The ceiling fan is often hard to clean because it’s too high but this doesn't give you an excuse to not clean it. Remove dust accumulation on the blades by using a wool ceiling fan feather duster. Use a safe and sturdy ladder to be able to reach the innermost areas of the fan.
Behind your sofa
When cleaning your living room, we might forget to clean the space behind and under the sofa. Ask help to lift and move your piece so you can thoroughly sweep and mop the floors.
Under your refrigerator
Try to move your fridge so you can clean the area beneath it. It will be easier to clean this part of the house if your refrigerator is elevated. You can do this during your weekend cleaning so you can ask for help when moving the fridge.

Don’t forget to clean out the dust inside your lampshade! Use a feather duster to help clear out dirt from your bedside lamp. You can also use a lint-roller to keep the fabric of your shade in tip-top shape.
Door knobs need regular disinfection since everyone going in and out of the house touch it. Mix a cup of alcohol and a cup of water to create a homemade disinfectant. Put your solution in a spray bottle then use it to clean your knobs.
Remote or House Phone
Remote controls and the phone are two of the most-used items at home. Clean it using rubbing alcohol. Dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol then wipe your remote and phone carefully.
