How to clean door handles

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Door handles can get dirty and harbour germs. I share with you how to clean door handles and finding a solution so you don’t forget to clean them.

Like light switches, door handles are touched so often and as you can imagine dirt and germs will be left behind ready for the next person that touches it. Cleaning door handles can be a forgotten task, not making it to your regular cleaning routine. A good idea is to swiftly walk through the house next time you are stuck on the phone and give them all a wipe over. It won’t take you very long at all.

I am asked regularly how often this task should be done. I don’t include it in my cleaning routine, I usually do it when waiting for something to finish cooking in the kitchen or when on the phone. Or you could add it to the kids chore list as this is a very easy task for them to do!

Kat’s tip: Set yourself up with a cleaning kit and use these cleaning checklists to help you remember regular cleaning tasks and create a routine to suit you.
