It seems that I only notice spots I have missed dusting while visiting with company. "Oh dear, I won't pass the 'white glove' test!" (For those of you who aren't familiar with this old saying...It is an inspection for dust with a white glove. If the person wearing the white glove skims the surface of your furniture and produces no dirt...you passed. If not...off with your head.)
There are a few days before the Littau family Christmas, so I intend to get some of the bothersome nooks and crannies cleaned and things put away that have needed to be restored to their places. I would love to hire people to clean for me, but they don't know where to put those kinds of things.
I have a question for those reading this post: How do you prepare for a hired cleaner to come? How many of you do this? I used to clean houses for my job. Why is it so hard to get it all done at the same time at my own home? Suggestions? Stories? I want to know that I'm not alone.
