The 7 Merry Messes of December

Share this article

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 the 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. In fact, December 4 is National Cookie Day! 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

    December marks plenty of other national holidays, including National Pastry Day, which falls on December 9th this year. We love baking pies all winter – there are so many different kinds to make! The only danger is, kitchens get crowed during the holidays and all it takes is one little bump for the pie to go splat! and you’ve got a warm pecan pie face down on the tile. 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 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 as pretty as they are, 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 EV675® Robotic Vacuum! This robot cleans for you, so you don’t have to worry about picking up every last 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
  8. 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. Fortunately, 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!
