3 Things Guests Will Notice When They Come Over

If you decide to throw a holiday party, you’ll be having guests over to your home.  And with that comes the responsibility of making your house look presentable. Impress your family and friends with your cleaning prowess by not overlooking the following areas:

If your guests are staying overnight or long enough that they’ll plan to use your shower, they will definitely notice if there is any grimy weirdness on your shower curtain liner that you haven’t dealt with yet when they get in. So, before guests arrive, be sure to clean the liner—or replace it, if it’s about that time. Source: ApartmentTherapy

Guests have sensitive noses. They can smell the fact that you pan-fried salmon the night before, the fact that your dog skipped his last bath, the spilt kitty litter tray and the fact that you’re using incense or potpourri as a decoy to mask something far less savoury. Even worse, they have a uncanny ability to pick up on smells that not even your nose can detect. To neutralise the odour and make the room fresh again, use an aroma diffuser with essential oils, light a scented candle, or simmer a pot of citrus peel and cinnamon an hour before your guest arrives. And don’t forget to vacuum any stray pet hair while you’re at it. Source: Domain

Let’s move on to the place where all the magic happens–the kitchen. Having a clean kitchen in general is important in and of itself, but there are a few key elements that guests will undoubtedly notice about this room. The first thing is the refrigerator. This is the unit that houses all the food your guests are about to enjoy, so if it’s grimy or if they can smell your week-old can of tuna that’s been sitting in there, chances are they aren’t going to feel too good about the food you’re making. Make sure you spot clean any spills you might have and keep a box of baking soda in there to eliminate any unpleasant odours. Source: Homify
