Despite being a rather straightforward and mundane task, general cleaning isn’t as easy as it looks – ask any homeowner and they’ll agree. Not only will you need to expend lots of energy, but you’ll also need to invest a lot of time – time that’s elusive whilst living in a metropolitan city. Juggling everyday responsibilities and commitments, including chores into your busy schedule can easily be a challenge. Even if you did try to delegate an hour or two to clean your home, you’re bound to miss a few dirty spots that go unnoticed.
If you’re sick and tired of spending so much time and effort in cleaning your home, only to have it be dirty only a few days later, we’re here to help! Target these common spots the next time you’re cleaning, all for a cleaner home!
Under the bed and sofa
Often than not, a lot of people tend to skip sweeping or mopping the area under the bed and sofa, leaving them untouched. Whether it’s due to forgetfulness or you’ve adopted the idea of ‘out of sight, out of mind’, it’s best to spend a few minutes cleaning the area! If they aren’t cleaned once a week, the heap of dust and dirt will accumulate and soon enough, there’d be an intrusion of pests – and you definitely don’t wish for that. So the next time you’re cleaning your bedroom and the living room, be sure to give the areas under the bed and sofa a quick clean.
Walls and baseboards
How many of us actually dust our walls? Dust accumulates over time and you’ll find some form of dust layer on your walls, though it might not be entirely visible to the naked eye. Not only are they allergens and irritants, they also actually degrade your paint as well!
To get rid of the dust, dirt and cobwebs on your walls, simply run a microfiber dust cloth over your walls. Once you’re done, don’t forget to vacuum both your baseboards and your floors.
Light switches and light switch plates
Despite being high touch areas, light switches usually don’t make it to the majority’s to-do-list of cleaning. Delay no further. When you’re dusting and cleaning your walls, make sure that you do a quick swipe of these areas to get rid of dirt and grime build-up. Spray a bit of cleaning solution on your microfibre cloth and gently scrub the grime away. You can also disinfect the areas and wipe them with a paper towel to keep the germs away.
Behind the toilet
Let’s face it, nobody likes to clean the toilet. Unfortunately, it’s something that needs to be done. On top of wiping your countertops, scrubbing the floors and cleaning the toilet bowl, be sure to also clean behind the toilet seat or the flush. If left unattended, you’ll only leave a perfect spot for dust and grime to build up, manifesting even more germs in your bathroom.
The trash can is where all the rubbish eventually goes to – all the more reason why you should never exclude it from your cleaning to-do list. Throwing old food and the like will only invite germs to manifest, infecting your trash bins with germs and diseases. Besides eliminating germs, cleaning your trash bin regularly can get rid of the funky and foul odour. You can even take the extra step by sanitising these bins, effectively keeping you and your family safe.
At times, life can get very hectic and overwhelming.
