Hosting during the holidays can be very stressful, even for the most organized host or hostess. You must prepare your home to welcome friends and family, sometimes at a moment’s notice, and always keep a fresh supply of cookies and tasty bites in the pantry. For many people however, the hardest part is keeping their homes healthy and clean for guests. Luckily, the right tools can make a big difference.

  1. Allergy-Friendly Cleaning Solutions

Certain cleaning products contain chemicals that set off allergies. The most common chemicals that can cause allergic reactions include Triclosan, Ammonia, Hydrochloric Acid, Formaldehyde, and BPA. If your guests are sensitive to chemical smells, try cleaning with allergy-friendly cleaning solutions. Mrs. Meyers cleaning products are known for their natural ingredients and might be a good choice.

  1. Vacuum Floors with a HEPA Filter Vacuum

Is there anything worse than having dirty floors when guests come calling? Routinely vacuum your floors with a HEPA filter vacuum that sucks up allergens like pet dander and dust mites that might irritate guests. If pet dander and fur is of concern to you, look into getting a vacuum specifically designed to suck up pet hair.

  1. Use Allergy-Friendly Bedding

Watery eyes and sneezing fits don’t add to your guests’ sleeping experience. Use allergy-friendly bedding that not only keeps guests warm but also comfortable. Hotel Plush bedding offers hypoallergenic material with cooling technology, so guests can breathe happy through the night.

  1. Change Your Air and Water Filters

If you have air purifiers, humidifiers, furnaces, or water filters, you should check to see if they need to be changed. Depending on the manufacturer’s guidelines, air purifier filters and water filters often need to be changed anywhere from every few months to 5 years.

  1. Remove Scented Candles

Walking into someone’s home that smells of cinnamon and autumn leaves might be a welcoming feeling for some and a sign to run for others. Remove scented candles and aerosols from the guest room so your guests aren’t on the verge of a sneeze every time they walk in.

If you like to burn candles in other areas of your home, consider 100% Pure Essential Oils as an alternative. The ingredients are easily found on the label and you won’t have to worry about what you or your guests are breathing in.
