Check These 10 Inconspicuous Areas for Year-End Cleaning at Home

2021 has come to an end! Looking back this 2021, we were so busy with epidemic prevention and work that we often ignored the importance of home cleaning. No matter it’s celebrating Christmas or welcoming in 2022, we should always give ourselves a clean and tidy living environment.

During the cleaning process, don’t forget to check these 10 ”disaster areas” that are often ignored in the home but are actually full of dust and bacteria!

1. Stove

If you enjoy cooking at home, the stove is a must-clean area. The oil stains and food scraps will become stubborn stains on the stove as time passes, which will be hard to clean.

For best results, you can mix vinegar and clean water with 1:2 ratio to ease the process of removing grease and dirt.

2. Kitchen hood

The kitchen hood is important to absorb unwanted food smells. When cleaning, don’t forget to open the kitchen hood to clean the filter and oil box. Clean your kitchen hood regularly to maintain its performance.

3. Washing machine

Bacteria and dirt hide in the washing machine and you can’t see them! To keep your washing machine clean, try to add some white vinegar and warm water, turn on the machine spin for 10-20 minutes, then drain the dirty water. It helps to kill the bacteria in the washing machine.

4. Under the bed

When you lift the bottom of the bed, you will find that there is a thick layer of dust under the bed. Living in dirty air can easily lead to skin sensitivity, bronchitis, asthma, and other diseases. To improve the air quality of your bedroom, the dirt on the bottom of the bed must be cleaned.

5. Carpet

The fluffy touch of the carpet can make people feel warm and relaxed. However, carpets in your home are actually full of bacteria and dust. Besides using a vacuum cleaner to clean carpet surfaces, remember to clean the accumulated sand and dust below the carpet as well!

6. Refrigerator

We always forget the food stored in the refrigerator until it’s expired. When cleaning, in addition to cleaning the area we can see, don’t forget what’s inside your refrigerator. Stale food is bad for your health and also causes bacteria to grow and this will affect other food!

7. Sofa gap

The sofa gap is so inconspicuous and difficult to clean, but they actually accumulate dirt and dust. Try to use a small brush or vacuum cleaner to clean up the dust between the gaps to make sure that every corner is clean.

8. The pillow

Do you know the pillow we use every day is the germiest bedding item? To clean your pillow, you can put it under the sun to allow the sunlight to kill bacteria and remove odors. It is not advised to wash pillows in a washing machine as it is easy to deform and lose its quality.

9. The mattress

We sweat when we sleep, and the bacteria in the sweat will breed in the bed causing the spread of mites and bacteria. You can use Mite Bug Control Spray or an ultraviolet vacuum cleaner to eliminate the mites and bacteria in cotton fabric and maintain your hygiene and health.

10. Dishwashing sponges

The little dishwashing sponge is infested with all kinds of bacteria! An old dish sponge is dirtier than unwashed dishes. Therefore, it is important to change the sponge regularly to ensure the hygiene of cutlery. In addition to dish sponges, kitchen tablecloths are also easily contaminated with bacteria. Wash them frequently.

Clean every angle of your home to ensure your hygiene and health. If you find that there are a lot of household items that are occupying your home space, you can store them in Cube Self Storage! Such as seasonal clothes, electrical appliances, books, etc.

    Posting on behalf of Keith Jardim:
    "The staff and assistants at Cube Storage were very helpful -- explaining procedures,
    … More answering all questions, advising and guiding so the customer was aware of choices, benefits, rules and costs. The staff proved themselves easy to talk to, were friendly, and always made the customer feel relaxed and appreciated. They listened, informed and corrected in a friendly and diplomatic manner that is always welcome in any such business/service because it encourages clear and effective communication. I highly recommend Cube Storage for the post-contract expat who needs to store their personal belongings while transitioning to another location, especially if they require the storage facility to eventually liaise with a shipping company on their behalf. My warmest thanks to all the employees of Cube Storage in Kuala Lumpur."
