Cleaning with Minutes to SpareBefore you know it, the holidays are here, your guests are arriving and your home could use some cleaning. Before you curse the extra appetizer or dessert that took up your last hour of precious time, take 15 minutes to simply make your home appear like you’ve spent a full day cleaning it. Grab your microfiber cloth and broom, and set your kitchen timer.

Sweep up the porch and foyer. Fold the throws in the living room and fluff your throw pillows. Toss any old magazines on the coffee table and give it a good swipe with the microfiber cloth as you breeze through the home. Put a fresh stock of toilet paper in the bathroom and put away your toothbrushes and paste that live on the sink. Run your microfiber around the sink and leave a festive box of tissues behind. Lastly throw the dishes in the dishwasher and turn it on. By the time dinner is ready, you’ll have clean (and warm) dishes that are perfect for serving.
