Say Goodbye to Refrigerator Door Handle Germs
When family members touch the refrigerator door handle, they leave food particles and bacteria behind. Use a disinfectant wipe containing bleach to wipe the door handle every day. Our Top-to-Bottom Deluxe Clean Checklist at Fabulously Clean highlights our best house cleaning services in the Boise area. This list includes a thorough cleaning of your refrigerator.
Get Rid of Bacteria Lurking on Your Computer Keyboard
Every time a family member touches your home computer’s keyboard, the germs get together and party! Clean the keyboard with a soft cloth and an alcohol-based cleaner designed for computers and other technology. Plus, use a Q-tip to remove dirt from between the keys.
Make Your TV Remote Family-Friendly Again
Do you or your family members change the channel while munching on popcorn, potato chips or other food items? This leaves food particles on the remote control. Cold germs can also reside there. To sanitize the device, wipe it with a special electronics cleanser containing alcohol. This can keep germs from spreading as family members plop down for a favorite show.
Is Your Purse a Dirt Magnet?
The bottom of your purse touches the floors of doctor’s offices, restaurants, and other businesses. Use warm water, a soft cloth, and a mild dish soap to gently wipe the bottom of a leather purse. Be sure to dry the surface completely after cleaning it.
Close the Door on Bathroom Germs
The knob on the inside of the bathroom door can be home to bacteria. Clean the knob once a day with a cloth and a disinfectant spray containing bleach.
Hang-Up on Germs
Think about how many times you’ve popped a snack into your mouth or opened a door, then picked up your cell phone to make a call. In short, lots of bacteria is transferred onto your cell phone throughout the day. To clean it, use a disinfectant wipe without bleach, then dry the device thoroughly.
