The 7 Merry Messes of December

They call it the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be one of the most mess-prone times of the year. Don’t let merry messes bring your holiday spirit down. Here’s a list of products that are perfect for cleaning up some of the season’s most notorious spills and stains.

1. Cocoa

The cold winter months call for mugs of hot cocoa to warm us up, which may find their way to the carpet with kids and pets running around the house. With ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro Carpet Cleaner on hand, sucking up that spilled cocoa is no biggie!


2. Cookies

It’s not really December without Christmas cookies. Baking cookies and other holiday treats is a fun tradition for a lot of families, but it also presents plenty of chances for cookie crumbs. That’s why we keep our ICONpet Cordless Vacuum on standby, so we can clean crumbs off the floor and any other tricky places they may fall.


3. Pie

We love baking pies all winter – there are so many different kinds to make! The only danger is when kitchens get crowded during the holidays and all it takes is one little bump for the pie to go splat! and you end up with a warm pecan pie face down on the tiles. Normally this would be a hard mess to manage, but the CrossWave® Cordless Max Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner makes cleaning up this merry mess easy as pie!


4. Poinsettia

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that National Poinsettia Day is celebrated in December, too. The festive flowers are all over the place this time of the year. They’re beautiful but if they get knocked over, you’re left with piles of dirt on the ground. The Pet Hair Eraser Lift-Off Vacuum is a pro at cleaning up these kinds of messes, so your floors will get back to being merry and bright in no time. And although they are pretty, it’s important to remember poinsettias are toxic to cats and dogs, so make sure to keep them in a safe spot, away from furry friends.


5. Sprinkles

Sprinkles are a great addition to Christmas cookies and gingerbread houses, but if they end up on the floor it can be a real headache to clean up. That is unless you’ve got the SpinWave® Wet and Dry Robotic Vacuum. This robot cleans for you, so you don’t have to worry about picking up each and every spilled sprinkle.


6. Santa Boots

When Santa, or anyone else, stops by during December they’re bound to have dirt on their shoes. As much as you’d like to ask people to take their shoes off before they come inside, you can’t control everyone, especially the big guy. With a vacuum like the Pet Hair Eraser® Lithium Ion Cordless Pet Hand Vacuum on your side, merry messes left by shoes will be cleaned up so fast, you may forget they ever even happened!


7. Tree

They say all good things must come to an end and the Christmas tree is no exception. In a perfect world, you’d be able to take your tree down with minimal mess, unfortunately, we don’t live there. Gladly, the ICONpet Cordless Vacuum will help make tree teardown less stressful, so you can kiss Christmas goodbye and move on to planning your New Year’s Eve celebration!
