You've been planning this all year. Your menu is prepared. Your guest list is perfect. You even prepared the perfect party games, but in the midst of whipping up those beloved baked goods and selecting the best playlist for the occasion, you may have neglected to make your home holiday clean.
Don't you worry! We've compiled a list of the best products for you to use when you're getting your home ready for the upcoming holidays:
First impressions are lasting impressions:
When people come to your home, the first area they see is the entryway, so you'll want to be sure to keep this area as clean and as festive as the rest of your home. Use these products to make the best first impression on your party guest: Zep No-rinse Floor Disinfectant, Zep Hardwood and Laminate Floor Cleaner, and Zep Sweeping Compound.
Keep your kitchen in tip-top shape for guests:
The holidays are notoriously food-centered. Where is food normally found? You guessed it: the kitchen! The best parties are the ones that begin and end in the kitchen, so here are some products you can use to keep your kitchen in tip-top shape: Zep Stainless Steel Cleaner, Zep Heavy-Duty Oven & Grill Cleaner, Zep Commercial CleanStone Plus Cleaner & Polish, and Zep Marble, Granite and Quartz Cleaner.
We all have party guests that might be inclined to snoop in the medicine cabinet, but a perfectly clean bathroom will surely deter them:
You can't just rinse out your sink & tub and expect that it will fool Aunt Sally's discriminating eye for grime. Use our Zep Tile, Tub and Shower Cleaner and Zep Acid Toilet Bowl Cleaner to make sure the bathroom passes even the most scrutinizing test.
Make sure your home smells like the holidays:
You've made a good impression, but your guests don't seem as genuinely excited as they should be. Your kitchen is so clean even your mother-in-law complimented you, but something is still off. Your bathroom is sparkling, but what is that odd smell? Sometimes a strange odor can be a party pooper. Maybe it is coming from that new zucchini and eggplant with extra garlic dish you decided to try, or maybe you went a little overboard on the harsh disinfectants, but our Zep Air & Fabric Odor Eliminator will bring your house back to smelling fresh and clean in no time.
Finally, in the midst of a party or family gathering, there might be a glass or two of eggnog spilled, but Zep Commercial has you covered there, too. Our Zep Instant Spill Absorber encapsulates spilled liquids and instantly provides a quick clean-up for floors and other surfaces, ensuring that the host or hostess can waste virtually no time on cleanup and can get back to the festivities immediately!
