Preparing for Easter Weekend
Easter represents a rebirth and a great time for reunions with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. In our family the festivities include a large meal and an afternoon together topped off with an Easter Egg Hunt for all the children.
Our preparations range from baking a special pie or cake to one of our favorite rituals – dying eggs. Our children and their friends always love to decorate eggs for their Easter Baskets. Maid Right franchise owners keep your home spotless so you can plan your dinner menu and activities for the special day without worrying about all the cleaning chores. Since these fun activities can lead to stains, we have some simple suggestions to clean up any potential messes.
- Egg Dying. Remember to place a towel on your counter top and put an old shirt over each of your children’s outfits to minimize the stains. For the stains that sneak through, let the clothing or towels soak using a prewash stain remover and rub your stain remover into the fabric. This will help to take out any stains completely.
- Easter Baskets have chocolate bunnies that can leave a stain on the front of a shirt or dress on Sunday morning just as you are getting everyone ready for special services during the day. If this should happen, use the same approach to rub in some detergent or a prewash stain remover before your launder the clothes.
- Easter Egg Hunts. Although Easter Egg Hunts bring out the whole family to enjoy this annual event, a slip can result in dirt and grass stains. Fight grass stains by quickly treating any spots with a prewash stain remover. Let it sit for at least five minutes, then launder the clothing in the hottest water safe for the fabric.
We hope these stain fighting tips will help you clean up spills on counters, little ones and adults. Maid Right owners keep your home spotless at Passover, Easter and special gatherings all year. Maid Right takes care of cleaning so you can enjoy all these special times with your family.
