4 Tips on How to Quickly Clean the House
Are you in stress mode when you get the unexpected phone call that family is coming by in ten minutes, but the house is a total mess? Here are tips on how to get the house in order before your guest arrive.
According to an article at apartmenttherapy.com, “Unexpected Guest Arrive When the House is a Mess”
“1. Clean the Three T’s: Toilets, Tabletops, and the Television. What? The television? Yup! Most living rooms are centered around your TV and the amount of dust that hangs on it, your Netflix stack and DVD box set pile that’s off to one side could be tell-tale signs of why the rest of your house isn’t exactly spotless. Plus if you sit chatting in the living room, you’ll be staring at it wishing you would have moved it. Toilets and tabletops are a bit more self-explanatory, but important none the less.
2. Stash with Efficiency: When company drops in we’ve all been in a situation once or twice where things get tossed in a basket and shoved in the spare bedroom or closet. It’s a quick solution, but it can be done with more efficiency so you can find your stuff later on. Add things to your basket according to the room they go in. That way when company leaves, you can remove the items easily without making 100 trips across your house or apartment to put things where they belong.
3. Pet Hair: Even if you have a sparkling clean house, if your sofa is covered with a layer of dog or cat fur, it suddenly looks less tidy. Keep a rubber glove or your favorite pet hair busting product on hand to knock it all down in a few sweeps.
4. Dishes Be Gone in Seconds Flat: Please don’t judge me for this tip. Admitting that I’ve done it more than once is punishment enough alright? So here goes. Put your dishes in your oven. Wait, what? If you pile your dishes in the sink then it looks like you threw them all in there at the last minute as everyone knows you can’t really wash dishes in that manner and you’ll still look like a slight slob, even though you have clean counters. Instead, grab a baking sheet and stack like items together and slide them in the oven.” To read the entire article click here.
