If you take extra care to clean your home, you probably have a routine that helps you get to all of the most-used surfaces. While having a house cleaning routine is a great way to keep things looking great, there are some hot spots where germs and bacteria like to hide. Here are a few places you’ll want to make sure to clean next time you take out your cleaning supplies.
- The Bottom of the Toilet- It’s common to clean the toilet handle, lid, seat, and bowl because that’s what we can see. One place we don’t often check is the toilet pedestal and feet. Drips, dribbles, splashes, and other unpleasant things can appear on the bottom of the commode, so it’s important to give the areas under the seat and bowl a good cleaning in addition to the standard areas.
- Light Switches- Light switches are something we touch every single day in most of the rooms in our homes. If your hands are the primary spreader of germs, it only makes sense that the light switch would collect germs, viruses, and bacteria that can transfer from one place to another. Giving light switches a wipe down with a disinfecting cloth will help get rid of some of those germs.
- Kitchen Drawer & Appliance Handles- Most of the time we don’t think about the handles we grab in the kitchen as we’re cooking or doing the dishes because we’re simply going through the motions of a task. This easily leads to the transfer of germs, not to mention it can make the handles grimy and sticky to the touch. House cleaning that includes kitchen drawer and appliance handles will go a long way to preventing illness and keeping your entire kitchen area cleaner.
