Closet Essential Cleaning Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

Modern times are requiring people across the world to implement stricter cleaning measures, and a lot of homeowners in the U.S. have taken this call to heart. We are all interested in reducing the spread of infectious diseases, and aside from the recommended tips—consistent hand-washing, not touching your face, and staying away from people—we wonder what else we can do to stay protected. In a time where nationwide quarantines are forcing individuals to stay at home, many are choosing to deep clean the home spaces they use frequently so they can have some peace of mind.

Solid wood hangers, storage bins, and other closet essentials that you use all the time should also be cleaned thoroughly. In the following sections, we’re going to talk about some of the methods you can use to clean those closet essentials you use daily.

  1. Disinfecting Closet Hangers and Hanging Organizers

When one thinks about the areas in a home that require consistent cleaning, it’s likely they don’t immediately consider closet spaces. But think about how closets are filled with acrylic hangers and other hanging organizers; these are items you frequently grab to get articles of clothing, and you can leave germs on these items every time you touch them. This is why you should routinely wipe down your closet hangers with sanitary wipes or warm soapy water—doing this can go a long way in preventing the spread of germs. If there are clear storage bins on the closet’s floor, you must make sure to clean these as well, for germs from other items may fall and rest on these bins.

  1. Washing Down Bins With Warm Soapy Water

Many homeowners use storage bins at home because these are affordable and practical objects. It’s also true, however, that because these bins are used frequently, they’re easy magnets for germs and other particles that can make you sick. More importantly, your children may use these clear storage bins frequently without your supervision, and kids are known for spreading germs unknowingly and without regard for the consequences. Make it a habit to clean your storage bins on a weekly basis, if not more often, to ensure they're always free of harmful bacteria and particles. Keeping the items you use all the time clean and free of germs can prevent your whole house from getting sick.

  1. Washing Items Outside to Ensure They’re Cleaned Thoroughly

To really make sure your bins, acrylic hangers, and other closet essentials are free of germs, you should clean them outside, where you can wash them with a hose and without worry that you’re getting the surrounding areas wet and soapy. The fresh air at a time like this will also do you a world of good!
