Here are 3 commonly used objects that you never clean but are very dirty

Some objects we handle every day are hardly ever, and sometimes never, cleaned. Here are three of the most commonly used things around our house that we often neglect while cleaning up and you'll be surprised by some of them.

Whether you live alone or with your family and furry pets, a cleaning ritual is a must. Many people prefer to take time during the weekend to vacuum the house, do the laundry, and clean dusty and dirty surfaces. How intensive the cleaning process is depends on every individual, but even the most meticulous people forget to clean these three things which can be a breeding ground for bacteria.

Try to estimate how many times you have used the light switches in the rooms in your house or apartment. It’s impossible to come up with a number because that’s how often we use it.

Don’t just wipe down your kitchen counters and floors—give your switches some love too.

Apart from our smartphones and our switches, the next most used and necessary item in your house is probably the remote control of your television. Now, if you like to grub while watching Netflix, chances are your remote control is full of tiny food particles. Not only that, but it's an item we frequently drop, and sleep, sneeze and cough on.

When cleaning the remote, be sure to take off the batteries first. You can then use some rubbing alcohol to disinfect and be sure to get in between all the buttons—that’s where all the build up is!
