Although cleaning the entire house is important for living in a healthy and sanitized environment, there are some things that need to be cleaned more often than others .

But what are these surfaces?

In this regard, today we will see together what to clean at home to always have a healthy and sanitized environment!


Let’s start with cleaning the bathroom fixtures, which we use daily for intimate and personal hygiene .

For this reason, it is important to proceed with cleaning these components daily in order to sanitize and disinfect them.

To do this, we suggest using  lemon,  the citrus fruit capable of not only cleaning the bathroom fixtures, but also bringing a good scent to the entire bathroom.

All you have to do, therefore, is pour the  juice of two lemons into a spray bottle, then fill the remaining part of the bottle with  hot water  and shake it well to mix everything together.

At this point, spray the mixture  thus obtained on all the bathroom fixtures, rub with a non-abrasive sponge and then wipe with a microfibre cloth to rinse. Alternatively, you can also use denatured alcohol.


A separate discussion must be made on the toilet, which is the surface that certainly needs to be sanitized more than any other to avoid the spread of germs and bacteria in the home.

To clean it, we recommend  DIY toilet gel. To make it, you will need to have:

  • 250ml of water
  • 20 g of corn starch
  • 25 g of citric acid 
  • 10 g of ecological dish detergent

Then pour 200 ml of water into a saucepan , add the citric acid and heat the mixture over low heat. At the same time, mix the corn starch with about  50 ml of water  and the ecological dishwashing liquid.

Finally, add the corn starch and dish detergent mixture to the saucepan containing water and citric acid, bring everything to the boil and you will notice that a mixture with the consistency of a thick gel will form  .

Then, turn off the heat, let it cool and add, if you prefer,  a few drops of tea tree , which boasts  disinfectant and antibacterial properties .

To use, pour this gel into  a container with a spout  or even a simple plastic bottle and pour it into the toilet daily, leaving it to act for a while  before scrubbing and flushing.

Surfaces where mold accumulates

Other surfaces that need to always be cleaned to always have a sanitized and healthy environment are those that tend to accumulate mold.

Usually, these are those continually subject to water or excessive humidity , such as the shower cubicle. To clean them, I suggest you use hydrogen peroxide , which is able to eliminate mold and bacteria  effectively.

Then pour the hydrogen peroxide onto the cotton pads, then apply them directly to the mold stains and leave to act for about an hour.

At this point, scrub with a sponge and rinse thoroughly. Hydrogen peroxide will not only eliminate mold but will also help prevent it from returning .

Furthermore, I recommend  airing the bathroom several times a day , especially after a hot shower.

I’ll show you how to do it in detail with this video:


Door handles

We rarely dedicate ourselves to cleaning door handles , yet they are continually handled by all of us and become a receptacle for germs and bacteria.

To clean them, you can simply use Marseille soap, which is an ingredient with  very delicate cleaning properties.

Then pour two tablespoons of liquid Marseille soap  into a basin containing approximately 500 ml of water, then dip a soft cloth in the solution and  pass it over the handle to be cleaned.

Finally, dry thoroughly.


During the night, our sheets collect dead skin cells , hair, saliva and so on. In short, they are not exactly the most hygienic thing we have at home.

For this reason, it is first of all important to change it at least once a week in winter and twice in summer. Therefore, to wash sheets, pajamas and pillowcases, you can use Marseille soap , vinegar or citric acid.

Furthermore, I suggest adding 10 drops  of Tea Tree essential oil , which is a powerful anti-parasitic and cleaning agent.


Finally, remember to clean and wash the curtains, which accumulate dust, bad smells and act as a filter against smog coming from outside.

We therefore suggest that you wash them at every change of season so as to always have them clean. To wash them, use Marseille soap and use the most suitable type of wash based on the type of tent.

If, in fact, you have cotton curtains , you can wash them in the washing machine, setting  a delicate program at 30° , with a spin at 600.

However, in the case of curtains made of nylon  or other synthetic fibres, it would be a good idea to proceed  with a delicate wash , preferably by hand, by soaking it in a tub containing  warm water and Marseille soap.
