Make sure that you clean all of your house, including the window panes and furniture, on a regular basis. As such, you won’t be overwhelmed with the cleaning task when it’s finally time to host.
The Art of Stashing
You don’t want to show a messy house to your guests, do you? But at the same time, you don’t want to completely get rid of the convenient pieces of clutter you have lying around the house. As such, you can simply shove them all into a few baskets and stash them away in some cupboard. Out of sight!
If your guests are gonna’ be staying overnight, you need to find a way to make an arrangement so that your beauty sleep isn’t disturbed. If they’re traveling with kids, it’s likely that their kids may feel hungry at night and they might have to disturb you. As such, keep a bunch of midnight snacks and treats in a cupboard and let all your guests know they have complete access to it.
Get Rid of the Pet Hair
If you own pets, it’s likely that you’re used to layers of fur on the sofa and on all your furniture. However, your guests might not be as tolerant. So brush away all the pet hair before they come. And once they come, let your pets greet them briefly, but then move them into a separate room with some food and water.
These are some basic tips on how to manage a home when you have a lot of guests coming over, especially if those guests are bringing kids along. Hopefully, this list will help you maintain your sanity through your duties as a host or hostess.
