If you consider how many times a light switch is touched, you wouldn’t neglect to clean it. But light switches are among items many people forget to wash, according to a professional cleaner interviewed in Good Housekeeping.
Doormats are another commonly neglected item. As the entrance of a building is the gateway for people bringing in germs on their shoes, regular cleanings of entrance mats and rugs are important. Remote controls need a regular wiping down, while books and plants are dust-catchers that could use a regular dusting. And don’t forget to wash and sanitize—or replace—your cleaning equipment, such as mop heads, sponges, and dust cloths.
