We know what you’re thinking: “Another thing to add to my to-do list?!” But trust us when we say there’s a method behind our madness. Checking off these seven easy chores each day will make a huge difference in your home in the long run by cutting down on future scrubbing and scouring — not to mention harmful germs and bacteria. Consider these the absolute essentials that need to get done daily for that fresh and clean feeling.

Hand Towels

They might not look dirty, but dish towels were deemed the most contaminated spot in the kitchen in a USDA-funded study. And the same goes for the small towels in your bathroom.

Shower Walls

The easiest way to rid your shower tiles of grout is regular upkeep, which is why it is often recommended to run a squeegee over tile after every use. By drying the walls, you’ll prevent mildew stains and cut down on cleaning time later on.

Kitchen Counters

When you think about the stuff you put on your countertops (car keys, mail, your purse) it’s impossible to ignore how dirty they are — and don’t get us started on leaving out crumbs for critters (eek!). So you should wipe down and disinfect every day. Just make sure you don’t use the same toilette everywhere.

Coffee Makers

If you’re like us, you probably brew a fresh pot every day. And since your coffee maker is a hotbed for bacteria and mold, you do need to clean it daily.It’s best to wash the removable parts of your coffee maker after every use to remove coffee, grinds, and oil. You can hand wash at the sink with warm and soapy water, but usually the pieces are dishwasher-safe. And don’t forget to wipe down the outside and the warming plate where spills can burn on.

Kitchen Sinks

You might think that after washing your hands or the dishes, your sink’s basin would be as clean as can be. Au contraire, you actually leave behind grime and bacteria that sticks to the basin’s walls. If you’re serious about being clean, you can use an eraser-type sponge (like Mr. Clean Magic Eraser) to remove marks, then sanitize by plugging the drain, filling the basin with warm water, and swishing a tablespoon of bleach around. Let it sit for five minutes, then rinse and air dry.

Dirty Dishes

Leftover sauce and crumbs will just attract bugs and make dishwashing way more difficult than necessary the next day. Instead, hand wash serving plates and utensils or tuck them away in the dishwasher (without rinsing!) before calling it quits.

Crumb-Covered Floors

If you cooked dinner, face it: You probably dropped food on the floor in the process. But thankfully all it takes is a quick Swiffer or sweep up after you finish the dishes to pick up those remnants — and ensure unwanted guests (*cough* bugs *cough*) don’t get to ’em first.
