Are you having Halloween-themed fun in your house? With decorating, crafting, and so much more it can be easy to find more than your fair share of messes. Here are some great Halloween cleaning tips.
- Lay down a plastic or disposable tablecloth before carving pumpkins to catch any messy pumpkin guts and seeds.
- Use mats both inside and outside your front door to reduce the amount of dirt and debris that gets tracked into your home.
Dust and Cobwebs:
- Halloween decorations often gather dust and cobwebs. Start by dusting off your decorations and then focus on the areas where they were displayed.
- Use a duster or a microfiber cloth to reach high spots and corners to remove cobwebs.
Candle Wax Cleanup:
- If you’ve used candles in your decorations, you might have some wax spills. To remove wax from surfaces, place a paper towel or a brown paper bag over the wax and use a warm iron to melt the wax. Blot it up with a paper towel.
- Glitter and Confetti:
- Glitter and confetti can be a nightmare to clean up. Use a lint roller or sticky tape to pick up stray glitter particles from various surfaces.
- Costume Stains:
- If costumes or clothing have picked up stains, follow the care instructions on the clothing tag, or use appropriate stain removers to treat them promptly.
- Pumpkin Stains:
- For pumpkin-related stains on clothing or upholstery, use a mixture of dish soap and cold water to gently blot and clean the affected area.
- Candy Wrappers and Trash:
- Collect candy wrappers and dispose of them in your regular trash bins. Don’t forget to check under furniture and in corners for stray wrappers.
- Costume and Makeup Cleanup:
- If makeup or face paint ends up on your walls, furniture, or other surfaces, use a damp cloth or a makeup wipe to clean it off gently.
- Deep Clean:
- After the decorations are put away, do a deep clean of your home. Vacuum carpets, mop floors, and dust all surfaces.
- Store Decorations Wisely:
- When storing your Halloween decorations, use clear, labeled containers to keep them organized and clean for next year.
