Try to look at your home through the eyes of visitors. What exactly strikes while you in the eye? Collect litter lying not in their places. Underwear, was lying on the chair, it is necessary to remove, but the blanket on the couch and you can leave. He only adds comfort overall atmosphere.
Whisk dust in the place of revelation of its cluster, correct curtains, gather from the floor small items in a separate box that you hide in the back room, and understand, when you have time for it.
Return to the shells of the toilet, walk on them with a sponge or a brush, rinse with clean water.
Go back to the room, turn on the vacuum cleaner, speed them on the floor, collecting visible and clear debris. Under sofas and cabinets you vacuumed later in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Melt in a pan with a little butter, send it sliced apple, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. This way you kill two birds. Cook to whip up a small dessert and the first thing that drew the attention of the guests, barely crossed the threshold, will be a magnificent delicious smell. After that, even the most picky person does not pay attention to the possible confusion, because the smell creates a sense of comfort and a cozy house a mess - it is not a mess, and the artistic mess.
