Front Porch Entertaining: Tips For Cleaning Old Houses with Grove Collaborative

 

 

BEFORE:


Clean Off the Furniture Pieces: From wood to wicker, it is important to clean off your outdoor furniture for front porch entertaining. I would recommend these two items:

Meyers Fall Spray

Grove Multisurface Cleaner

Walnut Scrubber Sponges

Wipe Down the Walls:

On a historic home, especially wood home, it is important to maintain your exterior and if outdoor painting is not in your budget, you must definitely wipe the walls for your fall entertaining season. I used the following products to some spot treatments on your front porch wall:

Mrs. Meyers Multisurface Cleaner 

Grove Collaborative Limited Edition Fall Towel

 

Clean the Windows:

It is important to take the time to clean your windows of any home, especially a historic home which may have very intricately designed windows. My home also has three front doors with stained glass and although they are not clear, be sure to add stained glass to your list of items to clean. These items were helpful for full window cleaning:

Seedling by Grove Tree-Free Paper Towels

Grove Collaborative Cleaning Concentrate Window Cleaner

Grove Collaborative Glass Spray Bottle with Silicone Sleeve

 

 

Keep the Products Organized and Easy to Access

As a busy new mom, I am constantly misplacing things and cleaning products are top of that list. When you get your Grove product,  be sure to store them in a container where you will remember and that is stylish enough to leave out for easy access.

 

Enjoy Some Family Time Now That You Have Cleaned!

Half the reason I use Grove is that it allows me to save time. Prepping the baby, traveling to the store from my small town and shopping can literally take up precious hours of my busy life and I would much rather spend those with my family. Once you have prepared your historic home for fall entertaining, be sure to enjoy it with the ones you love!

 

Hope you enjoy these tips for cleaning old houses and be sure to check out Grove Collaborative for the new customer give with this special link just for fans of Black Southern Belle:  www.grove.co/blacksouthernbelle
