You probably clean your floors when they’re dirty, the stove when it’s messy, and wipe the walls as needed. But what about the spots that need to be cleaned every day? Yes, it’s true, there are a few key places you want to clean every single day. And we bet you’ll be surprised by a few of them. Let’s take a look.

Kitchen Sink

Might seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised. Even though your dishes end up clean in the sink, that doesn’t mean the sink ends up clean, too. Grime and bacteria can stick onto the sink after a good dish-cleaning, so it’s crucial to follow up with a sponge and a spray of sanitizer. You don’t want to wash your next batch of dishes in a dirty sink!

Dish Towels

No, we’re not saying you need to do a load of towels in the washer every single day. What we are saying, though, is that you should have clean towels on hand. You don’t even want to know how dirty those things get, even when you think they’re clean. Go ahead and toss them in the hamper after each use and save yourself the chance to spread germs throughout the kitchen.


Between your food, raw meat, purse, mail, and all of the other hands that touch it, your countertops face a lot of germs every day. It only takes a second to give them some attention with sanitizer. You’ll probably catch crumbs and stains, too.

Dirty Dishes

This is a must. Instead of leaving plates with food on them out, go ahead and give them a rinse and place them in the dishwasher. It’s only one extra step, and can protect your health and your plates at the same time.

Try adding these spots to your daily clean and we know you’ll be taking the best care of yourself and your family. Germs can pop up anywhere, so these tips will allow you to get ahead of them in just a few simple steps that take no time at all.
