Secrets from House Ceaning Services – Master Cleaning Now – how to minimize the effects of a party
Piles of dirty dishes, cups strewn across every surface and spills of red wine (or two) are the most common disorders found in the house after the party. But do not let these repeated offenders scare you away from the epic shindig. For starters, your menu sets the tone.
- Embrace table cloths.
Although the details in the table make it unique, these grooves and cracks are often unwanted hosts of food and drink spillage. Simply pick up the cloth, shake it out and throw it in the wash. No wipe-down necessary.
- Prepare an emergency kit.
The better the party is, the bigger the chance for something to break or spill. That’s why we recommends stocking up on proven stain removers before your bash starts, like salt, soda and lemon. But remember it’s still a party, don’t get too into cleaning and start vacuuming or washing during it.
- Empty your dishwasher beforehand.
One thing guaranteed to ruin your clean-as-you-go party plan is dishwasher that’s full, even before guests arrive. “Make sure your dishwasher is empty or close to it so you don’t have to unload everything to put in the dirty stuff
- Put the bar outside.
If it’s warm outside, that is. This keeps spills outside, as opposed to inside of the house on your floors, carpets and rugs a celebrity makeup artist and home stager. If it’s the dead of winter, roll your bar cart to a surface that’s easy to clean
- Keep trash bags in plain sight.
If guests don’t know where to throw their stuff away, they can’t help you even if they want to.”Make sure you have plenty of trash receptacles located throughout your home so people can throw away their stuff on their own
- Pour glasses as guests arrive.
Instead of having poured glasses out for everyone when they arrive, good when you use a glass drink dispenser when possible. This makes it easier for people choose their own drink and prevents glasses (that aren’t going to be used) from getting dirty.
- Don’t serve messy food.
It’s simple: The less messy food served, the less mess you’ll have to clean. We recommends sticking to bite-size portions that guests can pop into their mouth and recommends less sauces, dips or other “create-on-your-own” meals that lead to spills.
- Create a “soak” zone.
Just place a few dish bins filled with soapy water in an out-of-the-way spot on the kitchen counter towards the end of the party. This creates a spot for guests to place dirty dishes, helping you avoid stacks of dirty plates later. Afterwards, simply take them out of the bin and place them in the dishwasher or do a quick hand wash if needed
- Load the dishwasher before dessert.
If you can’t resist doing a little clean-up before guests depart, do it while you’re in transition. This also means if your party requires two or more cycles, you’ll already be halfway done: It makes it easier to put away the clean dishes and move through the next load
