World Class Weekly #24, Four Cleaning No-No’s

Folks we know that you’re trying your best to keep your home clean and tidy, but there are some tasks that are left woefully undone. Or, there are some tasks done in a manner that actually leave your home less clean than when you started. So we’re here with a 4 eezy-breezy pointers on what you can do (or stop doing) to take your home’s cleanliness to the next level. Let’s dive in!

  1. Neglecting your biggest “touch points”  faucet handles, door knobs, flush handle etc

    These things tend to be the germ-iest in the house, so be sure to hit ’em with a sanitary wipe every once in a while!
  2. Using dish soap on your wooden cutting board or cast iron skillet

    Can you do it? Yes. Should you do it? Only if you actually know what you’re doing/how to do it. These porous natural materials can be easily damaged but the unskilled hand.
  3. Neglecting your coffee maker
    According to Eat This Not That, “If you use your coffee maker every day, it should get a good cleaning about once per month,” says McGee. “Coffee grounds leave residue in the brew basket, and water stains and bacteria can collect in the brewing components.”
    The brew basket isn’t the only culprit of trapping bacteria. According to a study on germs in the household led by the National Science Foundation, 50 percent of households observed had yeast and mold lying within the coffee maker’s reservoir, which is the chamber that holds the water. Yuck!”
  4. Using dirty sponges.

    These cleaning superheroes won’t, in fact, be that helpful if you don’t sanitize ‘em every few days (and replace them every month). To do this, soak your sponge in water, place it in a microwave dish, then heat it on high for a minute.  

There you have it, folks. We’re sorry to add to your list of chores, but hey… We’re always around to offer a skilled hand. Just give us a call at (804) 201-4010
