It's pretty often that we have friends at our house enjoying each other's company. Whether it be game night on Saturday night or watching the games on Sunday sometimes my husband and I forget to communicate with one another if we have invited people to our home, oops...but that's real life for you.
Luckily there's ways to prepare for guests in less than 30 minutes, thanks to the help of Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller with uses all around the house.
1. Round It Up
I start by grabbing a small laundry basket and picking up loose odds and ends around the house. Important papers that are waiting to be filed, cords for electronics, books we may be reading and other bits of craziness that shouldn't be in plain view while entertaining your guests. I use a basket so I'm not stuffing things in places that will be forgotten the next day. After our guests leave I can retrieve everything from the basket and put it in the correct place.
2. Roll Away Pesky Problems
With the Scotch-Brite Lint Roller I make the main sitting areas nice and pretty by rolling away fuzz, hair, and any other nuisances. If you have pets or children, the Scotch-Brite 50% Stickier Lint Roller is great for bigger problems like pet hair and crumbs, because they are the only lint rollers with Scotch™adhesive. I love that they are safe enough on soft surfaces like my decorative throw pillows too, because those are usually first to get dirty when we're snuggling on the couch. To get in the hard to reach places of some pillows, I easily tear a sheet off the lint roller and wrap it around my fingers to clean around buttons and any special detailing.
3. Get Down To It
I bet you didn't think to roll your floor. Yes, I use a lint roller on my floors including the shower. I have thick, dark curly hair and believe me...it gets everywhere. When I get home from work and my husband says "the guys are coming over tonight" the last thing I want to do is pull out the vacuum. I use the Scotch-Brite 50% Stickier Lint Roller for quick pick up on my kitchen and bathroom floors. Get down on the ground and starting left to right easily pick up any hair with the quick roll of the Scotch-Brite Lint Roller. It's such a time-saver and so efficient when in a pinch.
4. Lighten and Brighten
Lamp shades and curtains are usually places easily viewed due to lighting in our house. Cleaning is a breeze in these odd area, just take the lint roller straight to the surface to eliminate dust and lint. After cleaning the lamp shades put a small bit of essential oil on the light bulb. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised with a welcoming scent that's not too overpowering when they arrive.
5.Work Smarter, Not Harder
Since we have a few floors to our house I keep supplies in all the right places. One Scotch-Brite Lint Roller in the garage so it can easily be used in the entryway of the house which is immediately visible to guests. For the most visited areas of the house, the Scotch-Brite 50% Stickier Lint Roller is perfect for dust, hair, and crumbs since there's even more adhesive. To keep it pretty in the bedroom, the Scotch-Brite Printed Lint Roller does the job because of all it's fun prints that make cleaning enjoyable, there are designs on each sheet-how fun is that?!
The Scotch-Brite Lint Roller is incredibly versatile and makes preparing for guests in less than 30 minutes so easy. I found mine in the cleaning area of Walmart, more specifically the Sponges aisle.
