Today we’re talking about 3 of the dirtiest spots in your home; you know those spots that are coated in grime that you might not have noticed - those harbor the most germs! ⁣ ⁣ 𝐁𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦 𝐦𝐚𝐭 - Your bathroom mat can be laundered in the washing machine. Just use regular laundry detergent, but add a cup of white vinegar to the load, for its sanitizing and general de-stinkifying properties⁣ ⁣ 𝐊𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐞 - Many studies show that the number 1 germiest spot in the home is the dish sponge. This is ironic since we use it to clean up. But there’s a quick fix for this too. At the end of every day, when you’ve finished cleaning up, rinse the sponge well to get out all traces of soap. Place sponge in a bowl of water and place bowl in microwave for 3 minutes. Let it sit for a few minutes before removing it⁣ ⁣ 𝐓𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐛𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐡 𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐫 - Give these a regular cleaning. If they are removable, give them a good scrub with hot, soapy water, then run them through the dishwasher. If not, spray them down well with an all-purpose cleaner and let sit for a few minutes. Wipe clean with a clean cloth. If there is gunk that needs extra abrasion to remove, sprinkle on some baking soda and scrub with a cleaning toothbrush. Rinse well⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #tidytribe #stephtidytribe #cleaning #cleaningmotivation #cleaninghacks #organization #organized #organizedhome #organizing #cleaningblogger #cleaninghacks #cleaningtips #cleaningtips #cleaningproducts #lagosnigeria #lagos #lagosbloggers #nigerianblogger #cleaningaccount #storagesolutions #storagesolutions #tidyhome #lagosorganizer #professionalorganizerlagos #hinching

3. Tidy Tribe

You will probably never come across an Instagram account that shares as many helpful cleaning tips as Tidy Tribe. Owned by Steph Ogundoyin, an award-winning cleaning professional, Tidy Tribe is as amazing as it gets. On this page, you will find regular tips, ideas and inspiration on not only cleaning but also on organizing your home and office. These tips are especially helpful at this time. You should totally check this one out. Your life will change after this, I promise.

4. Kehinde Smith

She calls herself your melanin godmother and it is obvious why. The tall, dark beauty, travel and lifestyle entrepreneur has one of the most creative pages I have seen on Instagram. Plus, I love how she makes black look so beautiful, attractive and colourful. Her page gets even more interesting when she travels to the most exotic places or shares some of her beauty secrets with her followers. There is enough to feed your eyes on.

5. Diary of a Naija Girl (DANG)

Each time I visit the DANG page, I see something worth reading, sharing, or commenting on. Many confuse her with Naija Single Girl, but they are not one and the same. While they both use a pseudonym that might seem alike and describe events in the same creative manner, DANG uses her name, Ife, freely and seems to explore broader topics on her page.
