We all have that internal checklist that reminds us that it’s probably time to dust the living room or wash the floors. Yet, there are so many household chores that are often forgot. Life gets busy and overwhelming, and the last thing anybody wants to do is more household tasks. However, hopefully this quick list can give you a good refresher and remind you to add these chores to your internal checklist so you can keep your house in tip-top shape!
Cleaning Behind Appliances
Some of the places that tend to get ignored are the areas behind the washer, dryer, and oven. They need to be moved away from the wall and the area where they sat swept clean of all dust. While we might not initially think about cleaning behind these large appliances, it needs to be done. This doesn’t have to be a regular chore, but just making sure the area behind your appliances gets some attention and a good sweep now and then will be a great step in the right direction.
Clean Your Appliances
After you pull out all of your appliances and give behind them a good sweep, make sure you clean them as well. We’re not talking about wiping the outside of them down, although that would also be a good thing to do. We’re talking about actually cleaning them. Big appliances such as your dishwasher and oven get used regularly. Throwing your oven on cleaning mode every once in a while or giving your dishwasher a deep clean will be greatly beneficial.
Keep Your Pantry Stocked up
You might not consider this a chore because it doesn’t have to do with cleaning, but it still needs to be done. Yes, you buy products and items when you run out of them, but wouldn’t it be so much easier to just restock up on everything all at once? Prioritizing your pantry is the way to go. This way you have everything you need when you need it.
While there are probably many more household chores that are often forgot, we hope this list gives you a solid starting point. All three of these don’t take much time at all and don’t need to be done regularly. All we’re saying is—just don’t forget that they should be done occasionally!
