The Panic Clean by Sonia Nunez, Motherhood Incorporated

by: Sonia Nunez 

If you have unexpected company coming, there are some things you can do to make your house at least look and feel clean, even if you don’t have time for a full cleaning.

 Grab a laundry basket or similar container and run through the front rooms picking up clutter.  Remember to go through the basket later and put things where they belong – you don’t want to lose that heating bill or favorite paperback! Do a quick clean of the bathrooms – use a paper towel and window cleaner to wipe down the faucets, sink, and mirror.  Use a wet rag to wipe the counter.  Close the shower curtain to hide the tub.  Spray the toilet and clean it quickly; take your used rag and wipe down the seat, lid, and tank.   Only vacuum the rooms your guest will see; you can also quickly vacuum the kitchen and bathroom floors to get up any dirt there.
