It can be pretty telling when certain things in the house need to be cleaned. Take the floors, for instance. It's pretty obvious to see and feel when they get covered in dirt, debris, and hair. Therefore, it's pretty easy to know that the floors need to be cleaned. It may not be as easy to tell when other items in your house need cleaning.

Think about it...when's the last time you cleaned your washing machine? Or the cup that holds your toothbrush? Items like these often get overlooked when it comes time for chores. Or, they get ignored because they are such a large and annoying task.

Let's not forget about household appliances that have water lines. Things like coffee machines and ice makers that have lines that carry water need to be cleaned out to prevent mildew and mold growth. But, they get used so frequently that it's hard to find the time between uses to clean it.

Appliances aren't the only things in your house that need to be cleaned. Appliances are just the more obvious ones. Items like hairbrushes and keys need to be regularly cleaned, as well.
