During this time of year, many of us have guests over for parties. Spills and other mishaps happen, and you don’t want accidents to ruin the party. Create an “emergency kit” before the party starts so you can fix the problem at a moment’s notice.

Apartment Therapy created a short list of things to have in a ready-to-go basket or caddy, including a sponge, small broom, spray cleaner, salt, stain stick, and a few other miscellaneous items.

Stain Solutions will tell you how to get out any stain and this infographic helps with Christmas stains, so check that out for ideas for items to add to the kit. I’d suggest vinegar and bicarb soda as a good starting point.

If you’re an accident-prone guest, keeping a kit like this in the car might make your host rest a bit easier, too. Hit the link for the full checklist.
