The holidays are just around the corner, which means lots of fun family dinners and parties. But, that also means there are lots of potential messes just waiting to cover your furniture and floors. What if you didn’t have to worry about those little spills and accidents? Click through our favorite cleaning hacks below to keep your house spick and span this holiday season.

Shiny (Cookie) Sheets

Freshly baked cookies are a major holiday perk. But, after baking so many delicious treats, your cookie sheets have probably seen better days. If you want to return them to their former glory, forget about scrubbing and soaking with traditional soap. Try mixing hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to create a grease-busting paste that will leave your baking sheets looking brand new.
