Every home has them: places that are so difficult or awkward to reach that you avoid cleaning them. Then, when you’re forced to face them, the job is much tougher. Luckily, we have the solutions for cleaning behind the toilet, on top of the cabinets, around the bathroom faucets and more. Our really simple cleaning tips will eliminate stress and keep your home clean – without hours of effort or frustration.
Cleaning the dusty slats of Venetian blinds can be fiddly, and the top slats can be hard to reach. Use a Swiffer 360 Dusters Extender Cleaner to clean ever slat – it extends up to 3 feet and traps and locks dust.
The base of your shower and the tracks of the shower door need an extra bit of elbow grease to remove all the soap scum. Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Foaming Bath Scrubber to deal with the grime quickly and efficiently.
Behind the Toilet
This task becomes more unpleasant the longer you leave it, so scrub behind the toilet every time you clean the rest of the bathroom. Rather than kneeling down, spray Mr. Clean Multi-Surfaces Spray behind the toilet, and then use a sponge mop to scrub the area and wipe away dirt, dust and excess cleaner.
It’s not only tricky but also tedious to wipe in between your air vents. Solve the problem by using a Swiffer 360 Duster in between those tight spaces.
You don’t need to be a contortionist to clean your ceiling fan! Stand on a stepladder and use an old pillowcase to grab each fan blade, removing the dust as you pull it off. You can also use a Swiffer 360 Dusters Extender Cleaner.
Chandeliers and Lampshades
Make sure your living room is clean and bright all year long by keeping the dust and cobwebs in lighting fixtures at bay. A Swiffer 360 Dusters Extender Cleaner will help you dust ceilings, crown moldings and chandeliers without the need for a stepladder. It also works for lampshades and shutters.
Behind the Fridge
Built-up dust behind your fridge can reduce its efficiency. Place a large piece of cardboard in front of the fridge to protect the flooring, and then carefully move the fridge out of its usual position. Vacuum the fridge’s coils with the brush extension, and then wipe them down with a damp Bounty paper towel before moving your fridge back into place.
Just because you can’t see your cabinet tops doesn’t mean the dust and grime aren’t there. Stand on a step stool and clean them with a mixture of Mr. Clean Liquid Muscle and hot water (follow dosing instructions on the container) to penetrate dirt and lift it away. Then dry with a paper towel.
Preventing the buildup of soap scum in the nooks and crannies around your faucets is easy with the help of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Extra Durable. After scrubbing, rinse with clean water and dry with a paper towel.
