Expecting guests, the last minute? And your house is a mess? Contrary to what we have grown up watching our mothers do, you don't have to give your house a top-to-bottom scrub before your guests arrive. We have got you covered with tips and tricks to make your house look guest-ready in minutes.#1 Tidy Up The Guest BathroomThe bathroom is the only room in your home guests will spend any time alone, with the opportunity to look around. Wipe down surfaces and mirrors, put out a clean towel, refill the hand soap bottle, add some freshener and restock toilet paper.#2 Clear ClutterGrab a basket and go around all the rooms your guest will inhabit, keep adding all the clutter and miscellaneous items in the basket. Once you do that, stow the basket away into a quiet little corner. Make a mental note to sort through it at another time#3 A Quick Dust DownDry dust any open surface areas or shelves of the house, think open book shelves, TV stands, TV screen, mirrors, chairs, any eye-level furniture. Remember to wipe down any tables you may use.#4 Set Out Some Snacks and Cutlery On The TableGood food and refreshing drinks triumphs everything else. Have snacks and beverages set up at the table upon arrival. Whether you have samosas, chips and dips, a fancy cheese platter or a bigger meal planned later on, have your table set up. Your guests will appreciate the thought.#5 Odour Fragrance Is EverythingCreate an inviting smell by lighting a candle or incense, you can also use diffusers. This instantly sets a tone and gives your home a cosy a vibe. If you dont have a candle or incense, quickly heat water in a saucepan, add vanilla and cinnamon to the water and let the smell flow through your home.
