Prepping for a Last-Minute Houseguest
No matter how your guest comes, whether they are family, friends, or customers you’ll need to consider their food preferences. Maybe one of them is a vegetarian, or allergic to fish or dairy products. Be sure to include a variety of menu options and keep your pantry and refrigerator appropriately stocked. You should always have a case of water on hand as well.
Adding a few niceties in your spare bedroom will be as inviting to your guest as a five-star hotel room. Consider setting out some essentials such as towels and an alarm clock. If you want to provide a little extra luxury you can set out bottles of water, foil-wrapped chocolates, and a few cut blooms in a vase.
It’s the little things that truly matter. In order to make sure you’re really prepared for your last-minute houseguest to consider adding a few necessities to your guest bedroom that will be there when you need them. Have a julep cup on the nightstand of your guest bedroom ready to fill with ice for when your guest arrives. So then place a few cups in the room along with a few bottles of water. Keep a couple of notepads and pens in the drawer in case they need it. And lastly, bulk up on the bathroom supplies like toilet paper. You want to make sure your guest bathroom is always stocked that way they’ll never have to ask for more.
Taking into account some of the tips and tricks we shared, the more prepared you are for your guest the easier it will be to clean up after them. Keeping a cleaning basket stored somewhere in the room will help the process run more smoothly too. In this basket, you’ll keep supplies such as rubber gloves, disinfectant spray, bathroom cleaner, microfiber cloths, and dusting spray. Throw any towels and linens into the washer immediately after your guest departs and get to cleaning. Make sure you clean your fish tank (if you have one) so you make a good impression!
