Clean the Dirtiest Places in Your Home
It’s hard to find time to clean when you have a busy schedule. Follow our tips on how to clean the dirtiest areas in your home.
Kitchen: Sink Area
Water alone won’t sanitize months of growing bacteria. Put your toothbrush in the dishwasher, or use a UV cleaner for 10 minutes to get rid of bacteria.
Kitchen: Refrigerator Handle
Living Room: Remote Control
Everyone touches the remote, often times while snacking. Use a cotton swab dampened with rubbing alcohol to clean germs without damaging delicate buttons. Tip: Use disinfectant wipes to clean the remote in a hotel room.
Every Room: Light Switches
Nobody wants to think about it, but when you flush with the toilet lid open, nearby surfaces get contaminated. Your favorite all-purpose spray or hydrogen peroxide is a simple solution to this nasty problem.
Every Room: The Walls
While you’re at it, go ahead and give all of your walls a good scrubbing. Wipe off any loose dust with a soft cloth, then gently scrub off any dirt with an all-purpose cleaner that’s safe for your walls. (Test in an inconspicuous area first if you’re unsure.) Don’t forget the molding!
