T'was The week Before Christmas

Go Hawks !

Marketing Team - Monday, December 12, 2016

  • December in Tri-Cities Washington…. What can you say about it, I mean besides the obviousness of the Holidays, the weather is pretty unremarkable. It is cold sometime damp, and almost always windy… and always grayish with little peeks of sun just to tease us about the wonderful weather we have the rest of the year.  Typically, this is the month we get our 1 skiff (and I mean it’s like Frosty the snow man blew his nose on us) of snow that last all of about 3-4 hours and then the winds melt it away.  #12sforlife

    But never fear!!! Because the Seahawks are PLAYING!!!!  WOOHOO!!!!! #GOHAWKS

    So let’s plan our next shindig/indoor tailgate! There are so many awesome ideas on Pintrest for tailgating and snacks and drinks that I don’t even know where to begin! #SEAHAWKS

    Some ideas that can go for just a family affair to a huge group of friends, things like meatballs or little smokies in some kind of sauce in the crock pot, or bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeños (one of my favorites), buffalo wings, veggie trays, meat & cheese trays, chips & dips galore!   #DrangeRussWilson

    My suggestion is to only pick 3 food items or 2 food items and a “bucket” drink or punch and then ask everyone else to contribute that way you can have fun watching the game as well and you don’t have to spend all morning cooking! #LOB

    For easy clean up, get plastic cups, silverware, napkins and plates in Green and Blue!  **Savings Tip*** They don’t have to be the expensive logo stuff, just go to the local Dollar store and get the colors!  Streamers and plastic table clothes also are a fun way to dress and room up. #12sRule

    An easy fun treat that you can make ahead of time is cupcakes.  Now here’s the fun part, surprise your guests by making them tie-dye, its super easy and fun to do. #skittleme

    All you need is 2 white cake mixes, mix them is 2 separate bowls just as directed. When complete add food coloring, for Seahawks, blue in 1 bowl green in the other. If you want to get tricky, take 1/3 out of each bowl before adding the coloring and place in a third bowl (so you will then have white, blue and green). Layer the colors in cupcake papers with a spoon. Should be 1 layer of each color. Then take a butter knife and drag through the mix slightly swirling the layers together, be careful to not mix too much as they will blend and look like mud. #Seahawks12thMan

    Then bake like normal. When done baking, let cool and then frost and decorate as you like! The tie-dye look will show when you bite into your cupcake! #lady12s

    Make sure to have your garbage can out in the open so people know where to place used plates and such. This will help in clean up after the game is over. #SeahawksNation

    For your viewing pleasure The Seahawks have 2 more games this month: #Go Hawks

    Los Angeles Rams (that’s still weird) on Dec 15th, 2016 in Seattle @ 5:25pm (PST)

    Arizona Cardinals on Dec 24th, 2016 in Seattle @ 1:25pm (PST)

Thanksgiving Dish & Drink Pairing

Marketing Team - Monday, November 21, 2016

When thinking about Thanksgiving, we have a lot of reasons to be thankful! Life, good health, living in a wonderful community, family, friends, the list could go on and on!  Here at Dura-Shine Clean, we know first-hand how crazy family dinners are, especially “BIG” family dinners like Thanksgiving.

Try something different this Thanksgiving by pair your drinks with dinner…. No matter what you drink, whether its wine, beer, cider or root beer floats, everything tastes better when paired properly. 

Here is a chart you can follow to help you pair your meal. Let us know what your favorite pairings were! 

Add A Washington Twist:
We are lucky to live in this area that has so many wines and craft beers! Have a true Washington Thanksgiving by pairing your food with local drinks instead!

After the Meal:
The worst part of big dinners is clean up!  No one likes to do the dishes, or clear the table. It’s funny to watch how fast the entire family can disappear or fall asleep at the exact moment that clean up starts.

It’s probably because no one wants to accept responsibility for the drink/food spills on Grandma’s lace table cloth or the white carpet!

For all stains the important thing is to get on it ASAP, the sooner the better, and remember to blot not rub or scrub (this only squishes the stain in worse). If the stains are pesky and refuse treatment, or if your home needs a thorough post-Thanksgiving clean, give us a call!
