Light switches are probably one of the most touched things in your home, unless you have clap activated lights that is. You don’t really notice how dirty they are until you start to clean them. A ton of dirt and germs builds up on light switches, that’s why it’s important to take the time to clean them. If they aren’t all too dirty you can easily use just some all-purpose spray and a disinfectant wipe.

Like light switches, door knobs also get filthy as they are constantly getting touched. However, alongside door knobs door frames also tend to get very dirty. Since they are generally hard to reach, a ton of dust gets accumulated. So, make sure to wipe it down from time to time. Clean the door itself as well.

Yes, you may take out the trash regularly and change the bin liner often, but when was the last time you cleaned the actual can? This warm, moist, dirty environment is the perfect place for bacteria and pests like gnats to thrive. Studies show that your trash can is twice as dirty as the average toilet seat. Scrub with some warm water and detergent, and after it’s all clean and dry, spray it with some disinfectant.

#In and Under Appliances
We are all guilty of cleaning only what we see. It’s much easier. Plus have you ever heard of the saying “out of sight, out of mind”, this also goes for cleaning. But not in a good way. It’s easy to forget that debris and dirt can still build up underneath. While your fridge may look spotless on the outside, underneath it may be full of gunk. So make sure to clean underneath your appliances and inside them. For example, the rubber rim of your blender can build up mold, which you don’t want to be adding to your smoothies.
