If it’s a party, there will be dancing, drinking and accidental spills. So, if you are going to throw a great party, be prepared to clean up afterwards. 

It’s best to start the cleaning process as soon as your guests leave. Letting the stains rest on your carpet or couch overnight will only make them stubborn and challenging to get rid of later. 

Try these floor cleaning tips and tricks and stain-removal techniques to clean up like a pro. 

1) Broken Glass

Grab a broom and sweep your house carefully, ensuring that you’ve covered every nook and cranny. Gather up all the large and small glass particles you can find in a dustpan. Then use a slice of bread to remove any tiny shards of glass that you may have missed. Wrap the bread and all the broken glass pieces in a newspaper and carefully throw it in the trash bin.

2) Lipstick Stains on Glasses

Squeeze 3-4 drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl of warm water. If you are looking for a good dishwashing liquid, you can try Vim. Now, add ½ a cup of vinegar to the soapy solution, soak a sponge in the solution and rub the lipstick marks with the sponge. Then wipe off the solution with a damp cloth.  

3) Stains on Your Carpet

You could use a commercial stain removal liquid to remove stains from your carpet, or even dab the stains with leftover beer. Wipe it off with a wet cloth to clean your carpet thoroughly. 

4) Water Rings

Squeeze some toothpaste on any water rings you find on your tables or flooring, and then buff the spot with a clean cloth. 

And in case you forgot, before your next party, always keep stacks of tissue and coasters in various corners of your house, within reach of your guests. You’ll thank us later!
