The echoes of laughter, the warmth of family, and the delightful aroma of Thanksgiving feasts have filled your home. The aftermath however, leaves homeowners faced with a daunting task: cleaning up the mess. But with the right strategies and a touch of organization, your home can sparkle once more. So I’m going to share with you four post-Thanksgiving cleanup tips that will help you restore your home to its pre-festivity glory.
Tackling Stubborn Stains:
Thanksgiving is synonymous with indulgence, and that often means spills and stains on your carpets, upholstery, and tablecloths. To combat these stubborn marks, act quickly. For liquid spills, blot the area with a clean cloth to absorb as much as possible. Avoid rubbing, as it can spread the stain further. Create a DIY stain remover using mild dish soap, warm water, and white vinegar. Test it on a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to the stain. For tougher stains, consider professional cleaning services that specialize in stain removal. These experts have the right tools and expertise to salvage your cherished fabrics.
Efficient Kitchen Cleanup:
The heart of any Thanksgiving celebration is the kitchen, but it’s also the area that bears the brunt of the mess.
- Start by clearing the countertops of clutter. Separate the items that need immediate cleaning from those that can wait.
- Load the dishwasher strategically to maximize space, and wash large items by hand to save dishwasher space. Don’t forget to clean your appliances thoroughly.
- For the microwave, heat a bowl of water with lemon slices and a cinnamon stick for 3 minutes, and let sit for 10 more minutes. The steam will loosen grime, making it easier to wipe away. For your oven, use a mixture of baking soda, water, and white vinegar to create a natural cleaning solution that can tackle grease and burnt-on food.
Restoring the Dining Area:
The dining area is where memories are made, but it’s also where spills, crumbs, and stains accumulate. Start by clearing the table, removing linens, and shaking off crumbs outdoors.
For linens stained with cranberry sauce or gravy, soak them in cold water before laundering to prevent the stains from setting.
Wipe down your dining table with a mild cleaner suitable for its material. For wooden tables, avoid abrasive cleaners that could damage the finish. Clean and polish your silverware and glassware to maintain their shine.
