"For entertaining in close quarters, remove any awkwardly personal artifacts like undies, odd medicines, and creepy towels, and scrub the F out of your toilet, sink, tub, and floors before guests arrive. Stock clean towels up in there, too, and be sure you have some swag soap like Dr. Bronners, so everyone has soft hands and warm hearts. Anything that looks weird, like a plastic dinosaur collection, should be put in the corner of your closet or cabinet (bonus tip — leave that stuff there after the party ends). Arrange everything neatly, even your shoes!"
