5 Areas You Usually Forget to Clean

It’s hard to find the time to clean your home when you work 40+ hours every week. And when you do get the chance to clean, you may often try to do it quickly to save time and effort.  This can result in areas you often overlook or forget to clean. Here are some examples:

Chances are you dust the shelves but skip the books. Don’t. Left untouched for years on end, paper deteriorates at a faster rate. Once a year, remove the books from the shelves and dust them along the spines and tops, making sure to flip through the pages; this discourages paper deterioration. Source: MarthaStewart

Outdoor Lights
These things go through it all — winter, summer, spring and fall. Take down your fixtures and use a glass cleaner to clean the panels. It may also be a good time to replace your light bulbs. Source: HuffingtonPost

Washing Machine
Have your clothes lost that fresh scent after running through the wash? It’s time to clean your washing machine. While every machine is different, you can clean your washing machine in just one cycle. Try pouring a mix of white vinegar with baking soda into your washer, and run the cycle on hot. You can also keep your washing machine extra clean by leaving the lid or door open between uses. Source: RealEstate.USNews
