Commonly Missed Cleaning Spots

8 Common Cleaning Spots You're Missing

When you're doing a little bit of dusting and cleaning up this week, remember to do a thorough job. We often clean surfaces and things that are visible, but we forget about the hidden nooks and crannies in our homes. Here are some spots you may want to tackle today:

  • Under your cushions. While you're vacuuming your floor, suck some of the grime out from beneath your sofa cushions.
  • Behind and underneath big pieces of furniture. Move heavy furniture and vacuum the dust collecting behind or underneath your bed, sofa, or other bulky pieces in your home.
  • Under your fridge. People often forget to clean under the fridge, so this weekend, try to roll your fridge from its usual spot and clean the floor beneath it.
  • Behind your toilet. When you're cleaning your toilet, remember to reach for the back and clean away!
  • Your remote control. Just grab a disinfectant wipe and quickly swipe your germy remote.
  • Your Smartphone. We use phones all the time, but rarely think about cleaning them. Use a disinfectant wipe and quickly wipe down your phone buttons and look into other ways of cleaning the screen.
  • Window tracks. We often clean the windows but forget about the window tracks. Use an old toothbrush and a cleaning solution of your choice (like vinegar) and scrub away.
  • Toothbrush holder. One important piece of hygiene equipment that we neglect is our toothbrush holder. It's definitely a health hazard to neglect it because the bacteria can spread to your brush. Fill your holder up with water and drop an Alka-Seltzer in it to clean.
