Preparing for guests is something we all have to do. If you’re like me, you do it at the last minute. My life is super hectic so most of the time any cleaning takes place right before people are coming over. Don’t get me wrong; my house isn’t a sty. It’s just lived in. When guests come over, though. I like it to look put together. All it takes are a few steps to make preparing for guests super fast and super easy.
Preparing for Guests – The Last Minute Dash
So it’s down to it. The last minute dash. Those last 10 minutes before your best friend, your mother-in-law or a business associate is scheduled to show up, and your house is still in disarray. AAAAHHHH! Fear not, there are some easy ways to get your home guest-ready in next to no time.
Get the Dishes
No matter how spic and span your home is, dirty dishes can make you look like a slob. Make sure the dishes are washed and put away ASAP. It’ll make everything look neater, more put together, and cleaner in general.
Pick Up the Random
Random items float around my home like flotsam on the ocean. I have a daughter, a dog, and a husband, so random objects kicking around is standard fair in my house. Another quick way to help you in preparing for guests is to get all your child’s toys, your dog’s toys, and your husband’s random stuff off the floor. It doesn’t matter if it all gets thrown in a closet, just get it off the floor. 😉
Scented candles don’t help you clean, but they are ideal for preparing for guests. A scented candle adds a nice, cozy feel to your home. Just make sure your guests don’t have any allergies or sinus issues, or it may be a torture chamber instead of Heaven for their nose.
