Hacks To Make Your House Completely Clean
You have to keep your whole house clean. Reduce your stress by planning to clean your home quickly to be ready for your guests.
They are organizing Thanksgiving and preparing for the food for weeks. You have everything ready and ready to greet your guests when you realize that the house is a mess! They are so busy planning, inviting and preparing everything that the housekeeping slipped a bit. And now you are preparing to greet the guests and need a thorough plan for quick cleaning.
Too busy, too little time!
If the clock and calendar are not your friends, you need to set priorities for cleaning your home. You do not have time to clean every corner, every cupboard, and every bedroom. You must use your time wisely and clean the rooms that your guests will see and spend time in.
Watch out the next time you visit a friend’s house. Do you inspect their floors and ceilings? Probably not. Most of your guests will look at eye level. You want to concentrate your cleaning efforts from the waist to the head level.
Stay in motion!
Make a plan and stay with the task. You are hosting Thanksgiving, your guests spend most of their time in your foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen, and bathroom. These are the areas that need your attention. Before guests arrive, they’ll pull the doors to cupboards, bedrooms, and other areas you do not need for your guests. Do not be derailed by a cleaning or organizational task that can wait until after the company. Remember that the clock is ticking!
Where should I start?
Try to follow the will of your guests. In your foyer and living room, the most important thing is to eliminate the mess. You do not have time to organize paperwork, but you have time to put loose mail in a basket with a lid or a small drawer. The same goes for your old magazines, if you have stacks of them, recycle them, or stash them. Additional coats, shoes, and outerwear that have accumulated in your foyer can be stowed in a closet or in a bedroom that you do not show your guests.
Place a duster over your coffee tables, TV stands, and other surfaces where your guests drink or gather. A quick loosening of the pillows and the folding of the blankets and these areas should make the note for your guests. If you have pets, you may need to spend a little more time deburring the furniture.
The Center Of The House
If you have a party before you know people are gathering in the kitchen. It could be the smallest room in the house, but we’re all dressed in it anyway! It seems like this room is difficult to clean as you are in the middle of preparing for Thanksgiving. But you can also do some things to make it shine.
Since you will most likely have many people in your kitchen, you will get rid of the rest of the extra “stuff”. Again, the disorder is the enemy. Clear as much of your counter and tabletops as possible. Devices that remain unused are a good place to start. Do not get lost in organizing paperwork, but stash your loose prescriptions and papers in a less frequented closet or drawer. Just do not forget where you put them!
Wipe your faucet, sink, front of the refrigerator and worktops to remove water stains and sticky spots. Guests will not blame you for stuffing spilled water during Thanksgiving preparation, but they can judge if they’ve put their hand of yesterday into lunch.
Suction selectively. Run with your vacuum cleaner through high traffic areas. Make sure you catch loose furs from the family pet. Do you want to save time while vacuuming? Vacuum the lower part of the stairs and do not pull the vacuum all the way up. The lower levels are the most traveled and most visible to your business.
Go through and collect garbage from all your cans and replace them with fresh can ends. Refresh your room by lighting some seasonal candles.
