  • little bits along the way...then one final cleaning....but if they are close friends or family i generally dont fret too much...they know where the doors are and if they dont like my house they dont have to stay :)

  • you should start cleaning right now so when time comes you are not in a hurry doing everything... you could start deep cleaning and then by that day its not really that hard.

  • I agree with bumblebee..... I find it's so much easier to keep a cleaner house by cleaning everyday... Even if it's just little things....

    And you know my Grandma always said that's what under your beds, in your closets, and in your oven is for.... LoL

  • It is easier bit by bit, but that is not the question, so in answer of your question, I would do one mad cleaning frenzy and be done!

  • Id clean a bit everyday but Id save the vacuuming and floors for the day before or the morning they arrive so they are fresh and clean LOL.

  • Usually, everyone in my family pitches in at the last minute.

  • A little along the way. Start with the things that won't get "dirty" again. You know, don't sweep the floor first!
