  1. Curtains

The first thing that comes to my mind is the beautiful curtains. Curtains cover windows and doors, the places from where most of the dust comes inside the home. Curtains prevent dust and, while doing this, they become dusty and dirty.

We assume that this part of the house does not require frequent cleaning as the other parts needs. This is just your assumption, as the curtains also require frequent cleaning. Most of the curtains are machine-washable, although some require special cleaning. You can soak them before washing in warm water.

  1. Ceiling Fans

It feels very messy to clean ceiling fans. You might have to use a ladder or some stool to clean it if you do not have any vacuum cleaner with some special attached equipment to clean the ceiling fans. Ceiling fans gather a lot of dust.

If you do not clean them regularly, a thick layer of dust has to be cleaned. One of the easiest tricks is to put a pillowcase over the fan blade and wipe the dust off inside of the pillowcase. Do the same with every blade and make your fan dust free.

  1. Underside Furniture

You always clean the floor of your home that is visible. But you do not clean the underside of the furniture like the bed or sofa regularly. Go to the actual deep side under your furniture as this place would surely have dust.

Small spaces like under the fridge or inside the oven can collect a lot of dust, dirt and even food. Clean the under side of your fridge by pulling it out and using a cleaning brush and vacuum, then wipe down the walls, floor and all sides of the refrigerator. Do it with other appliances as well.
