There are areas in our home that we can’t help but get overlooked which are supposed to be cleaned at least once a month. We have created a list to remind you.
If you fail to clean your lights and fixtures, it may result in dulling and becoming encrusted with dust. Wipe the fixture with a cloth and remove the globe or pan for a quick shine as well as dumping any bug remains.
It’s recommended to have your washer go through a cleaning cycle once a week, depending on how often you are using the machine. If you aren’t using it as often, it’s recommended to give it wash (both inside and out) once a month. Since most clothes/patterns require a cold wash, hot water isn’t moving through the machine often. The first thing you can do is wash the machine with hot water—bleach included. This will help to kill off whatever bacteria or bugs are currently residing within your machine says Elizabeth Flaherty.
The first thing to do is remove your filter.
Run water over your dishwasher filter to remove most soils. You may need to use a soft brush and dish soap on calcium deposits and other hard-to-remove debris. Don’t use a wire brush, scouring pad, or anything rough to scrub the filter as these materials could damage the filter.
Spot Treat Carpet and Upholstery
Check for spots on the carpet and upholstery and treat any stains you find. Be sure to test the stain treater in an inconspicuous spot before applying it liberally. If it’s been a while since your carpet was last cleaned, it may be time to schedule a shampooing as well says Sarah Aguirre.
The window needs at least once a month of cleaning. Her’ how to do it. Mix one part distilled vinegar to 10 parts warm water in a spray bottle. Wipe down the window with a soft, clean, lint-free microfiber cloth or paper towel to remove dust before you spray your solution, then spray the entire surface. Use your lint-free towel to rub the vinegar mixture and use a second clean cloth to dry your window as thoroughly as possible.
Moving your furniture to vacuum underneath is sure to bring you some lost surprises; money, long lost toys, fruit snacks smashed into the carpet, and food from God knows when. Do yourself a favor and vacuum under all your furniture every handful of months to keep the buildup of mystery items at bay says thedeeplyrootedmom.com.
Clean Ceiling fans also means clean air inside your house. When was the last time you had it dusted? A duster or an old pillowcase can help out in cleaning it off.
Another item that is touched multiple times a day by multiple people – and can therefore transfer any germs from person to person all too quickly. First to remove the batteries, then use a cotton cloth dipped into rubbing alcohol to wipe down the entire controller including the buttons. Dry the remote with a lint-free cloth.
