5 Quick Last Minute Cleaning Tips


Cat and Dog Hair

Animal hair can make a house seem a lot messier than it is. Invest in a tape-style lint brush – you don’t need the pet specific ones, store brand will do – and quickly clean off chairs, sofas, duvets and even the drapes, before company comes over. Or, you can use an old rubber dish glove – just run it over the spaces you need to clean and rinse off in the sink. Just don’t do dishes with it later, please.
