Christmas is just about one month away and there will be plenty of holiday parties for you to attend. But if you are hosting a party of your own, follow these tips to help make the cleaning up part not so bad.
It might be a little chilly, but after a party, air out your place by opening up the windows. This will also help with not getting that overpowering cleaning smell from all of the products you use to clean. Another great idea to help with the smell is to chop up lemons and limes and put them in the garbage disposal. You will be able to clean out the sink while freshen up the smell of your kitchen, which will travel throughout the house.
If you aren’t going to go all out and use the fancy flameless candles and are using regular candles, be prepared for some wax to get spilled. If a candleholder or plate gets wax stuck on it, just stick it in the freezer and the wax will harden and it will be easy to pick right off.
You can’t have a holiday party without red wine and if you are hosting a really good party, then someone just might end up spilling that wine. If you have a red wine stain that you need to get out of carpet or a rug, just mix hydrogen peroxide with dish washing liquid. Pour it right onto the stain and it should help the redness fade.
Usually when you have a party, coasters are not going to be used so you are bound to get watermarks on your tables. But don’t worry; it will just take a little time to remove. If you have a wood table, just take a blow dryer and turn it on high for about 30 minutes hovering over the water ring. The ring should eventually fade away right before your eyes.
You can still throw a fabulous and fun holiday party without having to worry and stress about the clean up. Go ahead and have a great time then remember to use these tips when it comes to cleaning up after the fun.
