Do you take great pride in your home being perfectly neat and tidy? Or do you prefer to clean right before guests arrive? While it’s true that modern life is hectic and often relentless, we all try our best to keep our homes clean and tidy – well, as best we can anyway!
But even if you pick up your feather duster on the regular, there might be some places that you’re actually forgetting to clean! Don’t believe me? Read on for 6 places you’ve probably never thought to clean before!
Those skirting boards
Those trusty old skirting boards do a good job of protecting your walls and covering up the joint between your floor and your walls. A good set of skirting boards can make any room look elegant and stylish – as the stunning, detailed range at skirtingsrus.co.uk will show you. But they’ll also the equivalent of a shelf at floor level and they do a great job of collecting all the dust, dead skins cells and grime that we kick up on a daily basis. When was the last time you cleaned yours? Try giving them a quick dust once a week to keep on top of it.
Your photo frames
Is there anything better than displaying your favourite family moments for everyone to see? However, when the faces become obscured by dirt and dust, it kind of looses it’s magic! Keep those memories alive by remembering to wipe down and clean your photo frames thoroughly. Keeping them clean also means that your photos and the frames will last for longer. Don’t forget the ones on the walls too!
Behind the toilet
I don’t need to go into great detail about what might be lurking behind the back of your toilet…all you need to know is that there’s probably more bacteria back there than there is on the toilet seat! Get some good rubber gloves, a scrubbing brush and mop etc and give it a good clean. Your bathroom will smell fresher in no time!
Just like any ornament, house plants gather dust and grime. So, as well as watering them make sure you’re wiping down their leaves regularly. Not only will this keep them looking fresh, but they’ll also live longer and purify the air around them more efficiently too!
We take them everywhere and we’re lost without them. Who’d have thought that our entire lives could be contained on a device that sits in the palm of your hand? And who would have thought that it would be covered in bacteria! Because we take them everywhere, put them down anywhere and touch them with our grimy hands, our phones are a breeding ground for all kinds of nasties – check out some online tutorials of how you can safely clean your phone without damaging it.
It takes very little effort to switch on the light – which might explain why we don’t remember to clean them! Bacteria and germs from our hands instantly transfers to our light switches, spreading colds, flu and sickness rapidly. Remember to wipe them all down as often as you can!
