4 Things Most People Forget to Clean Around the House
Dated: June 3 2020
You wash dishes, vacuum floors, wipe down windows and countertops, scrub tubs, clean toilets, and shine floors, but there are some items inside of your home that are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning. Here are some of them.
Your iron may not be germy, but over time it can develop a film that gets burned on. Use a cloth and toothpaste to rub away the build-up. Wipe the iron clean with a damp rag.
The Can Opener
Think about all of the canned goods you open and how the opener comes in contact with the contents of those cans, even if only in small amounts. You might briefly rinse your can opener under the faucet after each use, but that’s not enough. Even if you do clean it consistently using dish liquid, the moving parts can still develop rust spots. To get rid of the rust soak the metal portion of the can opener in white vinegar and scrub it clean using a toothbrush. Rinse the opener and dry it using a hairdryer to eliminate moisture.
Everyone in your family touches the TV remote so there’s no doubt it’s covered with germs. To clean it mix a solution of water and alcohol with a 1:1 ratio. Remove the batteries from the remote, wet a paper towel with the solution, and wipe the remote clean. Give it a final rub with a dry cloth.
Unplug your toaster. If it has a crumb tray remove and dump it—you might be surprised how much has accumulated there. Flip the toaster upside down and shake out the crumbs. Use a clean paint brush to reach inside and dislodge any more crumbs. Flip the toaster upside down again and shake. Clean the outside using a damp soapy cloth. You can shine the stainless steel using white vinegar.
