How to Get Rid Your House of Stains Left Over from Halloween

Halloween stain removal

Get the carving kits ready, get your Halloween gear prepared too since the night of creepy crawlies is coming your way. There may be some pretty bad smears and stains you can collect during that night, but specifically your kids will likely be the main source of those. There is no sense in worrying about it now, but you will need to be ready for the aftermath of chocolate stains and worse out there. Here are some of the potential issues you will encounter, making cleaning them a priority:

cleaning chocolate stains
• Dark chocolate stains

These can come from one of the most beloved staple foods around the Halloween fun, being a complete pleasure to eat and a real nightmare to clean. Quite fitting for the holiday right? Cleaning these dark chocolate stains and keeping them from melting into furniture and clothing can be hard, but not impossible. To minimize the damage you should make sure you avoid forgetting any chocolate on your couch or beds or elsewhere, or you will need to do some serious upholstery cleaning.

pumpkin stain removal
• Pumpkins

Each year we tend to use a lot of pumpkins during this time, so if you are done with the carving you need to make sure you are done with the remains. If you leave them alone you can quickly see gnats around them, not to mention they will become hardened and cause worse issues during home cleaning.

cleaning makeup stains
• Makeup

Now we all had great ideas about makeup over the years, but the truth is there are many materials inside the usual makeup that would be staining. Makeup stain removal can be pretty hard, so you will need to treat the stains early on as soon as you notice them. Make sure you avoid the worst of it by catching the issue early on and focusing on cleaning right away. It may take you a lot less time to do this instead of handling it later during the regular house cleaning. The older the stain is, the harder it will be to clean.

cleaning bubble gum
• Gum

Oh boy gum. If you ever had the misfortune of having it stuck in your hair, on your carpets or elsewhere you know how much of a pain it can be during cleaning. If you want to solve this issue you should focus on quick carpet cleaning or whatever else needs cleaning up gum from. Do it right away by freezing it with ice, this works in most cases.

removing egg stains
• Eggs

One of the unpleasant pranks around Halloween is having your house egged. Yeah it’s not as funny as it sounds when you’re on the receiving end of it. It will be up to you to clean the stains before they become absolutely unpleasant. If you want to avoid the worst of it you can sit in front of your home and you can give out candy. If you live in a flat, then you can avoid the worst of this issue and you won’t have to worry about house cleaning.

One of the best ways you can keep your kids from staining your place during Halloween is to eat the candy as soon as possible to avoid the worst. f you want to you can beat the stains on Halloween itself, but chances are most of your domestic cleaning will happen on the day after the fun and sweets are gone.
