What is it about Christmas and mess? Eugh. I don’t know about you, but it always turns my house into what I can only describe as a festive bomb site (if that doesn’t sound like a contradiction in terms).

Mess clutters every surface. The floors are coated in stray sellotape and wrapping paper shreds. And you’ll find sticky Quality Street fingerprints absolutely everywhere.

So, this year, in a bid to beat the chaos and keep the house looking semi respectable, I’ve done some digging and found out what the go-to products are that the people who’s houses remain clean all Christmas long can recommend.
