Clean Spilled Glitter Right Away
One drawback to crafts is the mess that can be made as you and your children participate in them. This is especially true if you are working with glitter. Glitter can be a gigantic pain to thoroughly clean up. Today Tough Carpet Cleaning is going to give you some tips on how to clean glitter off of the different surfaces of your home. No matter what surface the glitter is on you will want to clean up the mess as soon as possible. The longer that the glitter sits, the more it will get tracked to other parts of your house. If you are not careful you could end up with glitter in every room in your home. As soon as you notice a glitter mess get the supplies needed to pick it up and get to work.
Vacuum Glitter on Carpet
If glitter gets on your carpet you will want to get your vacuum out. Vacuuming will get up much of the glitter. Slowly and repeatedly vacuum over the affected areas for best results. Once you are done vacuuming you will likely still have some glitter left on your carpet. Now get some tape out. The thicker the tape is, the better it will work. Wrap tape around your fingers with the sticky side out. Then use it to pat up the glitter remaining on your carpet.
Sweep Glitter from Tile & Wood Floors
Go and grab your broom if you find a pile of glitter on your tile and wood floors. Sweep up as much of the glitter as you can. When you sweep the glitter into the dustpan we recommend that you empty the dustpan in an outdoor garbage can to help avoid further spreading of the glitter. Once you are done with the broom rinse off the broom so that it does not transfer onto the next surface that you sweep. There will likely still be some glitter on our floors at this point. Use a wet cloth to get the rest of the glitter off of the floor.
