我丈夫臭名昭著，因为他在最后一刻让人们对我如痴如醉。就像，“宝贝，乔·施莫（Joe Schmo）要在20分钟内过来。”我的第一反应是吓坏了。我做的。然后可能会喃喃地说一些话。然后我环顾四周。是的20分钟？没门。我希望我可以说我的房子一直都很干净。但是事实是，它就像一年中的一天一样“完美无瑕”……也许。我全职工作，宝贝不断跑来跑去，使自己一团糟，而集线器也在跑来跑去，使他一团糟。然后有我...是的，我承认。我也弄得一团糟...更不用说我们的狗刚刚搞砸了。 :)无论如何，所以我为那些20分钟的访客建立了中国竟彩首页很棒的系统....我大概每周一次。我是认真的。...我的丈夫不了解计划，或者他只是忘记了告诉我，直到20分钟。如果也20分钟，我很幸运。也有10分钟的发言者。 ..是的，这就是中国竟彩首页字... 10分钟的访客... 10分钟的:)
My house is quite open so there's no way to just shut the door to the living room or kitchen or dining room. When you come 进入 the front door, you pretty much see 曾经ything....front room, stairs, hall, living room...walk a little bit further...dining room and kitchen.
因此，这些小技巧适用于半封闭式混乱的房屋。如果您手头一团糟，则可能需要更多时间。当我吸引到1小时的访客时，我会很喜欢，它给了我更多的时间，但仍然... 1小时？窗户？？ You can't get too much done in 那 amount of time, especially deep 清洁ing. I'm going to be very vulnerable here and show my deepest darkest secrets of my 乱 house...so don't judge :)..this is actually pretty contained compared to how it usually gets.
And yes. It does require complete attention on your part with no little ones interrupting and no stops for a sip of coffee...although you may need it lol. And yes, this will get your heart rate up. And as I said, this is how to FAKE a 清洁 house. So, a lot of these tips mean you actually have to 清洁 up afterward :) You'll see 什么 I mean by 那 as you read on. I've tried to put these in some sort of category, but they all 真实ly fall 进入 one category. 隐藏和半清洁...嗯，还有 伪装 ;）
The main thing is to pick up the 混乱 in only the rooms 那 people are going to see. 那 will make 90% of the impact, especially if you have a lot of stuff strewn about :)
- Clean only the rooms 那 people are going to see and trash the others. I'm serious on this. I usually have a stroller parked in the middle of the hallway. Huge toys 那 have no 真实 place to go except in the middle of 曾经ything. Laundry piled in the corner. Etc Etc. So, I just move all those 进入 my bedroom and shut the door. My bedroom and the laundry room are catchalls for 曾经ything 那 needs to be out of the other rooms. I know no one is going in them so it's a safe place to 隐藏 junk..I mean, stuff :)
|today the stroller has been exchanged for a large rug :) ...and here's a sneak peak 进入 my bedroom makeover. yes, the toys are staying :) jk|
- Storage containers are your best 朋友. Contain 混乱 in cute storage baskets, bins or other containers. For the baskets 那 over flow, just throw a cute blanket on top of them, then you can't see the 混乱 inside and it actually looks like its 只是中国竟彩首页用来存放毛毯的地方，这是完全时尚的:) ... aka 没有头的芭比娃娃不在篮子里。这些对畜牧电影，书籍，杂志，遥控器，邮件，随机性等也非常有用。
- I like to 隐藏 toys behind the couch. I love my sectional because it offers this whole 'out of site' 清洁ing. Where it looks 清洁 cuz you 即使在那里也看不到它。
- I also 隐藏 toys behind the arm of one of the couches in my front room...and sometimes I 隐藏 things behind 那 big chalkboard...
- 脏盘子..ugh。扔 如果洗碗机中的碗空了。这很费时间，所以就扔 如果您愿意的话，没有任何韵律或理由。如果您没有 洗碗机或洗碗机已满，然后将碗碟堆好 the sink. This usually makes it look like you have less 脏 dishes than if they were all thrown in there nonchalantly. This also helps if you have one of those nice cutting boards 那 cut over the sink, then just place 那 on top of all your dishes and then you can't see them :) Or if you 真实ly want to, put them in the oven. I have had many 脏 pots and pans in the oven at any given time...just don't forget about them lol
- 如果您的柜台上有邮件或随机物品，请将它们放在可爱的地方 篮子或盒子来容纳它。请确保稍后再整理 :)
- While we are on the kitchen, 清洁 the fridge and make it free from magnets and mess. Throw them in the box on the counter if need be for the moment. Or put them all on the side of the fridge 那 no one will see.
|And yep, you never see my kitchen because I hate it. Well, don't hate it, but I would rather have white cabinets but am freaked to paint these since they 真实ly are so nice...|
- Pick up obvious 混乱. Toys. Trash. Dishes. This will probably be like 50% of 什么 you do and make a 90% difference.
- Pick up the big pieces of lint/string/trash 那 you see on the carpet. Then you won't have to worry about vacuuming
- Sweep and don't mop unless you have obvious 脏 spots. Then just spot mop. Or...if you are like me...I rarely even sweep in these cases since I have wonderful tile 那 completely 隐藏s all dirt and dog hair.
- Make sure the counters and tabletops are 混乱 free. Wipe them down quickly.
- Get rid of dead flowers. This is my thing I always stress about forgetting because 真实ly, it's super inviting going to sit down next to some dried ol' nasty flowers :)
- If you have a microfiber couch, do this simple trick to pretty much 清洁 anything off of it...like 脏 little finger prints, random food debris 那 has been stuck on. This won't do much for liquid spills but you might as well try while your at it and see 什么 it ends up looking like. Just take a brush and scrub the heck out of the spots.
- If it's day outside, open the curtains and let the sun shine in. Makes for a brighter, 清洁er looking space.
I had NO idea the tops of these were this bad lol. Shows how much I turned these up, I never 曾经 see the tops at all. Maybe it's 那 time of
- Straighten the rug. Yes, 我不't understand how my rug 那 is on carpet moves constantly. But it does. So this sadly is one thing I always have to do and it drives me mad.
- 通过使它欺骗感官 smell like your house is 清洁 :) 使用微风。使用地毯除臭剂 如果你有时间。快点蜡烛。插入您的Scentsy。插入您的 Airwick或Glade插件。喷些喷雾剂。...一定不要使浴室变臭。我只需要说这句话，因为在我家看来这是不可避免的。不是因为我，而是因为另中国竟彩首页人:)
- I've noticed 那 for the most part, people don't use the bathroom when they come over for an hour or so, but you never ...曾经...想 to leave 那 to chance if your bathroom is a mess :) So, if it is, 把烂摊子藏在柜子里。扔掉垃圾。擦洗马桶 quickly, not forgetting to pick up the lid and 清洁 under there. Wipe 在水槽，水龙头和镜子下面。捡拾遗留在 floor.
- Be sure to straighten the bathroom towel also and flip it over -that side is always 清洁er.
