Your home has plenty of areas for dirt and grime to hide. Finding them may seem easy. Cleaning them effectively is a different story.
Most homeowners spend plenty of time sweeping, vacuuming, scrubbing, and cleaning areas that are obviously dirty and become so daily. There are other areas that can really get gross in a short amount of time.
Your bathroom vanity cabinets are prime locations for soil buildup.
This is one area of the home easy to ignore. After all, who looks in there besides the someone looking for some face cream or hand lotion, among other items?
The buildup of residues can wreak havoc over time. Think of hairspray that you use daily and that ends up on the top of the cabinet. It's easy to clean when fresh but after 10 or more applications you have a nasty “goo” on the counter. Not to even mention toothpaste and other necessary items that get smeared on the same surface.
Take some time each day to quickly wipe up any residues that land on the surface. Then, take some time each week to open up any cabinet doors or mirrors with storage behind them, remove all objects, and use a household cleaning solution to wipe down all surfaces. After a week, you will be amazed at how much residue has built up in there. Imagine what could happen after a few months!
Once a month, give your entire bathroom a close look and find those nooks and crannies that can be the host of soil. This could be behind the toilet, in the corners of shower stalls, or where the soap resides on the bathtub edge. All these areas could use a good scrubbing each month, if not more frequently.
All this is besides the typical routine cleaning you give all your bathrooms.
Make it a New Year's resolution to keep every inch of your home squeaky clean. Just spending a few minutes cleaning the untouched parts of your home can help with other spot cleaning. This will help with every day cleaning and cut down on mess.
