Well, hello! I hope everyone had (or is still having) a most merry holiday.
On the topic of merriment, it's probably time that you think about unleashing solutions to help remedy the unholy mess of stains, spots, smudges, splatters and splotches left behind by the nonstop parade of rowdy houseguests, anxious pets, tipsy grannies, and coaster-eschewing brother-in-laws that may have passed (or are still passing) through your home over the last couple of weeks. Below, you'll find a handful of eco-friendly cleaning supplies to help you conquer any unsightly seasonal remainders. And in addition to the below products — many of them new to the market — that I have on my radar, it's never a bad idea to save a few bucks by concocting your own natural cleaning solutions from household staples like white vinegar, baking soda
, lemon juice, and the like.
Have any post-holiday party cleanup rituals that you'd like to share? Any specific products that you consistently rely on for erasing all evidence of somewhat sloppy festivus festivities?
