Cleaning Before a Trip

Cleaning Before a Trip

So, we fall into the camp of wanting everything absolutely spic and span before we leave on an adventure. There's just something about wanting all our ducks in a row before we feel free to go off and have fun. A checklist of what we take care of before a big trip:

  • Dust the room and mop floors
  • Empty the refrigerator so nothing is growing in it when we return
  • Put away all clothing and laundry
  • Make sure there are NO dishes in the sink
  • Wash the sheets and make the bed like we've never made it before
  • Spend an hour decluttering and drop off donations
  • Clean the bathroom from top to bottom and throw out anything we haven't been using
  • Give all the plants a good watering
  • Give the pets a good petting
  • Take a really relaxing bath
  • Triple check our lists

There's probably more, but since we're in the throws of getting ready, we have to get to work!

What do you do before a big trip?
