Hosting a summer party is always a good idea! While hosting a get-together may seem intimidating, the key to party hosting is to plan, prepare, and stay organized. The experts at MTOclean identify an important step to summer hosting, which is the essential cleaning you do beforehand. Review these five summer hosting cleaning tips that will get you ready to throw the party of the season!
Stop dirt and mud at the door by buying a fresh, new doormat. Place the doormat in your entrance way in the hopes that when guests arrive at your door, they will wipe off their shoes and thereby, protect your floors and carpets. Although the doormat won’t entirely keep the filth and dust out, it can at least reduce your clean up afterward.
Your patio and front entryway should be lively places for summer hosting. Brightening your entryway is one our favorite summer hosting cleaning tips because it is super simple to do. First, keep it clean. Sweep away any debris from your porch and stairs for a polished look. Next, add some decorations to your space such as hanging string lights, beautiful plants, or a colorful wreath.
This is a big one. Unless you are renting outdoor portable restrooms, your bathrooms need to look flawless. Your guests will use your bathroom at least once throughout the party, so you’ll want to make a good first impression. This means, sweep the floor, scrub the toilet, clean the counters and stock the bathroom with plenty of toilet paper.
The kitchen is another central area when throwing a party. Make sure to clean out your refrigerator and toss anything that no longer belongs to make room for all the food you prepared in advance. Plus, it’s good to have plenty of space to store any appetizers or desserts your guests may bring. The same process goes with the kitchen as the bathroom when it comes to sweeping the floor and cleaning the counters, just add emptying out the trash, so you are all set when the party begins.
When hosting an outdoor party, you need to prepare for rain, always. So, ensure your living room is ready to be Plan B! Prepare for a dust-free zone by vacuuming and thoroughly sweeping the area. Remove any clutter from your living room and organize the space so that all your guests can fit comfortably.
