Apply anti-stain varnish on your walls and furniture

Anti-stain varnishes can be easily purchased at the nearest hardware store. Applying such products on your walls effectively makes them stain proof for a while. Your walls and furniture are the most susceptible to Holi colours, so it would be wise to put some anti-stain varnish on them to keep them protected. 

Apply oil on all your doorknobs

Doorknobs are the first thing that anyone touches when they are entering a house. When you are fully drenched in Holi colours, you end up staining your doorknobs without even realizing it. If you apply oil on your doorknobs, it will be easier to clean up the colours the day after Holi 2020. 

Keep your sofas and tables covered

Keep your sofas, chairs, and tables covered with a plastic wrap this Holi to prevent them from getting stained. Do not use cloth wraps, especially if you are fond of them, as cloth wraps can get ruined if they come in contact with Holi colours. You can also use spare newspapers to safeguard your furniture this Holi 2020. 

Avoid using sinks to wash up and try bathing in the balcony

Do not wash your coloured face or hands in the sink. Touching your tap with colours hands can stain them and the colour can also stain your sink surface. Go directly to the shower and take a bath. If you have a balcony or front/back yard, try bathing over there to prevent your bathroom floor from getting stained with Holi colours.
