When it comes to cleaning the house there are a number of spots most of us are guilty of missing. While there are plenty of places we scrub every single time, there are a few that we seem to forget about. 


When doing your cleaning this week, don’t forget to give the following places a wipe.


1. Behind the bed

When you move the headrest don’t be surprised if you uncover a greasy, stained wall...


2. The cabinet shelves

It may look pretty but upon closer inspection you are sure to find a few cobwebs and a layer of dust coating your best china.



3. The window sill

Cleaning the windows is hard enough without getting the cream cleaner on the window, but it will make them look a lot better.


4. Behind the couch

Most of us are guilty of vacuuming around the couches and not moving them to get at the grime underneath. Once a week pull out the chairs and give them a quick clean - the more frequently you do it the better.



5. Under the fridge

Be honest now, when was the last time you moved the fridge and gave it a good clean? Now we don’t mean you should do this daily or even weekly, but every couple of months will stop dirt building up.


6. The remote control

Just like your phone the remote control can become a haven for germs and bacteria, so make sure you give it a wipe with a disinfectant cloth every few days.
