Let’s face it, you can’t clean EVERYTHING. There will always be a spot you miss while tidying up your home, it’s inevitable. It happens, and it’s usually no big deal. You can always get that spot next time. But did you know there are 6 spots you are CONSTANTLY overlooking? Let us clue you in.
1. Behind your refrigerator
How often do you Hulk out and move that bad boy? Never? Exactly. Ensure that AT LEAST once a month, you get your workout in and move that giant to the side so you can dust, vacuum or mop.
2. Your faucet
Bacteria, food particles (hopefully only in your kitchen sink), mildew, and mold can all be building up in your faucet while you keep using it as normal. If your water starts to taste a little more “flavorful”, this is something to investigate.
3. Garbage bin
Even if you use liners, it’s a good idea to wipe down the inside of your trashcan at least once a month. Bacteria can harbor in dark places. To avoid having any issues with gunk or horrible smells, best to wipe down the bin with disinfectant.
4. Utensil drawer
If you can’t tell, the kitchen gets sorely overlooked when it comes to cleaning. When cleaning out your dishwasher or your sink, do you thoroughly inspect each utensil before it goes into your drawer? No? You could be trailing crumbs, dirt, and so much more into your “clean” drawers.
5. Window tracks
Most of us wash the inside and the outside of our windows. However, do you remember where the window itself rests? The tracks of your windows often collect the most dust, pushing it down each time you close them.
The closest to our feet and shoes, which no doubt carry in all sorts of messes. You’d be surprised how much brighter your baseboards are after a quick wipe down! We recommend a microfiber cloth or a Swiffer dry floor cover.
