If you’re committed to spring cleaning, you probably have your “to-do list” made up. Many of us focus on scrubbing the floors we often neglect, clean hard to reach windows, and clean out that forgotten fridge shelf.
Regardless, there are some common household items that are often neglected during spring cleaning to keep in mind as you start to spruce up your home for the new season.
Wash Your Washing Machine
Your washing machine cleans your dirty clothes which means that your washing machine gets dirty often. When cleaning this spring, give some attention to the appliance that is constantly cleaning everything else. Both the inside and the outside of the washing machine can grow soiled which results in mildew, strange scents, and otherwise. Use minimal water when scrubbing the outside of your washing machine to get grime off.
Décor in Dark Places
You probably have made the bathroom a focus of your spring cleaning. It’s important to scrub out the tub, wipe out the sinks, and disinfect the toilets, among many bathroom chores. However, the details often get neglected when it comes to bathroom cleaning. If you have home décor in your bathroom, it’s important to wipe down and disinfect your décor as well. Items such as decorative soap dishes, jars, and containers need to be wiped down and scrubbed to avoid bacteria from settling in.
Careful with Cleaning Supplies
It might be easy to assume that your cleaning supplies are, well, clean. However, most of them are probably quite filthy especially if you’ve had them for quite some time. From old brooms to outdated toilet brushes, many of your cleaning supplies are probably holding onto bacteria. Before you start your spring cleaning, make sure all of your supplies are clean themselves.
