Cleaning the bathroom. Seriously. Maybe you feel proud that your living room and kitchen and even the bedrooms stayed relatively clean this week, good for you. However, if you avoid cleaning your bathroom, it is Scientifically Proven that a visitor will ask to use it. Said visitor might walk in to find a large pile of laundry and mud everywhere – which looks suspiciously *not* like mud once it’s in a bathroom, BTW. When she sits down she may find herself looking at a bathtub that holds a heat vent covered in dog poop. FYI, if your dog likes to poop on vents, don’t just rinse it and save the disinfecting for later. When she goes to wash her hands, she will find it difficult due to the toys in the sink that were “having a bath” this morning. So, while you may want your visitors to see a clean-ish living room when they walk in, do the bathroom first. Trust me.
