How to Clean Up After Halloween
Spray-on Hair Dye
For machine-washable materials such as clothing, first, flush the stain with cold running water to push out as much stain as possible. Run the water through the backside of the stained material, pushing the stain away from the cloth. Then use a laundry pre-treatment product. Rubbing alcohol is also effective. For non-washable items, use cotton balls or a cloth to apply the rubbing alcohol to the stain. For hard surfaces, an abrasive cream cleanser and a scrub brush will work. Magic Erasers are also effective, however, be careful about scratching shiny surfaces.
Wigs can be washed like your hair: With shampoo. Use cool water and soak the wig instead of scrubbing. Rinse in cool water under the tap. To dry the wig, shake off the water, then lay it on a towel.
Make-up and Fake Blood
Rubbing alcohol is perfect for make-up that has been smeared on clothing. Fake blood is made from corn syrup and dye. Use rubbing alcohol.
Furry costumes can be also be washed with shampoo and cool water. To dry the suit, roll it up in towels to absorb as water, then air dry. For fur that’s matted, use the cool setting on a hairdryer.
Shout works well for removing chocolate stains from fabric. Spray a little on the stain and rub the fabric against itself. To remove chocolate stains from a sofa cushion, gently scrub with Shout.
Candy Ground into Carpet
Resolve carpet stain remover can be used on stains from candy that has been ground into rugs. For candy stuck in your car’s floorboards, use a strong vacuum or a scraping tool.
Start by picking up as much as you can with paper towels. Absorb the remaining moisture with paper towels. For the odor, sprinkle baking soda on the spot, allow it to sit for an hour, then vacuum.
