The Most Overlooked Places to Clean in Your Home | Misty Clean
Most homeowners overlook cleaning their doorknobs

While some areas of your home are easy to clean, others can present a variety of struggles. Many homeowners choose to skip over these spots, but every inch of your home deserves a thorough clean. Prevent mildew, dust, and mold from gathering in your home, and discover four of the most overlooked areas to clean! 


Your dishwasher thoroughly cleans your dishes, but it doesn’t clean itself! Experts recommend cleaning your dishwasher at least once a month to prevent the buildup of grime and soap. If you prefer a natural cleaning method, place a cup of white vinegar in a dishwasher safe container on the upper rack of the machine. Run the dishwasher on the highest setting to wash away grease and odors. Once the cycle ends, wipe the remaining residue away with a microfiber cloth. 


If you don’t regularly clean your lampshades, you’re not alone. Most homeowners do not clean their lampshades, but shades can collect dust and dirt over time! Before you clean each shade throughout your home, read the manufacturer’s recommendations for care. Fabric lampshades require different cleaning methods than 


How often do you wipe down the doorknobs in your home? If the answer is “never,” then now is a good time to start. Door knobs accumulate bacteria easily, but cleaning them does not require much effort. Once a week, use an all-purpose cleaner and a microfiber cloth to clean your doorknobs.  

Trash Cans 

Trash cans are regularly exposed to dirt and grime, even if you regularly use a bag or liner. You should clean your trash can once a month, or more depending on its usage. Kitchen trash cans may need to be sanitized more often. If you have an outdoor area, hose out the interior of the trash can and scrub it clean with an all-purpose cleaner and a sponge. If you don’t have an outdoor area, spray the interior of the trash can and wipe it down with a rag or brush.
