Places people forget to clean

Here is a list of all the places that you should be cleaning but may be missing in your home. These are not everyday cleaning tasks but the ones to add into your monthly cleaning calendar


The living room is the place where we relax, unwind, watch television, and snack which can lead to crumbs getting between the cushions and under furniture. Here are some places you may be missing in the living room.

TV Remote Controls– the best way to clean these is to dip a microfibre cloth in rubbing alcohol and wipe over the entire remote. You can also grab a toothpick to get into any small crevices.

Behind and under furniture- My pink cordless vacuum cleaner is so easy to manoeuvre around my furniture because it’s so lightweight and has such great suction and lays flat to get right under my sofas.

Cushion covers – Try and pop these in the wash at least once a month

Lampshades – use a lint roller to remove any dust and dust the light bulb using a recycled make up/paint brush.

Throws – Over the winter months when you are getting cosy watching TV try and pop these in the wash every other week.


The kitchen is the hub of the home. It’s where we seem to spend the most time in, gathering, talking, and eating. It is also a huge clutter zone.

Kitchen utensil drawers

Splash back

Inside cupboards

Under cupboards – you will be surprised at how sticky these can get

Oven racks – you can leave these to soak in warm soapy water with a splash of white vinegar over night

Extractor fan covers

Extractor fan hoods – if stainless steel after cleaning buff up with a tiny drop of baby oil

Around and under the fridge – use this amazing flat headed duster

Fridge shelves – most can be removed so just soak in warm soapy water.

Kitchen table and chair legs – We often do the tops but how often do we turn over our chairs and do the legs and the same for the table legs.

Kitchen Chairs – If fabric use the Dr Beckmann upholstery cleaner if leather use the Astonish leather cleaner

Microwave – to clean the inside off the microwave, fill a bowl with a ½ cup of vinegar and a ½ cup of water and place it into the microwave on high for 5 minutes you can also use an angry mama. Then just wipes away the loosened grease and grim.


The bedroom is often just used for sleeping and dressing so shouldn’t get too dirty but can get very cluttered. Take a minute to look in your wardrobes, go through your clothes and take out what you are no longer wearing. Check under the bed and add these tasks to your cleaning calendar.

Mattress – Often over looked but ensure you use a thick good quality mattress protector and check out my tips on mattress cleaning.

Pillows– Again ensure you are using good quality pillow protectors and to refresh them either pop in the tumble dryer for 10 mins on a high heat to kill germs and refresh, spot clean using hydogren perxiode or steam clean them, some can be cleaned in the washing machine but follow my guide.

Under the bed – Pull out if you can as dust really does build up under the bed, if it is too heavy use my cordless vacuum as it goes nice and flat.

Bedroom Drawers – Empty and clean out.



So, you are probably cleaning all the obvious spots in the bathroom such as the sinks, mirrors, toilet, and bath and shower. But, there may be some spots that you have completely forgotten about. The worst places in your bathroom are the flush button and light switch/cord.

Light pull cord – Can often be discoloured where hands touch you can brighten this up using white toothpaste.

Shower Curtains – Must of these can be washed in the washing machine, if they have any mould patches treat with white vinegar

Shower Door – If built up with soap scum and limescale treat using my magic shower spray. or half a lemon dipped in bicarbonate of soda.

Shower Drain – Treat weekly by simply adding down a big scoop of bicarb, if blocked use a drain weasel

Shower head– if you have build-up on your shower head the best way to clean it is to fill a plastic bag with white vinegar and place it over the shower head. Make sure the shower head is immersed and secure with a rubber band and let it soak for a few hours or overnight if it’s really bad. If a bag won’t fix use a tea towel drenched in white vinegar.

Bathroom bin

Under and around the Sink base

Behind the toilet – dust can really build up here and it is hard to reach so blast with a steamer.

Toilet brush – Remember that silicone ones are the most hygienic.

Medicine cabinet– the medicine cabinet can not only get cluttered with stuff but it can get really dusty and dirty. The best thing to do is to pull everything out and declutter. Throw out anything out that has expired and then wipe out the inside before replacing the items.

Good Morning 💗I have been on a decluttering mission over the past few days and I have been ruthless. Wardrobes have been jam packed full of clothes we no longer wear, endless amounts of make up and hair accessories.Decluttering is such a well needed process a few times a year. (Once a season for me) It will improve your headspace, make you feel much more positive and give your home more space and order. Be tough STOP the excuses and STOP holding onto something because you might wear or use it again.START by getting everything out of cupboards, wardrobes and bedside cabinets If you are short on time, just do one space whenever you have a spare 15 minutes.✅Get rid of clothes that don’t fit ✅Get rid of Stained/ damaged items ✅Reassess on trend purchases✅FILL A BAG, donate, sell or recycleMake time and go for it 😀#declutter #organise #wardrobeessentials #keypieces #letgo #brutal #recycle #donate #confidence #style #teenagelife #mumslife #queenofclean #fillabag #restore #order #motivation #mentalhealth #cleanhouse #happyhouse #autumnclean #autumncleaning ...

Happy clean sheets Sunday 💖Changing the bedding is not everyone’s favourite job. The washing along with the ironing and then popping on a lovely fresh set is time consuming and not easy for everyone especially if you suffer with health conditions. 🛌But the benefits of a fresh bedding are immense. That feeling of climbing into fresh sheets that smell gorgeous is a magical moment.How often do you change your bedding ???🛌Twice a week.🛌 One a week 🛌 Every fortnight 🛌 Once a monthBeds can become seas of human cells, bacteria and bodily fluids . Warm, moist environments are an ideal breeding grounds for dust mites and their faeces can trigger allergic reactions 🙈#cleansheetssunday #bedding #sheets #bed #bedroom #bedroominterior #bacteria #dirt #bodilyfluids #queenofclean #queenofcleaneffect #clean #cleaning #bedding #beddingsets #homesweethome #cosy #sleep #sleepwell ...
