How to Clean a House in 15 Minutes

11096vvsgfegevc
This week we are preparing for hoards of guests to arrive and visit while preparing for an upcoming family event.  So How am I going to get and keep the house clean with kids home?
I believe the house is as clean as it can be with kids but I still want to tweak a few things make the house shine. Now I am not a woman who could clean ALL DAY long,  don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to organize and to decorate when I get a chance. But cleaning is not one of those things I love to do.  I do however love a clean uncluttered house.
How I am Going to Clean My House 15 Minutes?
I believe the house is as clean as it can be with kids but I still want to tweak a few things make the house shine. Now I am not a woman who could clean ALL DAY long,  don’t get me wrong I do like my house to be clean but I don’t enjoy cleaning.
So here is the low down on how I am going to do it. 
  • I will continue to do my daily chores, laundry and dishes.
  • I am going to divide the house into zones.
    • Great Room and Family Room
    • Kitchen  and Laundry
    • Bathrooms
    • Bedrooms
  • Each Day I will set my timer and do a 15 min clean in a zone. 
    • Monday – Great Room and Family Room
    • Tuesday – Kitchen and Laundry (deeper cleaning, this is in addition to daily chores in these rooms)
    • Wednesday –Bathroom –make it pretty for guests
    • Thursday – Bedrooms – Change linens, general straighten and wipe down of furniture.
  • If I am still working on something when the timer goes off I will finish that job but not start a new one.
Will my house be looking like a hotel when guests arrive? Probably not,  but it will look warm and inviting.
How do you prepare for company coming?
