Watch the video in which we listed the dirty places in the apartment

one Plants

Regular watering and fertilizing is a necessary minimum in the care of indoor plants. Meanwhile, they accumulate a huge amount of dust from an open window and just from the air, which must be removed. If the leaves are large and wide, just walk over them with a damp cloth and they will look fresh again. It is more difficult to clean small-leaved flowers — it takes a lot of time and effort. Try rinsing the flower under water, giving it a shower this way. So the dust from small leaves will get off much faster.

2 Rubber seals

Seals in refrigerators and washing machines are regularly forgotten or do not consider it necessary to wash at all. In fact, this is one of the first places where dirt accumulates and bacteria breeds. In the future, this can seriously harm the technique: the sealant will lose its elastic elastic shape, and an unpleasant smell will appear in the machine or refrigerator. As a result, the quality of the products will deteriorate, and things after washing will not be so fresh. To save the life of appliances, the rubber bands in the refrigerator should be wiped at least once every 2-4 weeks, and in the washing machine, the remnants of water and detergents should be removed after each wash.

3 Drawers

Everyone knows that furniture needs to be washed not only outside, but also inside. In fact, there is often not enough time for drawers. As a result, the facades look neat from the outside, while crumbs, stains and small debris remain inside. Because of this, flour bugs and other insects can start up there, which will be problematic to eradicate. In addition, mold or an unpleasant odor may form. To prevent this from happening, set aside at least once a month time for cleaning inside the boxes.

four window sills

Window sills are a place of accumulation of dust, fallen leaves from indoor plants and other dirt. You need to wipe them almost more often than all the rest of the furniture and surfaces in the house. As soon as you open the window to ventilate the room, street dust immediately collects on the windowsill. After that, it goes on a trip through the air in the apartment and settles on things, as well as in your lungs. Therefore, it is extremely important to monitor the cleanliness of the window sill, especially if there are allergy sufferers at home.

5 Doorknobs

The most dirty place in the apartment are door handles. This applies not only to the entrance, but also to interior doors. Microbes living on the hands regularly settle on the fittings. And in the hallway and bathroom, additional dirt and microorganisms that live on the street and in the toilet are added to them. You need to wash door handles as often as possible, and to make it easier, choose the simplest form of fittings.

6 Pipes and batteries

Most often, pipes and batteries are not washed because they are in hard-to-reach places. Nevertheless, these surfaces need to be wiped down. Dust settles on them, as elsewhere, and condensation can also accumulate, provoking high humidity. And this, in turn, leads to the appearance of mold and fungus. There is no talk of daily cleaning, but every couple of weeks you should wipe or clean the surfaces.

7 Bin

The trash can is one of the dirtiest items in the house. Even if you collect waste in bags, food particles or spilled liquids will still remain inside the container. They need to be removed every time you take out the trash. General cleaning can be omitted: it is enough to wash off the dirt from the bucket, and treat it with a disinfectant once a month.

eight Switches and sockets

This is another place where germs accumulate as much as on doorknobs. After all, we use sockets and switches all the time, and all microorganisms are transferred to them from our hands. In addition, dirty finger prints can remain on the surface, and plaque will form over time. You need to wipe the parts once a week. This can be done with a regular disinfectant wipe.
