Guest Post :: 10 Things You May Not Think To Clean But 100% Should

A clean home is a happy home, especially during the current times. I think it is probably fair to say that we are at home a bit more than usual these day and are paying a little closer attention to what we might be tracking in, washing hands, wiping off door knobs, etc. Today Archie is sharing a few things we should most definitely add to our household cleaning list!

Having a clean house involves more than cleaning the obvious places like floors and utensils. To enjoy a clean home, you need to go above and identify the most forgotten areas and work on them. This guide explains some of the areas you should always remember as well as how to clean them. 
Most people remember to mop the floors and to vacuum clean the carpets. However, some areas remain uncleaned but shouldn’t. Probably you’re wondering what areas these are. This guide also gives you some keeping house clean tips that you can utilize. Some of these tips might even motivate you to clean the house more often than you do other times.
It’s now time to put on your cleaning robe, pick your favorite home care products, and get cleaning. This guide is the last motivate to clean the house you’ll ever need.
Door Frames
Take some time to touch the frames of the doors in your house. You’ll be surprised at the amount of dust they accumulate. Rarely do people remember to clean these sensitive areas. To clean the door frames, you only need to use a damp mop or cloth tied to a stick. Door frames don’t require daily cleaning, but a wash once a month won’t do them justice and keep your home dust-free. 
Door Knobs and Pulls 
Admittedly, few people clean and sanitize the doorknobs and pulls. These areas accumulate a lot of dirt and germs because everyone uses them. During your weekly cleaning routine, use a sprayer and a cloth to clean your doorknobs. However, with the coronavirus scare and the need for hygiene, it’s recommended to clean and sanitize doorknobs and pulls daily. 
Under Appliances
When cleaning, do you pull your cooker or refrigerator to clean under them? If not, try it during your next cleaning routine. Spaces under appliances accumulate food particles, pet hairs, and dust that may remain unseen. By regularly pulling the appliances to clean the spaces under them, you can rest assured of a clean house. 
Remote Control
Keeping your house clean doesn’t only involve soaking the floors with water and detergent, even the smallest of items could make your home a germ hub. If asked to name something you never clean in your house, it would probably be the remote control. Sadly, kids love playing with remotes, which could expose them to illness-causing germs. Regularly clean your remotes using a damp cloth and also make sure to spray a disinfectant on them. 
Shower Curtains
While ticking your clean house checklist, make sure that the shower curtains are cleaned. These curtains accumulate a lot of soap gunk and could also develop mold, especially during the cold seasons. At least once a week, create time after showering to clean your curtains. Remember, bathrooms can become very damp if hygiene isn’t observed. 
Even though garbage bins are meant for trash, cleaning them every time you empty them could eliminate awful smells or fruit flies from your house. Besides, having a clean dustbin could give you the motivation to empty trash more often. 
Electricity Switches
Imagine the many times you switch your electricity on and off but rarely clean the switches. You should clean the switches once in a while to remove all the dust that may accumulate on the surface. Besides, sanitizing the switches is also a great way to eliminate any germs that may be lodged on the switches. Remember, everyone in your house keeps using them. 
Television Screen
If someone asked you how clean is your house? The answer would definitely be sparkling clean. But when was the last time you cleaned your television? Children love touching on the TV, leaving prints of small hands all over. Besides, a lot of dust accumulates on the television over time. 
Curtains and Curtain Rods
Curtains hold all the dust from outside and rarely get cleaned. Dirty curtains and curtain rods could leave everyone in the house sneezing or having runny noses. Use a damp cloth tied on a stick to clean the curtain rods thoroughly. You’ll be surprised at the amount of dust these areas can hold. 
Kitchen Sponges and Cloths
Kitchen cloths and sponges can harbor a lot of dirt and germs that could make you sick. Wash the kitchen cloths every day with hot water and some soap. Then rinse them off and take them outside to dry. Sponges should also be cleaned using warm water, especially after washing your utensils. 
In conclusion, there are those areas or items that rarely get cleaned, but 100 percent should. For example, the surfaces under appliances, remote controls, doorknobs, curtains, televisions, and electricity are just but examples of those neglected areas of our homes. If you check on some of these tiny areas, you can enjoy the clean house.
