Here are some secret places where dirt and germs accumulate.

Kitchen - The Sponge 

Even though we take time to clean the sink and worktop, there is something that often escapes our routine cleaning... the kitchen sponge. 

How to take care of it?

Opt for sponges that are good quality, dependable, and wash with hot water. The hot water helps kill some germs and makes your cleaning more effective. Flap the sponge well when you're done using it every day to avoid humidity in which the bacteria reproduce.

Living room– Remote Control

One never thinks of cleaning it, yet everyone fiddles with it, makes it fall to the ground; it passes in the hands full of crumbs of chips, under the soles of the slippers; not to mention the times when we sit on it by mistake or those where the dog drool over it.

How to clean it?

Spray a little liquid soap on a cotton swab and clean carefully between the keys.

Bathroom - The toilet seat

The toilet seat sometimes does not get all the cleaning it deserves.

How to clean them?

Washing your toilet set once a week won't suffice. You must do it every day or at least three times a week. The lid is flipped before flushing to prevent the movement of water from causing the bacteria to fly.

Doorknob

Doorknobs can be one of the dirtiest places in the house especially that of washrooms and the ones facing outdoors.

How to clean one?

80% of infectious diseases spread by hands. Think about putting a disinfectant bottle near the door at the entrance and outside your washroom to ensure that the hands that hold the doorknobs are clean and do not transfer any germs.

Bath Mat 

Sometimes you wash the towels and bath and remember to clean the shower. Most times, the bath mat goes scot-free in the middle of household chores. However, it must be washed and changed at least as much as towels or more: because it stays on the ground, wet, and is used by several people. 

How to wash it?

You need to, first of all, stop taking shoes into the bathrooms and also ensure that you clean the bath mat often enough. You should also ensure that your floor mat stays dry as much as possible.

Pay attention to these areas to keep your home clean. Pay extra attention to these areas when cleaning your home for inspection or an open house.

Everyone defines the term "quality of life" differently, but if you asked 100 people, you'd probably hear a lot of similar answers.

According to a Gallup study entitled "The State of American Well-Being," the  basis for a good quality of life includes having a sense of purpose, feeling good about what you do every day, having supportive relationships, being motivated to achieve your goals, being able to effectively manage your finances, having the energy and health to pursue your interests, and sharing a sense of community pride. Feeling safe and liking where you live were also key ingredients in the formula for a high quality of life .

The Gallup/Sharecare report focuses on several aspects of community life, such as the role local governments play in offering amenities and resources to citizens. The study concluded that "communities that invest in active living, including bike paths, parks, walkability and public transit, have residents with better health and well-being outcomes."

While factors such as the quality of school districts and low crime rates are often foremost in the minds of house hunters, there's also a lot to be said for communities that offer public recreational facilities, educational programs, cultural events, and services that promote health, safety, and a clean environment.

Advantages that can help make one community more desirable and family friendly than another can range from free outdoor concerts and public tennis courts to the availability of farmers' markets and clean, updated playgrounds. Other features which can positively impact the quality of life in a community include well-maintained roads and bridges, the availability of dog parks, community parades, and programs to encourage the proper disposal of drugs, electronics, household chemicals, and recyclable products.

At the neighborhood level, quality of life is often measured by factors like noise, the condition of nearby properties, the overall safety and security of the area, and the amount of street traffic. Clean air, mature trees, and friendly neighbors can also contribute to a wholesome living environment that can be enjoyed for generations.

While there are many advantages to designing your own home or buying new construction, one might need to make short-term sacrifices when it comes to things like noise, neighborhood aesthetics, and other temporary inconveniences. Your real estate agent or home builder can probably fill you in on things like construction timetables and project completion dates.

If you're in the market for a new home, it's always a good idea to clarify in your own mind what you and your family needs to feel comfortable, happy, and secure. Creating a priority list of needs, desires, and preferences not only helps you stay focused in your real estate search, but also increases the probability that you'll be satisfied with your new home on a long-term basis.
