Is it teething time for your little one?
The kitchen is the one spot in the house that can get grubby and untidy very quickly.
If you're expecting guests, but don't have time for a big clean-up, follow these easy tips to let you 'fake' a spotless kitchen. 
1. Declutter the refrigerator by taking down notes, drawings, and magnets and throwing them in a plastic bag. You can sort through it later.
2. Cover up the lingering smells of last night’s meal by boiling nutmeg, cloves, or cinnamon and orange peels in a sauce-pan on the stove. 
3. When the dishwasher is full and the sink is overflowing, stow dirty dishes and silverware in a stockpot and pull them out later to be cleaned.
4. Fold hand towels to hide stains. Hang the clean side over the oven handle (with the stains in the back), or roll towels in neat spirals and stack them pyramid-style next to the sink.
