30 MINUTES TO A CLEANER HOUSE 
Misc. Jokes
You're getting company in 30 minutes. Your house is a mess. WHAT WILL
YOU DO?

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the first session of Housekeeping
Tips for Regular People. If you're a Martha Stewart type of
housekeeper, this column is NOT for you.
However, for the rest of you, this is your chance to learn 15 Secret
Shortcuts to Good Housekeeping that your mother never told you.

SECRET TIP 1: DOOR LOCKS
If a room clearly can't be whipped into shape in 30 days, much less 30
minutes, employ the Locked Door Method of cleaning. Tell anyone who
tries to go in the room that you accidentally locked the door and
can't find the key.

Of course, the locksmith can't possibly come until tomorrow. CAUTION:
It is not advisable to use this tip for the bathroom.

Time: 2 seconds

SECRET TIP 2: DUCT TAPE
No home should be without an ample supply. Not only is it handy for
plumbing repairs, but it's a great way to hem drapes, tablecloths,
clothes, just about anything. No muss, no fuss.

Time: 2-3 minutes

SECRET TIP 3: OVENS
If you think ovens are just for baking, think again. Ovens represent
at least 9 cubic feet of hidden storage space, which means they're a
great place to shove dirty dishes, dirty clothes, or just about
anything you want to get out of sight when company's coming.

Time: 2 minutes

SECRET TIP 4: CLOTHES DRYERS
Like Secret Tip 3, except bigger. CAUTION: Avoid hiding flammable
objects here.

Time: 2.5 minutes

SECRET TIP 5: WASHING MACHINES & FREEZERS
Like Secret Tip 4, except even bigger.

Time: 3 minutes

SECRET TIP 6: DUST RUFFLES
No bed should be without one. Devotees of Martha Stewart believe dust
ruffles exist to keep dust out from under a bed or to help coordinate
the colorful look of a bedroom. The rest of us know a dust ruffle's
highest and best use is to hide whatever you've managed to shove under
the bed. (Refer to Secret Tips 3, 4, 5.)

Time: 4 minutes

SECRET TIP 7: DUSTING
The 30-Minutes-To-A-Clean-House method says: Never dust under what you
can dust around.

Time: 3 minutes

SECRET TIP 8: DISHES
Don't use them. Use plastic and you won't have to.

Time: 1 minute

SECRET TIP 9: CLOTHES WASHING (EEWWW)
This secret tip is brought to you by an inventive teenager. When this
teen's mother went on a housekeeping strike for a month, the teen
discovered you can extend the life of your underwear by two ...if you
turn it wrong side out and, yes, rerun it.

CAUTION: This tip is recommended only for teens and those who don't
care if they get in a car wreck.

Time: 3 seconds

SECRET TIP 10: IRONING
If an article of clothing doesn't require a full press and your hair
does, a curling iron is the answer. In between curling your hair, use
the hot wand to iron minor wrinkles out of your clothes. Yes, it
really does work, or so I'm told, by other disciples of the
30-Minutes-To-A-Clean-House philosophy.

Time: 5 minutes (including curling your hair)

SECRET TIP 11: VACUUMING
Stick to the middle of the room, which is the only place people look.
Don't bother vacuuming under furniture. It takes way too long and no
one looks there anyway.

Time: 5 minutes, entire house; 2 minutes, living room only

SECRET TIP 12: LIGHTING
The key here is low, low, and lower. It's not only romantic, but bad
lighting can hide a multitude of dirt.

Time: 10 seconds

SECRET TIP 13: BED MAKING
Get an old-fashioned waterbed. No one can tell if those things are
made up or not, saving you, oh, hundreds of seconds over the course of
a lifetime.

Time: 0

SECRET TIP 14: SHOWERS, TOILETS, AND SINKS
Forget one and two. Concentrate on three.

Time: 1 minute

SECRET TIP 15:
If you already knew at least 10 of these tips, don't even think about
inviting a Martha Stewart type to your home.
