When you enter a room, it's usually clear what needs to be cleaned up. The kitchen sink is overflowing with soiled dishes, pots, and pans, or a mountain of dirty laundry needs to be done.
It doesn't matter if you can't see dirt; in fact, the dirtiest spots in each room of your house are frequently those that are hidden from view. Check out our list of frequently forgotten locations to clean for some cleaning ideas, whether you're getting ready for spring cleaning or just want to ensure your home is as tidy as possible.

Trash Cans

Because trash cans are inherently unclean, cleaning them occasionally is a good idea. Take it outside and clean it with your all-purpose cleaner. To get rid of any bacteria or mildew, scrub the interior. For a while at least, it will make your trash can smell better.

Door Handles

Door knobs are used frequently throughout the day, especially in bathrooms. The next time you get a moment, give them a thorough cleaning to get rid of the millions of bacteria that might be crawling all over them.

Indoor Plants

Most living plants will gain from a brief visit under the showerhead. Use a microfiber cloth or disposable duster to clean each leaf if they are too big to move. Cleaning should also be done to silk plants or preserved blossoms.

Computer Keyboard

Ignore the dirt and debris that gets trapped between the keys. Whenever your fingertips touch the keyboard, they spread (and pick up) germs. The next time you sit down to write an email, wipe it down with a moist towel that has been dipped in an antibacterial cleanser.

Surfaces of furniture

There are typically a few dust bunnies floating about when you look under a bed or sofa, which may be easily removed with a vacuum or dust mop. At least twice a year, dust, dirt, and spider webs should be removed using a vacuum or a dusting wand.

Bath Mats

Every time you wash a batch of towels, wash your bath mats. Like towels, they require time in the washing machine because they collect dirt and epithelial from your body.
