Focus on Cleaning These Areas When You Have Last-Minute Guests

Kristin Wong , Gawker Media

If you have last-minute houseguests, you might be stressed at the idea of cleaning your whole house last-minute, too . Here's an idea: don't. As Apartment Therapy points out, there are only three areas to clean in order to make your place presentable.

Apartment Therapy makes a good case for cleaning just the following before impromptu guests arrive: the toilet, glassware, and the sofa. Your guests will most likely use the bathroom, after all, so it's worth a quick wipe down. Then, make sure the sofa is decluttered and free of pet hair so your guests have a comfortable place to sit and, of course, you want clean glassware for pouring drinks.

Obviously, this is general advice and your own priorities may be a little different. For example, the litterbox is the first thing I think about when I know people are coming over. It's good overall advice, though, and the full post is worth checking out at the link below.
