A mother came up with a genius but brutal way of keeping her living room clean before the holidays.

Nick Denbow shared a photo to Twitter last week showing just how far his mother would go to keep their living room spotless before the holidays.

His mother Michele took the "don't mess up my living room!" warning to a whole other level by closing the room for a month.

Yep, she closed it off like it's a store being renovated.

Michele posted a shut down notice and put tape across the entrance of the room, warning people not to enter.

"This room has been cleaned for the holidays and is officially closed until Thanksgiving," reads the sign.

"Special permission will be considered for you to sit on my clean furniture and/or walk on my clean carpet only after the following conditions have been met:

1. You have showered and are dirt and odor free from top to toe.

2. You are wearing freshly laundered clothing."

"If permission is granted... No food or drinks are permitted at this time. Thank you!" she continued.

She then listed a selection of names for her family to call her, including "Payer of the bills," "Queen of the castle" and "Person ruining your life."

Nick told Buzzfeed News that no one has yet entered the living room since the sign was put up, although she's "mostly joking" about closing it.

"She just wants us to keep it clean and decided that putting a sign and tape up would make that clear."

With Christmas just six weeks away, this might not be such a bad idea...
