The Most Neglected Areas During Cleaning – Part 2

As if it’s not difficult enough to find time to clean the areas that scream “Cleaning!”, but you know that at some point you’ll have to tend to the “quieter” areas that silently collect dust and dirt. This post is a continuation of the list of most ignored places during house cleaning .


Considering the fact that headboards are very close to your face, cleaning them regularly can help reduce allergies and respiratory problems. At the very least, it would make the air you breathe while sleeping much nicer.

Iron or brass headboards just need a simple wipe down with a cloth. An upholstered headboard requires vacuuming with the brush attachment. If your headboard is leather, you can wipe it either with a dry cloth (if it’s only dusty) or with a damp one (if there are stains or fingerprints). It’s not advisable to use any cleaning agents on leather because they might damage it.

Tops of door frames

These should actually be at the top of the list, because the vast majority of people never remember to go over this bit with a cloth. It’s for this reason that scientists who researched the connection between dust and bacteria decided to use this spot for dust sampling. They concluded that because of the small amount of attention that this area receives, it’s the most representative of the dust-locked bacteria in a household.


Lampshades are like a magnet for dust. If your lampshades are light-colored, dust can cause stains and discolorations. There is a variety of ways in which you can clean lampshades, depending on their size and material. You can vacuum them with the upholstery-brush attachment or wipe them with a microfiber cloth. Dust and debris particles can be collected with lint rollers, or you can give the lampshades a light dip in the bathtub to remove dust buildup.


Depending on your lifestyle and home, you’ll see mud, food, dirt and dust on baseboards. If not cleaned regularly, baseboards could become discolored. Prevention is easy – wipe them with a clean cloth or use a well-stirred mixture of warm water and detergent to remove the stains.
