The holidays are sneaking up on all of us and with most of the gifts crossed off your holiday list it is time to think about cleaning for the holidays whether you are hosting a party or just have your own family at home. Why not spruce things up with some wonderful scented cleaning products. I love to clean! Yes I did say that. I actually enjoy having a clean, company ready home all the time.

Colin Cowie, lifestyle expert and celebrity party planner, really knows how to throw a party. Colin relies on trusted P&G products Febreze, Swiffer, Mr. Clean, Dawn and Cascade to ensure that his event spaces are clean and ready to impress. From the guest bathroom to the kitchen and beyond, Colin believes that the P&G line of home care products are an essential component of planning the perfect party. recommend these five simple tips that Canadians can use to prepare their homes for the busy holiday season:

Here are five great tips from Colin on hosting a get-together in your home ~

  1. Start with a Colour Theme - incorporate these colours into everything from invitations to decorations.
  2. Good Lighting is a Must - Use lights on dimmers, or adjust the lighting by adding candles. There's no such thing as too many candles! To create a unified scent around the home try Febreze Candles! They also make great parting gifts for your guests!
  3. Let Guests Help Themselves - sit down dinners can be intimidating, try a variety of food stations instead.
  4. Always be Ready for Guests - store a Swiffer WetJet and the super handy Mr Clean Magic Erasers in an easy to reach spot. They're great for a quick clean, and that way your home is free of unwanted dust and footprints (and little fingerprints!)
  5. Hide the Mess - Preload the dishwasher with Cascade All-in-1 Action Pacs and load dishes as you use them. Need to handwash? Try a fast-acting dishsoap like Dawn Original, it'll give you an overnight soak in five minutes!
Do you have any cleaning tips you would like to share? Are you planning on hosting a gathering this year?
