Here’s Why You Should Clean Before You Travel

25th Jun 2021

Nothing is worse than a messy home, and this is especially true when you’ve just returned from a summer getaway. The last thing you want to deal with is doing dishes, dusting, and dirty laundry, after all you’ll have plenty of dirty clothes in your suitcase. But, sometimes cleaning up before a trip is one thing too many on the pre-travel to-do list. With the stress of packing on the forefront of your mind, you should still take the time to prioritize cleaning. Here’s where to start.

Your Bedroom

Sleeping on clean sheets always feels luxurious, but after a long trip there’s nothing like a good night’s sleep in your own bed. Before you head out on your summer getaway, take a moment to change your sheets. Trust us, you’ll love the fresh feeling on your skin when you come home.

Add an extra level of freshness to your bed with the 2.5 Inch Duo-Foam™ Charcoal Fusion™ Mattress Topper. Infused with bamboo charcoal, this topper neutralizes odors for a refreshing sleep upon your arrival.

Your Kitchen

No one wants to be greeted home by that questionable smell coming from their kitchen. Keep odors away by taking out the trash before you leave. Toss out old food from your fridge and empty out all the garbage cans in your house. Also, don’t forget to wipe down your kitchen counters, you don’t want to come back to new insect roommates.

Your Laundry Room

The problem with laundry is it’s never completely done. Especially, when you’re coming home from vacation with a suitcase full of dirty clothes. But just because you know there’s more dirty laundry on its way, doesn’t mean you should leave your laundry in piles for when you return. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself with double the laundry and nothing to wear. Throw in a few loads of laundry before you catch your flight, so you have a full closet of fresh clothes for the week.
