Sometimes, cleaning individual rooms once a week is enough. In other cases, you will need to clean more frequently. Make sure you do whatever you can to keep your home clean. Go beyond clearing up clutter and make sure you sanitize and disinfect commonly touched surfaces, like doorknobs. Let’s find out more!
Find the Right Disinfectant
Doorknobs are commonly-used surfaces, and whether they are knobs or levers, they need to be kept disinfected as often as possible. It’s quite simple to clean doorknobs the right way! All you need is some disinfectant spray and a clean towel. You can make DIY disinfectant so that you can avoid undue exposure to unsafe or unpleasant chemicals. Vinegar and hydrogen peroxide make a huge difference when it comes to cleaning your doorknobs, so don’t overlook their merits.
Spray bottles are also going to be your best friend, so invest in getting a few of them, enough to make sure you can clean every single doorknob inside your home. There are also commercially-available countertop cleaners that you can, surprisingly, also use to clean the doorknobs around your home.
Use the Spray
The next step is to use the spray. Keep a clean towel on hand before you begin spraying. Get every part of the doorknob from the top to the bottom, and don’t forget about the keyholes on the entry doors. Use the towel to wipe the doorknobs dry once you are done. Spend the most time disinfecting doors that lead into your kitchen, your bathroom, and the front door, too.
Here’s a bonus tip from us to you: don’t forget to disinfect the light switches too. Like doorknobs, they are another commonly-touched surface that is usually overlooked when it’s time to do some heavy-duty house cleaning. Use the same techniques to disinfect the light switches – spray and wipe. The reason for this is they are so often not attended to – anything you touch needs to be disinfected, especially in these uncertain times when you want to do everything you can to keep yourself and your family safe.
