Some Things You Usually Don't Think About Cleaning
The pandemic have changed the way people think about cleaning. During these times, it is crucial to stay vigilant when it comes to cleaning. The effort will be worth it in terms of you and your family enjoying good health and being less prone to viruses and illness in your home.
There are many things that you might probably miss during a routine cleaning that you should focus on. These items in the home are often touched frequently but often overlooked or forgotten during regular cleanings. You should take the time to focus on the "forgotten spots" and focus on areas, unique nooks and crannies, cracks and crevices, as well as items that are often used and touched daily.
Here is a list of specific places where you should spend more time cleaning since they are often overlooked:
Cabinets. Make sure to thoroughly clean all cabinets, especially where food and cleaning products are stored. You should take everything out and wipe it down with a damp cloth using a cleaner or soap and water.
Cupboards. Repeat the same steps as cabinets.
Trash cans. Trash containers are often overlooked and end up with gunk and other stuff at the bottom of containers. You should take your trash containers outside and give them a thorough cleaning with your water hose, a scrubber, and a cleaning solution.
The walls and floor around the trash can should also be given special attention. When people throw things in the trash, they sometimes miss, and small particles of food and other trash end up stuck to your walls and floors. It would help if you made an effort to clean this up.
Faucets. Faucets can get grimy and dirty around the sealings. You should get rid of any dirt and grime around the faucets and make the metal shine again.
Microwave oven. People often ignore cleaning the microwave, and food splatter and particles can quickly accumulate in a microwave. Make sure to give your microwave a thorough cleaning so that all food particles and food stuck on the walls and glass are removed. You should make sure that your microwave is always clean since it is usually used quite often.
Stove. Take out the burners and clean all dirt and food residue until the metal shines.
Electric/gas oven. Use an oven cleaner and remove all grease and burnt-on food from the oven. Make it shine like new.
Dishwasher. Clean all dirt and soap residue inside as well as outside buttons and knobs.
Drawer handles. Hands come in contact with drawer handles, so it is good to clean them and apply a disinfectant.
Doorknobs. As mentioned, items that come in contact with hands should be cleaned often.
Light switches. The lights go on and off every day, so make sure to give the light switches a cleaning with disinfectant.
Cell phones. People do everything with their cell phones in their hands, and this harbors many germs. Clean all cell phones in your home.
Computer mice. This is another item that is used daily, but people rarely take the time to clean it. You will be surprised how much dirt and germs are being harbored on your mice. You should clean them more often, especially if you spend a lot of time on your computer.
Staircase/door railings. The railings are another overlooked item that comes in contact with hands more often than you think. Make sure to wipe all railings down using a clean towel with soap and water or the proper cleaning solution to remove any dirt.
