On a scale of 1 to 10, how clean is your home? No matter how often you scrub, sweep and dust every corner of it, you are bound to miss one or two spots. No need to worry, this isn't your fault—these things are so subtle and forgettable, you might not even realize they need cleaning, too. To help you get every cranny of your house looking peach perfect, here is a list of things and places to tidy up immediately:

Disinfect the light switches.

Door knobs and light switches are two of the most germ-ridden things around the home—our hands are always in contact with them therefore spreading the bacteria. Use antibacterial wipes or cotton pads soaked in alcohol to rid them of grime every now and then.

Unclog the drains.

From food residue to product build up and falling hair, there's nothing that doesn't collect over our drains. Maintain function by cleaning these areas at least once a month—take 1/2 cup of baking soda and sprinkle it down each drain followed by 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Let this combo sit for around 30 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.

Wash your trash bins.

That's right—garbage cans also need deep cleaning! At least twice a month, get them out in your backyard and hose them down with water combined with an all-purpose cleaner. For dirt build-up or dried food particles, you can use a nylon-bristle brush to scrub it off.  

Mop up the space behind your toilet.

Cleaning the toilet is something everyone does, but do you ever touch the odd gap behind it? Use a narrow broom to reach into the back of the bowl. If you want a more intense cleanse, you can try using a damp mop instead.

Wipe the overhead of your kitchen cabinets.

Don't let a troop of dust bunnies multiply on your expensive cabinets. Once a week, take a damp sponge or cloth and wipe the tops of your kitchen cabinets. When doing this, avoid standing on your kitchen counters to prevent accidents—use a sturdy stepladder or a stool instead.
