How clean is your home? There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who avoid the necessity of cleaning as if they could contract some nasty disease by all the chemicals in the detergents. Then there is the kind who clean the home feverishly as if their life depends on it. The latter of the two will be surprised by the information we have for you today because even they will be shocked by the dirt and grime that builds up, regardless of all of their efforts.
Yes, there are some places that simply cannot be cleaned properly, unless you are aware of them. We hope that you will learn from this list, and therefore give your home the clean that it so deserves!
1. Toothbrush Holders
Can you imagine that? All the bits and bobs that come from your mouth when you are eating which collect in your toothbrush bristles eventually end up in the holder. We recommend soaking the brush holder in hot water and soap and then using a cotton swab or a toothpick to clean it.
2. Your Home Garbage Can
This might seem obvious to some because garbage is called garbage because it’s, well, garbage. There is a lot that goes inside these things, and this means a lot of germs and bacteria will build up even if it is not visible to the naked eye. Make sure that you double bag (with eco-friendly garbage bags of course!) or that you clean up any spillage from fruit juice cartons, rotten fruits or vegetables, and whatever else that oozed after you threw it out.

5. Air Vent in Your Home Bathroom!
This one must be a surprise, how many of you have ever cleaned your air vents? Guaranteed, most of you are lying to yourselves. These things absorb moisture from the air after you have showered or bathed, and this makes any of the dust or grime build up in the vents. This is not only gross, but it can actually cause a blockage of your air vent, preventing it from functionating as it should.
4. Light Switch
Imagine how many times you turn on your light. Now, imagine your whole family, including your little toddler who has worked out how to work the dimmer. There are a lot of grubby hands touching these every day, so make sure you clean them regularly with a disinfectant detergent.
