Keeping your home clean is an important task, and it’s something that needs constant work. While you undoubtedly have a cleaning routine you cycle through, you may not know that your routine could be missing some of the germiest and dirtiest areas of your home.
1. Silverware Tray
A commonly missed spot, this high touch area catches a lot of crumbs. To clean a silverware tray, regularly soak it in warm water with a small amount of dish soap. Alternatively, run it through the dishwasher on the top rack.
2. Coffee Machine
The carafe or reservoir of your coffee machine may house lurking germs. This is because the water reservoir commonly contains germs that can make you sick with illnesses such as staph, strep, or even E. coli. Was the water reservoir and carafe at least once a month with warm, soapy water. Also flush it with white vinegar mixed with water to kill germs.
