The best part of life is sharing it with those you love around you. Yet, we have this guilt when it comes to showing our friends and family a dirty house. We understand. That is why we have put together pre-party clean-up tips.
Our your energy in the rooms people will see. Don’t worry about reorganizing your closet, or the kid’s playroom if those aren’t going to be used or seen during the party. Instead concentrate on the living room, kitchen, and main bathroom, the most common rooms.
It’s not just what people see but what they smell that leaves an impression. Make sure to take out all trash and light some candles. This will help mask any odors. Another great tip is to put some lemon juice down the kitchen disposal to help prevent the sink from smelling too.
First, start with trash and unneeded clutter. Then put away anything that doesn’t have an immediate purpose. Sometimes junk drawers come in handy. Out of sight, out of mind is what helps here. For the kitchen, put away any unused appliances on the countertop. This helps give the illusion of space and cleanliness.
