Quick! Company's Coming!

The phone rings! "Hi, thought we'd drop by for a minute......." You never hear a word after that, do you? Just lists of thing that HAVE to be picked up and cleaned QUICK!!!! Here are some helpful tips:


  1. Laundry baskets are your friends. Run through the house and pick up everything that is out of place and toss it in the basket!
  2. Pour bleach or Pine-sol down your kitchen sink drain. Makes it smell like you’ve been cleaning everything.
  3. Put out fresh towels in the Bath and Kitchen.
  4. Swish the toilet and wipe down the vanity.
  5. Kids are helpful. Use them. Bribe them with ice cream.
  6. Cram the dish washer as full as it will go.
  7. Give yourself a pat on the back.
  8. Spray scented oil or air freshener in the cold air return.
  9. Light some candles.
  10. Sweep the front entryway.
  11. Make coffee.

  1. I call this the 10 second tidy, which happens if I get a warning that some one is popping over!
