It is summer now, which means it’s the most beautiful time of the year for most of us. Yeah, we like Christmas and presents, Santa Claus, a family lunch, a family dinner, a little snow, hopefully, but we adore another season. Our hearts belong to the sunny mornings, the picturesque beaches with fine sand, the uniquely blue sea, or the verdant mountains where you can hike and sleep in tents, having no worries. We all like the summer because it is some freedom. It brings it into your soul and makes you feel at ease and forget about everydayness. No matter how exacting your life is, you will always want to go somewhere you could lose yourself and find something new. Right, we love it. And now you have booked a flight and a hotel, only so to stay overnight somewhere, because you do not need SPA and luxury when you have summer. You are leaving in a few days, and you know now that you have to prepare your house for this whole time you will be away to feel homey and cosy when you return. So do not darken your holiday-tuned mind with worries, and follow these simple steps:
Close and lock all the windows
Well, if you skip this step and one of the windows remains opened the whole time you are away, there are several risks. The first one is connected with the security of your home, and the second with the fact that so much dirt will get into the house that you will need ages later to cope with this whole mess.
You believe this step is obvious, but in reality, too many people decide the time right before their holiday is not meant for cleaning. And when you return expecting to see your beautiful, wonderful home, the dust disappoints you, dirt and unvacuumed carpets all over the house. So, could you do it? It won’t take you that much time.
Store in cupboards
We all have things that generally stay on the shelves or simply on the kitchen plot. However, when we are about to leave the house for some time and won’t use them, it is an attractive idea to put them in cupboards, where they would remain free of dust.
Water the plants
This is a matter of life and death. If you water them now, before you leave, there is a chance they will survive and make your house look nice when you are back home. If you do not do it now, say goodbye to them.
Change the sheets
This is not a connected clean-up task, but if you do it before the holiday, you will be so grateful when you are home and have dreamed of sleeping in your bed for so long.
