It's time to party. I mean, you really don't need me to list any reasons you should agree with that statement, but just in case you're in disbelief... It's summer, it's warm, the beach is in its prime condition... Okay, that's enough, just throw a party already.

Thelma Meyer, the uber mom of nine behind the brand Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day is all about hosting parties and making sure your guests don't even realize it was any work. The book she penned, out now, Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home: No-Nonsense Advice That Will Inspire you to Clean Like the Dickens, has some fantastic tips that will make your next soiree the ultimate summer memory!

You just got white patio furniture - you thought it was very Miami-esque at the time and now after your "A Night in Spain" Party, Sangria has left its mark. Meyer says to dilute a teaspoon of detergent in a cup of lukewarm water and blot out the stain. Then mix one part white vinegar and two parts water, blot again and sponge off - there's hope for the next party!

Visit and see the wonderful world of a true hostess from the Snap Pea Spring Cleaning Kit for only $7.50, to her All-Purpose Cleaner in five different scents. For my next Sunday brunchday, I will definitely be using some of Meyer's tips - might even scrub my patio cushions with mild soap and a scrub brush once and a while, good luck cleaning!
