Bathrooms and kitchens are always areas that harbour germs.

When it comes to bathrooms and kitchens, she says focus on the cabinet and drawer knobs, pulls, and fronts. In kitchens, she clean the handles and fronts of appliances, such as refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, and toaster oven.

Other areas of the house that should get a good cleaning include those often touched such as:

remote controls

game controllers

keyboards and computer mice

cell phones and landlines

light switches and switch plates

door knobs and doors

staircase railings

Rapinchuk cleans areas in groups, and from top to bottom, left to right.

The most efficient way to clean those pesky most-touched areas is to batch them together… do all of the light switches and switch plates, then move on to clean all the door knobs, all the kitchen handles, etc. This keeps you on task, so you don’t miss anything. If a certain cleaner or cloth works better for an area, use that for the whole house, and if you can’t get through at one time, you go go back to your list.

For surfaces that have things on them, such as the kitchen table or desks, remove all items first and wipe surfaces clean with a wipe or a spray.

To create your own bleach solution, the mix the following:

5 tablespoons (1/3rd cup) bleach per gallon of water or

4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water

“Spray liberally on surfaces and wipe clean with a soft cleaning cloth. Generally speaking, all you need is a little all-purpose cleaner and a microfiber cleaning cloth or bar mop towel to clean most of these most-touched areas. All-purpose cleaner can be sprayed directly on your cleaning cloth and then the area can be wiped clean. Spray, wipe, repeat,” said Rapinchuck.
