GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) — As much as we don’t like it, sometimes visitors drop by unannounced. We’ve pleaded, we’ve begged and we’ve instructed a call before anyone shows up on our doorstep, but people don’t always follow the rules. If you find yourself the recipient of a surprise visit, make sure you’re the hostess that’s always prepared. Here’s a list of six items you should always keep around:1. Plenty of ice
If someone asks for a drink, make sure there’s ice to make it cool.2. Extra toilet paper under the bathroom sink
So your visitor doesn’t need to yell through the bathroom door for you to bring them some.3. Air freshener in the bathroom
It’s embarrassing for a guest if they can’t cover their tracks.
4. Clean spare towels and bedsheets
Maybe your cousin’s car broke down and they will be at your house until at least the next morning.5. A 30-minute dinner recipe
This will be a lifesaver if you have to cook.And last, but not least…6. A phone charger
So your guests are not without their lifeline.
