Cleaning checklist of – not so visible – places in your apartmenthnk_admin
The trouble with living alone is that it’s always your turn to do the house cleaning.
Do you really have any other option?
NO, So don’t crib about it but make house cleaning a fun and exciting task.
When ‘cleaning your apartment’ thing rolls around, there are a few obvious places like sink, floors that you never forget to clean but unfortunately these aren’t the only areas where dirt and dust can accumulate. There are many other hidden spots like under the stove, switchboards, and TV remotes that majority of us overlooked while cleaning.
Once the dishes are done, bathroom is cleaned and bedroom is arranged, pay a look at this cleaning checklist of “not so visible places” in your apartment and be prepared with your cleaning tools –
- Toothbrush holder – To keep your toothbrush fresh and bacteria free, it’s really important to clean the holder also on a regular basis so, rinse it with hot water using a scrub brush and let it drip dry upside down.
- Under the stove – Wipe up the greasy mess under your stove using a slightly damp cloth before the dust sticks on it.
- Curtains – you shouldn’t just forget them once they are rightly placed as they can collect a good amount of dust just like the rest of your home. Get them dry cleaned at least once in a month.
- Door knobs and switch boards – almost every member of the house touches them everyday, leaving behind a thick layer of germs on it so clean them every week using an antibacterial wipe.
- Garbage Can – Empty it out and use a bit of dishwashing detergent mixed with hot water to clean it from inside. Let the bin dry for an hour and once it’s done, sprinkle a small amount of baking soda, as it will help in soaking up the foul odors to keep your kitchen smelling fresh.
- Ceiling fan blades – Clean them with a little soapy water at least once in a month if you don’t want dust raining on you.
- Pillows – One never forgets to flip their pillow covers in washing machine every week but how often do you give a good cleaning to the actual pillows? Clean them today and do read the care label on your pillow for instructions.
- Cleaning supplies – from your broom to cleaning cloths, all should be kept cleaned and sanitized.
- Kitchen appliances – Hotspot for germs as you touch them on a daily basis so make sure to clean them using a dishwashing detergent mixed with vinegar.
Make sure you cover these spots next time, as a clean home is surely a happy home.
