Posted on by admin

The Holidays are almost upon us and although almost everyone would agree that we love Thanksgiving and the Christmas season it is also quite stressful. Although it is true that getting together with relatives and friends lifts our spirits and brings us joy it’s the clean up after the party that fills us with dread.

Carpet traffic definitely increases during this time of the year and with the parties and unexpected guests so does accidental spills, dirt and grime. In order to keep your sanity this season the following are helpful tips in case of accidents during and post party:

During The Party-Red Wine

Immediately blot off as much of the wine with a clean absorbent white cloth or paper napkin. Then spray with a mixture of water and detergent. Spray/Rinse with cool water and keep blotting till you take out most of the water then let dry. If you are also the host and you don’t have time for the lengthy remedy, cover the area with a pile of salt and allow it to absorb the wine. You can cover the salt pile with a small container or box to keep guests from walking over it.

After The Party-Red Wine

If you took the salt route vacuum it off. In 2 cups warm water mix a tablespoonful of gentle dish-washing liquid and white vinegar. Then sponge on the mixture to the area. Next blot it on until stain disappears. Rinse with water and blot dry.

During The Party-Gravy Spill

Scrape up off the carpet any remnants of the gravy. Spritz the area with a gentle dish soap and water solution then blot off with a clean white cloth. Rinse with water and blot it off with a clean white rag or paper towels then let dry.

After The Party-Gravy Spill
