This article is for the guys who've successfully invited a woman over to their place to Netflix and thrill. Don't go in blind; respect yourself and the women you invite to your humble abode.

This checklist will ensure you don't look like a disheveled gremlin who needs mommy to come over and clean up after them. You'll look like an adult! How cool is that??

Your Netflix and Chill Checklist

In the bathroom

  • Clean your bathroom! Clean 'round the toilet base, lid, and all the crevices where shit is hiding.
  • Clean the mirrors in your bathroom; gotta get that toothpaste splatter off em.
  • Change out your towels in the bathroom, and place new hand towels.
  • Wipe down the bathroom sink
  • Sweep the bathroom floors
  • Vacuum any bathroom rugs

In the kitchen

  • Wash your dishes. Nothing says “I don't give a fuck” like someone with a stack of dishes in their sink. Yes, I know people have other forces they're fighting, the world is fucked, and we're all fighting past traumas and can't get to the dishes. Trust me; I understand, bb. But we're trying to create a cozy environment for the woman you've invited over. So a bit of sacrifice on your part will go a long way!
  • Wipe down kitchen counters
  • Sweep kitchen floor
  • Wipe down refrigerator
  • Optional: Clean your microwave. Being thorough is never bad. Your future self will appreciate it.

In the bedroom

  • Make your bed, fluff your pillows.
  • Fold any clothes and put them away.
  • Place any soiled garments in your hamper. Check to see if your hamper smells. Maybe put them in the garage or somewhere they don't stink up the joint!
  • Vacuum!
  • Wipe down or dust nightstands and dressers

In the livingroom

  • Burn a candle or some incense, and make your place smell nice. Start there.
  • Toss out any random mail, boxes, etc.
  • Vacuum and/or EVERYTHING. If you have a rug, or hardwood floors, clean up your place and get the junk off the floor.
  • Vacuum couches and chairs
  • Dust EVERYTHING. The TV, desks, chairs, coffee tables, etc.. Compressed hair and using your vacuum's hose attachment simultaneously is a nice Lil hack!

You, yourself, and YOU

  • Take a shower, or at a minimum…
  • WASH YO DICK! Soap, water, take a goddamn shower. Don't use any fancy deodorizer for fucksake.
  • Brush your teeth
  • Definitely put on a fresh change of clothes, especially your chonies!
  • Hide any drug paraphernalia if that's a thing you do.
  • Silence your phone.
  • Ultra-specific tip: If you're the kind of asshole with a Plex server and you have Other Video content, and you're going to watch movies for the love of all this is holy, make sure that your other videos do not show up under suggested videos to watch! Having to explain your weird fetish of women squeezing the life force out of you with their thighs is just fucking uncomfortable.
