I am a very tidy and clean person. I have always been super organized and have always liked things around me to be clean. With the holidays just around the corner, that means parties! And that always means a mess after the party is over. But these helpful tips will make cleaning up after your holiday festivities a breeze!
It will most likely be a little chilly outside, but try to open up your windows to help air out your place. This will also help with your home not getting that overpowering cleaning smell. 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. I do this all the time and it works great!
If you are like me then you love candles! But sometimes when you have people over, candles can get messy. When 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. It also might be cool to see and show the kids.
Of course we all know that no holiday party is complete without red wine. Sometimes accidents happen and red wine gets spilled. If you have a red wine stain that you need to get out of carpet or a rug, mix hydrogen peroxide with dish washing liquid. Pour it right onto the stain and it should help the redness fade.
Unfortunately, not everyone is going to use a coaster at your party, but there is a simple and easy way to help get rid of those water stains. When dealing with 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.
No one wants to deal with a Scrooge, so just follow these simple tips and you will be able to make your house sparkle again in no time and without losing that Christmas cheer.
