IF you’ve ever been surprised by last minute guests, you’ll understand the mad panic to get everything ready for their arrival.
That means rushing around and manically cleaning to try to make your living room presentable and inviting.
But now some trusted cleaning gurus have revealed their easy guide to a quick clear-up and how it can all be done in just five minutes.
The experts at AO have shared a video titled: “How to make a room look cleaner in 5 minutes.”
In it, they go through the five steps to ensure your room looks clean from top to bottom – but with minimal effort.
First, set your timer with five minutes on the clock, and get ready for a cleaning blitz.
Then start by removing any items or things that don’t belong where they are
That could be anything from glasses to remote controls for the television and anything in between.
Once all surfaces are organised and tidy, step two is to “do a quick tidy. Fluff up pillows and fold the throws.”
The third step is all about spotting any smudges or small spots that need cleaning and can be done so quickly and efficiently.
After you’ve got rid of any pesky marks that are on coffee tables or other furniture, it’s time for the last two steps.
Next, grab a duster and give your TV a quick dust so that it looks shiny and new.
And finally, hoover around, ensuring your floor is just as spotless as the rest of the living room.
You’ll then have a room that is guest ready in no time at all.
