Cleaning High Touch Areas

Most people forget to clean the places they touch most often when doing a big seasonal clean, but targeting these “high touch” areas will go a long way toward lowering the bacteria count in your home and also help to keep everyone healthy, especially during cold + flu season.

TIME: 30 to 90 minutes



This is an easy Spring Cleaning activity, but don’t get bored and cheat. You have to be thorough! I suggest you arm yourself with the All-Purpose cleaner and a cloth and walk out of your front door.

Start with your doorknob and doorbell and keep going, spraying and wiping EVERYTHING you touch on the daily from the moment you get home until you turn off the light to go to sleep.

These include:

    • Front Doorknob and buzzer
    • Interior doorknobs
    • Doorjambs
    • Light switches
    • Alarm keypad
    • Lamp knobs and pulls
    • Drawer pulls and cabinet knobs in the kitchen + bathroom
    • Stair Rails/Banisters
    • Fridge handle
    • Microwave + oven handles
    • Telephone receiver and dial pad
    • Remote controls and game controllers
    • Faucets and tap handles
    • Toilet flush handle
    • Medicine cabinet handles
    • Digital devices and keyboard (TOP TIP: Swap over to glass cleaner to do the screens). Spay the cloth, obviously, not the device.

Done! You deserve a treat. I suggest a new organic lip balm.
