Summer Entertaining: become a hub for impromptu BBQ


It’s summer time and we love to entertain. With my husband’s whole family living within a 5 minute walking distance of our home it is safe to say that our home has become a hub for impromptu BBQ’s and fancy dinners alike. OxiClean has teamed up with HGTV’s Sarah Baeumler to give you some tips on how to make your Summer entertaining as easy as possible.

    All great tips! I have used OxiClean for years and love it! I like the tip of having a set of white dishes for your entertaining, I purchased a set a couple years ago for that purpose and love that you don’t have to worry about the dishes matching what you want to do with the table.

    I love the Prep and Clean-Up Planter tip. I would have never thought to use OXI Clean on them. They’re always so grimy when I take them out of storage.

    nothing says class like crisp clean white sheets

  12. July 2, 2015 / 10:53 pm

    I completely agree and we have for some reason decided to use white for all of our linens and towels. Now even with the messy kids our whites stay white 🙂
