However, if you think about hygiene and health, you shouldn’t neglect cleaning household appliances and appliances. Here’s a guide from WebMD, the American Health and Medicine portal, on how often to clean and how to clean appliances and appliances that fill your home.
Cell Phone: Everyday
We touch our phones dozens of times a day. In the fingerprints left on the screen of the phone, all sorts of dirty things and even germs adhere to it. Make it a habit to wipe at least once a day. The best way to kill germs is to use alcohol, but it’s also a good idea to check if there is a method recommended by the manufacturer to avoid any possible damage to your phone. Of course, the case must be cleaned.
TV remote control: once a week
First, remove the battery. Soak a cotton swab in soapy water and wipe the area around the button. Mix 2 water with 1 vinegar and wipe the entire remote control. When inserting the battery, insert it after the area is completely dry.
Refrigerator: Once every 3 months
To prevent the growth of germs, empty the refrigerator every three to four months, and clean the shelves and walls with a liter of water dissolved in 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Wash it with water one more time and put the food back when it’s dry.
Dishwasher: Once a month
Put 1 cup of baking soda in the bottom bin and 1/2 cup of white vinegar in the top bin, and run it in normal mode. Clean this way about once a month.
Toothbrush: Once every 3 months
After about two or three months, the bristles wear out and the teeth are difficult to clean. If it has worn down before that, you will need to replace it with a new toothbrush.
The more often you use the toilet, the more often you need to clean it. Wash it every day with a toilet cleaner and a toilet brush, and meticulously wipe it deeper when cleaning the bathroom once a week.
Washing machine: once every 3 months
Any product that uses water is at risk of mold growth. After each use, clean the door of the washing machine and the rubber packing that is inserted into the door. Once every 3 to 4 months, put 1 cup of bleach and turn it with hot water to sterilize. At this time, do not put clothes.
Household: once a month
If you have spilled food, etc., you should clean the soiled area immediately. For furniture covered with cloth, carefully vacuum the cushions and every corner of the furniture once a month. Steam cleaning once a year extends the life of your furniture.
Kitchen countertops: daily
Just because it is invisible is not clean. If you don’t clean and wipe each time after each use, the next time you cook, you can get bacteria left on the countertop.
Kitchen ceiling pan: once every 3 months
Dust accumulates well in the ceiling fan. If you’re in the kitchen, you can get grease. If you see any dirt or grease, you can wipe it off on the fly, and it’s better to clean the wings and body part every 2 to 3 months with a damp cloth and multi-purpose detergent.
Carpet: once a week
Once a week, vacuum large carpets and wash small rugs and floor mats. Dust accumulated on the carpet can cause allergies.
Makeup brush: once a week/once a month
Sponges and brushes used for makeup are prone to germs. Everything that floats in the air, not just your skin, sticks to it. Brushes used for wet makeup are cleaned once a week, and brushes used for dry makeup are cleaned once a month. Wash with mild soap and warm water and dry overnight.
