How to quickly clean an apartment

It's often a force majeure situation when guests are about to arrive and you still haven't found time to clean. Experts say that you can clean the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and living room in just 20 minutes.

The Sun has shared some simple life hacks that will help you keep your home clean when you're in a hurry. Caroline Solomon (on TikTok @neat.caroline), an organization specialist and DIY expert, shared her method of how to clean the house quickly and efficiently when guests are already on the doorstep.

Living room

The overall impression of a home begins in the living room. First of all, remove the mess from the sofa. Shake out the debris from the cracks, take a beautiful blanket out of the closet, fluff the pillows - do everything you can to make it pleasant and comfortable for your guests to sit and talk.

Quickly wipe the coffee table, and remove stains and fingerprints using an all-purpose cleaner. If you have any magazines or books, fold them neatly and evenly.


You can use vinegar and water to quickly clean the oven door. Pour vinegar and water into a spray bottle in a 1:1 ratio. Mix thoroughly, spray on greasy stains, and wipe with a microfiber cloth.

Then put away dirty rags and kitchen towels and wash the dishes.


Your guests will definitely want to wash their hands after being outside. Therefore, it is important to remember to clean the bathroom.

Caroline Solomon advises wiping mirrors with the same solution of vinegar and water or using a professional glass cleaner.

Be sure to replace dirty towels with new or laundered ones.
