We’re all used to cleaning certain places in our homes and neglecting others. Like clockwork, we concentrate on certain nooks and crannies till we get it all cleared out for the day. Our cleaning usually happens every week, perhaps when we have time on our hands over the weekend. But there are certain places that end up cumulating dust and are left unnoticed. We must ensure we pay attention to these areas of the home that are left unattended to and harbour germs.
It’s very easy to forget the inside of your lampshades while doing your weekly cleanings. It seems so insignificant and dust cumulates under there without being undetected – perhaps this is why we avoid it because we often clean the noticeably unclean things first.
Using a lint roller or an old pair of cloth or tights should do the trick in cleaning your lampshades.
This is one place in a room that is quick to accumulate dust and be left unnoticed. It usually is part of the barrier between the indoors and outdoors, and because of this, it gathers dust that could cause allergies in your home.
To remove the dust, use a slightly dampened cloth to run over it carefully, going through all its nooks and crannies.
Picture frames are often a neglected area as well, especially bed-side pictures. Use a dampened cloth to carefully remove dust from your frames. The glass section of the frame should be wiped with your usual glass cleaner or with warm vinegar and water.
Inside of Drawers
We are continuously seeing a pattern in this list – neglected parts of the home are the hidden and unnoticed areas to visitors. These undusted places in our homes become our “dirty little secrets” – literally. But as explained, these dirty places are harbour grounds for germs that cause health issues.
The inside of the drawer is one of such places that need dusting. Use a damp cloth and clean it up, leave it open for a while after dusting in order to air it out.
So there you have it, these are places you shouldn’t miss while doing your weekend chores.
What are the other places you’ve found that you often neglect while dusting/cleaning?
