Christmas Party Must Haves!

This is the time of year where people gather, they eat, drink and enjoy themselves.  Unfortunately for so many throwing parties, or hosting a Christmas dinner, can end up being a burden because of all the cleaning, and cleaning up, that goes into hosting.  So today I’ve put together a list of Christmas party must haves for you!  With the items on this list your house will be sparkly clean in no time and if someone spills red wine on your carpet, you’ll have it out in no time!

#1 Woolite Pet + Oxygen
If you don’t get anything else on this list, this is the product to have!  I have cleaned full glasses of red wine out of my white carpet AND couch with this product!  If there is a food or drink spill, Woolite Pet+Oxygen will have it clean in no time!


#2  Zap Cloth
The Zap Cloth is a quick and easy solution to a clean and streak-free house! Before guests arrive you can clean windows, mirrors, kitchen appliances, kitchen counters, faucets, sinks, tables, etc. with just the Zap Cloth! 

Your house will look sparkly clean, without a lot of effort, when your guests arrive.

#3 OxiClean Max Force

It’s almost a guarantee that someone is going to spill something on their clothes at every holiday party.  I always have OxiClean Max Force on hand because it will get out any clothing stain!  If you have kids this is a must have product at all times!

#4 Finish Powerball Tablets
I don’t know about you, but after hosting a party the last thing I want to do, at the end of the night, are the dishes! I recently discovered the Finish Powerball dish washing tablets which allow you to just toss the dishes in the dishwasher, no scrubbing or pre-rinsing required!  I’ve put this product to the test on even the dirtiest, cheesiest of dishes and had success every time!

#5 VersaVac
With spills and messes bound to happen you want to make sure to have a powerful vacuum cleaner and steam mop on hand!

The VersaVac is an all-in-one bagless vacuum cleaner, and steam mop, that is powerful enough to clean up crumbs and pine needles out of the carpet, and versatile enough to mop up any spills on your wood/tile floors!  This is a must have in our house with as many parties as we like to throw!

#6 Comfort Zone for Cats (or Dogs)
For those of you with curious pets, the comfort zone sprays are a great way to keep them out of your holiday decorations!  Years ago we had a very curious cat that ended up taking down the entire Christmas tree because he was pulling on a string of lights! Now I spray our tree with the Comfort Zone spray and it keeps the animals away.  If you don’t want your decorations ruined by your curious pets then this is a must-have product! 

Click here if you have cats and here if you have dogs.

With these few products on hand you’re bound to have the best holiday parties!  You can be worry free, and enjoy yourself more, knowing that your house is sparkly clean and that if an accident occurs, you have what you need on hand to clean it up!  I just love this season!  I’m off to send out invites to my annual party!

    I bought the Zap Cloths earlier this month. They are great! I can’t believe how well they work and with so little effort (and no toxic smells).
    Thanks so much for the tip.
