November is here and I am going to be honest and say I may have possibly set up all my Christmas decorations last week… My house may look like somewhere Buddy the Elf would love to hang out… And I love it.
I like to get my Christmas decorating done early, it leaves time for Christmas activities, crafts, baking, I can see what new decorations I need/want to buy and the house is festive for when we have visitors.
(I have posted some photos of my latest Christmas purchases on my social media and I’ll share some photos of my decorations shortly!)
November and December is a busy time for everyone, I feel when the weather warms up and the Christmas season arrives everyone gets more social. We have more bbqs, more friends drop by to say hello and we just enjoy having people visit.
But being this busy often means my cleaning routine gets messed around, so I like to keep products on hand that help me quickly give me a house a “clean appearance” but at the same time make it actually clean & hygienic.
Sometimes in the silly season people like to give you a 10 minute warning before they drop around. A quick text to say “hey, what are you doing? Mind if we pop over and say hello?” – now I will rarely turn someone down to visit – especially around Christmas, I love our home being a warm and inviting place for people to visit. So after a message like that it normally sparks a “clean as much as I can shake down” of the house before they arrive. I like to believe my house is in a constant state of being reasonably clean, but a quick re-clean of the kitchen bench & guest bathroom just makes me feel a little more confident in the appearance of my home.
The cleaning products I am using at the moment and that I think are great are by Dettol.
The Surface Cleanser and the Healthy Clean Kitchen Spray are my top 2.
Dettol is household name that people associate with hygienic & clean – well I know I do. It is a brand I trust.
The Surface Cleanser is a great cleaning product, it cleans everything from toys, the bench tops in my bathrooms and kitchen, the bin and I even use it to wipe down the toilet.
The Healthy Kitchen Spray leaves my stainless surfaces really shiny and I feel confident knowing my kitchen surfaces are clean and hygienic after using this product.
The surface cleanser is good for a quick clean and the kitchen spray is a wonderful deep cleaning product that is perfect to use if you have a bit of time up your sleeve.
Another product by Dettol I really like and have a few stashed in different places are the little healthy touch hand sanitisers. I’ve been using these since before I had LuLu, they are great for keeping in your hand bag, nappy bag and in the car. I had the pump version as well on LuLu’s change table and also have them in the bathrooms. Hand sanitiser is a must for anyone, but especially for parents!
Dettol also has a vast range of other great products for your family and home, I also really love the disinfectant wipes that make cleaning super fast & convenient.
I’ve partnered with Dettol this month to bring you all an exciting give away just in time for Christmas. Having extra cleaning products is a blessing this time of year, we are cooking & entertaining more often and therefore cleaning more, so I thought this give away would be perfect.

I like to make lists to keep me organised. I keep lists for cleaning before and after christmas as well. Surface wipes are amazing for keeping benches clean and germ free!
I like to let my toddler help doesn't always make it easier but it makes it fun and keeps them occupied at the same time =)
I love 30 minute power cleans. Basically I call it, and every one has to pitch in and zoom around putting things away, tidying, cleaning and sorting anything and everything for 30 minutes. The house feels so much more together afterwards, just the way I like it!
We have our own individual list of daily chores as well as my tackle list. I tackle one big thing each day. 4 rooms to tackle over 4 days, one day for the yard, one day for the kitchen and laundry and one rest day.
I use a family organiser/planner to keep everything in order, and I try to spread out my chores so I don't get too anxious about it all getting done. I prepare a lot of things in advance where possible (I plan to write my Christmas cards out on the weekend, for example), and I also try to get my family involved as much as possible, when possible.
I write everything in my Diary straight away and work towards crossing off every item on my daily To Do list. Also, I started a massive house clean-up this month so that everything is neat and tidy come December! (Rafflecopter name is Dianne Childs)
I clean a bit everyday so it doesn't become a mountain of a job later on!
I like to vacuum at least once a day. Keeps the whole house feeling clean if the floors are done. (Plus with a mobile baby who likes to put everything in his mouth, gives me less to worry about haha)
For Christmas, I spend November decluttering and spring cleaning so December can be an easier time!
