As the weather begins to get warmer, many Americans capitalize on this time of the year to deep clean the parts of their house that they've been neglecting for a while. After a long winter inside, there are likely plenty of spots in and around your residence that could use a little extra elbow grease. No matter where in your home you spend your time while you take on your spring cleaning task list, there are a few objects that you should remember to clean.
Lucky for you, we've compiled a simple list of three areas around the house that you don't want to forget while you work on cleansing the entire dwelling in anticipation of summer:
1. The inside of your appliances – While this task may seem tedious and unnecessary, especially if you have hard water or another problem with the quality of the water that comes out of the taps in your house, you probably need to clean the inside of your dishwasher and washing machine as well. Simply turn the machine on while it's empty with the necessary detergent or one specialized for this task and your clothes and clean dishes will thank you later on.
2. The top of your refrigerator – Because few people are tall enough to see the surface up here, it can go entirely uncleaned for years, and the cooking grease combined with layers of dust can make it especially gross up there. Luckily, you can clean this surface easily with disinfecting wipes.
3. Your electric heater – Whether yours comes out only during the winter, of you prefer to use it all year, your space heater can gather dust over time, but it's portability might have caused you to forget to clean it. All this product needs is a damp rag and a little TLC.
