Holi Hai! Before and After Care Home Interior Tips

by iDecorwala Admin on March 23, 2024

to Keep Your Home Sparkling After the Festival of Colors

Holi, the vibrant explosion of colors that marks the arrival of spring, is a time for joy, laughter, and of course, a playful assault on senses with vibrant powders and water. While the festival brings families and friends together, it can also leave your home interiors, especially the kitchen, looking like a war zone. Fear not, fellow revelers! Here at iDecorwala, we're here to equip you with a survival guide – Before and After Care Tips to ensure your home emerges from the Holi melee looking just as stunning as it did before.

Before the Colorful Chaos:

  • Prep Your Fortress: Think strategically! Drape furniture, especially upholstered pieces, with dust sheets. Cover hard surfaces like tables and countertops with plastic sheeting. Pay special attention to areas prone to color infiltration, like crevices between furniture and walls. Invest in disposable tablecloths for outdoor celebrations, minimizing the mess that seeps indoors.
  • Kitchen Kabaddi: The heart of the home often bears the brunt of Holi revelry. Clear out clutter from countertops and stovetops to avoid accidental staining. Empty and cover trash cans to prevent color-infused surprises. Stock up on cleaning supplies like sponges, dish soap, and a good stain remover.
  • Modular Marvels to the Rescue: A well-designed modular kitchen can be your Holi hero. Non-porous and easy-to-clean surfaces make wiping away color splatters a breeze. In-built cabinets offer havens for vulnerable kitchenware. If you're considering a kitchen renovation, keep Holi in mind! Talk to iDecorwala's design experts about modular kitchen solutions that are both stylish and functional.
  • The Power of Plants: Indoor plants not only add a touch of nature to your space, but they can also act as natural air purifiers. This comes in handy after a Holi celebration, as the vibrant powders can leave a lingering scent.

After the Colorful Dust Settles:

  • The Great Color Conquest: Act swiftly! The longer the color pigments stay on surfaces, the harder they become to remove. Start with dry cleaning. Use a soft brush or a dry microfiber cloth to gently remove loose powder.
  • Water Warriors Assemble!: For more stubborn stains, armed with a bucket of lukewarm water and a mild detergent, begin your cleaning offensive. Use a sponge for broad surfaces and a soft-bristled brush for crevices. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage your home interiors.
  • Flooring Focus: Tile and laminate flooring are your Holi heroes. They are relatively easy to clean with a mop and soapy water. Carpets can be trickier. Spot clean minor spills immediately with a color-safe carpet cleaner. For deep cleaning, professional carpet cleaning services might be necessary.
  • Designer Furniture Revival: Leather furniture can be wiped down with a damp cloth. For fabric upholstery, consult the care instructions on the furniture tag. Baking soda can be a lifesaver for removing light color stains. Sprinkle it on the stain, let it sit for a few hours, and then vacuum it up. For deep cleaning, professional upholstery cleaning services might be needed.
  • Kitchen Deep Clean: For your modular kitchen, remove all covers and drawer liners. Wash them thoroughly with warm soapy water. Wipe down countertops, cabinets, and appliances with a damp cloth and a degreaser for stubborn grease stains. Don't forget to clean the sink and disposal.

Holi may be a time for vibrant chaos, but with a little planning and these after-care tips, your home can be restored to its pre-celebration glory in no time. Now, go forth, celebrate the festival of colors, and let iDecorwala help you navigate the post-Holi clean-up!
