If you have last-minute houseguests, you might be stressed at the idea of cleaning your whole house last-minute, too. Here's an idea: Don't. As Apartment Therapy points out, there are only three areas to clean in order to make your place presentable.

Apartment Therapy makes a good case for cleaning just the following before impromptu guests arrive: The toilet, glassware and the sofa. Your guests will most likely use the bathroom, after all, so it's worth a quick wipe down. Then, make sure the sofa is decluttered and free of pet hair so your guests have a comfortable place to sit and, of course, you want clean glassware for pouring drinks.
Obviously, this is general advice and your own priorities may be a little different. For example, the litterbox is the first thing I think about when I know people are coming over. It's good overall advice, though, and the full post is worth checking out at the link below.
