Last-Minute Guests? Quick Tips to Clean the House Fast

If you’ve ever found yourself expecting last-minute guests, then you know it can be tough to clean the house in a hurry. Even if there isn’t time to do a thorough cleaning, you can still freshen fast and make the house guest-friendly with these tips.

When the sun shines through windows, you can see the dust building up. Use an old sock to quickly run over blinds.

Got a run in your pantyhose? Don’t toss them! Instead, use them to wipe off dusty candles on coffee or end tables.

Make sure to dust everything before you vacuum.

The vacuum will pick up any dust you’ve moved around once it’s settled.

Before vacuuming, sprinkle your carpet with Febreze™ Carpet Deodorizing Powders. They clean up to three times better than vacuuming alone*, soften the carpet and leave the room with a light, fresh scent.

As a finishing touch, top light bulbs with a few drops of vanilla extract. The heat from the bulb will warm the extract, making the room smell delicious.
