5 Things That Will Make Any House Guest Feel Uncomfortable

Inviting people over to your home is a time-honored tradition that many extroverts cherish. Whether you’re having family or friends over for a hangout, special occasion or romantic endeavor a great time is sure to ensue. However, it is important that you make your house guests feel comfortable in your home or that good time we mentioned earlier will surely not happen. We have made it easy and compiled a list of top 5 things that will make any house guest feel uncomfortable. If you can (which you can) avoid these at all costs. That is if you ever want them to come back to your home.

1. Overload Your Guest with House Rules

“Take off your shoes, keep your hands off the counter, don’t touch anything, and stay out of that room,” said the overbearing house host. There comes a point in everyone’s life where they have a run-in with one of these types of people. Sure the shoes off before walking on carpet is justifiable, but the laundry list of rules that precede that initial rule seems a little too much. It seems like some people believe they live in a museum because they prohibit the touching of anything and everything. While this style of home is appealing to the eye it’s certainly far from inviting. Having to constantly nag your guest about the rules is surprisingly not only annoying for you, but for them as well. In short, ease up on the rules a little. After all, you both share the same objective of your social outing and that is to have a good time.
Pro tip: Play some relaxing music prior to the guest arrival to take the edge off.
Go Easy on House Rules!

2. Have the House look like a Tornado Visited Before Your Guest Did

Remember the museum-style house we had mentioned above? Well, this is the polar opposite of that. At some point everyone’s life, we all have encountered a person’s home that makes it clear they would live just as comfortably in the city dump. The terms “clean” and “tidy” are foreign to them and dusting and scrubbing are out of the question. The whole place has a looming odor that doesn’t leave your nose or memory until hours after your visit. Do yourself and your guest a favor and bust out the cleaners under your sink and tidy up just a little. After all your home is a representation of yourself and how others view you. Do you want to be known as that messy person? Didn’t think so.
Pro tip: Start cleaning your house hours before your guest arrives, because most guests can tell when the cleaning was rushed.

3. Allow Your Pet to Bombard Your Guest

Pets are awesome. They are always there when you need them and are always excited just to see you when you get home. However, no matter how awesome your pet is, someone will not share the same love for your furry friend as you do. You may love when your pet jumps all over you and licks your face uncontrollably as soon as you walk in the door. But to someone who’s never met your hairy companion, this can be a bit overwhelming. Be a good host and give your guest(s) a minute to settle in before you introduce your fluffy friend.
Pro tip: Get to know your guest’s stance on pets prior to inviting them over so you can gauge when (if at all) to introduce your pet.
Keep your pet in check!
Let Everybody Know!

4. Not Notifying You Guests of Everybody That’s Coming Over

Now, this tip may not apply to every guest, but please keep in mind that many guests like to be aware of who else is invited to your dwelling. The reasons can vary, maybe they had a troubled past together. Or maybe your guest is fond of the expected guest and wants to impress them. Or maybe they want to get all of the trash talking out of the way prior to their arrival. Either way, it’s a common courtesy to let guests know who else is planning on coming over. The idea is to make your house guest feel comfortable and we think everyone can agree that having an unexpected guest show up is not always a pleasant surprise.
Pro tip: Put all your guests in a mass message, so they have an idea of who’s invited.

5. Providing a Porcelain Throne that Doesn’t Smell so Royal

What’s worse than using a foul odor ridden public toilet? Using a foul odor toilet in someone’s home. Using the restroom in someone else’s home is already taking a lot of people out of their comfort zone. Tack on the fact that it smells, and you have a full-blown uncomfortable situation. Yes, putting an aerosol spray in the restroom will hide the smell a little. But do you really want your guest smelling flowers with undertones of poo? Get rid of that flowery poo scent and put a NoMO on your toilet. It’s quick and easy to install, filters out and cleans bathroom air and best of all saves you and your guests some embarrassment. Your guest shouldn’t choose the bathroom gas station on the way over instead of yours, so throw out those flowery scents and install a NoMO today.
Pro tip: Be sure and be well stocked on bathroom essentials prior to your guest arrival. No one likes to ask for more toilet paper.
NoMO eliminates bathroom odor!
In conclusion, go easy on the rules, clean up your mess, wait to introduce your pet, tell your guests who are all coming over and filter out your bathrooms odor. Remember your overall goal as a great host is a to make your guests feel comfortable and want to come back to your home, not to drive them away by making them feel uncomfortable.

“NoMO works amazingly well”

I purchased two of your products for my house. They work amazingly well. I love the product and tell all my friends. I intend to buy two more units for the rest of the house.

“I have 3 sons and NoMO has saved my bathroom…”

I was already worried about what our guests would think going into the bathroom, but with NoMO I know that the smell will be totally taken care of! Even I can go into the bathroom without holding my nose, and I have a very sensitive sense of smell.
Sharon N.   Austin, TX 

“Great product…”

This product works amazingly well. There is literally no odor left behind in the bathroom when using the NoMO. I completely disagree with a previous reviewer that mentioned it being hard to install. While I realize that everyone has a different skill level, if you can use a screwdriver, you will have no problems installing this. The cost seemed a little high at first, but once installed and I used it I realized that it is a bargain. It is very well made and I like the fact that it is cordless and the batteries are rechargeable. If you are considering the NoMO, I would not hesitate to buy it.

“Excellent product and was pleasantly surprised…”

Our household has tried other products attempting similar results in the past and none left me too impressed. NoMO was easy to install, easy to use, blends in with the bathroom, looks great and works very well. I’ll be ordering a second one for our second bathroom – very pleased with this purchase!!
Christina L. Dallas, TX 

“I highly recommend NoMO!”

I ordered two NoMO’s for my office and everyone is loving it! No more embarrassing moments of running from the bathroom to my desk hoping nobody noticed it was me. NoMO keeps the air fresh and no more potpourri!
Andrew C.   Boston, MA 

“I’m so happy to have this product”

I’m so happy to have this product! It is as good as advertised. Have placed an order for a second one!

“Five Stars”

Fantastic product. I just got my second unit.
K. Stock   Seattle, WA 

“Makes bathrooms bearable!”

This product has worked wonders! I got one for my roommate and now we share our bathroom in peace.
Riley H.   Austin, TX 

“End result is no smell… awesome!”

My wife bought this and at first I thought, oh great another internet buy. I didnt think this would work at all. Turns out, I was wrong. It runs a little loud but I dont mind as it really isnt much louder than the bathroom fan which I use anyway. The end result is no smell… awesome!
Donny T.   Santa Fe, NM 

“NoMO is amazing”

NoMO is amazing – as soon as I wave my hand and stand the air smells fresh and clean. It’s a little noisy, so everybody knows it’s running, but the end result is worth the little embarrassment.
Taylor H.   Omaha, NE 

“Couldn’t resist the purchase”

NoMO has been a great addition to our home! After seeing all of the features on their website, I couldn’t resist the purchase. I was a little worried about the price, but it has been totally worth it.
Nicholas B.   Boulder, CO 

“It really works!”

Sometimes I have to wave my hand back and forth a few times, but once it gets going, it really works!
Tina P.   Cincinnati, OH 

“Thank you NoMO!”

I don’t have to hold my breath in the bathroom after my husband anymore. Thank you NoMO!
Beth A.   Durham, NC 

“Love the NoMO so far”

Love the NoMO so far. Easter weekend the family will be here, time to put it to the test!

“Thanks NoMO!!!”

My apartment here in Brooklyn will never be the same. Thanks NoMO!!!
Coleen F.   New York, NY 

“Loyal customer over here”

Skeptical at first when I purchased. Installed it last week and LOVE IT had to come back and review it for the company to spread the word. Loyal customer over here!
Bruce S.   Reno, NV 

“Still going strong NoMO makers!”

Have had my unit for a month now and I haven’t had to recharge it once. Still going strong NoMO makers!
Trevor H.   Richmond, VA 

“This thing is great”

If I would afford to buy a NoMO for every toilet in the office I would, this thing is great I am really satisfied with my purchase. Installed the one for my house and love it. Not often I come back and review products I buy online but I had to spread the word for this new game changer.
Jordan J.   Austin, TX 

“Does what it says”

Really happy with my product. Does what they say and was shipped super quickly. Will eventually get another for the kids bathroom.
Doug M.   Tempe, AZ 

“I would buy another”

Price was a little steep but I would buy another after using it a few times. I like the soft fan noise the motor makes so its not just dead silent while im in the bathroom. Luckily I got a good deal with the email sign up.
Jennifer L.   Garden Grove, CA 

“Made a big difference in my home”

Installation was way easier than I expected. Had never removed my toilet seat before but it was just unscrewing two easy screws on the back of the toilet. Got the nomo on in under two minutes. Haven’t looked back since, I love the product it’s made a big difference in my home with two roommates.
Khiry Y.   Pembroke Pines, FL 

“Everyone has positive things to say”

I saw this on a Facebook ad couldn’t help but click and ended up purchasing. Shipping was great I received my purchase in three days and the shipping was free! Box was pretty cool and made it clear how installation was suppose to go down. Taking off my toilet seat was super easy I didn’t have any problems there. Then all you have to do is put down the holder plate and screw back on your toilet seat and charge the nomo. Says online that the charge lasts two months and it takes two hours to charge fully. Thats pretty cool, I didn’t like the idea of having to buy batteries all the time. Have used the product a few times already and everyone in the house has positive things to say about it. Makes the downstairs bathroom next to the living room everyones favorite bathroom to go in. At least my living room doesn’t stink! Would highly recommend the nomo to friends and family!
