Company Coming? Ten Tips to Tidy Your Home Fast


in Just For Moms

Are you having a big party? Do you need to clean your home in a matter of minutes before your friends arrive? What can you do? Don’t panic, there is a solution and it’s not as hard as you might think, here are ten tips to tidy your home fast:

Tip # 1 – Blow It

Dust collects on anything and if you don’t dust regularly, it will start to pile up. Before your guests arrive, grab your hairdryer and quickly blow dry everything. A hair dryer will quickly blow the dust off everything, especially the things that are hard to clean like artificial plants and DVDs. The other great thing about a blow dryer is that it can quickly remove things like bread crumbs and other things. They will get blown to the floor where you need to clean them again, but at least they aren’t in a noticeable area like the kitchen countertops.

Tip # 2 – Toss It

Before your guests come over, grab a garbage sack and run all around the home. Toss all the trash that is piling up on the floor or on countertops. Make sure you take out all of the garbage from the home too or else it will look tacky when your guests come over.

Tip # 3 – Pick it Up

All the toys, dog treats, and other things that are lying all over the floor have a rightful place. Pick them up and put them in their correct place. A simple pick-me-up to your home is the best way to tidy it up quickly.

Tip # 4 – Erase It

Do you have skid marks and other marks on the walls? Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are the solution for practically everything that you can’t get rid of with other cleaning solutions. Crayons and fingerprints will come up quickly if you have a Magic Eraser.

Tip # 5 – Stow It

If you have stuff all over the home, start putting it away in a closet or other rooms. Be sure to shut the door to the room because you definitely don’t want your guests to see them when they are over for the party. Get your kids or your spouse to help you out to get everything put back in the right places.

Tip # 6 – Do the Dishes

A great way to tidy your home is to quickly do the dishes. You can clean all the dishes up with soap and water or you can simply stick them in the dishwasher. This is the quickest way to hide a big mess in the kitchen.

Tip # 7- Vacuum It

Vacuuming your home is the best way to freshen it up quickly. Use a little baking soda on the carpet to absorb any of the odors that are lurking around. Vacuuming your home will easily pick up dirt and other stuff that is lying around and it makes your home look nice and tidy in a matter of minutes.

Tip # 8 – Freshen It

Your guests will certainly appreciate it if you spray a little air freshener throughout your home. Be sure to spray it in rooms like the bathroom and the kitchen. You might consider lighting a candle or using a candle warmer to keep your home smelling fresh.

Tip # 9 – Wipe it Off

Grab a wet towel and wipe down your kitchen countertops and the bathroom countertops. It’s an easy way to tidy up your home quick.

Tip # 10 – Sweep It

Hurry and sweep up the kitchen if you notice there are some crumbs. A Swiffer WetJet mop is a simple way to quickly brighten up your kitchen.

These are very good and useful tips but I still hate Cleaning :S
cleaning process is a very tiring process …. I also hate the dust :/
I also think that applying these tips needs time .. sometimes u need to save time as well as money… last March I needed to clean my house and I dealt with princess maid services company and I think it is also money saving , they did very good work and I didn’t have to pay too much money.
Thanks again for your tips … keep the great work up
