While most of us clean our homes regularly, there are still many hidden spots that you’re forgetting to clean that breed with bacteria. These include our light switches, TV and music system remotes, window screens, trash cans and more. If you are missing out on these from your cleaning routine without realising, we bring along ways to fight off those nasty germs –
1. Light Switches
These are some of the dirtiest spots in your home as you constantly touch them; and bacteria keeps collecting on the switches. Clean the switches using a damp cloth or paper towel and your household cleaner.
2. Toothbrush Holder
It can be easy to ignore your toothbrush holder, especially if you can’t see the inside section, where most of the grime collects. Use hot water, a small scrub brush and mouthwash to keep your holder and toothbrushes clean and bacteria-free.
3. Window Screens
While we all love the pure and natural air in our homes, if our window screens are full of dust, the air won’t be so fresh. Clean your screens by soaking them in warm soapy water and use a scrub to remove the debris.
4. Door Knobs
Another part of the home that gets overlooked during regular cleaning, knobs must be deep cleaned from time to time to get rid of all the germs and dirt. You can wipe them with your cleaner and a cloth or use a deep cleaner if they’re made of metal and are smelling weird.
5. Trash Cans
While we throw out trash every day, we rarely deep clean our cans, which is actually a host to lot of diseases. Clean it under a tap of running water using a scrub and a disinfectant spray.
6. Under Your Appliances
Dirt and germs that get accumulated under your appliances like refrigerator, stove, washing machine should be moved at least once in every three months, and thoroughly cleaned.
