A friend calls and says they’re five minutes away from your place and they’re dropping off your kids sweatshirt they left at their house the weekend before (or whatever the case may be). You graciously thank them, hang up the phone and look around your apartment slightly panicking. Dishes in the sink, tennis shoes in the living room, dust on the coffee table.
Don’t worry! We’ve come up with a couple of tips to get your apartment to appear clean quickly. *Appear is the key word here, really who has time to really clean in a few minutes?
Ultimately we should try to spend 5 minutes per day cleaning our apartments. In this situation we’re talking about last minute company, not preparing all week long for them to come! Think about how much you can clean in those few minutes before they arrive. With traffic and parking and walking up your stairs, 5 minutes is a safe estimate. Bring that panic to your life every day and clean with the same intensity for just 5 minutes and your house will always look better for it.
