Halloween is right around the corner and for many families, this means staying out all night enjoying the thrill and excitement October 31st brings. Halloween is a time for kids to have fun with their friends and gather as much candy as possible. However, for many parents, this time of year can be stressful, as many kids are using face paint, fake blood, makeup, and other things that can stain your carpet. How do you protect your carpets from these costume accessories?
There are a few things parents can do to make sure their carpets are not ruined by the creativity of kids on Halloween:
1- Only use paint, makeup, and fake blood on tile or hardwood
Limiting the use of these products around carpet will significantly decrease the chances of stains. Tile and hardwood floors are easy to clean, and there are no fibers for items like paint to stick to.
2- Help your children when using products that can stain
You can still prevent stains without tile or hardwood floors. Helping your children apply makeup, face paint, and fake blood can also reduce the chances of these products getting into your carpet. If needed, you can take the fun outside, or even use a trash bag or plastic table cloth to place on the floor to protect your carpets.
