The Ultimate Halloween Cleanup Hack

October 27, 2023 by Kenmore

Halloween is just around the corner, and we all know what that means – spooky decorations, pumpkin carving, and Halloween crafts. But with all the fun comes the dreaded mess. Whether it’s cleaning up after creating Halloween crafts with the kids, hosting a Halloween party, or carving pumpkins, the mess can be haunting. But fear not, your trusty vacuum cleaner can come to the rescue! Let’s explore how you can use your vacuum cleaner to your advantage for your Halloween cleanup and make sure your home is spick and span.

The Glitter Getter

Crafting is undoubtedly an exciting activity with kids. However, the mess that comes with it can be a nightmare. When creating Halloween crafts with your little ones, consider keeping your vacuum cleaner on standby to clean up glitter, paper scraps, and other debris. Attach the crevice tool to your Kenmore FeatherLite™ Lift-Up® Upright Vacuum Cleaner and get ready for the mess to disappear. This will help leave your home clean and clutter-free after the crafting session.

The Party Prepper

Hosting a Halloween party is another fun activity during the holiday season. For last minute touch ups, grab the Kenmore Elite | CSV Max Cordless Stick Vacuum to quickly pick up dog hair or other debris. Once the party is over, it’s time to clean up the real mess. Whether it’s spilled wine from the parents or dropped candy crumbs from the kids, using your vacuum cleaner should be your go-to solution. Consider using the Kenmore SpotLite™ Portable Carpet Cleaner to lift stains from carpets + upholstery or attach the 3-in-1 combination tool to your CSV stick vacuum to pick up crumbs from within your couch cushions.

The Pumpkin Pulverizer

As for pumpkin carving, getting rid of seeds and pulp from your floors or carpets can seem daunting. Fortunately, the Kenmore All-Purpose Wet/Dry Canister Vacuum can help. Choose a nozzle with a narrow suction tube, and work your way around the pumpkin, picking up all the unwanted debris. Remember to empty your vacuum cleaner frequently to prevent clogging, and you’re good to go.
