Deep cleaning our homes can seem daunting.

There are so many areas to clean that we often don’t know where to start.

Well, a home cleaning guru named Kami, who passes @kami_larae on TikTok, said there are a few common household appliances that most people forget to dust off.

She said cleaning these items once a month will keep them in top condition.

AIR FILTERS

The first thing you should do every month is change your air filters.

“These can cause a lot of allergies, especially if you have pets,” Kami explained.

The accumulation of dust and pet hair is also not good for our lungs.

WASHER

Second, Kami said to tackle your washing machine.

To do this, all you have to do is grab a cup of vinegar or a cup of baking soda.

“But don’t use both at the same time, otherwise they will cancel each other out.”

Add the liquid or powder to an empty load of laundry and run the cycle on the hottest setting.

WASHING MACHINE FILTER

Still focusing on the washing machine, you also need to clean the filter inside.

“Make sure you use a towel and a bowl because the first time I did this I got water everywhere.”

Kami added that it’s also important to clean the inside of the machine, as mold and mildew can accumulate in hidden places.

DRYER VENT

Once you’ve handled the washing machine, you’ll want to move on to the dryer.

Kami used a bottle cleaning brush she found at Whole Foods to scrub the vent, as she revealed it worked well for this purpose.

“Don’t forget to clean your lidded trap!” she warned.

COFFEE MACHINE

Next, Kami cleaned up a product that many of us have probably never rinsed: the Keurig.

This one is very simple: all you have to do is buy the Keurig cleaning pods and run one.

DISHWASHER FILTER

Kami then went through the dishwasher, removing the filter and rinsing it with water.

“These can get pretty gross if you don’t rinse your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.”

WASTE DISPOSAL

At the sink, she used the Routine Clean CLR Waste Disposal Pods to clean the interior drain.

She said the pods work great for deodorizing elimination.

TO FLOW

Still working on the sink, she then took the Power Paste Natural Cleanser to scrub the surface.

“You have to try this thing, it’s amazing. I was shocked at how clean my sink was.

“I mean, literally, all this gray stuff was coming out of it and I thought it was clean.

“Once I rinsed it off, it looked so shiny and new,” she revealed.

DISHWASHER, SINK AND SHOWER HEAD

Back in the dishwasher, she added one to two cups of vinegar inside the unit and ran an empty load.

She took this vinegar and also poured two cups down the sink drain, then put some in a Ziploc bag and secured it around the shower head.

SHOWERS

His final piece of advice was to sanitize your shower.

“While the shower heads soak in vinegar, I disinfect the showers.”

She used a mop to scrub the floors and walls, as she said a mop is “much easier on the knees.”
