Spring cleaning time is here again! Yes, you may have organized, dusted, mopped, wiped, vacuumed, and cleaned your entire house. However, you can never be really sure that you covered every bit of your residential space.
Pretty confident with your cleaning? Check out these four areas that you might have missed during your annual spring cleaning.
Door Knobs, Handles, and Remote Controls
Good job on cleaning all the big things inside your house. But don’t you know that sometimes, it’s the littlest ones that get the dirtiest? Door knobs, handles, and remote controls gather all kinds of bacteria every time someone touches them.
It may be easy to neglect these little things, but don’t forget to spend a few minutes disinfecting them. Clean them with a sanitizing wipe while passing by.
Washing Machine and Dishwasher
Yes, you remembered to clean the refrigerator, but aren’t you forgetting something? How about your dishwasher and washing machine?
This is where it gets tricky. These cleaning appliances are often times neglected during the whole cleaning process.
So the next time you do your spring cleaning, make sure that you include these two on your list. Check your dishwasher and washing machine for automatic cleaning options. Follow the directions accordingly.
If auto cleaning isn’t an option, clean them manually by wiping them using a cup of white vinegar and a little bit of baking soda.
Even if you’re walking through them every day, it’s easy to forget cleaning the door frames. Make sure you make a stop to wipe them down. Use a duster to get rid of dust on top of your door frames. A wet cloth can also do the trick.
Curtains and Upholstery
Make a regular cleaning schedule for curtains and upholstery. It’s so easy to forget about the curtains after hanging them. This goes the same with upholstery no matter how often you use them.
Curtains and upholstery collect dust over time. Don’t let it damage your décor and health by making sure they’re included in your spring cleaning list.
