10 Forgotten Things to Clean in Your Home for a Sparkling Space4 min read

Who doesn’t love a clean and organized home? But no matter how hard you scrub and clean there’s always something left to do. This is why here is a list of the top ten forgotten things to clean in your home so that your home can be truly clean and hygienic.

  1. Ceiling Fans and Light Fixtures

Let’s take the top-to-bottom approach! Starting with light fixtures and ceiling fans, you would be surprised by the amount of dust and grime your ceiling fans and light fixtures can accumulate. You can clean them in a pinch by using a microfiber cloth or a duster with an extendable handle when you need to reach those high-up spots. Additionally, you can improve the air quality and brighten up your rooms by cleaning light and air fixtures.

  1. Baseboards and Crown Molding

Baseboards and crown molding are like the frames of your walls and are unfortunately often overlooked during cleaning routines. Using a clean rag or a microfiber cloth dipped in milk cleaning solution wipe the baseboards and crown moldings down to remove any buildup of dust or dirt. Want to hear a plus? This will also enhance the overall look of your space almost immediately.

  1. Inside Appliances

Often the interior of ovens and refrigerators is not taken seriously. Well, now is the time to deep clean inside your appliances by removing drawers, shelves, and racks and getting on your knees for a thorough scrub. Don’t forget the inside of your microwave. Deep cleaning your appliances will not only improve their efficiency but will also prolong their lifespan.

  1. Under Furniture

Heavy-to-move pieces of furniture have a habit of hiding dust bunnies under them. Use a vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool attachment to reach hidden areas under sofas, beds, cabinets, and wardrobes. You can prevent the accumulation of allergens and dirt by regularly vacuuming and cleaning under furniture and see just how pristine your home looks.

  1. Window Tracks

Window tracks are a trap when it comes to collecting dead insects, dirt, and other debris. You can use a vacuum cleaner to remove loose particles and then use some elbow grease to scrub them with a mixture of vinegar and water to clean them effectively. Remember, you’re not only cleaning your window tracks but you’re also making sure that your windows operate smoothly.

  1. Showerheads and Faucets

Over time you might have noticed that your shower heads and faucets don’t have the same water pressure as they did before. This happens because of mineral deposits that can clog your bathroom fittings. You can remove this build-up by using a descaling solution or you can soak your faucets and shower heads in vinegar overnight. You can also wipe your faucets down with the clothes soaked in vinegar to give them that new-like shine.

  1. Trash Bins

Trash bins are often overlooked in cleaning routines, which is a huge mistake because they can be a breeding ground for bacteria and the source of unpleasant odors if left unattended so wash them regularly with hot soapy water or disinfectant wipes to keep them fresh and hygienic.

  1. Air Vents

When it comes to maintaining indoor air quality, air vents play a crucial role. These circulate clean air throughout your home but if not cleaned regularly they can get clogged with dust and debris. A vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment or a damp cloth will work wonders in removing buildup from vents.

  1. Mattresses

Mattresses are often neglected when it comes to cleaning but they deserve a deep clean too. Vacuum your mattress regularly to remove any dust mites, dead skin cells, or other allergens that can accumulate over time. You can also use a mattress protector for added cleanliness.

  1. Electronics

We rarely clean our electronic devices such as tablets, smartphones, laptops, and remote controls. These are touched frequently and need to be disinfected ASAP. Use disinfectant wipes or microfiber cloths dampened with isopropyl alcohol to sanitize these gadgets regularly. Cleaning electronics not only removes germs but also prolongs their lifespan.
