    Mmm the person who said was easy may have also said they have a cleaner for a few hours a fortnight in another post

    My house is usually always clean. If friends are coming over, I just do a quick tidy up if needed.

    Nope, I do a general clean in the morning and in the evening with the kids before bedtime but I don't put in a special effort of someone is coming over.

    Yes, i run around like a crazy person making the place as clean and tidy as i can (even when it is pretty clean already) and then when they arrive i often apologise that the house is mess despite the fact i just spend an hour cleaning it.

    I try and clean a path from the front door to the couch and make sure there's somewhere to sit so that they don't end up sitting on Bob the Builder.

    It's not easy when you have 2 children who want to follow you everywhere, one of which want's to be carried or at the very least cling on to your leg.

    My house is alway's cleanish, but I go to the extra effort, if I know I am having visitors.

    If I go to a friends house and it's messy, it does not bother me one bit, as I go to visit my friend, not to judge their cleaning skills.

    I do a basic tidy, but I don't stress if it's not absolutely perfect. I at least make sure I've vacuumed and cleared the bench and table, and I also make sure the bathroom is clean (especially the toilet and basin).

    If I go visiting to other peoples houses and they're a bit untidy, I don't really notice TBH. I am much more critical of my own place than I am of others. I don't want people to go to any huge effort just because I'm coming over! Actually it's kind of a relief if their place isn't perfect, makes me feel better about my place not always looking like a showroom!

    I clean like a mad woman before ANYONE is coming over - eg, the delivery people dropping the bed off this arvo. I like people to think I'm super organised and put together - in reality, the dishes are always piled up and I'm tripping over all of dds toys constantly. But hey, guests don't know that!

    It's easy to keep your house presentable at all times if you have a routine and stick to it. For us we clean as we go, we never leave things for later, we have a place for EVERYTHING and everything stays in its place unless in use.
