Some things need to be cleaned more than others but it can sometimes be hard to know how often. This infographic from HappyCleans looks at how often you need to clean a selection of items around the house and it will hopefully result in you having a much cleaner house.

We all make our bed and make it look nice every day but how often do you actually change your bed sheets? You should try to clean them on a weekly basis and look to use warm water instead of hot water as this can shrink fibers. Your mattress is another area that needs attention every so often and giving it a quick clean every two months or so is generally the best practice. You can sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on it to absorb odor and then vacuum it before spraying with disinfectant to kill bacteria.

Most of us vacuum the carpets semi regularly, but is this really enough? It’s also important to steam clean them every so often to really get deep down into the carpets. Even doing this twice a year will make a big difference to how your carpets look and it will also make the air quality in your home better. Check out the full infographic below.
