What You're Not Cleaning

Monday, 17 July 2017 08:14

I know I know, you don't want to be cleaning more. But these are some areas that need some TLC once in a while!


1.Air vents

Living in a rental apartment, you may not be responsible for changing your air filters. You should, however, wipe the vents clean with a dust rag from time to time. This prevents dust from dispersing throughout your apartment whenever your heating or cooling unit turns on. It should also help you breathe easier.

2. Baseboards

Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping floors is an integral part of any apartment cleaning routine. Baseboards, door frames, and other molding in your home should be as well. Clean residue from spills and splashes using a Magic Eraser, vinegar, and warm water.

3.Ceiling fans

Dust loves to accumulate on the top side of ceiling fans, where it is easy to ignore. Use a microfiber cloth, dust rag, or old pillowcase to clean the blades of your fans. This is best accomplished when you haven’t used your fan in a while.


Depending on the material and color of your curtains, dust can accumulate on them for months without your knowing. Some curtains can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Others need to be dry-cleaned. Care is material-specific, so do some research before cleaning.

5.Inside the couch

Keep your furniture clean by vacuuming both the furniture and the floor beneath it. For a thorough cleaning, be sure to remove or pull back cushions. Collect loose change and other random items most likely originating from your pockets, and then vacuum crumbs and debris.

6.Behind toilet

When is the last time you cleaned behind or underneath your toilet? If it’s been a while, use a cobweb catcher or Swiffer-style sweeper to rid these areas of dust and debris the next time you clean the top and inside of your toilet.

7.Washing machine

Washing machines are designed to help you with cleaning, so it’s understandable to forget you should clean them on occasion yourself. If your washing machine smells or the clothes you’ve washed smell funky after a completed cycle, it’s time to clean the machine. A dash of baking soda and some vinegar is typically all it takes to return a washing machine to its clean and odorless state.
