Quick Clean a House

How to fake clean a house (or what to do when your house is a wreck and company is coming in 15 minutes).

Family Room: Stack books and magazines in neat piles or place in a decorative basket. Drape a blanket over the sofa to create an inviting atmosphere. Arrange throw pillows to hide stains. Toss scattered toys into a tub or basket

Kitchen: Declutter refrigerator by removing notes, drawings, etc and placing in a shoe box (sort at a later date). Refold kitchen towels with the clean side out. Boil cinnamon and orange peels to cover food smells

Bathroom: Use a lint roller to pickup hair. Hang fresh towels. Use your robe to cover the damp towels on the back of the door. Gather counter clutter (cosmetics, etc) into a stylish basket. Light a candle

Remember: Your friends came to see you, not your house!

Good tips! Here's a funny one: My sister,upon getting a short notice visit,quickly plugged in the vacuum cleaner, sprayed a little Pledge into the air, greeted the visitors with her apron on,dustcloth in hand and said, "Oh, you caught me right in the middle of cleaning!"
