Hammer and Mop shares 6 everyday things you're probably forgetting to clean. Add these simple yet important points to your home cleaning regime.

Winter is undeniably one of the favorite seasons, that make you go all cozy and comfy, especially in Bangalore and Delhi. While none of us want extra tasks to add to the cleaning to-do list in this season, there are a few jobs we need to do every now and again to keep our home in tip top, germ-free condition. Here are 7 things you might just be forgetting to clean around your home.

Between and under the sofa cushions

Who knows what treasure awaits you there. Make an effort to move and air out the cushions every once in a while, and you never know what treasures you might find down there. Whether it’s deep home cleaning or just tidying up, there are a few ways to go the extra mile and keep your home sparkling.

Behind Wall Art and Television

When was the last time you even looked back there? Electronics and wall art are quick to collect dust, so clean behind as well as the front of them to add a shine to your home. This is also a good time to reorganize all those loose cords.


Blinds harbor more germs than you’d like to know about, so wipe them down thoroughly with a cloth about once a fortnight. Just because you close the blinds at night, doesn’t mean the dust is gone. Use a window cleaner with a cloth, wipe your blinds every other weekend.

Remote Control

The remote control is worryingly one of the dirtiest things in your house so be sure to disinfect it or give it a wipe down with a wet wipe. It’s a good idea to do the same with your phone, headphone and any other little gadgets around the house that you touch regularly too. The most convenient way to clean it is using a cotton earbud.

House Plants

You water them, you keep them out of bright sunlight, but did you know you also need to give your plants a little clean every so often? Just wipe down the leaves and stem when you’re doing your dusting rounds around your house.


Before you get down to the deep cleaning methods, it is necessary to do a regular clean up of your tile. Cleaning grout is one of those tasks that’s so unbearable it’s almost worth it to just let it go. Spray vinegar and ammonia solution over the grout so it is dampened. Allow the mixture to set for 3-5 minutes to work into the grout, and then scrub it off.

Add these simple yet important points to your home cleaning regime and make your home  sparkling clean. Good luck with home cleaning!
