Is Spring Cleaning around the corner?


We all like to think that our homes and wardrobes are clean, and why shouldn't we? We take the time to dust and sweep and mop and vacuum our homes, disinfect our bathrooms and scrub our kitchens, but what if we told you there are places you've probably forgotten all about, maybe since you moved in? Don't worry, your secret's safe with us.

Here are five places in the home you've probably forgotten to clean.

1.Wardrobe Door Frames

Whether your door frames are standard and minimal or have a little added character, dust can slowly pile on top of the smallest of ledges. You may not have known that your door frames are huge dust traps but as soon as you start cleaning them, you'll never take them out of your cleaning routine.

2.Skirting Boards

Whether you decide to vacuum, wipe with a damp cloth, or dust your skirting boards is up to you, but you will absolutely want to keep these pretty borders in mind when you clean your home to get rid of piled up dust.

3.Light Fixtures & Fans

Light fixtures and fans are a haven for sneaky dust and insects to pile up. Somehow, the bugs get caught in closed light fixtures and dust will continue to pile on. Make sure to clean out your light fixtures and fan blades whenever you do a thorough deep house clean and avoid dust build up with an extendable or long handled feather duster.

4.Extractor Fan

There's nothing like cooking with an extractor fan over your stove but how regularly do you clean it? Whenever you cook with the fan is on or not, steam and grease are pulled up and get caught in the vent. Make sure you clean your extractor fan regularly for a wonderfully clean and hygienic kitchen.

5.Big Appliance Linings

The rubber rims in your major appliances such as your fridge, washing machine, and dishwasher allow for an airtight seal. If you haven't had a look in the folds of the rubber seal, go ahead and check it out, but be warned that the grime build up might be a shock.
