Household Items you should Clean… But NEVER Do!
Sure, you can get away with washing your walls only occasionally… But no matter what, walls WILL get dirty over time, especially in the kitchen, where they are exposed to steam, splatter, sprays and all manner of other contaminants. In the bathroom, too, the presence of steam can help dirt and dust stick to the walls, so give them a good scrub-down every now and then!

Did you know you should clean your coffee maker about once a month? This helps clear limestone buildup and prevents mold from growing. To clean the insides of your coffee machine, run a half-cycle with one part water, two parts vinegar, then run a full cycle with just water.
