I love the thought that when I'm on holidays I know I'm coming home to an clean house so I clean it.

I'm another one who cleans like a woman possessed before going on holidays.
It is a frenzied attack that I insist on doing alongside some incredibly military-style packing.
i am no fun in the lead up to a holiday.

I prefer to leave it clean & tidy. Will have all washing up to date & put away, kitchen cleaned, floors vacuumed & mopped, toys packed away.
It's nice to be able to come home from a holiday to a clean house & only have to do holiday clothes washing.

I make the beds/change the sheets. Washing all done and put away, kitchen and bathroom clean, floors vacuumed and mopped, throw some bleach in the toilet just before we leave.
I also do a grocery shop before we leave so I know that when I get home I've got everything we need (except perishables).
Bins are emptied and fridge cleaned out and lawns done too if needed, although I do them every week anyway.

Definitely full on clean. I have a toddler who likes to hide food everywhere and i dont want to risk there being something hidden that will rot and fester over the week. Yuck!
And its so nice to come home to a clean house

I don't sleep before we go away as I have to make lists on paper and in my head.
Before we go away I must have:
Fresh bath towels/hand towels hung up
Beds made and fresh sheets on
Kitchen spotless, dishes done etc
Fridge empty bar the condiments
Bathrooms and toilets cleaned
Bedrooms clean & tidy
Floors mopped and carpet vacuumed
I will also quite often take the opportunity to let off an insecticide bomb inside whilst we're not there.

Clean before I go. Nothing more annoying them coming home to a messy house.
