Keeping the abode spruced up for pop over guests

Summertime is upon us. Anticipation is filling the air of days heading to the summer festivals and the beach. With the wonderful weather of summer come the surprise guests dropping by as they take an evening stroll or making a pit stop on their way to the seashore.

Whether company in stopping by for a cup of coffee or to stay a night, in anticipation of the surprise guests, it is important to have the abode guest ready and organized.

With just a few tips you will have your abode guest ready.

Clean the bathroom as you go

  • While washing your hair leave take time to clean the tub and shower areas as your hair becomes deeply conditioned.
  • Make Friday evening or Saturday morning time for bathroom cleaning. This way the water closet will be fresh for all visitors.

Make sure the floors are kept clean

  • Keep rugs and carpets lint free; run a quick vacuum over rugs and carpets a couple of times a week to stay ahead.
  • Every morning while you drink your coffee, use a swifter to pick up the dust bunnies and sweep the floor.

The kitchen looks clean when the sink is empty and the counters are free of clutter

  • Always keep the kitchen sink clean of dirty dishes, the counters clear, and the floors swept. If you make time every day to do this it will not become overwhelming and you will always have a tidy kitchen.

Desks should look organized

  • Keep papers in order in a desk file to control clutter or a neat letter box.


  • Get rid of the junk mail and papers lying around.
  • Keep magazines and books neatly stacked or in a pretty basket.
  • Baskets are perfect for rounding up remote controls as well.

Dress up your Bathrooms and Guest Rooms for company

  • An attractive basket is perfect to hold fresh guest towels, and bath items. Add some chocolate for a special surprise. You can use those little soaps and shampoos that you have gathered from your hotel stays. Find pretty baskets and items at the dollar store.

Have some cheese and grapes in the fridge, and some crackers and wine to have ready for an impromptu get together. Keep nice scents going with oils and pretty flameless candles.

Invite in the guests. Make sure you have some nice background music going. Never be afraid to Dance!
