Life gets busy, and cleaning takes time. While doing laundry and washing dishes are necessary evils, here are the dirtiest places in your home that you should focus your attention on.
- Coffee maker
The water reservoir in your coffeemaker is an incubator of germs that can literally make you sick. Remove the reservoir monthly and scrub with hot, soapy water. And don’t forget to flush with vinegar every few months as well.
- Stair railing
Think of how many times hands touch that railing daily. Wipe It down every month with a disinfecting cleaner, and when anyone in the family is sick or guests visit.
- Remote control
Everyone touches it, often while snacking. Dab a cotton ball in some rubbing alcohol and wipe the remote clean.
Another great home for bacteria, put your toothbrush through the dishwasher to keep it clean and replace it every three months.
- Light switches
One of the dirtiest items in your home, light switches, shouldn’t be missed when cleaning. Spray with a vinegar and water mixture and wipe the faceplate and switch clean.
