5 Things You Should Clean Regularly in Your Home

Cleaning your home with eraser sponge products

Our homes can get very dirty without us even realizing it. Over time, there are several areas that can gather bacteria and other germs rather quickly. Sinks, bathrooms, and kitchens are just scratching the surface. These areas of your home and more need to be cleaned regularly to ensure the bacteria does not spread to other surfaces in your home.

Here are 5 things you should clean regularly:

Kitchen Sink & Countertops

The kitchen is used frequently to prepare and cook food. Your stovetop, kitchen sink, countertops, oven, microwave, and other surfaces can easily gather leftover food, crumbs, and other debris. Bacteria and other germs can gather in these places. To combat these germs, Sponge Outlet’s eraser sponges will do the trick!

Bathrooms

Your bathrooms can also gather germs. Believe it or not, the bathroom sink can get just as dirty as the toilet bowl. Cleaning the bathroom is very important. You have to make sure you clean every area around and inside the toilet, bathtub, walls, sink, faucet, and much more. Our dual melamine eraser sponges and scouring pad can get to the bottom of the grime.

Doorknobs & Handles

We touch our doorknobs and door handles constantly at our homes. Coming in from a long day outside in the summer can bring in germs on our hands. These germs can stick to the handles. Bacteria can build up if we don’t clean them regularly. Besides our eraser sponges, we can provide you with microfiber towels and more to quickly clean off these areas!

Cabinets

Cabinets around your home can gather crumbs, dirt, grime, and dust at any point in the year. Cleaning your cabinets regularly with a microfiber towel will allow you to quickly dust off the debris for a cleaner home. For the hard-to-reach places, simply use our dusting wand!

Laundry Room

This is an important one to clean. The laundry room is consistently being filled with dirty laundry. Germs and bacteria can build up on the countertops and floors. Make sure when you’re washing your clothes in the washer to clean the areas around them.

At Sponge Outlet, we can provide you with high quality cleaning products clean every area of your home inside and out. We encourage you to contact us at 877-776-6430 today or visit us online for more information!

 

Why Cleaning Your Room Regularly is Healthy?

Messy and unorganized bedroom

Cleaning your bedroom can be a difficult task to keep up with. Whether you live in a home or an apartment, your bedroom is a place that requires regular cleaning. Your bedroom is where you sleep and come to relax. If you live with other people, you’ll most likely spend more time in your room. Cleaning your bedroom can only benefit your life and your health.

The Health Benefits of Cleaning Your Bedroom

Dust can gather on many surfaces in your bedroom such as dressers, the floor, closets, nightstand, and much more. Dusting is an important cleaning task that needs to be done regularly. When you clean the dust in your room that has gathered, you’re benefitting your health. Dust can cause breathing problems and bad indoor air quality. Dust mites can also make their way into your home if you don’t dust.

Your mental health can also benefit from regular cleaning. When you are able to keep your bedroom organized, tidy, and clean, your brain can function properly. Cleaning can reduce stress and anxiety. Many young professionals are working remotely in their homes or apartments due to the change of workspace caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. If your bedroom is your workspace, keeping it tidy will allow you to be more productive with work.

How Should I Clean My Room?

First, it’s very important to keep your room neat and tidy. This means, doing laundry and putting it away immediately is crucial. Keep your surfaces free of dust and garbage. Organize your belongings, and make sure your workspace is clear of any material distractions.

By using our microfiber towels, you’ll be able to eliminate the dust, scuff marks, dirt, and other debris that has gathered on surfaces in your bedroom.

Now, you may be wondering what cleaning products are the easiest to use when you’re cleaning regularly. At Sponge Outlet, our non-toxic cleaning products such as the monster scrubby, melamine eraser sponges, and dust wands will help to clean regularly and thoroughly.

Cleaning Your Desk for Home Use

Working from home can be very convenient when you have time to be alone in your own home office. The key to getting work done is to keep your desk clean and organized, so it doesn’t give you any anxiety or stress during the work week.  At the end of a long day, it can be easy to get up and leave work without cleaning up the space in front of you. It’s recommended to clean up your desk even after you work to eliminate germs, dust, and other particles.

Eating at Your Desk

We all eat at our desks on occasion, especially if we’re in work mode and don’t feel like stepping away to take a break from the work. If you’re done drinking that cup of coffee, rinse out the mug. If you’re done eating the food in that bowl, get rid of it. Make sure to get rid of your food or scraps after you are done. Clean up the space.

  • Purchase an eraser sponge, a good cleaning solution, clear your desk completely off, and wipe it down. This will help ensure that dust, grime, crumbs, and germs are eliminated.

Remove the Dust

You want to protect your technology from dust settling in. You can easily wipe down a computer or laptop with a microfiber towel. It won’t scratch the screen and it won’t leave behind small particles.

Reorganizing the Desk

After a successful day of working from home, it’s important to reorganize your workspace to get it ready for the next day. We tend to keep things “just in case” but if you haven’t used that memo pad in four years, you probably don’t have a purpose for it.

Sponge Outlet

Sponge Outlet provides cleaning products for all of your needs. If you’re in need of natural cleaning products to help clean your desk at home efficiently and accurately before the next day, contact Sponge Outlet at 877-776-6430 today to get more information on our cleaning products!

 

Keeping Your Desk Clean

Keeping Your Desk Clean

If you’re like most people, a clean, clutter-free workspace will allow you to be less distracted and ultimately get more done. Plus, with the office cold going around this time of year, it’s important to regularly disinfect!

But, many of us struggle to keep the desk area of our homes or offices completely neat and tidy. Here are some tips on how you can keep your desk clean, to help promote a successful, focused and germ-free workspace. Try a few of these out, and we bet you’ll start to get through your to-do list a bit faster!

Dust & De-Crumb

Chances are, the last time you gave your workspace a good, thorough cleaning (and not just a straightening up) was more than a couple of weeks ago. If you’re trying to maintain a clean, germ-free environment, regular cleaning is important. Start by creating a dusting regimen.

Every Friday evening before you leave the office (it can be Monday or Tuesday, or any day of the week that works for you), use a dust can and a microfiber cloth, to clean your workspace and rid the area of dust and crumbs from yesterday’s mid-day snack. You’ll thank us on Monday when your workspace is clean and tidy, and ready to help you tackle the week.

Magic Erase

For the areas that you touch most frequently, like the corners of your desk and the tops of your filing cabinets, take a magic eraser, to the area and gently buff away finger prints and other heavy grime. You might not think the area needs attention, but trust us, a little magic eraser will make your desk look like it’s brand new!

Disinfect

Once everything is erased, and dusted, it’s time to disinfect. Cnet says that keyboards can contain as much bacteria as a toilet seat—yuck! Unplug your keyboard and your mouse from your computer, remove any batteries that they might have, and give everything a once-over with a microfiber cloth and a bit of disinfectant spray. You can also use antibacterial wipes, or a sponge with warm water and a drop of antibacterial dish soap.

Keeping Your Desk CleanDon’t Forget: Computer Screens

Computer screens can get dusty throughout the course of the week. Gently wipe down your screens with a dry microfiber cloth, regularly. Microfiber is soft enough to remove any dust in the area without damaging your screens!

Don’t Forget: Computer Cables

Dust can also build up on your computer cables—when’s the last time you dusted everything underneath your desk? Build ups in this area can trigger asthma and allergies, and give your office and overall dingy feel. Make sure to tackle this area, every other week or once a month, with a microfiber duster.

In a Pinch: Scotch Tape

If you’ve got some leftover lunch crumbs on your desk or keyboard, but you’re out of desk dusting spray, wrap a few inches of scotch tape around your fingers, and use it to lift away pesky crumbs before depositing them in the trash.

Deep Clean: Remove the Keys

Apartment Therapy takes keyboard cleaning to the next level.  How clean is it, after all, if you haven’t checked under the keys? If your keys are removable, use a small screw driver to pop them off and dust and remove crumbs and debris from underneath. Before you pop off the keys, snap a pic of how it looked before the deep clean, in case you forget where the ALT and CTL buttons belong!

Desk Phone

Do you wipe down your cell phone a few times a week? Don’t forget your office phone! It’s probably dustier than it is grimy, especially if you usually use your cell phone to make work calls, but it needs special attention nonetheless. Unplug, and use an air canister or a microfiber cloth to remove dust.

MousepadKeeping Your Desk Clean

Spilled coffee on your mousepad lately? Flip it over to see if you can toss it in the wash; if not, use a cloth or a sponge with mild dish soap to get rid of any stains. And if it’s too far gone, consider asking your office manager to order you a new one!

Desk Calendar

If you have a calendar on your desk, there’s one thing you should know: cleaning underneath it is as important as keeping it up to date! Lift it once a week and wipe up any crumbs.

Bits & Bobs Tray

For those of you who tend to let things accumulate on your desk, a great way to keep it looking neat and tidy (and to make disinfecting a breeze) is to grab a tray from your local office supplies store to hold all your spare paperclips, business cards and push pins.
