I really do enjoy sharing my home with guests. When we lived farther away from family, we actually got more visitors than we do now that we live close to family. But we still have the occasional dinner party or family gathering at our house. The only thing that stresses me out about company is how clean my house is. I’ve learned a few tips and tricks on how to get your home clean quickly when you know guests are coming over. Especially since I have 5 kids to help me with the work now.
I don’t know about you, but when the floor is dirty and full of clutter, a house looks messy to me. Cleaning the floors is the first thing I do when I am getting ready for guests. And you guys are NOT going to believe it, but I found the PERFECT vacuum. It’s called the Hoover Air Cordless Lift, and guess why I love it so much? IT’S CORDLESS!!!! It runs on a battery so there is no annoying cord to trip over and unplug and plug in when you move from room to room. HALLELUJAH!!!
You guys, I can’t even explain to you how much I love the Hoover Air Cordless Lift. I even created a YouTube video about it (I hate making those because I have to look at myself) that’s how much I want people to know about this vacuum.
There are other reasons why I love the Hoover Air Cordless Lift and I’m gonna tell you about them right now, OK? K.
You can turn off the brush roll so you can move from carpet to hard floors with the click of a button.
It has a boost for those really big messes your toddler makes.
It is CORDLESS! Did I already mention that?
It comes with the best attachments for the jobs around your house.
The canister comes off so you can clean the stairs without dragging the whole vacuum up the stairs.
One of the attachments bends to reach the top of the fan blades on your ceiling fan.
It’s really light so it’s easily carried up and down the stairs by my children so they can vacuum their bedrooms.
It looks like R2-D2.
It comes with an extra battery so you can vacuum for hours if that’s what your heart desires. (the batteries last a long time too!)
The hose really reaches far!
It swivels so you can maneuver easily around the bobby pins your daughter leaves all over the carpet.
The Hoover Air Cordless Lift has a really low profile so you can vacuum deep under the couches and get all those pesky Goldfish Crackers that your kids kick under there.
Is that enough reasons for you to try it out! I think so! I’m telling you, I’m in love. Don’t tell your husbands how much you love this thing or they might get jealous.
The Hoover Air Cordless Lift is the vacuum that any woman would be happy to get for a Christmas Present, along with a set of diamond earrings taped to it. That’s not asking too much is it?
I’m telling you, you’re life will be complete after you get this vacuum in your home. It makes clean up such a cinch. Just grab it and turn it on. No fussing with a cord.
Watch my video review on YouTube:
Now that you’ve cleaned your floors up, let’s move onto the other areas of the home that are important to focus on for your guests.
I’ve created this checklist for you to print and carry around with you while you clean so you don’t forget about anything important. In order to print it just right click the link below and print it for yourself.
Notice that we spend a lot of time in the Kitchen, Living Room, and Bathroom. Those are the 3 main areas where your guests will be spending most of their time while they are at your house. So focus on those the most when you have about an hour before everyone shows up. You know your kids have already undone everything you’ve already done, so you’ll have to make one last sweep through the house taking care of the little details right before the guests arrive.
The most important tip I can give you though, is to enjoy your company. The best host talks to her guests and enjoys her time with them, so once the guests arrive, just sit back and relax and have a fun time. I’d even suggest having a “NO PHONES” party so everyone can focus on the people around them. Make a fun basket for them to drop their phones in on the way into the living room. I’ve even made a cute printable for you to attach to your basket too.
Right click the sign you like and choose “save image” and save it to your computer then you can print it from your computer.
