With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to think about our good food and time with loved ones. Skyline/Gold Star Chili dip, sauces from LaRosa’s and Montgomery Inn, and Frisch’s pumpkin pie are Cincinnati classics. To help make sure less of that ends up on your carpets and upholstery, consider these tips.

  1. Use cloth tablecloths to help soak up/slow down spills so you can get to them before they run off the table. As soon as the party is over, pre-treat stains and let them soak in the washing machine overnight.
  2. Use sturdy plates. If it’s a party in Cincinnati, odds are someone’s going to make Cincinnati chili dip and sturdy plates helps to ensure the dip and chips don’t end up on the floor.
  3. Consider serving light-colored drinks for kids. Kids are fantastic. They bring us joy and we would do anything for them. But, let’s face it, they can be messy. Serving apple juice or white grape juice, instead of Concord or fruit punch, can make cleanups easier.
  4. Set out a real garbage can – a large one – instead of smaller cans or simply using plastic bags. A large can makes it easier for guests to hit their target and the can will contain leaks.
