Many Australians have a habit of visiting their friends, family members and relative unexpectedly, without any prior notification. Have you also faced similar situations before? When you have to host unexpected friends and family members for a few days that are visiting your town for various businesses?
If yes, then how well-prepared are you as a host? And how clean and tidy is your home for some unexpected guests?
Here are a few tips that will help you get your home ready for last minute guests and visitors.
Put Your Energy Where It Is Most Needed
Focus your main efforts in the area where you think a lot of time will be spent by your guests. For example, if living room is that area, then focus on it and put more efforts to clean it. Get some new & fresh flowers and put them in little vases located at different places in your home, especially in living room. These will look pleasant and smell good, too.
You don’t need to invest hours working to get these rooms look perfect and clean, there are a few alternate routes you can use, for example, putting a sock on your hand for rapidly wiping & rubbing surfaces down, utilising big boxes and containers for tossing dirty laundry into, or just tossing useless things in a room that visitors won’t be entering during their stay, for example, storeroom or garage. However, working rapidly and completing things while you’re motivated, will help you feel more casual and stress-free before the visitors arrive.
Proper Lighting In The Room
It’s surprising how cleaner a room can look if it’s lit in the right manner – Dimly! It becomes a lot difficult to spot dust in dim light, however it will help to make a welcoming shine for visitors. Utilise lamps to make the impact, or light a few candles for a milder, flashing sparkle.
Clean Your Bathroom
Your bathroom is a room that your unexpected guests will be visiting a lot, and there could be nothing more humiliating than a dirty messy toilet, a soap dispenser that’s empty, or residue in the shower! Convenient disposable antibacterial wipes can make most restrooms to look and smell fresher, regardless of the fact that they truly require a profound clean. What your guests don’t know hopefully won’t hurt them a bit! Purchase a scented diffuser to make the room smell good, or even light some scented candles and keep them somewhere safe.
If bathroom cleaning is something you don’t want to do, then hire professional to get your bathroom clean quickly. Don’t worry, the professional pressure cleaners won’t take much time to do their job and finishes the work before your guests arrive.
