Items in Your Home that Should Be Cleaned Daily

The thought of cleaning daily may sound like a nuisance at first but some items in your home get much dirtier than they may appear. Ahead is a quick list of items and places that should be cleaned daily to maintain a healthy, clean home.


1. Hand Towels

They may appear to be clean on the surface, but experts suggest that they be changed out daily or at least every other day depending on the household size because of their ability to spread bacteria. The bigger your household, the more often you should switch out your kitchen and bathroom hand towels.


2. Kitchen Counters

Kitchen counters are one of the most used surfaces in a home, so wiping them down daily (or after every use) can ensure that germs are being killed and your kitchen countertops are safe for use and food preparation.


3. Kitchen Sink

The kitchen sink sees a lot of action when it comes to bacteria. Wiping the kitchen sink down can guarantee that no food, bacteria, dirt, or debris is left behind.


4. Bathroom Counters/ Sinks

Keeping disinfectant wipes in your bathroom can make cleaning up quicker and easier so that the counters are always clean and sanitary.


5. Toilet Seats

Just like for the bathroom counters and sinks, keeping disinfectant wipes in the bathroom is a convenient way to remember to wipe down one of the most used surfaces at the end of each day.


6. Coffee Maker

A coffee maker is a great place for germs to thrive, so cleaning it every day can keep you healthier and prevent anything from growing (Yikes!). This includes the water reservoir, the filter, and the carafe.


7. Refrigerator Handle

Can you count the number of times you touch the refrigerator handle in a day? Neither can we, so giving it a daily disinfecting can kill off bad germs that might be passing from person to person in your household.


8. Faucet Handles

The same goes for the faucet handles as for the refrigerator handles, they are touched so many times in a day that a good wipe down can kill lingering germs and keep everyone healthier.


9. Electronics

In the 21st century, everyone is using electronics at some point in their day. Your laptop keyboard, smartphone, and TV remote controls could use a quick wipe down with a disinfectant wipe to kill any bacteria that accumulated throughout your day.


10. Make the Bed

This task is a quick way to pull together a room to look clean and organized and is a great way to start your day off productively.


11. Pet Food & Water Bowls

Your pet’s food and water bowls are gathering a lot of debris and bacteria and should be rinsed or washed daily to prevent buildup (your pet will thank you).
