There’s nothing quite like coming home to a clean apartment at One 51 Place. Most of our residents will agree that they sleep better at night knowing that their floors are vacuumed and mopped, bathrooms are spotless, and there’s no dust settling on their furniture. However, while many people think to clean their countertops, floors, bathtubs, windows, and other commonly used areas, there are a number of sneaky spots that most people forget to clean.
If you want to give your apartment a good deep clean, don’t forget these commonly missed spots:
- The inside of trash cans – Trash cans hold your garbage all day, every day, so it’s no surprise that they are notorious for housing lots of gunk that can cause odors. Simply wipe down the inside of the can with a disinfectant wipe to keep it smelling fresh.
- Toothbrush holder – Toothbrush holders should be cleaned once a month. To do this, simply scrub it with a sponge or throw it in the top rack of the dishwasher if you have one that’s dishwasher safe.
- Ice maker bucket – These buckets often collect dust and crumbs, which you definitely don’t want in your ice. Every few months, dump out the bucket and clean it with soap and water. Be sure that it’s completely dry before you stick it back in the fridge.
- Garbage disposal – If you ever notice your garbage disposal starting to smell, run it with a little ice, citrus rinds, and baking soda to clean out any sludge and remove any unpleasant odors.
