Test yourself! The video listed which places are often forgotten to clean
one Toilet flush button
Such a trifle is easy to miss during cleaning, but you should not forget about it for a long time. We touch the buttons with not very clean hands, so it is important to treat it with a disinfectant or a damp antibacterial wipe. In addition, dust and splashes from air fresheners can accumulate on it — they also need to be cleaned regularly.
7 kitchen items that are often forgotten to clean during cleaning (and they are dirty)
2 Sockets and switches
On the tops of sockets and switches, dust settles just as quickly as on other horizontal surfaces. Their area is small, but it is worth wiping them with a damp cloth at least once every 2-3 weeks. As for sockets, dirt also accumulates inside the circle — clean these places with the same regularity with a dry sponge.
11 places in the apartment that often forget to vacuum
Dirt on heating radiators accumulates in the same way as on the windowsill. Dust and everything that flies from open windows settle on them. Get into the habit of wiping the surface of the batteries along with the window sills once a week. It is also recommended to clean the radiators inside — not all models can be easily disassembled and washed, but if there is such an opportunity, it is better to use it.
four Cabinet handles
If during cleaning you wipe not only the usual surfaces, but also the handles of cabinets and chests of drawers, you will be able to enhance the feeling of cleanliness. If you forget about them for a long time, a light coating will appear, which will become a breeding ground for bacteria and unpleasant to the touch. Pay special attention to kitchen cabinets — there we often open the doors with dirty hands.
13 of the dirtiest things in the apartment that you forget about while cleaning
5 Control panels on instruments
Pay attention to the microwave start button or rotary switches on the oven. Clean or dirty? These and other elements of household appliances are also often forgotten. The buttons on the hob and multicooker, controls and touch panels of other household appliances — wash them when you wipe the countertop. If significant dirt has accumulated in these places, then clean them with soda or a cleaning spray — the first is more environmentally friendly, and the second is more convenient to wash off.
6 Bottom of glass with toothbrushes
A place some people never go to. In vain! Moisture droplets do not just form a plaque on the bottom — mold and rust appear there. In advanced cases, they move to the tips of toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. Once a week, when cleaning the bathroom, remove all accessories from the glass, add a few drops of cleaning gel, pour hot water. After 10 minutes, it remains to lightly rinse the bottom — and not a trace will remain.
10 Items That Have More Bacteria Than A Toilet (And You Probably Don’t Wash Them!)
7 Shelves in the wet area against rust
Chrome shelves and corners in the shower are a big risk area. Humid atmospheres and direct exposure to water accelerate the appearance of rust on the rungs of such shelves. You can treat them with a standard rust remover about once every 1-2 months — depending on the degree of exposure to moisture. Also try to store sponges and washcloths not on these shelves, they exacerbate the situation.
eight Inserts and chamfers on interior doors
Absolutely smooth doors are rare, usually small chamfers, but there are. Even the slightest ledge will accumulate dust — not quickly, but it must be removed every few months. If the chamfers are deeper or the door is decorated with inserts, then more frequent cleaning will be required. It will be easier to wipe such narrow places with a damp cloth, and not with a rag — it is thinner and will climb into all corners.
