You’ve just received notice that Guests are on their way to see you. The house is a mess.
Don’t panic. You can quickly fix the places that guests go – your entry, your bathroom, your kitchen, your lounge
How long before your guests arrive?
You have 30 minutes before they arrive
Open the windows to get a blast of fresh air
Fix up your entry. Straighten the doormat. Quickly sweep away stray leaves etc.
Dab some essential oil onto a rag and wipe it over your door.
Get a laundry basket, or a box, or a garbage bag and head for the bathroom.
Put a new toilet roll in the toilet (put the half-used one in your container of choice). Drop a bit of cleaner in the bowl – flush – then drop a little detergent in
Scoop up all used towels, clothes, from the bathroom and dump into your container. Place a new cake of soap in the sink and the old one can go in the container too.
Quickly wipe around the basin. Wipe around the mirror. Set out fresh hand towels. Wipe a little essential oil around the door.
Put the box/basket into a room that the guests won’t see
Quickly hide commercial packaging in your kitchen.
Wipe benches and table tops
Hide the detergent and wash brush. If you don’t want to put them in a closed cupboard, carefully lay a clean teatowel over them. Just get them out of sight
Time’s almost up. Close the windows.
