Post-Thanksgiving Cleaning Tips from Wet & Forget
Thanksgiving is busy enough without having to worry about cleaning. Luckily, with a few of your favorite Wet & Forget cleaning products, you can get your Thanksgiving cleaning done with enough time to spare for Black Friday deal hunting.
Tackle the Kitchen!
Your kitchen probably takes the most abuse before, during, and after Turkey Day. There’s the grease and grime from cooking, the well-traveled guests and their guests (bacteria and viruses), and the bouquet of unfriendly odors emanating from your sink or garbage can.
Tackling each of those cleaning issues will likely take time, effort, and a pantry full of harsh cleaners — unless you use Wet & Forget Indoor.
Wet & Forget Indoor cleans, disinfects, and deodorizes without exposing your family and guests to bleach or irritating fumes. You can also use it on a wide range of kitchen surfaces:
- Appliance handles
- Countertops, tables, and walls
- Doors and doorknobs
- Fabric and upholstery
- Garbage cans and hampers
That means no need to switch between sprays every time you clean a new surface. Additionally, you’ll cut through grease and attack odors at the source to keep them from coming back.
Wet & Forget Indoor kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses*. So, you can easily disinfect your home with one cleaning product.
In most cleaning applications, you can simply spray the surface, then wipe it dry after a few minutes, or allow it to air dry. To properly disinfect hard non-porous surfaces, ensure the area remains visibly wet for at least 10 minutes, and to sanitize soft surfaces, the fabric must remain wet for five minutes to disinfect.
*As a disinfectant, Wet & Forget® Indoor Mold+ Mildew Disinfectant Cleaner kills: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Serratia marcescens, *Human Coronavirus,*lnfluenza Virus Type A/ Hong Kong, *SARS Associated Coronavirus cause of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, *SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 SARS-CoV-2 cause of COVID-19, *Vaccinia (Pox Virus), *Norwalk Virus (Norovirus), *Rotavirus.”
Rescue the Bathroom!
Besides the kitchen and whichever room has football on the TV, the bathroom is probably next up in terms of Thanksgiving Day usage rate. So, whether you’re cleaning for Thanksgiving or after it, Wet & Forget Shower can keep your bathroom clean and smelling fresh.
Wet & Forget Shower does the dirty work, so you don’t have to. It’s a once-a-week shower cleaner that cleans and prevents soap scum and also removes surface mold and mildew stains.
Additionally, Wet & Forget Shower is safe to use on surface materials throughout your bathroom:
- Acrylic and vinyl
- Brass, bronze, chrome, slate, stainless steel, and stone
- Cultured marble (but not natural marble)
- Glass and glass tile
You can use the product on baths, counters, shower doors and curtains, tile, and toilets.
Wet & Forget Shower is non-abrasive and contains no bleach or irritating fumes. In fact, its soft vanilla scent or fresh scent can add a spa-like aroma to your aroma.
To clean your shower, simply spray the area after the last person gets out. Then, rinse down the shower surfaces before the first shower the next day.
To clean other surfaces (such as sinks, counters, and toilets), spray, then rinse the area immediately after application. The bottle’s unique sprayer will help you reach surfaces typically tricky to clean, such as far corners.
For a deeper cleaning that includes disinfecting surfaces, consider Wet & Forget Indoor. It’s safe to use on high-touch bathroom areas, such as door handles, cabinets, and fixtures.
Simply spray the surface, wipe it dry after a few minutes, or let it air dry. There’s no sticky residue, and your guests will be wowed by how clean and fresh your bathroom feels.
Refresh the Laundry Room!
Whether it’s the saved-for-company cloth napkins, guest bed sheets, or the clothes of traveling family members, your laundry room will also get a workout during the holiday. Our favorite Thanksgiving cleaning tips for keeping the area clean and odor-free involve Wet & Forget Shower and Wet & Forget Indoor.
Cleaning your washer helps remove and prevent soap scum build-up. Without cleaning, soap scum can leave your freshly laundered clothes with chalky, white residue.
Wet & Forget Shower will eliminate and prevent soap scum in your washer. Simply spray your washer’s interior, making sure to get all the sides, and let it sit overnight.
The following morning, run a rinse cycle in your empty washer. The water and spray will work together to clear soap scum, grime, and mold and mildew stains (on hard, non-porous surfaces), helping your clothes to come out cleaner.
If your laundry room is suffering from a musty smell, Wet & Forget Indoor can help deodorize the area by attacking the source of the odor. It removes musty smells and inhibits the growth of mold and mildew.
Spray Wet & Forget Indoor on your empty clothes hamper, the gasket on your washer’s door, or even appliance exteriors. The spray will get to work immediately, vanquishing odors and leaving your laundry room smelling fresh again.
To deodorize your clothes hampers, let the spray air dry overnight. For use on the door gasket, thoroughly soak it and the door opening. Then wait for 10 minutes and wipe the area dry with a sponge or cloth.
When you include this as part of your regular cleaning routine, even outside of Thanksgiving, you should find that your laundry room stays fresh and must-free.
It’s easy to skip over this crucial room while reviewing your Thanksgiving cleaning checklist. However, eliminating soap scum and deodorizing the space will keep you and your guests happy and feeling clean.
