5 spots you’re sure to miss while cleaning your home
Published on January 10, 2018
Your home isn’t truly clean until all the unexpected places are spotless.
Dirt builds up in unseen places, from décor and appliances to curtains and upholstery. So, no matter how much you clean your house, there are spots that you’re sure to miss.
Here’s a roundup of top five such places and how you should clean them.
Knobs handles, and switches:
They’re frequently overlooked when it’s cleaning time. They’re also bacteria hot spots, so make sure to wipe them clean with disinfectant wipes. You can also spray the surface with vinegar for a natural solution.
Your showerhead gives you a cleaning at least once a day, but when was the last time you returned the favor? Mould and mineral deposits jam up the tiny holes over time. To avoid this, soak the shower head in a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. This will help kill mold and remove hard water deposits.
Space behind the toilet:
This is the most forgotten spot in the bathroom. When was the last time you got on your hands and knees and cleaned the tiles behind the toilet? They’re hard to reach and collect dirt, and bacteria. Take a sponge and some mopping solution to get to this oft-forgotten spot.
You use them to prop up your feet after a long day, but you may not realize that your throw pillows are your depositary of dead skin, filth and dust mites. Run the vacuum over them and if they have covers, make sure you launder them regularly.
Curtains and upholstery:
They may look clean to you but they trap everything from bacteria to dust mites, pollen, and molds. To make sure they’re free from dirt and dust, vacuum them regularly. Look at the label and check if you can wash them or whether you need to have them professionally cleaned.
Now that you’ve seen this list, make sure not to miss them the next time you whip your home into shape. We bet you’re glad you don’t have a bigger place to deal with now!
