Newsletter – January 2020 – Post-Party Clean Up
Post-Party Clean Up
a. Grab a trash bag and do a sweep through the living room and kitchen, picking up the regular paper and food garbage as you go. b. Walkthrough for a second time, picking up all the recyclable trash.
a. Use a dish bin, go around the room collecting dirty plates and glasses. Place it by the sink to either hand wash or place in the dishwasher in order to avoid overcrowding.
b. Remove baked-on food residue from your slow cooker: fill it with water and add 1/2 cup of vinegar, three tablespoons of baking soda and a few drops of dish soap. Turn the slow cooker on for an hour to let the cleaning mixture work its magic, then scrub with a dish brush and rinse.
#3 DISPOSABLE CONTAINERS
a. Wrap up leftovers that haven’t been sitting out too long and pop them in the fridge before you start cleaning the kitchen.
b. Or, purchase the echo-friendly, compartmentalized clamshell containers so guests can have to-go items.
#4 AIR OUT THE ROOM
a. Get the air flowing by opening a few windows and turning on the ceiling fan, if you have one.
b. Too cold, light a fresh-smelling candle or use essential oils in a diffuser.
c. An all-natural stove top air freshener: Fill a pot with water and add lemon slices, a few sprigs of rosemary and one drop of vanilla; then simmer.
#5 PRETREAT STAINS
a. If you notice any stains on the sofa or rug, spray with a pretreat product and let it sit while you continue cleaning up.
b. Or, make your own by filling a spray bottle with a mixture of equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide, along with a few drops of dish soap.
#6 CLEAN THE GUEST BATHROOM
a. Add your favorite toilet cleaner to the toilet bowl and leave it to work its magic while you wipe down the vanity and mirror. T
b. Throw the hand towel in the dirty laundry, give the floor a quick mop, then return to scrub and flush the toilet. Voila!
#7 REMOVE RINGS from WOOD TABLES
a. Not all of your party guests used coasters? You can use toothpaste to remove a water ring stain from your wood coffee table.
b. Squeeze a small amount of white (not gel) toothpaste onto a soft cloth and rub the stain gently. Finish by wiping the table with your favorite furniture polish.
#8 LASTLY – CLEAN FLOORS
a. Wait until everything else is done before you bring out the broom, vacuum, and mop.
#9 SIT BACK RELAX and ENJOY
