We all know that some places in the house just don’t get cleaned as well as others. A kitchen table can easily be wiped down, whereas I’ve never even ventured under the oven. I’ve found that there are some places in the house that should be cleaned[i] , but that aren’t cleaned very regularly because it is just TOO hard. So here I have my list of places that are VERY hard to clean along with the solutions I’ve come up with (maybe you can help me come up with better ones).
Problem: Under Ruby’s chin. She has her cute chubby cheeks and her adorable double chin that are impossible to get a washcloth under.
Problem: There is a lip on the sink plug that is big enough to let gunk and nasty grime in, but not big enough to clean it out.
|Solution only (I wish I could think of a better one than this): Stick your pinkie finger in and fish it out.|
Problem: A vacuum cleaner dated 1972 with no attachments makes it very difficult to clean the corners of our room.
Solution A: use a rag to wipe up the visible mess.
Solution B: buy a new vacuum cleaner (haven’t actually tried this one yet)
Problem: We have a very fancy looking soap dispenser in the shower that somehow collects grime at the spout of it.
Solution A: pipecleaners.
Solution B: dishwasher gets some of it.
What other places do you find hard to clean? What have you done to fix the problem?
[i] I don’t think the “under the oven” necessarily NEEDS to be cleaned since no one goes under there anyway, right?
