It happens to the best of us when we're on our way home from a busy day wondering what we're going to make for dinner the phone rings and after answering it we're suddenly in a panic to get home and perform a miracle.  Our foot seems to suddenly press on the gas peddle as we weave in and out of lanes because company is coming over!!  Dinner now is a distant memory.  We are now thinking about what to do with a messy house.

I've gone so far as to keep guests in the living room saying "sorry the toilet broke this morning." But that only worked once.  Here are a few things I've learned to do after panic has set in and I've reached home.
  • Place all dirty dishes in the dishwasher or oven.  We're ordering out at this point.
  • Wipe off all countertops and cabinets to be free of grease and finger prints.
  • Clean the toilet bowl and seat.  Don't forget to flush.
  • Use a microfiber towel and glass cleaner and wipe down any glass and/or mirrors.  People always look at themselves; especially, at someone else's house.
  • Replace hand and bath towels with fresh ones.  Don't forget to change hand towels in the kitchen.  
  • Try to pick up as much as possible and throw into a bedroom, close the door, and post a "DO NOT ENTER SIGN."
  • Light many scented candles throughout your home.
One last tip:  don't forget to order dinner.  I hope this helps.  Good luck!!
