Holiday Cleaning: How To Prep Your Guest Room With Wet & Forget
Having a guest room can sometimes be a blessing and a curse. As the holidays near, having your geographically distant friends and family members stay at your home can help warm your heart on even the coldest days.
On the other hand, holiday cleaning and guest room prep can add stress to the season. So instead of getting bogged down with a holiday cleaning checklist that just won’t quit, use your favorite Wet & Forget products to keep your guest bedroom and bathroom clean and smelling great.
Extinguish Unpleasant Odors
If there’s anything bound to add some noxious funk to your guests’ holiday spirit, it’s the presence of unpleasant odors. Musty closets, forgotten trash cans, and bathrooms speckled with mold and mildew can sour the season faster than spoiled egg nog.
There are a variety of odor-refreshing sprays out there, but most of them merely cover up the smell with something artificial and cloying. Instead of a refreshed guest suite, these sprays only add another scent to the bouquet of the unclean.
Wet & Forget Indoor, however, tackles mold odors at the source. Instead of masking foul odors, it eliminates them, leaving your guest room and bathroom smelling fresh and renewed.
You can use Wet & Forget Indoor safely on a variety of surfaces, including those likely to harbor stink:
- Closets, cabinets, and drawers
- Garbage cans
- Hampers and gym bags
- Pet bedding
- Sinks, showers, and toilets
- Upholstery and fabric
To deodorize effectively, apply the product to the surface via the sprayer or a cloth, mop, or sponge. Let the product sit for a few minutes before wiping it or allowing it to air dry.
Wet & Forget Indoor also inhibits the growth of mold and mildew, the source of so many musty odors. So, when used regularly, you’re not only eliminating must, you’re helping to prevent it from invading your guests’ nostrils in the future.
Disinfect High-Touch Surfaces
If there’s one present you don’t want to give your guests this holiday season, it’s a petri dish of bacteria and viruses. But, unfortunately, if you’re not using an effective disinfectant, that’s precisely what you’re serving up.
Yes, that means you should attack your bathroom’s potential bacteria problem with vigor, but it also means that you shouldn’t forget about door and cabinet handles, tables and countertops, and fixtures.
Of course, disinfecting a guest room and bathroom can sometimes come with its own problems. Bleach, a standard household sanitizer, can be dangerous when not used properly, and other disinfectants may emit harsh fumes.
Wet & Forget Indoor, on the other hand, is an effective disinfectant that leaves no irritating fumes in its wake. In fact, Wet & Forget Indoor kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces.*
It is also a proven soft surface sanitizer against Staphylococcus aureus and Enterobacter aerogenes — two common sources of infections.
You can use Wet & Forget Indoor safely on most indoor surfaces in your guest bedroom and bathroom, including:
- Cabinets and countertops
- Doors and handles
- Fabrics and upholstery
- Fixtures, sinks, and showers
- Tables and chairs
On top of its disinfectant properties, another benefit of Wet & Forget Indoor is its ease of use. The unique sprayer allows you to reach far distances or disperse the product over a wide area, and the attached three-foot hose means you can twist the sprayer without tweaking your back muscles.
To disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces, apply the product to the appropriate surface until it’s thoroughly wet. The surface must remain visibly wet for at least 10 minutes, at which point you can wipe it dry or allow it to air dry.
To sanitize soft surfaces, hold the sprayer six to eight inches from the surface and spray until the fabric is wet. The material must remain visibly wet for five minutes, then allow it to air dry.
(If the soft surface is soiled, clean it first before using Wet & Forget Indoor.)
In a very real way, the best present you can give your guests is to clean your spare bedroom and bathroom with Wet & Forget Indoor before their arrival. It only takes a few minutes, and you’ll leave your guests wowed.

Say Goodbye to Grime
So far, our holiday cleaning tips have mostly been about vanquishing invisible enemies like odor molecules and bacteria. However, there may be no more common foe in the bathroom than soap scum and shower grime. It can deck your shower tiles, show up in the sink, and even spread to your washing machine.
Wet & Forget Shower is a weekly, no-scrub shower cleaner. It uses a gentle, non-abrasive formula, so you won’t be left with harsh fumes or scratched shower tiles as it works to clean and prevent soap scum from your bathroom surfaces. The spray can also clean surface mold and mildew stains from hard, non-porous surfaces.
Additionally, it contains a soft vanilla scent or fresh scent that leaves a bathroom feeling more like a spa than a harshly sanitized surgical suite.
An ideal tool for holiday cleaning, Wet & Forget Shower is safe to use on virtually all bathroom surfaces (except for natural marble):
- Acrylic and fiberglass
- Brass bronze, and stainless steel
- Chrome, porcelain, slate, and stone
- Cultured marble and granite
- Shower tile
So, use it to clean your bathtub, counters, sinks, toilets, and fabric shower curtains.
To clean your shower or tub of soap scum and grime, spray down shower surfaces after the last person uses it. Then, the next day, rinse the surfaces with water before using the shower again.
For other applications (such as treating sinks or toilets), spray and rinse immediately after use.

With Wet & Forget products at your side, getting your holiday cleaning done is easier than ever. Your guests will be thankful that you care enough to protect them from foul smells, bacteria, and unsightly soap scum.
