Most of us don’t look forward to spending a good part of our day cleaning the house but it’s one of those things that have to be done unless you want to end up living somewhere that looks like the local landfill.

We also don’t adhere to the same standards where “clean” is concerned, of course, and there are definitely people on both ends of the spectrum.

There are those that cannot rest unless everything is squeaky clean and is in its proper place. Others are content to keep things a little more loosely organised and are able to tolerate a certain level of clutter in their living space.

Unfortunately for all of us, there are some everyday items around our homes that we probably don’t pay enough attention to when it comes to cleaning, and neglecting these things can sometimes lead to health problems that could be easily avoided.
