How to Conquer Sticky Honey Spills with Patience

Honey spills are without a doubt the worst spill you’ll ever have to clean up in your entire life. Although it’s sweet and deliciously tasteful it can make quite the mess for you if spilled out of the jar. The challenging part is how to clean it up without making an even bigger mess.

The key to cleaning up any spill is having patience. Or at least a little bit of patience. Or schedule a professional maid service NYC. That way you’re not flustered and end up creating a bigger mess to clean up. And you want to clean the spill right away to avoid hardening and staining.


What you’ll need:

Cleaning up your honey spill

Method Number 1

The first thing you want to do is take your sponge and soak it in a bowl of hot water. Not lukewarm water, but hot water. This is why you’ll need your cleaning gloves to prevent third-degree burns on your hands. Depending on how long you let the spill sit you may even have to pour some boiled water over it.

After you’ve let you sponge soak in the hot water you can take it to your honey spill. Squeeze some hot water out over the honey then place the sponge over it allowing it to soak up the honey accordingly. Repeat the process until the honey spill is gone.

Method Number 2

Begin by boiling some hot water and pouring it over the sticky patch of honey that spilled. Then cover the water and honey with a couple of paper towels. And lastly, cover the paper towel with saran wrap.

Allow 10 to 15 minutes to pass before removing the saran wrap and paper towel. It should all be removed together, the wrap, the paper towel, and the honey. If you find that some of the honey is still stuck on the surface you might need to repeat the process one more time.

Pro Tip: If you let the spill sit for too long and it’s already hard try using a knife to cut off some of it off. 

Final Analysis

When it comes to cleaning up honey spills, what it really comes down to is a lot of hot water and a little bit of elbow grease. In this case, no amount of harsh toxic chemical will help you. Nothing cuts hardened honey like hot water.
