When guests are expected in the house, they try to put everything in order that is possible. No one wants to show the wrong side of their everyday life, even if it is not so terrible. But an experienced eye can not be deceived and a knowledgeable person will immediately identify the hostess, who is not used to cleaning. There are 10 signs that are not known to everyone, which will tell the truth about how much the house is watched on those days when visitors are not expected.
Almost in every hallway we are met by a mirror and already by its appearance we can confidently say how much the house likes order. Fingerprints, stains and stains of unknown origin on the mirrors are eloquent evidence of a hasty cleaning. In general, in our age of social networks, mirrors should be given special attention — and look, you will make a selfie for Instagram, on which the "fingers"will be visible.
If you have an impressive collection of shoes, then this is not a reason to make an exhibition of them in the hallway. Not only does it get in the way, but it doesn't look too neat. But the worst thing is the street and home shoes, standing in a mix. Such a "composition" will definitely not add authority to the owner of the apartment.
Plaque from soap suds, rust and even mold — all this can be seen on the shower curtain in the bathroom where cleaning is done rarely and carelessly. Hand on heart, we can say that even businesswomen rarely devote time to this important accessory. Meanwhile, washing the curtain is not a troublesome process, and cleaning it after each bath generally takes a few minutes.
The unfortunate multicolored pieces of soap in the soap dishes take us back to the days when these hygiene products were sold to citizens on coupons. In Soviet times, soap was used "until victory", and very tiny pieces were tried to stick to a new piece. Today, such artifacts speak not about the thrift of the hostess, but about her slovenliness.
Washbasin, bath, bidet and faucets require serious regular maintenance. Modern shower cabins can be considered even more problematic. Not every housewife is able to devote enough time to clean them from dried soap suds, limescale and other, even less unpleasant traces. A guest who enters the toilet or bathroom will accurately identify a slob.
Today, dishwashers are generally available and there are no excuses for poorly cleaned plates, spoons and forks. The reverse side of the objects gives the slob away — the inverted plates show a yellow border of fat, and a dark coating can be seen between the teeth of the forks. No matter what culinary talents the hostess has, guests are unlikely to appreciate the treat with such dishes and cutlery.
Leaky, burnt, greasy and faded towels and potholders are an indicator of a negligent hostess. And since they usually hang in the most prominent place, they immediately catch your eye. These accessories not only spoil the impression of the kitchen, but also become hotbeds of bacteria and fungi, provoking allergies and asthma. Potholders and towels from the kitchen should be washed at least once a week and changed every three months.
A crumbling ficus, a dried geranium or an orchid gnawed by a cat do not add pluses to the karma of the hostess. Dying plants look depressing and eloquently say that their owner does not care about the comfort in the apartment or house. Moreover, according to Feng shui, dry and simply ugly houseplants attract disease and poverty to the house.
Even the most expensive and fashionable curtains will make the opposite impression on guests if they are hung crookedly or save a lot on the number of hooks. No less negatively perceived curtains with poorly straightened folds or simply crumpled.
Many people keep stacks of fashion magazines in their living rooms, which help to distract themselves from the hassle and simply pass the time when they get tired of surfing the Internet. But an old periodical with frayed corners and worn covers immediately reveals a careless hostess. If these publications are of value to you, then it is better to hide them in the closet, and take their place with new ones.
In general, disorder can indicate not only sloppiness, but also mental problems. So be vigilant!
