Hosting friends and family is always a joyous occasion, but cleaning up afterward is another story. Of course, the best guests will help you tidy up during and after the festivities, but some tasks require careful attention. Discover how to clean up after a party, and consider calling Misty Clean for a professional cleaning!
Gather the Essentials
Whether you’re planning to host 10 guests for Seder dinner or 40 guests for Easter brunch, it’s important to prepare the cleaning necessities ahead of time. Gather all of the essentials and keep them in a plastic bucket so they’re ready to go when you are. Important cleaning tools include rubber gloves, microfiber cloths, and a bottle of natural cleaning solution.
Collect the Trash
Hopefully your guests were helpful about placing their bottles in the recycling and their glasses in the dishwasher. Even if they helped to tidy up, there are bound to be a few plates, cups, and napkins left behind. Before you start cleaning, collect all of the dirty plates and trash first.
Load the Dishwasher
Load the dishwasher first, so you have time to run another cycle if you aren’t able to fit all of the dirty dishes at once. Clean the rest of the house while the dishwasher works its bubbly magic to increase efficiency!
Check the Patio
As a rule, it’s best to start with the room farthest away from the kitchen. If the patio checks that box, go outside and make sure it’s clean. Check for drink spills and leftover food and drink first. If there is a spill on your patio, scrub it clean with warm water and a brush. Remove any trash and wipe down the tables.
Vacuum the Carpets
Once you’ve picked up the trash and wiped down the tables indoors, vacuum the carpets. The pollen count is high in Maryland, and guests unknowingly brought pollen and allergens into your home. Thoroughly vacuum the carpets and couches to reduce the spread of allergens.
