Many people spend hours a week ensuring that their home is spotless, while others get by with just a quick sweep every now and then. Whatever you’re level of cleanliness, there are sure to be a few spots that you’ve neglected to maintain. Take a look at our list; just how many of these to do you tidy up to on a regular basis?
It’s filled with soap and water so it should already be clean, right? Wrong – tiny bits of food, grease, and soap scum can cling together and get depositing into the corner of the dishwasher. As time passes, these small areas of buildup increase, making your dishwasher appear dirty and smell foul.
The Kitchen Sink
Bacteria feeds off a wet atmosphere and food particles left on dirty dishes and food that goes down the drain. In order to maintain a clean sink, disinfect it with appropriate kitchen cleaner made to kill bad pathogens. Studies have shown there are more E. coli in a kitchen sink than in the toilet after you flush it.
Your trash cans definitely need to be cleaned weekly. Traces of food and liquids can escape the trash bag and contaminate the trash can. Small pieces of debris can also build up on the lid whenever it’s opened.
Your Cell Phone
Did you know that each square inch of your cell phone has about 25,000 germs? That means that your tiny little communication device is dirtier than your pet’s food dish, a shoe’s sole, and the toilet seat. All you need are some antiseptic alcohol wipes to keep your cell phone germ free!
Dust mites, dead skin, saliva, and other particles build up on your bed pillows as you sleep. This may sound disgusting, but the good news is that your bed pillows are easily washed. Ensure that when you wash your pillows and pillowcases, to dry them thoroughly before the next use.
Your dryer has a specific place for the lint that builds up during its cycle. Removing this lint build up isn’t enough. The bacteria that are removed while your clothes are being dried stick to the lint and create a germ-infested barrier. Ensure that you’re cleaning the lint trap once every 6 months to keep your clothes clean.
