Holiday Preparations from Clorox 2 and A Fun Giveaway!

"Oh, you are one of those…"
Though my co-worker said it with disdain, I smiled and was honored to accept the label as “one of those... Christmas people.”    I love Christmas…and have my whole life.  Yes, I started watching Christmas movies already and I have the time and day planned for my decorations to come out.  They take up almost half of the attic…it’s a glorious day every year.
But, it never sneaks up on me and I think that is a big part of my success with the season.  For those of you who get a bit overwhelmed, I recommend these tips:

1.       Proper Preparation and Planning.  I have it down to a science as to what happens first.  When the Christmas linens come out of the drawers, I freshen them up with a good wash which includes Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster, because it will boost and brighten the colors!  They look good as new…my favorite table cloth still looks just-out-of-the-box and it was a wedding gift 31 years ago.

2.       Enjoy The Process, One Day at a Time.  Decorating takes me more than one day, and I just enjoy every bit of it…I have three collections: snowmen, mini-trees in various sizes, and Christmas votive candles holders.

3.       Be Open to Surprises…in other words, be flexible.  If wine hits my favorite winter white sweater, I can get the stain right out with Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster …by the way, you can use it in any washer.  My adults sons might stop by for a game of football in the yard, but I haven’t been in fear of grass stains for years.   It is a busy time of year, and sometimes just a pre-treatment on the stain, means I can get it out later if I cannot wash right at that moment. 

4.       Resist The Temptations to Overspend…I have to remind myself of this one every year!  Sometimes I get carried away!
5.       Make it about others and not about you.  I love the season more when I have a giving heart and look for ways to give back to my family, friends, neighbors, and even offer something special to those I see all the time like my nail technician, doctor, esthetician, hair stylist etc. A smile for everyone!

Ok, yes I sing Christmas carols in the car beginning after Thanksgiving…if you need a boost in spirits just give me a call.  If you need a boost in your laundry, please try Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster.  For more about the product, go to their WEBSITE HERE..
