Cleaning up Christmas tree needles


Sticky Christmas tree needles are messy. Try to avoid vacuuming them up because they can get stuck inside your vacuum cleaner and ruin it. Instead, sweep them with a broom into a dust pan.

You may want to consider purchasing some Christmas tree removal bags too, which are sold at some hardware stores and online at Christmas Decorations & Gifts (pictured above) or from $2.99 and up per bag. Tuck one around the tree stand and put the tree skirt on top of it. After the holidays are over, simply pull the bag up and over the tree and neatly dispose of it. You can then avoid cleaning up a trail of needles throughout your home.  Residents of the city of Chicago can recycle their tree at a participating site where they will be chipped and made into mulch.
