'Scurrifunge' or 'Scurryfunge'
From the Oxford English Dictionary:
scurrifunge ˈscurrifunge, v.dial.
[A word of jocular formation, used in various senses with little or no discoverable connexion.]
a. ? trans. To scrub, scour. b. intr. (See quot. 1777.) c. ? To wriggle about.
1777 Horæ Subsecivæ (MS.) in Eng. Dial. Dict., s.v. Scurrifunge, to lash tightly; coïre. 1789 Cowper Let. to Lady Hesketh 6 June, Half a dozen tooth brushes... Two of the brushes abovesaid must be for inside scurryfunging, viz. they must be hooked. 1894 Punch 1 Sept. 102/1 So he scurryfunged around with his stomach on the ground,..And he spied ‘a stag of ten’.
The word has had a bit of a revival lately in the sense that the OP suggested:
Old English; to rush around cleaning when company is on their way over.
Not in use much nowadays but it really should be, I scurryfunge.
“Putting the phone down to my neighbour, I had a quick scurryfunge before she rang the doorbell”
“Whenever my mother-in-law was due for a visit, I’d have to have a scurryfunge no matter how tidy my house was.”
