Spots You Forgot To Clean
It’s all well and good to talk about spring cleaning, and how you’re going to sweep and dust every nook and cranny of your home until it sparkles, but are you sure you’ve gone over every corner? There are a few areas that are commonly overlooked when cleaning, so you can bear them in mind before you get started.
Just because the dishes are getting cleaned in the sink, doesn’t mean the sink itself is clean. Particles of food leftover from soaking the plates can get caught in the drain and block up the pipes. The surface between the sink and the tap can get limescale residue and crumbs caught around it. Little things can add up, leaving your dishes dirtier than you might expect. After doing the washing up, take some antibacterial wash and wipe down the sink.
If you have a dishwasher, you should run it through while it’s empty every once in a while. This will mean your dishwasher is clean and sanitary, which means hygienic dishes.
Behind the furniture
It can be tedious having to pull the furniture away so you can access those hard to reach areas with a vacuum, but it’s all part of the deep cleaning process. Hire a cleaner to get you started, and make sure you clean a different section every week. Check out https://whizz.com.au/ to connect with independent cleaners.
Behind the Toilet
You’ve scrubbed your toilet bowl until your fingers smell of disinfectant. It’s sparkling white and your hard work has paid off. But behind the bowl, dust, germs, and dirt are gathering. Next time you’re dusting down the countertop, spare a moment to spray and wipe behind the toilet.
Think about how many people touch that toilet handle on a regular basis. It won’t hurt to wipe it down with an antibacterial towel.
Everyone fights over the remote, so it stands to reason that it changes hands several times a day. Not all those hands are washed before they win control of the remote. This doesn’t have to be a regular occurrence, but you should consider using an antibacterial wipe on it every once in a while.
Cleaning the windows is usually on the spring cleaning list, but the window tracks need to be cleaned more often. They tend to collect dirt, grime, and dead bugs, which are not appealing to look at. Spray some disinfectant on the area, then use a Q-tip to really get in there and wipe the dirt away.
When hay fever season comes around, you need to eliminate any dust in the house that might make it worse. You may not have realised this, but there is a source of dust in your house that gets overlooked so often that it gets worse for you every time. Use a microfibre cloth to dust the air vents, and breathe in the fresh, clean air.
