Tackling the Dirtiest Spots in your Home

September 13, 2023

Maintaining a clean home requires more than just a surface wipe-down. Often, it's the overlooked areas that harbor the most dirt and germs. To elevate the cleanliness of your living space, pay extra attention to these dirtiest spots on your next cleaning day.

Remote Controls and Gadgets

Frequently used remotes, game controllers, and electronic gadgets are magnets for germs. A disinfectant wipe or a cloth with rubbing alcohol can help sanitize these items, promoting a healthier environment.

Doorknobs and Handles

Door handles, cabinet knobs, and light switches are touched countless times a day, accumulating bacteria and grime. Regularly wipe them down with an antibacterial cleaner to prevent the spread of germs. 

Faucets and Sink Drains

Constant exposure to water and soap can lead to mineral buildup and grime around faucets. Use a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar to keep faucets sparkling. Additionally, give sink drains some TLC by using a drain cleaner to prevent clogs.


Since the handles of your fridge are touched by everyone in the household multiple times a day, clean them regularly with a mild cleaner to prevent the buildup of dirt and grime. Additionally, kitchen and bathroom cabinet handles can accumulate grease and dirt from hands. Use a damp cloth to wipe them down and restore their shine. Plus, toilet flush handles are among the germiest spots in the home. Regularly clean and disinfect them with a toilet bowl cleaner or disinfectant wipes.

Trash Can Lids: 

The lids of trash cans are often overlooked but can harbor unpleasant odors and germs. Wipe them down with disinfectant wipes to maintain a fresh and clean atmosphere.

Remember, a clean home isn't just about what's visible immediately. By targeting these commonly neglected areas, you'll create a healthier and more inviting environment for you and your loved ones. 

"We recently purchased our very first home and could not be more pleased with Ole South Properties and, more specifically, our experience with Alex. Alex completed our warranty and closing day walk through with us and has consistently exceeded our expectations. Since moving in, we have required a few repairs and each time we have reached out to Alex, he and Ole South have acted immediately and with the highest level of professionalism. Being a new homeowner can be overwhelming, but Ole South's pride for their work and Alex's level of care for our family have made us feel beyond grateful that we chose an Ole South property to call home. We love our new home and are so thankful for the entire Ole South team. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a home!"
