4 Spots You’re Forgetting to Clean


You remember to sweep, dust, mop, and do the dishes, but there always going to be spots in your home that are easy to forget to clean; think small nooks and crannies, up-high places, and underneath furniture and other household objects. You’d be amazed at how much cleaner your whole home feels when even those small spaces are taken care of. Here are four spots in your house that might need some cleaning attention.


1. Tops of doors and picture frames. These sneaky spots are a magnet for dust. Use a feather duster to go over the tops of doors and the edges of photo frames to get rid of dust once and for all and provide relief for the allergy sufferers in the house.

2. Indoor plants. Houseplants are another spot where dust can hide. A quick rinse in the shower is beneficial for most live houseplants, but those that are too large or silk can be cleaned too with a spritz of water and a rubdown with a soft microfiber cloth.

3. Between appliances. The spaces between the oven, the fridge, cabinets, and other kitchen appliances are a hotbed for dust, crumbs, and other debris. Move appliances out and vacuum, or use a long duster to reach into these tight spot.

4. The front of the fridge. We’re usually so busy staring inside the refrigerator that we never pay attention to the outside of it, but the front of the fridge is prone to collecting food particles and spills. Use a tough scrubbing sponge to remove stuck-on grime.
