw away what will not last during your time away from home.
After cleaning out that Tupperware and throwing away food, it’s important to clean the dishes and take out the trash. Unrefrigerated, perishable food will most likely begin to rot and create a foul odor if left in the trash while you’re traveling. And it will be even more difficult to clean off hardened bits of food after dishes have been sitting in the sink for a week. Not to mention, food particles can attract unwanted vermin and bugs.
It will help the traveling process be so much smoother if you make sure you’ve washed and dried all your dirty laundry before leaving home. This way, you can expand your outfit options to pack. When you come home, there will be enough clean clothes in your closet and dresser drawer so that you don’t have to stress about having to wash the dirty clothes immediately. Our Doral, FL apartments make this easy with full-sized washers and dryers in each unit.
Take some time to wipe off the surfaces in your spa-inspired bathroom and chic kitchen. Not that it’s essential – it’s just nice for a weary traveler to come home to a clean bathroom and kitchen. You don’t have to do any deep cleaning, just a quick moment to disinfect your granite countertops and pick up. When you get home, you’ll be glad to hop into the bathroom for that post-travel shower or bath in your deep soaking tub and make a homecooked meal just the way you like it in a kitchen with the luxuries of stainless steel appliances and European style wood cabinetry.
Last, but not least, make your bed. Again – it’s not essential, but after sleeping on pull out couches, in guest rooms, or hotels, it’s nice to sleep on your own bed with clean sheets and a fluffy comforter.
