First things first – Do a “visitor” walk thru and just take notes of everything that you see that are out of place. This is a great time to give out these little tasks to any other people in the house if possible to get a little bit of help with this hectic time.
Depending on your time limit that you have, I recommend these are the things that you take care of 2-3 days beforehand.
–Clean windows and vacuum window tracks. Damp mop baseboards.
–Deep clean bathrooms and straighten bedrooms.
–Clean all top kitchen surfaces. Wipe fridge and make room for extra food in there.
–Dust all surfaces and sweep entryway.
DAY BEFORE OR DAY OF VISITING (IF POSSIBLE)
–Hang fresh hand towels, and check hand soap.
–Wipe any dirty areas in the bathrooms using a wet rag.
–Put toilet bowl cleaner in the toilets and give them a quick brushing.
–Wipe mirrors, countertops, and bathroom floors with a damp towel.
–Take out the garbage, and line trash receptacles with clean liners.
–Straighten stacks of magazines and books.
–Straighten and fluff sofa pillows and cushions.
–Carry a laundry basket throughout the house, picking up clutter as you go. Once filled, put everything in its place or you can just hide the basket. ☺
–Vacuum high-traffic areas.
–Place fresh flowers and light scented candles.
Now your home should look and smell great. This will take off the extra stress that can be associated with having visitors and/or family over to your home.

7 Ways To Clean Stainless Steel:
- Olive Oil – Keeps Appliances Smudge Free
First, spray some Vinegar & wipe it down with a soft cloth (an T-shirt works too). Then, pour some Olive Oil onto a soft cloth & rub the oil into the grain. Use a clean dry cloth to buff the steel after applying the Olive Oil. Some of the oil will be removed, just enough will stay on to prevent smudges & fingerprints.
- WD-40 – Removes Grease & Grime
Use a soft microfiber cloth to wipe away stains after spraying.
- Coconut Oil – Adds Shine To Appliances
The tiniest amount of Coconut Oil will make it shine, use a soft cloth to buff with the grain.
- Pledge Furniture Cleaner – Polishes Appliances
Spray a heavy coat of Pledge, use a soft cloth to swirl the solution into any stains. Let sit for a few minutes before wiping away (using a circular motion).
- Baking Soda & Vinegar – Removes Burn Stains From Pans
Scrubbing burnt-on stains with a sponge & Baking Soda (this may be enough to remove stains from pots & pans). If not, boil a solution of 80% water & 20% Vinegar, in the stained pots & pans. Boil for about a minute before pouring the solution in the sink, adding more Baking Soda & scrubbing more.
- Flour – Polishes Stainless Steel Sinks
First, clean the sink with some hot & soapy water, make sure the sink is dry before using Flour. (Not drying completely will leave a huge gooey mess). Sprinkle Flour all over sink, use a soft cloth or paper towel to buff the steel. The flour will get into any grooves in the steel & absorb dirt & grime. Wipe up the flour with a soft damp cloth, repeat if your sink needs to shine more.
- Baking Soda, Lemmon Juice, Olive Oil & Vinegar – Removes Water Stains
Combine ¼ cup of Vinegar, ½ cup of Baking Soda, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, & tablespoon of Olive Oil to form the paste. Use a soft cloth & rub into the steel appliance (using circular motions to really get the mixture in). Let sit for about 10 minutes, then wipe off with a soft cloth.
Homemade Daily Shower Spray:
- ½ cup of Hydrogen Peroxide
- ½ cup of Rubbing Alcohol
- 1 teaspoon of Liquid Dish Soap
- 1 tablespoon of Dishwasher Rinse Aid (like Finish Jet Dry)
- 3 cups Water
- Begin pouring Hydrogen Peroxide, Rubbing Alcohol, Liquid Dish Soap, & the dishwasher rinse aid into a spray bottle of at least a 32 oz size. (A funnel is very helpful for this step).
- Next, add 3 cups of water (the mixture might bubble a little bit because of the dish soap).
- Put the top back on the spray bottle & then shake the ingredients together for a minute.
After showering, mist the spray on the shower doors & walls of the shower and you’re done! There’s no need to wipe!
