Holiday Prep Ideas That Won't Break the Bank

From the shopping and entertaining to baking and decorating (and in our case, MOVING HOUSE), the holidays give us plenty of reasons to feel overwhelmed (PACKING) and financially stretched. This season, lessen the stress by incorporating a few simple tips that will help leave a lasting impression without breaking the bank.

Revive Outdoor Decor

Love your holiday decor from last season? Don't be afraid to use it again this year to help save time and money. To revive last years decor and keep it looking like new, try using OxiCleanTM Versatile Stain Remover Powder. It's the perfect solution to remove dirt, dust and grime from decorations that were sitting in storage or outside since you put them away.

Woo Overnight Guests

Fresh blankets and sheets is an inexpensive and cheerful way to help your guest feel like they're staying at a hotel. To help freshen stale sheets and towels from the back of the linen closet, use Arm & HammerTM Plus OxiCleanTM Unit Dose Power Paks in Fresh Scent for a refreshing clean. 

Take it one step further and keep a basket of fresh towels and toiletry items they may have forgotten, such as toothbrushes and toothpaste. The new Arm & HammerTM Truly RadiantTM lineup of products are sure to impress. 

The Truly Radiant Clean & Fresh Toothpaste and SpinbrushTM are the perfect combination that refreshing and clean mint flavour that provides long lasting freshness guests will love!

Host a Potluck Christmas Dinner

Make this years turkey dinner a team effort. Get your guests involved in the party and arrange a potluck so that everyone pitches in. As the host, take charge by preparing the turkey and have guests bring the fixings, sides and desserts (and wine)!

When it comes to clean up, cut back on the time you spend in the kitchen by using OxiCleanTM Extreme Power CrystalsTM and Triple Action Dishwasher Booster to remove the toughest stuck on foods and stains. There's no pre-rinsing or pre-washing necessary.

Dress to Impress

From family gatherings to New Year's Eve parties holiday spills and accidents are bound to happen. This year, don't let a fear of spills and stains keep you from wearing your favourite party clothes. Instead, use quality laundry detergent such as OxiCleanTM Liquid Detergent to remove any dried-on stains the first time and keep clothes looking vivid and bright.

To accessorize your favourite party outfit, pair it with your best bling! For a quick, easy and effective jewellery refresher, try mixing Arm & HammerTM Baking Soda with hot water and leave your jewellery to sit for a few minutes. In no time, your diamonds will be sparkling bright and looking like new.

Schedule Some "Me Time"

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is sure to leave any host tired, even when entertaining is kept simple. Enjoy some well deserved "me time" and opt for a hot bubble bath with candles and reach for some Rub A535TM Anti-Inflammatory Heating Cream to soothe your aching muscles.
