Is your home usually always guest ready?

Is it usually neat? If a guest shows up unexpected do you scramble to clean or just leave things as they are? Ifyou know someone is coming do you make your house super clean?

  • I tend to just "freshen" my house, like run a Swiffer on the hardwood floors and vacuum rooms that need it. I always have a spare set of clean sheets, and we never leave a messy house before we go to bed so we're always ready for guest, whether they're expected or not.

  • i try to keep clean. As much as possible with 4 little kids running around. if I have an unexpected visit, I am noramlly picking things up around me, and putting them where they go. But for the most part my house stays OK., Now the kids room..That depends on the week? lol

  • The floors and toilets yes are clean. The rest of the place is terribly cluttered, although if I have advanced warning I can grab a box and push most of the stuff into that and hide it.

  • I keep my house spotless pretty much all the time for that VERY reason. I never want my hubby or my kids to be embarrassed if someone stops by to see them...

  • Super clean no, I used to but after child #3 and then #4 I gave up on spotless clean, lol. I do make sure that the bathroom is clean, that the floors are clean and able to be walked on, there usually isn't a large mess sitting around, but I don't go making sure all the laundry is finished, cleaned and put away, nor do I spit-polish my counters and go on a dusting frenzy... I just make sure it's as I would like it to be when going to others homes, able to sit and walk and go potty w/o being on top of a mess.
