Easy Ways To Clean The Places You Can Never Reach
The cleaning method out of sight, out of mind doesn’t quite work for families with allergies. Sure ignoring those places you can never reach is easier but it’s not cleaner. You know it’s in everyone’s benefit including yours if you take the time to clean them. Not only will you reduce the household dust you will kill allergy causing bacteria while you’re at it.
Behind The Toilet
Simply taking a mop to the back of the just doesn’t work. In fact, cleaning behind the toilet is often a very difficult household task. But it needs to be done. So grab some knee pads and rubber gloves and get to work.
Start by vacuuming the tracks with you crevice tool. Remove as much debris and grime as you can with the vacuum. Then mix a solution of two cups warm water, one teaspoon dishwashing liquid along with one teaspoon of household ammonia. Taking a flexible stiff bristled brush begin scrubbing out the tracks and then rinse with plain water.
The Garbage Disposal
Nobody ever thinks about cleaning the garbage disposal until it starts to smell. And even then you might not know how to really clean it. Start by turning on the disposal allowing it to get out any extra debris that may be sitting in there. Let some warm water run down it for 20 to 30 seconds after turning off the disposal to help flush the rest of the grime away.
Tall Appliances, Cabinets, & Furniture
An extendable static duster is your best friend for this task. Make sure you get one with a pivoting head so that you can adjust the angle to reach to the tops really tall pieces of furniture. If you still cannot reach it with an extendable duster, just grab a step stool to help you out.
When coming in contact with an area that contains a mass amount of stuck on dust you can do one of two things. One you can try the method we discussed for using your blinds. Or option two is that using your step stool you take a bucket of warm water, surface cleaner, and warm water and microfiber rag to the surface. When using the second method be sure to dry the surface with a nice dry cloth to prevent more dust from setting to the wet surface.
