Nine unexpected things to wash and wash every day



Of course, we all love cleanliness and order in the house. But no matter how tidy we are, due to our extreme busyness, we cannot do spring cleaning every day. But some household items require daily cleaning.

Coffee maker

The coffee maker is a breeding ground for a variety of bacteria and mold, so it needs to be cleaned every day. To do this, it is necessary to disassemble it into individual parts - this will help remove coffee residues, as well as oil, which is formed in the process of grinding coffee beans.

Kitchen towels

According to research, kitchen towels are one of the most contagious places in the kitchen. The same goes for small towels in the bathroom. Since you use them more than once a day, they get dirty very quickly. That is why you need to wash them often, and preferably even daily - especially if you have a large family.


The surface of the keys contains as many bacteria as the button for calling the elevator. We never wipe the keys and always take them with dirty hands. They fall in the entrance or on the street, are stored in dirty pockets and bring an incredible amount of infectious bacteria into the house. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the keys, including from the car, with antiseptic wipes.

Tile in the bathroom

In order not to make a lot of effort to clean tiles that are too dirty, it is necessary to wash them after every shower. Dry walls also help keep mold from forming in the room.

Sponge for washing dishes

A dish-washing sponge is almost the dirtiest thing in the kitchen. We use it to clean cutting boards, sinks, sometimes even tables. After all this, it must be disinfected: rinse it thoroughly and put it wet in the microwave. Then turn on the oven for a couple of minutes at low power. Watch the process carefully: if steam begins to rise from the sponge, the disinfection must be completed. Never use this method for sponges that have metal parts.

Absolutely all the sinks in the house

You probably think that after washing your hands or dishes, your sink also gets clean. But you forget about the numerous bacteria that are on its walls.

Dishes soaked in water

Leftovers on the dishes left dirty for the night will only aggravate the cleaning process. You can use a dishwasher for daily washing (do not rinse the dishes before putting them in the machine), but rather wash the dirty dishes immediately after each meal.

Cutting board

After cooking, a wooden spatula and a wooden chopping board, in which fungi and microbes live, must be dipped in vinegar water for a few minutes (1: 1). Cutting boards made from other materials must also be disinfected periodically. Use a cleaning solution made from a teaspoon of baking soda and 0,5 liters of hot water. Treat the cutting board with the resulting solution and after 5-10 minutes rinse abundantly under running water /

Brushes and sponges for makeup

If you use a single makeup brush for a long time, it can be home to bacteria, which you then transplant onto your face. Therefore, after applying makeup, rinse it in warm soapy water.
