I love the excitement that’s building as Super Bowl XLV approaches! For some it’s about the statistics—which team has won the most Super Bowls (Pittsburgh) and which team won the first time they played (Green Bay, 1967) and which team won the last time they played (Pittsburgh, 2009). For others, it’s about the stadium details, like what’s the playing surface (Matrix Synthetic Turf) or will the roof be open (no). Just about everyone loves the commercials, critiquing the half-time show, and noshing on wings, pulled pork sandwiches, chili with cheese and onions, meatballs, and the like. If it’s a jump-from-your-seat-and-scream game, don’t be surprised if you end up with a few stained items you’ll need to get clean!
The best defense is a good offense, so plan ahead if you are hosting and spread a white tablecloth over your buffet table, and add a few decorations in your favorite team’s colors. Don’t be tempted by disposable plastic table cloths that just get thrown away – reusable is always better, and having a good stain removal strategy will help.
Super Bowl party foods like chili, buffalo wings, pulled pork sandwiches, barbeque, and meatballs are notoriously greasy and colorful, so it’s best to treat the oily component first and the colored part of the stain second:
You may also have some beverage stains to remove:
Whether you’ll be cheering for the Green Bay Packers or Pittsburgh Steelers, I hope you have a super football-filled weekend!
