  • Cleaning your Home After Holi

    Holi is just around the corner. As one of the most vibrant festivals of the year, your home may be the hub of the festivities. Whether you are hosting a party, or friends and family are coming in and out, it is inevitable Holi will become a part of your home. However, color gets everywhere, from the floors to walls to sinks to countertops. Here some effective tips to get rid of the Holi colors and make your home spotless and clean again.

    Color Stains on Floors: Any water or color stains on floors can be hazardous as somebody might slip in water or dry color can lead to an asthma attack. If there are pools and puddles of wet color, first blot them with paper towels immediately to keep the color from staining the floor. Then sprinkle detergent powder to break down the colors chemicals. With simple water stains on the floors, dab the water with a tissue or old newspaper. Clean it up as soon as you see it, as it may stain your flooring. Mix baking soda and water to make a paste, and pour it on the stain. Allow the paste to dry and wipe it wth a wet rag or sponge. This paste will easily clean the floor without affecting the texture. If you have white marble floors in your home, liquid bleach can remove the stains, however DO NOT use liquid bleach on color or laminated floors.

    Color Stains on Kitchen Cabinets: With pesky stains on your kitchen cabinets, dab color them with acetone or hydrogen peroxide on a cotton or sponge. Wipe the stain area with a damp cloth.

    Color Stains on Sinks, Countertops, and Tiles: Color stains on these surfaces can easily be removed by scrubbing them with a soap-soaked brush. Make sure the stains are scrubbed with a delicate hand to avoid scratches on any surface.

    Color Stains on Windows: Cleaning the windows is fairly simple. Use acetone on the wooden frame and the baking soda-water paste for the glass surfaces. Your windows will be as good as new!

    Color Stains on Wooden Furniture: With dry colors on your furniture, simple dusting is enough. However, to remove color mixed with water, wet a small cotton ball with acetone and use it to remove the stain. Make sure to be gentle while cleaning, as the cleaning solution can remove the varnish if used harshly.

    Color Stains on Upholstery: Wet upholstery becomes a breeding ground for fungus and mould. To avoid this, clean off the stains immediately. For dry color, broom or vacuum it off. For water-based stains, soak the material in water with white vinegar. On cushions, soak the stain with vinegar or lemon juice, and wipe it off with a cotton ball after 15 minutes.

  • 5 Steps for Hosting the Perfect Holi Party in Your Home

    The most vibrant festival is just upon us to welcome to spring season. Holi is such an exciting time to celebrate with friends and family and create beautiful memories. This year, make your Holi memorable by hosting the ultimate Holi party. Follow these steps to ensure that your Holi party is a success.

    Step 1-Plan the Guest List: Holi is the festival of colors that celebrates the spring season and the upcoming harvest. Maintain the celebratory spirt by inviting those you feel good about, and enjoy participating in the Holi festivities. Invite your friends and families and ensure all family members have people of a similar age group so nobody is feeling out of place. For example, if a couple with teenage kids is hosting a Holi party and inviting their friends, then the kids should be encouraged to invite their friends as well. 

    Step 2-Food and Drinks: A party without food or drink is no fun at all! Ensure that you have finalized your food vendors a week before your party as they will be taking orders for countless parties. Avoid cooking an extensive amount of food and keep it simple with fun finger foods for your guests to grab whenever they feel like. Small bites such as pakoras, ladoos, papad, and even a tray of burfi are perfect for your Holi party. Avoid heavier foods as people will be moving around constantly. In drinks Bhang is a classic favorite. However, for those not in favor, always have other options such as thandai, lemonade, and easy cocktails and mocktails.

    Step 3-Music: No Holi party is complete without music. It is a happy festival that requires the upbeat music. Have a playlist mix with some Bollywood numbers and some fun English dance songs. Push everyone to dance and have a great time. 

    Step 4-Organic Color: Ensure you have enough color for the party itself. Make sure that the colors are organic and skin friendly to avoid your guests leaving with rashes and semipermanent color stains! Keep dry color on tables where it is easily accessibly and stock up on pichkaris and water balloons. However, ensure the water is used intelligently and not wasted throughout the day. When rubbing color on someone, be sensitive to the face, eyes, and nose. 

    Step 5-Prepare Your Home: One thing to keep in mind while throwing a Holi party is that there will be a mess when it is over. Oftentimes this causes stress and anxiety for the host, which can greatly affect the mood of the entire party. Take steps to make sure that your home is not completely filthy after the party. Roll up expensive rugs and hide all the breakables. Cover your sofas and chairs with plastic covers to avoid dirty hands any color getting on the furniture, and keep the bedroom doors locked to avoid extra rooms for getting dirty due to Holi colors. For your guests have one or two accessible restrooms, and encourage your guests to stay outdoors until dusk to avoid them from spreading Holi color indoors during the day. 

    Most importantly, enjoy yourself! It is a chance to let lose and have fun. So enjoy yourself and have a great time. Wishing you a very Happy Holi!
