I might run the vacuum over the floor but that's about it. Generally my dishes get done 2-3 times a day and I wipe benches down then. No clutter to hide cos I swear I have mild OCD and everything has to be in its right place all the time lol.
My house is always presentable. I just can't handle it otherwise and it seriously takes me about half an hour to an hour each day to keep it that way :-)

Our house is always very neat and tidy so I never have to worry about unexpected visitors!

Not really clean. I'll put away any clean dishes on the drying rack, put any laundry in a basket in my bedroom, and do a bit of a tidy but that's it. I'm not an unclean person and i'm not friends with people who are going to judge a few grimy fingerprints or a crumb or 2,000 on the floor.

I always clean before people come over, it actually provides me with motivation to go beyond a surface clean. I disagree with with PP who says it's not that hard to keep it tidy and clean. I find it a massive effort!

My place is clean but often untidy so I do a quick once over before people come over. This also happens after I put DD down for a nap and again when she is in bed.

I basically just do little bits here and there, but doing them regularly means they don't build up :-)
Having said that though, it's just myself, 6yo & 2yo. Before I left my XH it was insanely difficult to keep the house tidy and clean. I was pretty embarrassed about the state of that house.

I have OCD so my place is clean 90% of the time. If I know somebody is coming over and my place is a mess, I try to tidy up as much as I can. If I don't find the time, I just leave it and don't really care if they see our mess haha
