Whether it would be dry or wet stains, painting the walls as well as losing the natural beauty of your wall decorative accessories could be an expensive offer.

A Pro Tip: Mix 1 cup of white vinegar, one-quarter cup of club soda and warm water. After the solution is ready, simply dip in the sponge to wipe the stains from walls and related accessories. Make sure the soda used isn’t concentrated much, which can lead to affect the color and beauty of walls.

Living Room Furniture


Your living room is the welcoming zone for the guests during the festivals. Thus, we decorate it with bright, colorful hues to add a zing and draw the attention of many eyeballs.

And you all know that, Holi is the time to visit everyone’s home, enjoy some lip-smacking dishes and sweets, play with colors and celebrate to the fullest. As, this occasion is all about new beginnings! Hence, removing out all the color stains from your expensive furniture like sofa, lounge chair etc. could be a troublesome task.

A Pro Tip: Clean your wooden furniture with varnish to keep the color of the wood finish intact. Also, for upholstered furniture, try soaking the affected area in white vinegar for about 15 minutes and then wipe it off with a cotton ball. Make sure you dry the area well afterwards to avoid fungal growth. If the furniture like center table, dining table or nest of tables has a glass surface, then use a mixture of water and baking soda to wipe off the stains.



Why should your floor remain plain and unattractive during the Holi Ustav? It’s time to decorate them with beautiful and stunning rugs and carpets. We know that it is the most painful task to clean up the rugs and carpets after Holi as colors inevitably leave stains on, making them look dirty. But, thankfully not to worry now, as we are here to help!
