While Raya celebrations are fun and heartwarming, there can be A LOT to do when it comes to preparations like cleaning and grocery shopping. If you also find Raya preparations tiring, don’t worry! We’ve compiled some useful tips and hacks to ease your preparation process. Keep on reading to find out more! 


1. Arrange guest visitations earlier instead of having an open house

“Instead of organizing an open house during Raya, I prefer inviting a fixed number of guests to visit throughout the day. This way, I can be sure that I’ve prepared enough food and duit raya for all my guests.” ⁠—Halim, 36

Having a fixed number of guests, you’ll get to plan and purchase just the right amount of gifts and groceries. Not only that, but you can also prepare duit raya earlier! Gone are the days when we fumble through our handbags for extra green packets when an unexpected guest turns up. ?

2. Do house maintenance at least two weeks before the festive season

“Last year, on the first day of Raya, the air con in the living room stopped working and all technicians I knew were on a holiday. Now we know that we have to conduct home maintenance regularly, especially before the festive season when we’ll be housing guests.” ⁠— Omar, 33

This is why you should never overlook or delay house maintenance. You don’t wanna host your guests with faulty home facilities, or start fixing those leaking pipes only to find out that the plumber is fully booked! ? Here are just some of the important maintenance we often overlook: 

  • Clogged refrigerator coils: release heat ineffectively, causing food to spoil
  • Undrained water heater: sediment build-up damages the tank
  • Clogged air ducts: collect contaminants that reduce indoor air quality

3. Purchase groceries online to save time

“I don’t head out to shop for groceries before Raya. Instead, I would buy groceries online and have them delivered to me. This is how I save more time for spring cleaning.” — Aisyah, 29

Most of us spend a lot of time looking for parking and queuing during grocery shopping. Now that we can order groceries online through delivery platforms, why not use that spare time for other tasks, such as spring cleaning and gift wrapping? ?

4. Pre-wash and pre-cut cooking ingredients in advance

“I used to spend most of the time cooking in the kitchen during Raya. But since I started preparing cooking ingredients ahead of time, I have more time to spend with my family.” ⁠— Siti, 30

Other than grocery shopping, prepping cooking ingredients can also be tedious and time-consuming, especially if you’re cooking for a large group of guests! ? This is why many prefer pre-washing and pre-cutting cooking ingredients days before the festive season. Here’s how you can do so: 

  1. Wash your fresh produce thoroughly and pat dry. 
  2. Cut your fresh produce into the preferred sizes. 
  3. Place the fresh produce in between two paper towels to absorb excess moisture.  
  4. Store the fresh produce along with the paper towels in air-tight, freezer-safe containers and store them in the freezer.

5. Schedule your spring cleaning by breaking down tedious tasks

“I always plan my spring cleaning ahead of time so that I won’t be overwhelmed by the number of tasks. The tip is to break down the cleaning into smaller tasks, such as cleaning one room a day.” ⁠— Khairul, 27

We know too well that spring cleaning is one of the most exhausting chores to do before Raya. ? But luckily for us, there are effective ways to make our spring cleaning more efficient and enjoyable! By breaking down and scheduling heavy tasks, we can avoid last-minute cleaning which can be super tiring and demotivating. 



6. Invest in multipurpose cleaning appliances

“⁠The outdoor tiles at the porch and in the garden are the most difficult areas to clean as they usually contain stubborn stains and moulds. Now that I bought a high-pressure cleaner, I no longer have to spend hours scrubbing and washing the tiles!” — Luqman, 34

Even after breaking down and scheduling our cleaning tasks, there are still chores that are daunting and time-consuming. This is when multipurpose cleaning appliances come in handy! ? Here are some multipurpose cleaning appliances that you should consider trying: 

  • High-pressure cleaners: clean tiles, vehicles, fences, and garden tools
  • Vacuum cleaners: clean floors, carpets, and upholstered furniture
  • Steam cleaners: kill germs while cleaning floors, mirrors, kitchen sink and hob
