Unexpected guests are always a pleasant surprise, but it seems like everyone, inevitably, decides to stop by when the house (or, in my case, apartment) is at its worst. Don’t panic! Before shooing them out the door and off to a restaurant down the street, here are a few tips for quickly whipping your house into shape.
Focus your energy on the kitchen, since guests tend to congregate there (that’s where the food and the drinks are, after all!). Start by giving the sink a quick scrub, wiping sticky spills off the stovetop, and cleaning the counters. If you still have a few minutes to spare, sweep up any major dust bunnies and wipe down appliances like the refrigerator and the microwave.
