Easter Cleaning Tips with Bar Keepers Friend
April 6, 2022
For as long as I can remember parents have focused on ways to make sure their kids have fun on Easter. Easter baskets will be passed out, chocolate bunnies will be enjoyed, eggs will be dyed, and Easter egg hunts will be held. Then there’s the traditional Easter family dinner.
As fun as it call all be, chocolate bunnies, dyed eggs, and Easter dinner can all get messy. Here’s some of our Easter cleaning tips:
Easter Cleaning Tip #1: Cover Surface Areas When Dying Eggs
If you plan on dying eggs this coming weekend, you’re probably thinking of ways to keep messes to a minimum. Depending on how many kids you have in your household, you might be expecting a bigger mess than you would like. While the messes themselves (cracked eggs, ripped cartons and water cups) might be inevitable, the last thing you want to do is stain your tables, floors or other surfaces. To prevent those stains, we recommend covering any and all used surface areas with plastic table cloths or thick layers of newspaper. Covering surfaces will be especially helpful for swift cleanup of glitters.
Now, let’s say you accidentally do spill or drip dyes onto the floor or table. If you do, be sure to clean it up right away. BKF’s MORE Spray & Foam and a soft cloth can pick up those dyes fast. If, for some reason, those dyes sit on your table and stain, use a squirt of BKF’s Soft Cleanser and wipe away. Just be sure to test either cleaner on a small portion of the surface first.
Easter Cleaning Tip #2: Immediately Clean Up After Easter Dinner
Many “head chefs” of the family enjoy making their own feast. To ease the stress of post-holiday kitchen cleanup, we highly recommend doing as much cleaning as possible before dinner begins – or immediately after their first (maybe second) slice of pie. The reason for this is to ensure cleanup is easy and that it isn’t a hassle to wipe away stuck-on food.
If you find yourself with a ton of stovetop or cooktop sauce spills or grease splatters, you can use BKF’s Cooktop Cleaning Kit to wipe, scrub and scrape away all types of messes. The all-plastic scraper is especially helpful if you couldn’t get to those messes right away – allowing you to gently pry off stuck-on food without scratching surfaces.
Easter Cleaning Tip #3: Wipe Down Surface Areas Before Easter Egg Hunts
While in most towns there are organized Easter egg hunts, it can be fun to hold your own hunt! If your family plans on doing a small Easter egg hunt, you and your kids might be doing lots of crawling, digging, and sifting. Unfortunately, the weather this time of year doesn’t always cooperate.
If the weather looks shaky you can always hold your hunt inside! You’ll wanna make sure you don’t hide eggs that will be covered with dirt and grime. Yuck. So, before your indoors Easter egg hunt begins, take some time to wipe down your in-home egg hiding places.
While you’re on the hunt for dirt and dust in your home, if you decide to clean baseboards we recommend reaching for a can of our Powdered Cleanser or a bottle of our Soft Cleanser. If you choose to hide some eggs in your cabinets and cupboards, you might grab a bottle of BKF’s Granite & Stone Cleaner & Polish sprayed onto a microfiber cloth to wipe away any dust. In fact, it might be helpful at this time to review our What to Clean guide to determine the best BKF product for you!
