Things we forget in our homes

Things we forget in our homes

It doesn’t matter how often you clean your home there are always some areas which escape attention. With fall cleaning beginning, this is the perfect time to clean all of those missed areas within your home. We’ve made a short list of places in the home we find are the most neglected.

Read below to see if you have missed anything & easy ways to go about cleaning each item.

CouchThe couch is where we hangout with family & friends. If your family is like mine, you probably spend some well needed hours relaxing (maybe even eating dinner) on the couch! Let`s face it, we all love to be couch potatoes, but it`s less enjoyable when the couch is dirty! Over time, crumbs, pet hair, dirt and germs can build up on the couch and make it look dirty. Have your couch Netflix ready by vacuuming under the cushions to remove all debris, washing the cushions & throw pillows and, spot clean the upholstery to remove stains and dirt.

Washing Machine – If you leave your washing machine uncleaned for too long, it will start to build up a lot of dirt and grime.  Ultimately, this will mean that it won’t clean your clothes quite as well as it should and may start to smell! But don’t worry, it’s easy to clean, all you need to do is add a cup of vinegar to the drawer where you would normally put your laundry detergent, or in top loading machines, the fabric softener cup. Set it to spin as normal, and it will be all clean once finished.

Dishwasher – Your dishwasher is responsible for cleaning all of your pots, pans & dishes; but what happens when your dishwasher becomes tired & clogged, is it really cleaning as well as it should? You must remember to clean it or else it will start to leave your dishes dirty and no one wants to eat off dirty plates! Thankfully, it isn’t too hard to clean it. All you will need to do is place a bowl full of two cups of white vinegar in it without any other pots or pans. Then simply turn it on so it does a regular cycle. Once it has finished, you can take the now empty bowl out and you should notice that the inside of the dishwasher looks nice and clean!

Couch – The couch is where we hangout with family & friends. If your family is like mine, you probably spend some well needed hours relaxing (maybe even eating dinner) on the couch! Let`s face it, we all love to be couch potatoes, but it`s less enjoyable when the couch is dirty! Over time, crumbs, pet hair, dirt and germs can build up on the couch and make it look dirty. Have your couch Netflix ready by vacuuming under the cushions to remove all debris, washing the cushions & throw pillows and, spot clean the upholstery to remove stains and dirt.

Drains – Cleaning the drains in your kitchen and bathroom is a very important job as it will prevent them from clogging up & becoming smelly. The easiest way to do this, while thinking of the environment,  is to pour some baking soda down the drain and follow with a couple of cups of white vinegar. It will fizz up into the sink slightly, and will have cleared out the drain in the process.

If you`ve missed these few items, then get cleaning!
