There are times when you do not want to hit anywhere outside and the best thing on your mind are to get your date home. But wait, you cannot do that because if they came home they would be shocked to see the way your apartment is.
If you live alone and have a habit of leaving our chores for till you get back in the evening or doing them on leisure days alone, then this checklist of things can help you not just overcome the inertia with housekeeping but also floor your date with a clean and glowing apartment – yours!!
Clothes go first:
Nothing is more gruesome than seeing clothes scattered everywhere on the floors and across the rooms or used clothes hanging on pegs for days. The apartment can smell like an old used sock to an outsider. You don’t want your first impression to be a bad one!
Roundup and manage laundry daily or at least once in two-three days:
You can collect all the used clothes in a hamper and cover it or keep it in an inconspicuous corner of the house. Make sure to clean the sheets, screen, and the towels on a daily basis. This ensures the freshness in the rooms.
Deodorisers are a great addition:
Use appropriate room fresheners and don’t forget to replace them in the washrooms as well. You can stock up on the fragrances and scented candles but make sure that the perfume is a soothing one and not too strong for your date.
No clutter, please!
If you have a habit of seeing books, stationery and Knick knacks strewed around, it is possible that it can put off your date. A no clutter place is always more welcoming and friendly. Use lid boxes to store clutter that you don’t want to be seen whereas you can store your current reads and your hobby pieces that you are working on in open boxes that can also double up as conversation starters!
I once had a date who loved my fetish box. It was a great way to begin on the topic too. More tips on this? https://loveplugs.co/collections/wolf-tails.
Your refrigerator is another place you need to give your attention to. Clean spills and throw stale food and drinks. It is obvious that your date might use it to pour a drink! So there!!
