Creating Your Thanksgiving Cleaning Checklist

It’s happened to all of us. You hear your first guests knocking at your front door, and you suddenly remember you never got around to ridding your bathroom of that odd, lingering smell.

So, before you tackle odors, soap scum, or grime, make a Thanksgiving cleaning checklist to organize your tasks into one convenient to-do list.

Here’s a template to help get you started.

Kitchen surfaces:

  • Exterior of appliances
  • Cabinets and drawers
  • Countertops
  • Garbage cans
  • Sink and faucet
  • Stovetops
  • Tables

Bathroom surfaces:

  • Bathtubs
  • Cabinets and drawers
  • Countertops
  • Doors and handles
  • Fixtures
  • Shower
  • Shower curtains
  • Sinks

Bedroom surfaces:

  • Chairs
  • Closets (hampers, gym bags, etc.)
  • Pet bedding
  • Upholstery
  • Walls

Other surfaces:

  • Upholstery

If that seems like a lot, don’t fret. You can use Wet & Forget products to clean all of the surfaces listed above.

Tackling Kitchen Grease and Grime

Clean up grease and grime with Wet & Forget Indoor this Mother's Day!

Whether you’re hoping to start your Thanksgiving cooking from a grime-free starting point or return kitchen surfaces to their spotless state when all the baking, boiling, and roasting is done, Wet & Forget Indoor can help.

Packed with tough grease and grime cleaning power, Wet & Forget Indoor answers the question of how to clean grease from your kitchen surfaces. It’s effective on virtually all washable, non-porous surfaces in your kitchen:

  • Appliance exteriors
  • Countertops
  • Garbage cans
  • Sinks and fixtures
  • Stovetops
  • Tables
  • Walls

Even better, Wet & Forget Indoor kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on hard, non-porous surfaces.* So, a single application does more than clean; it also sanitizes.

To clean grease, dirt, and grime, apply the product to relevant stains. Then wipe with a paper towel or dry cloth.

To sanitize hard and non-porous surfaces, spray and allow the surface to remain visibly wet for 10 minutes. Then wipe dry or let the surface air dry — the spray leaves no sticky or dull residue.

When using on surfaces that will come in contact with food, such as countertops, stovetops, and tables, wipe the surface with potable water before using the surface again.

*As a disinfectant, Wet & Forget® Indoor Mold+ Mildew Disinfectant Cleaner kills: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Serratia marcescens, *Human Coronavirus,*lnfluenza Virus Type A/ Hong Kong, *SARS Associated Coronavirus cause of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, *SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 SARS-CoV-2 cause of COVID-19, *Vaccinia (Pox Virus), *Norwalk Virus (Norovirus), *Rotavirus.”

Deodorizing Bedrooms, Bathrooms, and Closets

To truly deodorize surfaces, you need to attack them at the source. Otherwise, you’re only covering up odors, allowing them to play the long game in the never-ending battle for your nose’s attention.

Wet & Forget Indoor destroys odors at the source. As mentioned above, it sanitizes surfaces of odor-emitting bacteria, but it also inhibits the growth of musty mold and mildew.

Since Wet & Forget Indoor contains no bleach, you can use it on both hard and surfaces known for their tendencies toward stinkiness:

  • Bathtubs
  • Fabrics
  • Garbage cans
  • Gym bags
  • Hampers
  • Pet bedding
  • Sinks and showers

Deodorizing is easy. Simply spray surfaces and allow them to air dry.

Sanitize and deodorize your pet's bedding.

To inhibit mold and mildew growth, re-apply Wet & Forget Indoor every seven days. You can use it more frequently if new growth appears.

For soft surfaces, spray until the fabric is wet. Allow the fabric to remain visibly wet for five minutes and then air dry.

That’s one spray to deodorize, sanitize, and inhibit mold and mildew growth. It’s a versatile tool that turns a tough cleaning job into one that’s practically effortless.

Of course, sometimes the cause of the odor isn’t the surface but the spray itself. So, we should note that Wet & Forget Indoor contains no irritating fumes.

Additionally, our weekly shower spray comes in two pleasing aromas: vanilla and fresh scent.

That means you’re not just replacing a noxious odor with a harsh, anti-sceptic one. Instead, you’re removing the source of unpleasant smells and adding one that denotes cleanliness without overpowering the senses.

Ridding Soap Scum From Showers and Sinks

Soap scum is one of the most persistent pains in cleaning bathrooms, kitchen sinks, and even washing machines. It’s formed by the combination of the minerals in water with soap scum and body oils.

If left to collect on surfaces, soap scum will stain and start to attract mold. So, it’s not just unsightly; it’s also gross.

To keep soap scum and shower grime at bay, use Wet & Forget Shower — our weekly shower spray and soap scum cleaner.

The spray was developed with soft chemistry — meaning it contains no bleach, ammonia, or dyes. It’s safe to use on virtually any bathroom surface (except natural marble) and doesn’t give off irritating fumes.

You can apply Wet & Forget Shower almost anywhere soap scum collects:

  • Acrylic
  • Brass, bronze, chrome, and stainless steel
  • Cultured marble (but not natural marble), granite, and stone
  • Fiberglass
  • Glass and shower tile
  • Porcelain
  • Shower doors and vinyl curtains

You can also use it in kitchen sinks and washing machines, too.

To clean and prevent soap scum, apply the spray to the appropriate surface.

If using on counters, sinks, and toilets, rinse surfaces immediately after application. Otherwise, let the spray sit overnight, but not for more than 24 hours, and then rinse surfaces the next day.

Unlike daily shower sprays, Wet & Forget Shower only needs to be applied every week. However, if you’re starting from an especially dirty starting point, consider daily applications until surfaces are clean.

Saying Goodbye to Uninvited Spiders

Invited guests should feel welcome in your home. For uninvited guests, you need to create an invisible barrier that they dare not cross.

We’re not talking about that long-lost cousin you haven’t seen in at least a decade and are unsure how they found your address. When it comes to true uninvited guests, we’re talking about spiders.

Spray Miss Muffet's Revenge around lighting fixtures.

Spiders tend to make their way inside your home during the fall season in search of shelter, food, and water. Many species also spend autumn searching for their mate, adding an entirely new reason to want to keep them out of your home.

Miss Muffet’s Revenge is your spider shield, keeping the eight-legged pests outside where they belong.

Application is simple. Spray a 12-inch band along the exterior perimeter of your home. Surfaces should be wet but not soaking.

For best results, apply Miss Muffet’s Revenge on a clear, dry day without wind or rain in the forecast.

For indoor spider control, apply a four-inch and along the interior perimeter of your home or wherever you notice a recurring arachnid issue. Again, surfaces should be wet but not soaking.

Apply the spray in popular spider-hiding spots like closets, near light fixtures, basements, and corners of rooms. The uniquely designed bottle can spray surfaces up to 10 feet away for easier application.

A single bottle can treat an entire home. Depending on your environment and climate, a single application can last for up to a year.
