Do you know the dirtiest places in your home? Let’s look at the most common dirtiest places in a home that many homeowners forget to clean.
According to an article at purewow.com, “Cleaning Tips”
“The Walls Behind the Toilet: Spray from flushing makes this one of the grossest spots in your house–and one you might not notice if you don’t, well, stand to pee. Make this part of your regular cleaning routine by spritzing the area with all-purpose cleaner, allowing it to sit for a few minutes and then wiping with a microfiber cloth or paper towel. And get into the habit of closing the lid in general, because with every flush of the toilet, particles of water (and E. coli) can spray and land up to 20 feet away. (Commence cringing.)
Faucet Aerators: Water from your kitchen and bathroom taps flows through what’s called an aerator, and if you haven’t cleaned this before (which, let’s be honest, you probably haven’t), you’ll find a little layer of black, mildew thick-inducing grunge. Every couple of months, remove the aerator and soak it in vinegar for at least 15 minutes. Gently brush all parts with a toothbrush to remove any remaining residue, then screw it back on and drink your tap water mildew-free.
Silverware Drawer Organizer: Under those neat little piles of “clean” knives, forks and spoons is a serious layer of dust and crumbs. Remove everything and wash the organizer periodically–and vacuum the drawer while you’re at it.
The Kitchen Counter: In a misguided attempt at cleanliness, most people routinely wipe their kitchen counters with sponges and dishcloths that are teeming with germs. (According to a University of Arizona study, the average sponge has as many as 7 billion germs on it.) To keep your favorite cleaning tool hygienic, dip it into sudsy water, squeeze the suds through, then rinse and place it in the microwave on high power for three minutes. Then go to town on those countertops.” To read the entire article click here.
