We all perform our daily cleaning chores the best we can, however, people often only focus on dusting and vacuuming – and there is so much more that needs to be done. By neglecting some items in your home they become extremely dirty which makes their cleaning harder. But if you tend to forget about certain objects – don’t worry, I will tell you exactly how to clean them without spending too much time or effort (because there are cleaning hacks for everything nowadays)!
What Are The Dirtiest Items In Your Home?
I will share with you the most common items people forget to clean!
- Your Oven
Number one on my list had to be the oven because most people neglect them the most when they are the most important appliance in their kitchen!
The most important piece of advice I have for you is to clean up any spills and never leave them. This is the reason your appliance has burnt food and greasy stains all over it!
Now, if you decided you should clean your oven here is how to do it:
- Remove the racks and soak them in soapy hot water for a few hours
- Mix three tablespoons of water with baking soda so you create a paste then spread it all over the interior of your oven. Let it sit overnight!
- Then, the next morning, fill a spray bottle with vinegar and spray it on top of the baking soda. Any stubborn stains will loosen up due to the reaction vinegar makes with baking soda.
- Your Stovetop
The next dirtiest item in your home is probably the stovetop.
Again, you need to clean up any spills and never let them sit for a long period of time because then cleaning them will become even harder.
If you have a glass stovetop then mix white vinegar with water in a spray bottle then spray the mixture all over the surface. Let it sit for a few minutes then wipe it away.
For other stovetops, you should try sprinkling baking soda all over the surface then adding hydrogen peroxide. Leave it for a few hours then rinse.
- Your Sink
The next thing you rarely clean is probably the sink – and just because you wash your dishes in there doesn’t mean that the sink is clean!
Make sure you spray it with an all-purpose cleaner every day then wipe it with a cloth and rinse!
- Your Showerhead
Now let’s move from the kitchen to your bathroom and focus on the showerhead. When was the last time you cleaned it? If you can’t even remember then it’s time to grab vinegar, pour it in a bag or a bucket then submerge the showerhead in there.
Let it sit overnight then rinse the showerhead with warm water. All limescale, dirt, build-up, soap scum, and other impurities will be removed!
