Have houseguests coming? Get a handle on the holidays with these great ideas for keeping dirt and chaos under control with company in mind.


Guest Bedroom: This is the most likely the first place your company will go to plop themselves and their belongings down. Before they arrive, wash the bed sheets in warm or hot water with a capful of white vinegar to ensure they are fresh. While the sheets are in the dryer, give the room a quick one-over, like dusting the side tables and setting out clean towels. And then to finish, replace the bedding and fluff the pillows to make your next guests feel comfortable and welcome.

Burst Cleaning: If a room is mostly picked up go in, scan the room and pick up those little overlooked things and see what a difference it makes in the room. You will be surprised how many little things there are laying around and out of place in your house. If everything has a place, then you will quickly notice what needs to be moved and where.

Clean the Three T’s: Toilets, Tabletops, the Television. What? The television? That’s right! Most living rooms are centered around your tv and the amount of dust that hangs on it, your netflix stack and dvd box set pile that’s off to one side could be tell tale signs of why the rest of your house isn’t exactly spotless. Plus if you sit chatting in the living room, you’ll be staring at it wishing you would have moved it. Toilets and tabletops are a bit more self explanatory, but important none the less.

Think Sink: Stop pretending you’re going to rinse those dishes piling up on the counter, and load them in the dishwasher (or if not, at least stack them neatly in the sink). Run some water over drippy detergent bottles, then stick those, pot scrubbers, and rubber gloves under the sink.

Of course, we all have better things to do than deep clean the house – like spending time with family and friends.
