put (something) to rights

To restore or arrange something to its proper, natural, or original state or condition. I never worry about keeping my hotel room tidy, because I know they'll send someone to put it to rights once I leave. That new assistant is completely useless. Now I'm going to have to spend the entire weekend putting this contract to rights!
