Cleaning is not our favorite activity. And then, someone calls you on the phone and says “I’ll be there in 5 minutes”. And your home is in complete mess. What do you do now? Simply, you do your best to put everything in order. And while you are in panic waiting for the door bell to ring any moment, you just don’t know what to do. Do not worry. Take a look at these quick cleaning tips and put everything in order in just 5 minutes!
Hide the clutter
Well, if you have less time then you really can’t do decluttering. Simply stuff the clutter somewhere where it is not visible. You can use decorative boxes or baskets for that. No one will know that there is clutter inside. And promise to yourself that you will declutter when you have time.
Misplaced things do not look pleasant to the eye. So, you should spend a few moments on straightening things up. Arrange the chairs so they all are in place. Symmetry is a thing that looks so pleasant. Also, straighten the fabrics that are wrinkled. Arrange all the decor items on their place. When things are aligned and symmetrical, they look tidy. A few moves will help you do it.
Fluff up the pillows
Pillows might look sad and untidy, if they are squished. A quick touch up will put them in order. Fluff your throw pillows and they will look fabulous again. If you have left your blanket on the sofa, fold it and leave it resting on the arm. It will look cozy and intentional!
Wipe the dust
When you don’t have enough time to do proper cleaning, even a quick wiping will do the trick. Swipe the dust off the most important and visible surfaces, such as the coffee table and shelves.
