4 Ways to Prepare for Entertaining Accidents (What to Do Before)

Every year, I have the privilege of opening up my home to my large family for a few days. This entertaining opportunity is something I really look forward to! We laugh, eat and just enjoy each other’s company. However, entertaining can be stressful so I’m always looking for tips and tricks to make things easier for me. One thing is for sure…accidents will happen. I’ve always found that preparation beforehand for messes is key. Thankfully, Persil® ProClean® Laundry Detergent is giving me all the confidence I need to tackle messes quickly and efficiently. With Persil laundry detergent and some other essentials, here’s how you and I can stand up to life’s messy moments. 

1. Expect that accidents will happen.

No matter the crowd size, pesky messes are bound to happen. However, one key in helping prepare beforehand is to expect accidents. Sounds too simple, right? It might sound simple until someone spills wine on your white sofa. Ah, yes, here is where expectation and planning come in. Adjusting your mind frame BEFORE accidents happen will minimize you and your guests stress level. With a little planning, you’ll be ready to deal with life’s messy moments. No one is planning on having an accident, they just happen. Knowing this will help you be a happier hostess. Plus, Persil laundry detergent helps remove wine and other hard to deal with stains from your favorite fabrics. Its stain-fighting enzymes break down stains to deliver an exceptionally premium clean. So, instead of worrying about messes, expect and prepare for them with Persil laundry detergent. The next time your white sofa gets stained, you can truly say “No, worries, I got that!”

2. Prepare in advance with Persil® ProClean® laundry detergent.

When I know I’ll be entertaining a large crowd, I make sure to pickup Persil® ProClean® Laundry Detergent and Persil® ProClean® Power-Caps® from Target. I like to have both on hand so that I have options when it’s time to deal with messes. The Persil Power-Caps® have the same stain-fighting power of the Persil liquid detergent in a small, convenient package, which helps makes laundry less of a chore. I like to pick up my Persil laundry detergent products at my local Target, on the laundry detergent aisle. Since I’m always picking up entertaining essentials from Target it makes sense to get my laundry supplies there too. 

Another thing I really like about Persil laundry detergent is the variety of scents. Not only can you see and feel the difference with Persil laundry detergent, but you can also smell it. The Pro10 Technology delivers 10 Dimensions of Clean for a premium clean and it breaks down built-in odors to keep your clothes smelling great. I prefer the Original scent, but there are other scents available at Target!

3. Deal with stains immediately.

When life’s messy moments happen, be sure to deal with them immediately. The sooner you deal with a stain, the better your chances are of fighting it. Stain removal can be tricky, but not complicated. Always follow product instructions and the cleaning instructions as mentioned on the fabric you’re treating. Be sure to rub the Persil laundry detergent into the stain and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then wash the stained item with a dose of Persil laundry detergent. Before drying, check the results. The key here is to deal with stains as soon as they happen. This will help you fight tough stains effectively!

4. Keep extra essentials ready to go.

Don’t let one little mishap deter you or your guests from having fun. As I mentioned, accidents will happen while you’re entertaining but remember preparation is key. Keep extra essentials ready to go. Clean and fresh tablecloths, napkins, towels, and other items should be ready to go in a basket or cabinet. Simply grab your basket and replace what was stained. No one will even notice the switch! There is no doubt that I cherish the time I can spend with my family. I truly enjoy taking care of them and entertaining each and every one of them. I will not let accidents and messes get in the way of the memories we make. My stress level is in check since I’ve prepared beforehand for any entertaining accidents. I’m feeling confident and ready to take on the task at hand.
