How do you entertain guests? I grew up with a [frazzled] mother who would go all out when throwing any kind of gathering. It was just her nature to go above and beyond cleaning, decorating and cooking… and the apple has proven to not fall too far from that tree! Whereas my sister, who grew up in the exact same environment, will find herself grocery shopping an hour before guests arrive. Go figure!

Regardless of whether you plan for days or it’s a last-minute event, one thing holds true: Hosting a gathering means cleaning. Hiding the clutter, fluffing the pillows, pulling out the nice china is all part of making the home a happy environment for guests. Hosting folks can be a lot of work!

Scrub away the stress for the host with a DIY hostess cleaning gift basket (filled with party-necessary cleaning products like Windex® Original Glass Cleaner, Scrubbing Bubbles® Fantastik® and Pledge®) when it’s your turn to be entertained at a friend’s home… and ensure yourself an invite back!

Windex® Original Glass Cleaner starts working on dirt and grime even before you wipe. It’s great for cleaning glass, appliances, sealed granite countertops and more.

Pledge® Orange Clean gives furniture a great shine and is an easy and fast way to clean and condition wood furniture.

Scrubbing Bubbles® Fantastik® anti-bacterial formula cleans and disinfects a variety of household surfaces, including counters, stoves, microwaves and more.  And the no-rinse solution means you don’t have to spend as much time cleaning. Sounds good to me!
