This is the place everyone forgets to clean in their home and it is actually very dirty

There is a place in your home that you probably forget to clean all the time. If left without a good scrub down, a significant amount of dust and bacteria can build up in this area.

When it comes to cleaning your home, you need to be thorough and precise. You don’t want a nasty build up of dust, bacteria, or mould to take over your home, do you? But did you know that even people who get a kick out of cleaning forget to scrub down two places in their house?

According to Apartment Therapy, most people forget to clean not only their baseboards but also the top of their walls!

Why should you clean these areas?

We don’t think about it enough but baseboards, also called skirting boards, are places the perfect places for bacteria and dust to build up. The same applies to the top of the walls. Given that they’re rarely touched, you wouldn’t normally expect them to collect a lot of dust and microbes—but think again!

In order to make cleaning these areas less of a difficult task, here are some tips and tricks that you should try out.

To properly clean baseboards in your home, we recommend that you first get rid of dust with a feather duster or a clean cloth.

If you have some stains in these areas, don’t panic! All you have to do is mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar in 1 litre of hot water. Take a sponge, soak it with the mixture and clean the affected area. Then wipe it off with a fresh cloth.

You can use a sponge brush that will allow you to catch the dust no matter what shape the baseboard is. Your vacuum cleaner with an adapted nozzle will also do the trick.
