6 Post-Party Cleaning Tips and Tricks Homeowners Must Read

One of the best things about the holiday season is the never-ending parties with friends and relatives. And if you find yourself (and your home) one the hosts this year, you might want to read these cleaning tips and tricks.

These tips can save you a lot of time and effort in cleaning the post-party mess. It can save you from the unwanted stress and headache after a night of fun, laughter, and excitement.

For broken glass

Broken glasses at parties are pretty much a natural thing. To clean up the mess (safely and efficiently), sweep up the big pieces of broken glass with a brush and dust pun and use slices of bread to pick up the small parts. Wrap the bread in a paper and toss it out.

For lipstick stains

To quickly remove lipstick stains on wine glasses, use a mixture of ½ cup of white vinegar and warm soapy water. Scrub it onto the stain and rinse thoroughly.

For carpet stains

Removing carpet stains is such a pain. It’s not easy and often times requires professional help. But if you want to try it yourself, try this nifty trick. Rub a few drops of beer (if you run out of stain-removing liquid) into the stain and rub it until it goes away.

For water rings

Water rings on wooden furniture is not a pretty sight to see a day after the party. Good thing there’s a good trick to get rid of it pretty easy. Just rub a small amount of non-gel toothpaste onto the water ring and rub with a clean, soft cloth.

For melted candle wax

If there is a melted candle wax on your wooden dining table, don’t try scratching it off as it can damage your furniture. Instead, put some ice cubes in a plastic bag and let it rest on top of the wax. This will make the wax become brittle making it easy to peel off.

For floor scuffs

After a night of slow but crazy dancing around your house, you’ll surely find unsightly floor scuffs around. Fret not! Scuffs on a hardwood floor can be buffed by merely using a dub of floor cleaner and rubbing the area vigorously with a cotton cloth.

Now that you're armed with these post-party cleaning hacks, why not enjoy the party up. Go get a glass of wine, turn the music up and dance the night around. Happy Holidays!
