Everything revolves around washing the dishes, vacuuming, dusting, and others. People have the tendency to focus only on the areas that are easily spotted, and yet they are forgetting that bacteria and dirt inhabit every single part of their place, even the ones that we do not pay attention to.
Since everybody wants to live in a clean house, this whole process must be done perfectly, otherwise, you’ll be just living in the dirt. This article will cover all those areas that are often missed while cleaning your apartment.
Rinsing out coffee can really be a nasty piece of work, however, if you use it frequently (especially every single day), you have to make sure that it is clean. More importantly, if you own a typical one, then you should clean it as soon as you’re done using it. How does this entire process look like? Firstly, you should gently rinse the device with lukewarm water and any soap. If you want to ensure you have really done a good, meticulous job, then it is recommendable to utilize white vinegar and water to thoroughly clean it and then, run another circle with water to get rid of that strong smell. All these things will help you keep your coffee maker well maintained and you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite drink without worrying that it’s not clean enough.
We all know how crucial it is to clean your bedroom pillows, but people frequently forget about the throw pillows that can often be seen on our sofas. Although you do not put our heads on them, you probably use them for your feet, after a long, exhausting day or when you are watching a favorite movie.

Now, keep in mind that these pillows soak up as much as (possibly even more) dirt, dead skin, and dust mites as your bedroom pillows. Therefore you mustn’t overlook them when you are cleaning your house.
Whenever you are cleaning your living room, clean them too. Remove pillow covers, put the new ones, and used covers place inside the washing machine and wash them according to the instructions.
Have you noticed that your clothes don’t smell as good as it used to? If so, have you wondered why? It means that you should be focusing on cleaning your washing machine because you obviously haven’t for a while. What can you do? You can combine a baking soda with white vinegar and put this mixture into your appliance and run the cycle on hot. Every machine is different, but usually, all it takes is one cycle to do everything properly.
This is probably the most overlooked spot in your home when it comes to cleaning yet the most touched one for sure! Just remember how often you and anyone who lives (or spends some time) in your apartment touch it on a daily basis.
Doorknobs are prone to bacteria, hence, must be cleaned as often as possible. Once you’re done, it would be recommendable to also polish them.
Now, this is definitely one of the most important places as far as cleaning is concerned. When we say the fridge, we refer to every single part of it. That means, inside, behind it, under, above, as well as coil on the back.
Speaking of the coils, they are also frequently forgotten, which is a huge mistake, because if they get clogged with filth and dust, they cannot work properly, meaning they are not able to release heat which can damage your fridge.
If you want to prevent this, grab a flexible coil-cleaning brush that can reach every part of it. Moreover, it will be of great help when you need to clean dryer vents, air conditioner coils, dehumidifiers, etc.
Yes, we do know that most of them can be washed in your washing machine, but keep in mind that some of them are made out of sensitive materials and require special treatment. That means that you shouldn’t skip them when you are cleaning your home.
Awful things like mold, dust, dirt, and many others can quickly build upon them, so if you want to get rid of them, start at the top and slowly work your way down by utilizing a vacuum cleaner.
Most of us are often too lazy to thoroughly clean our home, but once you see the results, you will realize that it was worth your time. Besides, who says that you have to do it all at once? Still, don’t do only those visible areas, but focus on the ones we listed because they are often dirtier than we thought.
