Dirty Places In Your Home You Need To Clean by rodeo0070(m): 9:17am On Oct 30, 2013
Germs are everywhere, and no matter how clean you think you are, there are still germs all over your home. In order to protect yourself from certain sicknesses, you should clean your home thoroughly, especially in the areas listed below:

1. Door Handles, Knobs, and Light Switches

The other day I was doing a very thorough cleaning of my house, when I came across a very dirty light switch. I don’t know how I missed it all of these times, but when I cleaned it off I was completely shocked. It was like I just inserted a brand new light switch. These areas are places that everyone touches, yet they don’t seem to be cleaned nearly as often as they should.


2. Clothing Left in the Washing Machine

We’ve all been there: you start washing some of your clothes and then you forget about them. However, if you forget about it for a couple of days, mold could build up. Your wet clothes are a great habitat for germs, so be sure to re-wash them and try again.
3. Personal Items, Such as Remote Controls, Cell Phones and Keyboards

Remote controls, cell phones, and keyboards are all things that you constantly touch with your hands, which are always full of germs. Every now and then you should wipe down these items to help eliminate germs. That said, before you go get all of your electronics wet, make sure that you are cleaning them properly, with the right products.

4. The Entire Bathroom
Make sure to clean your bathroom (especially your toilet) regularly. Not only is it scary/disgusting to use a bathroom that hasn’t been cleaned in ages, but it is also unsanitary. Whip out your mop and mop the floor, and then whip out your disinfectants and brushes and clean that toilet.

5. The Family/Play Room
One of the most active rooms in your home is most likely the family room or play room. You kick back and relax in these rooms, or rough it up and make a mess. You probably don’t always clean your hands before or after hanging out in this room either, which means that there are a lot of germs. Make sure that you are cleaning these rooms as often as needed, and that you are thoroughly cleaning toys as well.

6. Your Makeup Bag
My makeup bag is fairly clean, but I know that it could be better. I happened to go through my sister’s makeup bag the other day to find something that I quickly needed and found that it was incredibly dirty. I didn’t even want to dump it on the ground to find what I needed (she told me to just dump it all out), so I had to set a towel down because of how filthy everything was. Clean out your makeup bag and use what you need.

7. Your Kitchen
There are many reasons for why your kitchen is one of the dirtiest places in your home. Your kitchen is home to dirty dishes (which, lets be honest, may pile up every now and then), soiled wash towels, left-over food on the counter and so on. Make sure to wash the sink, any knobs, the faucet, the fridge, the counters and so on.

8. The Trash Can
This spot in your home is probably pretty obvious. You throw away all sorts of things in your trash can, which can lead to a mess. Make sure that you are carefully places things into your trash can and that nothing falls off to the side, or that the trash bag ever rips.

9. Towels and Dish Rags
Many people re-use rags and towels a couple of times before they wash them, but if these rags or towels have germs on them, then you are most likely just spreading germs around. Make sure that you are using fresh towels when needed.
10. Pet Areas

We all love our pet family members, but they can be dirty. They most likely don’t receive baths as much as humans, and they play outside all day and do all sorts of crazy things while they are out there. Make sure to wash the areas that they sleep or play in, and wash their food bowls as well.

What are you running off to clean first?

1. Inside Your Ceiling: Here you can find different types of Reptiles and Rodents.

2. Your 3-Seater Chair: If you have Kids in your house, then these little fvckers find it easier to dump their stuffs there instead of the trash can.
