Let’s pre-plan the clean up now so when you accidentally spill a little wine or candle wax the night of the festivities you don’t ruin the moment by trying to “Google” how to clean it.
You Spilled Red Wine on a Fabric
Two Glasses of Wine Can Lead To Such a Good Time....
Sprinkle enough baking soda on the surface to cover it completely. Spray white distilled vinegar to make the surface wet. Keep blotting your microfiber rag on the stain until it is removed. You should fold your rag into four sides so that you can blot, switch sides, spray Vinegar solution and blot again. Continue this process until the stain is gone.
THEN REFILL YOUR WINE GLASS!
You Got a Little Creative With The Candle Wax - But That’s Fine!
I know it’s totally opposite of what you may think, but candle wax is easier to remove when dry. If you try to clean it when it is still hot, it will just smear and make the problem worse. This is an accident that you can deal with the day after.
If it spilled on a hard surface use the plastic top of a water bottle and scrape it off. It will most likely come off in the same shape as it dripped. Then use an orange oil cleaner to degrease the oil in the spill and it will wipe up as if it never existed!
On Fabric Spills
Again, let the candle wax dry before attempting to clean it. Then take a dull knife and scrape as much off as you can.
You will now be left with a wax stain on the fabric. Grab your iron and put it on a medium setting. Put a microfiber rag or towel under the fabric and then two paper towels on top of the waxy stain. Iron the top of the paper towels and don’t forget to again turn the paper towels to different sides as the wax melts off of the fabric and onto the paper towel.
The Massage Oil Oiled The Sheets More Than The Body! Oh My!
Remember that the pre-planning makes the plan go smoothly. So restock the White Wine, Red Wine, White Vinegar and Baking Soda. Add a little love into the evening and the Valentine's Day Clean Up should go smoothly. Have Fun and Happy Valentine's Day!
