Cheat on your holiday cleaning!
I only wish I would have read this article before company came to visit.
Rather than frantically washing dishes, stowing laundry and working myself into a tizzy over all the cleaning work that simply could not be done before my guests arrived, I could have just stowed dirty dishes in large pots, stashed toiletries in the tub and lit lemon-scented candles for that just-dusted feel!
Martha would most certainly not approve. But these cleaning "cheats" — while perhaps not hygienic — are most certainly handy, especially at this time of year!
