How to do the Same-Day Post-Party Cleaning

Yes, the aftermath of a party – crumbs everywhere, dishes piled up to the ceiling, and surfaces as sticky as glue. It’s tempting to think that all you have to do is whip a broom and some cleaning supplies out of your magical bag, but the truth is it requires more skill than that. So grab your feather duster, grab your vacuum cleaner, put on your super stylish gloves (because who said hygiene can’t be glamorous?), and let’s get started!

It’s never easy to take the first steps to start cleaning up after a party.

Find and collect trash

With a large garbage bag, go through the house looking for papers, disposable cups and plates, and other trash to get rid of. Put on some music and collect!

Save and take care of all the leftovers

So that they don’t rot and start to smell bad overnight, you must keep all food scraps in the fridge or the cupboards. Believe us, you will not want to get up the next day and in addition to having to collect food, you must collect ants and rot.

Your house was probably full of confetti, disposable cups, food, and decorations all over the floor.

Wash the dishes

We know that after a big party, tired and just wanting to go to sleep, the last thing you want to do is clean all those dishes. But unfortunately, it is a fundamental step of the after-party cleaning. The food will stick to the plates and glasses and it will be even more challenging to finish this task the next day. If you have a dishwasher, that will be much easier. So get to work!

Turn on the washing machine!

If your guests have been on the sofa, on the bed, or have used chairs and cushions, it is time to put all that in the washing machine.

Find and clean spills and stains

Now yes, one of the most important steps in this cleaning guide has arrived. Detect every stain and spill in your home, and act on it quickly. Depending on the seriousness of the matter and the type of substance that has been spilled, the treatment to dispose of it will be different. You can use a multipurpose cleaner to soak spills before wiping them up with a paper towel or clean cloth. On the other hand, check your carpets and curtains, and put them in the washing machine if necessary.

How to do the Next Day Post-Party Cleaning

Christmas and New Year parties can be a ton of fun—that is, until the morning after when you have to tackle all that cleanup. After all that festivity, it can feel like an overwhelming task.

What to do with the bathroom and kitchen?

With a cleaning product made with half warm water and half vinegar, you can wipe down the kitchen sink and stovetop. This way it will be much easier to eliminate the grease that probably accumulated in quantities during the party.

On the other hand, the bathroom will need a very good cleaning, since it is surely the most damaged part of the house. With a disinfectant, clean everything. From the sink to the toilet and the mirrors.

Put everything in its place

Surely the furniture and other items in your house have been arranged and rearranged over and over again during the party. Now that you’re done, it’s time to put them back in their proper places.

Take care of the furniture

Go over all your furniture with a microfiber cloth and a good cleaning solution. This will remove stains that you may not have seen the day before, along with dust and glass marks.

Now the hard part: cleaning the floors

Your floors will have been full of dirt and sticky from the day before. Therefore, it is necessary to clean them thoroughly. First, you must vacuum to remove dust and debris, and then pass a mop throughout the house.
