{Daily Task #89} – Light Switch Clean

Task #89:

Light switches can often be forgotten when we clean our homes, so today, go around the entire house and concentrate on cleaning each light switch that you have.


daily task 89 light switch clean

My Tips and Advice:

Think of how many fingers have touched each light switch in your home in the past week/month – that’s an awful lot of oils/germs and general grubbiness to contend with.

It’s not only not good to look at a dirty light switch, but it can also be unhealthy as germs can pass from person to person as they use each switch – the light switch can be one of the dirtiest places in your home as a result.

It’s definitely worth giving each switch a good clean as part of your cleaning routine.

Use an anti bacterial wipe to get rid of germs and general grime – then buff with a microfibre cloth (you could also use polish if you like)

Go round the sides (the top is a perfect dust gathering area!), and then wipe and buff up the front. This is especially needed if you have metal switches, as these show every fingerprint and speck of dirt so much more clearly.


TIP – to clean the actual switch a cotton bud works perfectly as it can get into the smaller places more easily.
TIP – your door handles can be just as bad for passing germs from person to person – so if you have extra time today, add this to the chores while you are walking around.
