Everyone takes harmless shortcuts when it comes to cleaning the home. But are they really so harmless?

Here are a few things many of us skimp on when it comes to cleaning and how to clean them right.

1. Coffee pot

Washing with water and soap after each use prevents bacteria buildup. (Rawpixel pic)

Many assume that a simple rinse does the trick when cleaning the coffee pot.

But residue build-up can lead to the growth of bacteria, which could make you sick. Make sure that you wash your coffee pot thoroughly with water and soap after each use.

2. Windows

Newspaper or coffee filters make excellent window cleaners. (Rawpixel pic)

Cleaning windows on a sunny day makes an unpleasant task even harder. The sun causes the cleaner or water to dry quicker, which can increase those horrible streaks.

You might want to consider using newspapers or coffee filters to wipe windows as they prevent streaks and do not leave behind lint like a cloth would. Kaodim has professionals on standby to clean your windows if it is a task too far for you.

3. Mirrors

The technique to clean a sparkling mirror is similar to that of windows. (Rawpixel pic)

Like the windows, there is a technique involved to ensure the mirror is cleaned thoroughly. Again, newspapers or coffee filters are your best friends for a sparkling mirror.

4. Toilet brush

The toilet brush should be disinfected after every use. (Pexels pic)

Giving your toilet a good scrubbing and placing the brush back inside the container is super unhygienic and causes the growth of bacteria. Soak the brush in disinfectant for a couple of hours after each use.

Now that you are aware of some of the things you have been missing out around the house, you may find you need some help with the cleaning up. If you need extra help, Kaodim has professionals on standby for all your cleaning needs.
