There are a lot of tasks you need to complete before you go on a trip, but one “task” not often talked about is to clean your house before you go on a trip.

Seriously? You want me to clean house before a vacation?

Yes, you read that correctly… Clean Your House Before you go on a Trip!

Let me explain the reason for this perceived madness wink

Before I started my pre-travel ritual of cleaning the house before a holiday, I would return home from a week in the Caribbean feeling fabulous from all the rest and relaxation only to open the door to see the bed a mess with piles of clothes on top of it and the bathroom counter covered in toiletries that didn’t make it into the suitcase.

Not only was I left with dirty laundry from the trip but I had dirty laundry in the hampers from BEFORE the trip to do too.

There goes all that rest and relaxation down the drain!

Now that I routinely clean my home before I hop into the car for the airport, I return and extend that “on vacation feeling” (for a few more days at least) complete with fresh linens on the bed.

Here’s my list of things I do to travel clean:

  • Tidy up all rooms
  • Change the linen, make the beds
  • Clean the bathrooms
  • Dust, vacuum, mop
  • Empty the refrigerator of any perishables and wipe down the interior of the refrigerator
  • Run the dishwasher
  • Do the laundry. You are going to have a lot more upon your return…
  • Empty the garbage and recycle bin

Bonus Tip
Create a home sweet home meal that you can cook up quickly by tossing a pre-made frozen lasagna or casserole into the oven and not stress about picking up food on the way home from the airport..

Your mom used to tell you not to leave the house with dirty underwear on in case you get into an accident and have to go to the hospital.

Well, I’m telling you not to leave for a trip without cleaning your house first.

Imagine your house sitter or family member stopping by to check in on your house and think the house was ransacked and robbed when in reality you left it looking that way. Clean before you go and avoid the embarrassment!

I know you have a million things to do and the last thing you want to do is clean the bathroom toilet before you go on a trip but, trust me on this one — it’s so much nicer to come home to a tidy, clean home than it is to come back to a home that’s a mess.
 

Do you spend time cleaning your house before vacation? Do you have any tips to clean house quick?
