Reunions and get-togethers usually happen during the holiday season. If you’ll be holding one at your place, taking note of the following tips can definitely make your post-party cleanup easier.
Tablecloths don’t just look pretty, they prevent a table from getting spilled on and stained. You can fold it up and toss it in the wash after the party (or you can opt for a disposable one and just toss it in the trash). Source: AOL
Cleaning Starts Before the Party
Make cleaning up after your bash easier and faster by battening down the hatches beforehand. Initially, close doors to rooms you don’t want guests to visit (your bedroom). Store valuable or fragile items in the off-limits rooms.
Put paper towels and cloths in easy-to-grab locations so you can wipe up spills immediately. Set out two garbage bins–one for trash and one for recycling, and label them. This encourages your guests to clean up after themselves, making less work for you later.
When setting up food and drink, designate a surface for each. That way, alcohol spills and crumbs won’t travel far. Source: TheSpruce
Entertain Your Guests in One Place
Don’t let the party spread, otherwise you’ll spend all night hunting down half-empty wine glasses and dirty dishes. Keep doors locked or spaces decoratively blocked off to encourage company from wandering. Set up the party where you know guests will feel most comfortable. Source: GoodHousekeeping
Use Disposable Dishware
- If you’re serving food at your party, don’t serve it using your household plates. Instead, purchase some inexpensive plastic or paper plates so that you don’t have to wash an endless load of dishes after people go home.
- There are many attractive and recyclable disposable dish products available, so go for one that suits your aesthetic taste.
- If you’re having a fancy dinner party and want real plates, consider renting them from a party rental company. Some companies will provide you with plates and pick them up afterwards so you don’t have to clean them yourself. Source: YellowPages
