Part of the #ChristmasClean conversation…

Emptying the bins in their bedrooms for a start. Those bins seem to be like the wardrobe in the Narnia books @yosarhw

They also are happy to help hang the washing out @TheBeezleyBuzz

For our #ChristmasClean we give the kids little jobs (fluff sofa cushions, empty dishwasher) that they can do quickly @jhowze

My daughter is quite competitive so if I challenge her to a cleaning race. She loves it @lovepenguins126

Santa hats and elf costumes make everything, even cleaning, more fun! @haningham

[We give the kids] manageable things like dusting and Hoovering. My boys tidied their own room throwing away the clutter! @lauislucky

Vacuuming, mopping, dusting https://t.co/pACjCm3whC @Jessies_Kitchen

Make it into a game…whoever picks up the most toys gets a sweet @Teesimpson9

Let visiting relatives help! My mum happily loads the dishwasher while we sort other stuff (the MIL not so much!) @angep1969

Photos on boxes is always a good idea too. Used to do that with shoes those were the days @irenedreaming

The perfect #ChristmasClean playlist

We put on a Christmas song/carol and compete who gets the most chores done. Time flies by in a flash! @gleave_anna

What’s the best song of all for housework? “I Will Survive” possibly! @kateonthinice

Gotta be “Let’s Get It Started” by The Black Eyed Peas. And “All I Want for Christmas” a cleaner @MentalParentals

The kids tidy up to the Mission Impossible theme tune! They have to blitz before music ends! @lauislucky

The biggest irony is the little man singing the “tidy up” song they have at school – whilst making the biggest mess @Angep1969

we sing the clean up song, my son also goes through all his old toys and donates them to charity @GeorgiFett

BATHROOM

Tips for removing yellow stains in loo

Weird as it sounds, a can of Coke! pour it in, let it sit for an hour, and flush. It really does work! @yosarahw

Harpic Power in the black bottle. Two overnights and it’s sparkly again. Nothing compares. @Xennia79

 

KITCHEN

cleaning a microwave tip from twitter chat

How to banish a smelly fridge

Baking soda and vinegar are also the best things to clean a greasy oven! @lauislucky

Cut an onion in half and leave it in the fridge to collect smells. Bin it afterwards, not edible! @FalcondaleJan

A bowl of baking soda hidden at the back works @xcardiffbirdx

Have you tried baking soda and vinegar? Give it a go, I think it will work @alexandra_wyatt

Cleaning the microwave

I cut a lemon into slices, add water, put in a bowl cook in microwave for 6 mins. Cleans & smells fresh @Beckielise

Sorting horrendous hobs

That has to be my least fave job. Cleaning the oven @Iamamyd

Cook Christmas dinner on a sparkling hob (including the tricky bits) #ChristmasClean #sponsored https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amPfKfVpQwE @SuperSavvyMeUK

An easy way with pots & pans

10 place pans in hot soapy water 2) leave to soak 3) go and watch TV @alexandra_wyatt

 

THE REST OF THE HOUSE

Sparkling windows

Clean windows with a solution of vinegar and water and use newspaper to buff it up afterwards @Teesimpson9

Perfect sitting rooms & guest rooms

Freshen up mattresses and sofas b4 family stay by sprinkling with bicarb. Leave to absorb odours & then vacuum off @OneHome6Hearts

For a great shine when guests arrive: Make your own furniture spray with 2 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon juice @needaphone

Cleaning strategies & coping with clutter

I try to take a ‘one and done’ approach to cleaning jobs rather than leaving them to build up on a to-do list @TheBeesleyBuzz

Don’t blitz all at once. Focus on one room or thing – last week I did the oven & en suite shower @Topsy1973

Labeled tubs! So helpful especially if you can get the ones that slide under beds for easy storage! @Tantrums2Smiles

We usually operate a one-toy-in/one-toy-out policy in December to ease the clutter! @nat_zin85

We usually do a ‘shove all the clutter in bags and hide it in the bedroom before guests arrive’ every year @TheBeezleyBuzz

Have a basket on the stairs for clutter, every time someone goes up they take something upstairs where it belongs @xcardiffbirdx

My best tip is organise all your cleaning products. Cupboard under the sink needs to work for you! Easy to find in emergency @missielizzieb

I like to make a cardboard box with wrapping paper on next to tree [to put stray items in]. Plus does not look out of place @groundrootsjay

 

candle tips for Xmas from Twitter chat

Sneaky quick tips

Love my candles! A fragrance filled home is awesome. Light them all day every day https://t.co/12BekibL8m @xcardiffbirdx

A window squeegee can also help remove pet hair from carpets! A fab trick my mum told me when I first got my dogs @LKash20

Quick paint touch ups but brushes stiff? Soak overnight in fabric conditioner, rinse. Good as new. One less expense @Beachhutcook

Bed sheet on floor before they start playing – then you can pick up all at once @Kateonthinice

Use Playdoh to pick up any spilled glitter. It sticks to the Playdoh and turns it festive @Iamamyd

 

funny pic from #ChristmasClean Twitter chatKeeping a sense of humour

Hey, does hanging so many decorations that they disguise the dirt and dust count as a hack lol!? @domesticgoddesq

I just tell folks the cream carpets are patterned @Kateonthinice

How do folks clean their shower? Am I the only one who strips off to clean it? @missielizzieb

My daughter likes to pretend she owns a cleaning firm and lines all her teddies up, telling them what needs doing @Beckielise

Maybe someone should invent a LEGO hoover for kids  that way us parents would never need stand on it again #ouch @pinkwinkgirly

Get the Mother in Law to do it! Under duress….. @suziejwong

The last words

Thanks for a fun hours, tip all noted and happy festive everyone https://t.co/yaklZt6BBJ @pinkwinkgirly
