By: Pure Wow

It doesn't matter if you rent or own your apartment--going a year without cleaning under the fridge is unacceptable. So grab some rubber gloves and load up on the disinfectant. We’re going in for the deep clean.

Here are 13 gross things in your apartment you need to clean now.


You’ve never cleaned yours, have you? (We’re not judging, we promise.) But think about it: so many hands, so many germs. Those handles are hotbeds. Disinfect every doorknob in your apartment with vinegar or a bleach solution once a week.


Dirt and dust on the filter makes your air conditioner up to 15 percent less efficient--rinse it in the sink with a small amount of dishwashing liquid and scrub it with a sponge. Bam, good as new.


We don’t even want to think about how gross this thing is, but that’s exactly why you should start wiping it down with an antibacterial cleaner once a month. (Wear rubber gloves and you’ll be fine.)
