How often do you clean the light fixtures in your home?

The weekends are the most common cleaning days within the American household. As floors are vacuumed, dishes are washed, and clothing is washed, it’s so easy to do the same basic cleaning every week. But when was the last time you’ve cleaned the areas you don’t think about? Here’s a quick list of five household items that are easily forgotten.

Home Gym

If you go to the gym every day, you habitually clean equipment once you’re workout is completed. This is done by everyone, but some people neglect to clean their equipment in their home gym. It’s so easy to focus on hitting your goals rather than focusing on the sweat on those weights. Do yourself and your house a favor and clean your gym equipment.

Electronic Devices

How many hours are you on a technological device each day? Have you looked at the screen after making a phone call seeing all the grease and dirt? Even though these products are used every day for interaction or laziness, they are the least likely to be cleaned. Other technological devices that should be cleaned are your keyboard, house phone, TV screen, even tablet device. 

Ceiling Fans and Light Fixtures

Just reading the title, we’re pretty sure you forgot this was a necessary spot you were supposed to be cleaning in your house. They are two of the most forgotten spots in your house that equally contains dirt and never gets cleaned. Looking into the light can often hurt our eyes, thus making it hard to see the dirt that can be surrounding it. Don’t let this be your excuse anymore! Start cleaning your fans early!

Shower Curtain

You may have forgotten about it now, but soon, you’ll realize how dirty your shower curtain was and why you needed to clean it earlier. Just because this item has soap and water suds dripping down the curtain doesn’t mean that dirt is still not exposed. The damp area can also be the reason why it gets dirty quicker. Add hard water stains and dirty soap, you have a field mind for bugs.

Bed Sheets and Pillowcases

It’s so easy to lay down every day for bed and get up to go to work, but hard to remember how much dirt you’re putting on your sheets and pillowcases every day. This is our last household item you may have forgotten to clean. These items need to run through your washer machine and dryer at least once a week for effective cleaning. Think about it: your bed clothes contain skin cells, hair, body fluids, sweat, dust and any other dirt that could be accrued in the process. Take the necessary steps to keep your bed just as clean as your body.
