If you only have time for a few tasks, do the most important ones first...


- Remove the crumbs from the toaster to avoid a serious fire hazard
- Clean out the microwave
- Scrub out the dishwasher


- Vacuum under the beds
- Tighten and lube door hinges to avoid any accidents
- Keep a flashlight in every room with a fresh set of batteries


- Refill your first aid kit with things like plasters, anti-septic and more
- Unclog your drains with boiling water and bicarbonate of soda or vinegar
- Check for leaks behind the toilet and under sinks to make sure water isn’t being wasted


- Unclog your gutters and drains to prepare for the winter showers
- Inspect the outside of your house for problems like broken light bulbs
- Make sure your house number is visible so you can be reached if you are ever in an emergency situation
