  • I would hit the bathroom only if my kitchen was already clean. I think dirty dishes in the sink would be worse, especially since you can see the kitchen from anywhere downstairs.

  • I would have to say our living room. It looks like a twister went through it every day until the kids go t bed and i really get a chance to clean it.

  • First thing I do is light a couple of candles and brew a pot of coffee! I'm a smeller by nature, and the smell is the first thing I notice about someone's house. Then I run through the living room picking up toys and throwing away random coloring pages, etc, and if I have time I spritz a little something in the bathroom and wipe down the toilet really fast!

  • Well.. it isn't just one room -- its more like one of us says someone is coming in 15 minutes.. and both me n the dh are picking up the kitchen, living room and bathroom... to make sure but he usually goes between the bathroom and the living room -- i go straight to the kitchen. I don't want dirty dishes in the sink

  • I have actually learned how to do a lot in 15 mintues. I would first straighten the livingroom and then pick up bathroom.

  • well in my house the first place you enter is the living room so I would have to clean that. And the 1/2 bath is right off of the living room by the front door so that would need to be cleaned. The kitchen is not open to the living room so I would only have to straighten up a bit. Light some candles, vacuum and spray some febreeze on the couch.

  • Pick up all the stuff in the LR, make sure bathroom is clean, put dishes in dishwasher, wipe off counters, spray air freshener, make some ice tea and enjoy your company.

  • This is why I believe that every house should have a Fibber McGee room (like the closet in Fibber McGee's house.) When you find out company's coming, you throw everything into that room and shut the door!

  • I always go for the living room and the bathroom, the kitchen I can clean once they get there
