Top Tips for Cleaning Up After the Office Party

Posted on 14th December 2015 by jask Media

This season sees the arrival of presents, good-will, and of course, Christmas parties. Celebrating Christmas with your colleagues is a great tradition, giving employees a chance to let their hair down and enjoy the festivities away from their desk! However, hosting the office party can be a stressful responsibility, and cleaning up afterwards can be even more overwhelming.
Here at Direct Cleaning, our professional cleaners know the tricks of the trade to ensure your office is back up to standard in no time, so we’ve listed a few of our top tips for cleaning up after the office party.

Christmas Party


When faced with the aftermath of the office Christmas party, it can be hard to know where to begin. We recommend starting by decluttering to clear out any waste, and free up surfaces to be wiped down.
Have separate bin bags for waste, paper, and glass recycling, and sort items as you go. Sorting out the waste as you declutter will get two jobs done at once, leaving you with a much clearer looking office already, and bin bags already prepared for the right waste bins!

Plan ahead

Planning for the clean up before the party may even begin may sound boring, but a little planning beforehand can go a long way when faced with the task of tidying up the mess! Place bins in convenient (but discreet) places throughout the party for paper plates and cutlery, and put out some trays for plates to be placed on when used. This will ensure a lot of the mess is already conveniently stacked when it comes to cleaning up.

Re-use leftover wine!

If you’ve got several bottles of wine left half full, a great way to ensure they don’t go to waste is to freeze the wine in ice cube trays. The cubes are great for any recipes that require wine adding to them, and ensure the money you spent on alcohol doesn’t go to waste!

It’s easy to wipe down surfaces and mop up any spills, but the smell of the party can linger a lot longer. Place some air fresheners around the office to replace any stale odours with a light and fresh smell – your colleagues will definitely thank you.
