Prepare for a Labor Day party with the following tips!

Is there anything sweeter than a three-day weekend? We think not; which is why it’s time to prepare and make the most of it! If you’re inviting guests over for Labor Day festivities, ensure that your home looks its best. Discover how to clean before a party with the following tips from Misty Clean.

Start with the Bathrooms

Most Labor Day parties consist of cookouts and backyard barbeques. If the majority of the party is being held outdoors, you may not have to worry about cleaning your home from top to bottom. Focus on the most important rooms, like the bathroom, first. Your guests may spend the party outside, but they will need to come indoors to use the restroom. Ensure that it’s guest-ready! Wipe down the mirrors, scrub the surfaces with disinfectant, and brush the interior of the toilet.

Declutter the Common Areas

Depending on the weather, you may have to bring the cookout indoors. Prepare for either scenario and ensure that the common areas are tidy. Small items like books, toys, and clothing can quickly add up, so take the time to find a home for these objects. If you have small children, enlist their help in cleaning up the living room and other common areas.

Do the Dishes

Guests are likely to spend a considerable amount of time in the kitchen. If you have the time, clean the entirety of your kitchen. Wipe down the cabinetry and scrub the tile floors. Starting an event off with a sink full of dirty dishes makes the post-party cleanup even more difficult. If you don’t have time to clean the entirety of the kitchen, just do the dishes. An empty sink will give your kitchen a clean appearance, and it will make the post-party cleanup process much easier.
