YOU MAY be forgetting to clean a part of your house that produces a lot of odor, according to a cleaning expert.
Housekeeper Courtney, who calls herself Splash of Spotless online, shared just how to tidy it up plus three other spaces you are likely missing.
First and foremost, Courtney showed exactly how to clean the area of the kitchen that holds the garbage bin – an often smelly location.
In this specific instance, the garbage can she decided to clean is stored in a pull-out cabinet.
She first removed the physical bin from the cabinet, removed larger pieces of debris with her hand from the bottom of the drawer, and then vacuumed any smaller pieces of garbage.
Next, Courtney wiped down the interior walls of the pull-out cabinet with a cloth and unnamed cleaning spray.

Courtney then revealed three other commonly forgotten spaces in the home that could use a clean every once in a while.
