Having visitors around for supper? Or maybe you simply need to show your place to your companions or neighbors? Make sure your home is clean and in tip-top share before they arrive.

In case you're in a rush to clean or sort out your place, here are speedy cleaning tips, according to Better Decorating Bible.

Keep your tools in one place

Getting your tools from different places already takes up a lot of time. This is why you need to have all your cleaning materials in one place. You can store them in a storeroom, closet, cabinet, basket or dry container. It's also wise to label the container with the names of the items inside it.

 Set a specific time for cleaning

Many people tend to make this mistake when they're in a rush of cleaning: forget about time. Since every minute counts for you, you have to set a particular time limit for every room or per area in your home. For example, set a timer for around five to ten minutes for every room. When the alarm goes off, you should move to another area. This way, you are prompted to budget your cleaning time productively.

Implement a cleaning pattern

"When cleaning a room, start from one side of it then end on its last corner," the article said. You need to come up with a pattern when cleaning that will ensure that you have cover each nook and cranny, or at least all the sides of an area. You can clean from top to bottom, bottom to top, clockwise, or counter-clockwise.

Spray, then wipe

One of the quickest cleaning strategies is the old splash and-wipe method. Essentially fill your splash bottle with disinfectant, get a rug or cloth, spray on walls and surfaces, and wipe afterward. On the off chance that there are stubborn dirt, you can mix vinegar and water or alcohol and liquid soap with water and spray it on the affected area.
