Sanitise your gadgets
Bad news: Your toilet isn’t the germiest thing in your house – your smartphone is. In fact, a 2013 study found that tablets have up to 600 units per swab of staphylococcus (commonly known as staph) and phones have up to 140 units, on average. The typical toilet seat, by comparison, has less than 20 units. All the more reason to spend a minute scrubbing your gadgets with an alcohol wipe. And if you have a few more seconds, wipe down other electronics like your TV remote and computer mouse, too.
Unsubscribe to junk emails
Spring cleaning calls for tidying up every aspect of your life, including your electronic one. Between meetings at work, quickly unsubscribe to any newsletters or junk mail that you have ignored for months. You will be way more productive once your inbox isn’t cluttered with spam.
Wash your cutlery tray
You probably wash your forks and spoons every day. As for the tray that holds them? Not so much. That little bin can get grimy, so take out the cutlery and give it a scrub. If you’re really short on time, simply toss it in the dishwasher and run a hot, soapy cycle.
