Spring cleaning is in full swing in many households. Walls are getting wiped down, bedding is being washed, furniture is being moved and baseboards are being vacuumed. But are you forgetting anything?
8 PLACES YOU ARE FORGETTING TO CLEAN BUT NEED TO!
#1) SINK DRAIN – Sink drains can become clogged with mold, mildew, hair and gross black sludge. Make sure the sink drains are clean and not in threat of clogging.
#2) KITCHEN HANDLES – Everyone touches the drawer pulls and handles on the kitchen cabinets. This includes children that haven’t washed after eating or using the bathroom. Wipe these down quickly each day.
#3) PHONE – I don’t know about you, but I have my cell phone with me everywhere. From work, to school to the bathrooms in malls. There have been reports that your cell phone has more bacteria and germs than a toilet seat! And you hold it against your face!!
#4) LIGHT BULBS & FIXTURES – Light bulbs and light fixtures collect a lot of dust. Gently clean these with a dry cloth when the light bulb is off and cooled off.
#5) SHOES – Similar to your phone, your shoes go everywhere. And who knows what is on the ground or floor of the places you are walking. Cleaning the bottom of your boots/shoes and washing shoelaces will keep germs from growing.
#6) BRUSHES – If you have girls in your house, or boys with longer hair, you will notice that there is always hair stuck in the bristles of brushes. Clean these out regularly so that you are brushing clean hair without dirty hair still stuck to the brush.
#7) DISHWASHER – Did it ever occur to you to clean your dishwasher? I never even thought of that. And neither have 75% of Canadians! But after a while, hard water and mineral deposits build up and prevent your dishwasher from preforming it’s best. affresh® Dishwasher Cleaner will power away all the hard water and mineral deposits and can even be used while washing your dishes so you don’t need to worry about using more water. You can also use the affresh® Washer Cleaner to clean the unwanted odor from build-up in your washing machine.
#8) CURTAINS – Curtains are in almost every room in your house. They absorb the scents and smells of things you bake, cook and have in the air. Wash your curtains often in hot water to get rid of smells. If your curtains are not washing machine friendly, vacuum them to remove dust and keep them looking clean.
