Wake me up when September ends…La la la…La la la…!
Hey! Stop there and then…!
If you’re still busy procrastinating, it’s time to wake up! The holiday season is almost here! Christmas, Thanksgiving, Winter Solstice, and New Year, with so many jamborees in the pipeline, sleeping until the September end is definitely not a genial thought! Your kitchen will soon be busy hosting so many activities and witnessing loads of laughter, and yummy Turkey of course. If you haven’t done anything, get up now and start cleaning every nook and cranny of your kitchen before the holiday hurricane hits you!
Here are 7 wonderful ways to get your kitchen ready for the holiday season…
1. Remove Jumble from Countertops
Are you ready kitchen warrior? Aye Aye Sir! Fantastic! First and foremost, remove the entire jumble from your countertops, and when we say entire jumble, we mean it! The laundry bills, leftover food, newspapers and everything which is gobbling up your kitchen space. Don’t panic, we understand it’s a bitter pill but, if you want to have an exceptional holiday-ready kitchen, you’ll have to step out of your comfort zone. Just make up your mind that you have to finish this task and go for it!
2. Invest Time for Appliance Maintenance
Congrats! You’ve completed the first step successfully! The next big step is appliance maintenance. Refrigerator, oven, toaster, and dishwasher are the four essential pillars of your kitchen. You must take care of them all before you plan a holiday party for your friends. The easiest way to clean the appliances without any hassle is purchasing quality vinegar based solution or bleach. Don’t scrub too hard if you face any difficulty removing the stubborn stains. Simply use lukewarm water instead of cold, and you’re sorted.

4. New Range of Cookware
Organizing the cookware in the kitchen is an art. No, we’re not kidding! Properly organized cookware alone can leave a good impression on your guests. If you feel that your cookware is too old and has lost its appeal, it’s time to buy a whole new range of cookware accessories. If you’re tight on budget, you can skip expensive bakeware, barbeque set, and stockpots and just shop for burner cover, soufflé, chicken roaster, frying pan, and designer serving spoons. If you want savvy and quality cookware, you can visit Lijo Décor and avail 15% discount by applying the coupon code ‘Decor15’.
5. Childproof your Space
A home without children is like roses without fragrance! Indeed, kids are lovely to be around. They add a charm of naughtiness and innocence and make the ambiance fun-loving. To have a good time with the young brigade of your family and friends, please ensure your kitchen is childproof. Keep the sharp objects, lighters, and matchboxes out of the reach of the children. Rest, you can enjoy the evening the way you want.
