#happylife: Things you don’t think to clean, but probably should

If you’ve been doing some spring cleaning lately, you’ve probably tackled things like your closet, your kitchen, maybe a bathroom.

Those are the things that come to mind when we get ready to organize our lives. But it’s the things that don’t come to mind that might need the most attention.

When’s the last time you cleaned out your coffee maker? Surveys say they are often neglected and can even contain germs and even mold.

Next, the thing we all use everyday: your phone. It probably never leaves your side and it’s probably very dirty. Just make sure you don’t use too much water or cleaning solution when you wipe it off.

What about your TV remotes? We touch them all the time and likely never think to clean them. Same goes for the steering wheel in your car. You probably can’t see the dirt and grime build up, but we’re willing to bet it’s there!

Another thing we touch all the time, but don’t think to clean, are your home’s door knobs and stair rails. You’d probably be surprised what will come off of those.

Other things you probably don’t clean enough are your keyboards, your actual keys, your overhead fan blades and your trash cans.
