Holiday Hosting with P&G #PGmom #giveaway

As we move in to our new condo and use a variety of great P&G products to clean, I'm slightly thankful I won't have to host anything this holiday. (I'm also super thankful to the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser which saved me from painting our main bathroom).


Like my cat in the past Christmas photo above, I prefer to hide from hosting duties. But I won't be moving in to a new house every holiday, and eventually it will be my turn.

If you are hosting folks over the holidays, check out these great tips from P&G to help make hosting a breeze.


The Bedroom
Sprinkle Downy Unstopables into your laundry to ensure sheets smell fresh and clean for their entire stay – adding a touch of luxury to their sleep!  To be sure your guests feel relaxed place a Febreze Sugared Cranberry Candle on their bedside table – the aroma is certain to put them at ease!

The Kitchen
Doing laundry can not only be a hassle for guests, but is rarely ever a priority.  With Tide-To-Go Pens, you can offer them the feeling of a crisp clean outfit instantly, in the event of a dinnertime mishap.

Harsh winter air and a sink full of dishes may sound like an unsavoury way to treat your special guests. Since they’re sure to be the first to lend a helping hand after dinner, show your gratitude and make dishwashing a pleasant, post-dinner tradition. It’s simple: swap out your favourite scented suds for Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay, cutting turkey grease and rejuvenating your guests’ hands in just five washes!

The Bathroom
Travel sized portions of body wash, face cream, shampoo and conditioner are the perfect items to keep in the full bathroom for your overnight guests.  As these products are often the first items forgotten when packing, guests will not have to worry when they see Olay Body Wash and Olay Regenerist waiting for them by the bathroom sink.

In the shower, add a couple shampoo and conditioner options to provide hair products that match your guests’ needs!  With Pantene Smooth, your guests will have hair that stays super-sleek for up to 72 hours and, with Pantene Volume, guests who suffer from flat hair will experience 24-hour volume to get them through that holiday party!

Last but not least, remember: before the doorbell rings, spray the house with Febreze Frosted Pine Air Effects. You may be noseblind to your home smell, but guests are not!
