Cleaning List Before Guests Arrive

By the guests’ arrival, everything should be perfect: the washed tulle, the floors perfectly polished, the clothes neatly folded on the shelves. But what if guests are coming in an hour, and you just came home from work? Surely there won’t be enough energy or time for spring cleaning. Meanwhile you are already thinking about canceling the meeting. Luckily, today we’ve prepared an essential cleaning list before your guests arrive.

Cleaning List Before Guests Arrive

Don’t be discouraged, there are several places that don’t have to be highly polished, because guests won’t even pay attention to them. Cook It is going to tell you which corners in the house you don’t need to clean out, but set aside for the day of spring cleaning and save half an hour. In the meantime, rest for 5 minutes and don’t cancel the dinner.

The Windowsill

It is unlikely that you have a finger-thick layer of dust on it, your friends will come to talk with you and won’t pull back the curtains and run a finger along the windowsill. Even if a mother-in-law is invited to dinner, she would rather focus on your cooking skills than on revising your house in search of dust. Perhaps she’d like to do this, but etiquette won’t allow it.

The Closet

Guests can pay attention to the closet only if it’s brand new and they’ve come to celebrate its purchase. Then, of course, it will be necessary to show how roomy it is. At other times, if you shove all the clothes in the closet, it will hold the line and won’t give you away, and guests won’t dare to open it without permission.

Household Appliances

If you don’t plan on heating anything in the microwave, washing it is pointless: just close the door and forget about it. But if the fat accumulated in it doesn’t let you rest, and a feast in the kitchen and you are afraid that guests will see “this nightmare”, there is a quick way to clean it. Pour water and lemon juice (or citric acid) into a glass (1: 1) and set the timer for 5 minutes. The microwave will clean itself, it remains only to wipe it with a rag.

The Bathroom

The toilet, of course, needs to be highly polished! However there’s no need to wash the bathroom if the guests come just for dinner. Close the shower curtain and wash the basin. Well, if you have time and just don’t want to leave it this way, you can easily remove hard water build up from your shower or faucet: pour vinegar into a plastic bag and attach it with an elastic to the faucet or shower head so that they are immersed in liquid. And while you wash the bath, the build up will disappear.

The Bedroom

Then again, if friends come for dinner, they don’t just go into the bedroom or nursery. If the apartment is one-room and the entertaining is in there, throw things in the closet. To remove the unpleasant smell from the furniture, mix water and vodka 1: 1 in a spray bottle and spray the furniture with it. If there are any pets in the house, you can run with a brush or a lint roller to remove the hairs. By the way, hairs can be quickly removed with a squeegee or rubber gloves.

Curtains or louvre shutters don’t need to be touched on the day of the party, unless you have a spare. By the way, for the curtains or clothes to dry faster, set the air drying mode in the washing machine, after putting a dry towel in there. It absorbs excess moisture, and things dry out faster.

Cleaning on a weekend sometimes takes up all the free time, and instead of relaxing, you have to polish the whole house. However, now you have these tips and we hope they will help you manage your free time better in the future.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
