It's after-party time!!

Party time is great fun! But clearing up after? Here are some simple solutions to save you from some nightmarish clearing up!!

December - the Friday of the year, when celebration needs no reason, is that time of the year, when an almost non-stop round of partying and celebration take the cake!

The mess after!!

Warm soapy water does the trick!

Fill up a shallow plastic tub with warm soapy water. Dump all the glassware in here – carefully of course! To add a sparkle to glassware, add a few drops of laundry blue (Ujala) to the water. Using a sponge, briskly clean, and rinse with hot water. Stubborn stains from glasses can be removed with washing soda.

Brush the upholstery 

Instead of picking bits of snacks etc., off the floor and from the upholstery, arm yourself with a soft wire brush (the kind used for cleaning your leather jackets and brushing your pants etc) and clean-sweep off all the specks from the upholstered furniture onto the floor. Then with swift sure movements of the good-old jhaadu, sweep the place clean.

Get Tidy

Conserve time and energy by walking around the home with two bags - one for the litter and one for the added accessories or décor add-ons (for the duration of the party) and clear up ashtrays, flowers, tissues, etc., etc., leaving the area as lived in as you are always comfortable with. You can spend precious time the morning after, putting them away in their assigned places but don’t forget to spray the air freshener.

Organise left-overs

Organise the kitchen – the kitchen is always the worst hit area after a roaring party. Organise the leftover food by directly filling in some disposable containers with food that needs to be given away, with the rest going into suitable containers for your fridge; save yourself from making fresh breakfast the next day.

Disposable Tableware

If you have sensibly used disposable tableware, you’re at peace, as all you need to do is dump everything into an over-sized garbage bag and dispose!

Rest to ready for the next!

Finally, spend a good 10 minutes on yourself - take off your make-up, moisturise your hands and go to sleep, dreaming about the next big party coming your way…
