5 Hard To Reach Places In Your Home That You Must Clean Today

Every household has several deep, dark, and dirty corners that are impossible to reach, but do require a clean-up. In this article, we are talking about 5 hard to reach places in your home that you must clean today. And if you are wondering how, we will talk about that too.

1. Curtain Bars

Admittedly, curtain bars are among the most ignored places in a house. We all see them every day, slide curtains over them, and forget about cleaning them.

A significant reason behind this ignorance is that the curtain bars are set up at a height that is not normally reachable. You may need to stand on a stool to reach your curtain bars and clean them.

Also, note that if your curtain bars haven’t been cleaned in a long time, a lot of dust might have accumulated on the surface. It’d be best to use a dry cloth to remove the dirt and then use a wet cloth to wipe for shine and better texture.

2. Ceiling Fans

Just like the curtain bars, ceiling fans are also placed high. For this reason, they may also be neglected during a cleaning session. Ensuring that the fan remains off during cleaning is obvious.

To clean a ceiling fan, you can stand up on a strong stool and remove the dirt with a dry cloth. After that, you can wipe off the fan’s wings and housing with a wet cloth.

3. Window Blinds

With so many sections, sides, and shapes, window blinds can be almost impossible to clean.

Even when the blinds are in your physical reach, it may be overwhelming to look at all the different sections and imagine cleaning them.

Thankfully, here’s an easy way out.

  • Starting off, we can use a microfibre duster or a vacuum cleaner to clear the dry dust off. After that, add three drops of dish liquid to a bucket and add water. Now take a microfibre cloth and dunk it into the bucket.
  • Pull out the cloth and squeeze it to remove excess water.
  • Simply twist the blinds making enough space to wipe each of them with the cloth.

4. Underneath The Bed and Sofa 

If you have a low floored bed or sofa, you would know how challenging it can be to clean up the floor underneath it. In most cases, people somehow manage to broom over 70-80% of the area, and clearly, that’s not sufficient.

Too much dust can cause germs, plus a house for insects and form massive dust particles. To clean such areas, you may need to use a flexible spin mop that can comfortably reach such corners.

5. Sliding Door Tracks

Nobody likes the piles of dirt that add up on the tracks of sliding doors. Whether it’s a sliding window or your shower’s sliding door, the tracks get dirty way too often. Plus, their parts hold the dirt with a strong grip, which is why they can be tough to clean.

If you want to clean them properly, make sure you have enough time to take out the screens and vacuum the entire slider track.

This way, you will be able to get perfectly clean sliding window and door tracks. Shortcuts may not really work in this case.

No matter how much time you spend cleaning your house’s main areas, if the hard to reach corners are still dirty, your home is not completely clean. In this blog, we discussed a few areas of your home that are not easily approachable, but must be cleaned on priority.
