It’s already November, and Thanksgiving is almost upon us. For some, Thanksgiving is a time when they can sit down, relax with family and friends, and enjoy some delicious food (stuffing, turkey, yams!). For others, this holiday means cleaning, cooking, eating, and then more cleaning. At Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC, we’re a cleaning company serving Buckingham, PA, and other local areas. We want you to belong to the first group and think of Thanksgiving as a time for you to relax and enjoy life. There will be some cooking and cleaning involved, but for the most part, we want you to have fun.
So to make that happen, we’re going to provide you with a guide to help make cleaning your kitchen before and after Thanksgiving dinner easier for you. Here are a few tips to make your holiday a little bit easier and a lot more fun!
1. Organize the fridge – If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner, your refrigerator will probably be stuffed to the brim with food, food, and more food. You can prevent disaster from happening by organizing your fridge and making sure everything is in the proper place.
2. Cook a few things in advance – Although it’s best to cook some food on the big day, it’ll also make Thanksgiving easier for you to cook a few things in advance. Many types of food can be prepared beforehand and then frozen so all you have to do is warm it up before dinner.
3. Soak dishes while you eat – Soaking the dishes you used to make the food while you all sit down to eat can make the cleaning up process much quicker after dinner. For example, the pan that held the turkey can soak in sudsy water, so by the time you have to scrub it, the process is much easier.
4. Grab some helpers – We’re sure there will be some guests willing to help you out. Make sure you have fun while cleaning up too! Afterward, you can kick back, relax, and do whatever you’d like.
