You are one of those whose home is their pride and joy and you go great lengths to keep it clean. Quite understandably, you dread the havoc that the coloured water and powders can create in your immaculate home! How much ever careful you may be, colours find a way to sneak in and settle down in nooks and corners of your home. However, don’t let this fear come in the way of you enjoying the festival of colours! Here are a few tips you could use for getting your house back to shape after Holi - 

Post Holi Cleaning Tips for your Home:

Walls – While baking soda and water is often used to remove the stains on floors, if tried onthe wall, it could lead to peeling or chipping of the paint. Use a mild detergent instead and clean using a soft cloth to avoid scratches.

Upholstery – At times the effects of colours on curtains, cushions or other upholstery may not be visible immediately to the naked eye. However if left unattended, it could be the breeding ground for fungus and mould. If the colouring is due to dry colours, then it's better to dust it off or even better, vacuum it off. If the stains are caused by wet colours, then use cotton soaked in vinegar or lemon juice to remove the stain. After that, wipe it with dry cotton cloth.

Furniture - If the colours are dry, then simply dusting it off should be enough but in the case of wet colours, try using a cotton ball soaked in acetone. Be gentle when using acetone as it may remove the varnish from some delicate furniture.

Bathrooms - Use liquid bleach to remove stains from white tiles and use detergents for laminated/coloured flooring. Use a scrubber with soft bristles to get stains off from fittings and sinks. Be gentle when using the scrubber in order to avoid scratches.

Floors - Water (be it coloured or normal water) on the floor, could be hazardous for obvious reasons, and could also lead to staining of the floor. Dry colours might act as a catalyst for an asthmatic attack. Dry colours can be swept off using a broom and wet puddles of colour should be wiped off as soon as possible to avoid them going dry and crusty. A cleaning assistant like floor mopping robotBraava, is highly recommended for a situation like this. Dry mop or wet mop, Braava covers it all, so that you can enjoy a colourful Holi - worry free!
