5 Home Items You Forget To Clean

home items

Keeping a tidy house is an ongoing puzzle, and despite hustling at our best, some home items tend to be forgotten on the cleaning list.

While we diligently wash surfaces and vacuum floors, certain things often slip through the cracks of our cleaning routines. In this blog, we’ll remind you these items need cleaning too:

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are some of the most common home items that silently stockpile dust and grime over time. 

Turning a blind eye to them can lead not only to a dusty den but also muck up the air you’re breathing. 

To tackle these spinners, hop onto a sturdy step stool and use a feathery duster to gently whisk away that accumulating dust. Wet that feathery cloth with a mix of water and a mild cleaning brew for a real deep clean.

Light Switches and Door Handles

These spots are often given the cold shoulder when it’s cleaning time. 

Light switches and door handles are in constant contact with germs and bacteria, making them secret hotbeds for sickness. 

Squeeze them into your cleaning groove using disinfectant wipes or a mix of water and vinegar. Zoom in on the spots that get all the love, and remember to scrub those switch plates and the area around door handles. 

Reusable Grocery Bags

While being earthy and handy, reusable grocery bags can get grimy if not washed on the regular. 

Many folks forget to give these bags a good scrub, leading to a germ party and some funky smells. 

Most reusable bags can take a machine bath; just check the tag for the deets. Also, consider bags with a wipeable inside or ones made from stuff that doesn’t invite bacteria to set up shop. 

Trash Bins and Canisters

The very bins designed to hold our junk can turn into germ jungles if you don’t show them some cleaning love.

Empty those bins, give ’em a good hot soapy wash and sprinkle in a bit of baking soda to shush the stink. 

Let them air-dry before slapping in new liners or tossing trash back in. This simple task can cut down on bacteria parties, keep smells at bay, and keep your den looking tidy.

Kitchen Sponges and Dishcloths

The tools we use to tackle dish duty and make warm meals in the heart of our homes need a good scrubbing. 

Kitchen sponges and dishcloths can swiftly turn into bacteria battlegrounds due to them getting wet often.

Soak these in a mix of water and bleach or vinegar every so often. Or, toss that wet sponge in the microwave for a minute to give it a good zap. Consider tossing out sponges and dishcloths regularly to keep your kitchen shipshape and stop any nasty bacteria from hitching a ride.

Keeping your home items clean is just as important as keeping the rest of your house sparkling and sanitary.
