Cleaning Up After Halloween Celebrations 

Halloween is a time for fun and indulgence, but what happens when the celebrations are over and you’re left with a mess to clean up? Don’t let the post-Halloween cleanup overwhelm you. With a little planning and organisation, you can quickly and efficiently clean up after the festivities.


Cleaning up after Halloween celebrations doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By following a few simple tips and tricks, you can tackle the mess and restore your home to its pre-Halloween state. From disposing of candy wrappers to storing decorations, this article will provide you with the guidance you need to make the post-Halloween cleanup a breeze.

Take Down the Halloween Decorations 

Before you can sweep, mop, and dust you must remove all your Halloween decorations. Take down your wall hangers and store them separately from the smaller items. We recommend placing wall hangers, faux spider webs, and large cutouts in big plastic bags to protect them. 


Place smaller decorations such as plastic spiders, snakes, and eyeballs in ZipLock bags so they don’t go missing. 

Recycle All Your Halloween Junk

Halloween is all about munching on candies and playing spooky games. Throughout the evening you and your friends may have accumulated plenty of junk such as sweet wrappers, paper plates, and more. 


Pick up all the junk around your home and sort them so you can place them all in the correct recycling bins. There may also be plenty of beer cans and bottles that you can also recycle. Or use these items to make next year’s Halloween decorations. 

Wipe Down All Surfaces

During the celebrations, you and your friends may have spilled drinks on countertops or messed up crumbs all over them. You’ll need to wipe down all your surfaces to remove sticky residue, oil, food, and debris. 


The fastest way to wipe away dirt and grime and kill germs and bacteria at the same time is to wipe down surfaces using Zoflora wipes. These wipes come in a small pack so you can walk around the house with them in hand to clean tabletops, counters, and bedside tables.


Zoflora wipes are also biodegradable so they’re environmentally friendly. What’s more, they come in a variety of fragrances. 

Clean Your Floors

When throwing a Halloween party at your house, a venue, or even a club, the floors will look the worst. People spill their drinks on the floor and then walk over the mess. You’ll most likely have black shoe prints all over your floors. 


To clean your floors, ensure you use the right mop for the type of floors you have. Then fill a bucket with cold water and add two caps of Zoflora concentrate. Dip your mop into the water, wring it out, and begin mopping your floors from the top and end where an exit is present. 


The Zoflora concentrate not only removes tough stains and dirt but it will also kill all bacteria and fungi on the floor’s surface. 

Use Halloween Fragrances 

Even though Halloween is over you can still use Halloween-inspired fragrances around your home to make it smell fresh and inviting. There are several autumn fragrances that Zoflora has to offer such as Winter Spice and Warm Cinnamon. 


Spray your fragrance of choice on your curtains or upholstery. The advantage of Zoflora is that the fragrances last for up to 24 hours. 

Clean Your Outdoor Area 

Many people decorate their outdoor areas for Halloween. If you’ve decorated your outdoor area you may need to throw away broken decorations and sweep the floors. You can clean plastic decorations by soaking them in Zoflora. If you’ve made jack-o-lanterns, smash them up into smaller pieces and feed them to the birds.
