You probably do the basic stuff when you clean your home, like wiping down counters and washing the sheets. But some things undoubtedly get forgotten. This visual guide can help you establish a regular cleaning schedule for the stuff that tends to fall by the wayside - from pet bowls to door knobs.

The guide, from housewares provider Moshells, shows you the parts of a home that often go neglected, and how often you should actually give them some attention. For example, indoor garbage cans need to be rinsed every couple of months, pet bowls are best washed daily and window screens should be tidied up once a year. Even children's toys could use a wipe down or wash once a month.

The guide also tells you the best way to go about caring for each area. You can check out the full graphic below.

    Who doesn't clean their BBQ or grill after they have used it?

    Also, check your mattress before flipping, some are designed to be one way up, so just rotate them.

    Clean curtains every 2 weeks, but vacuum once a month?

      I got the impression it was for cleaning the vacuum - the bags, the inside, the filters etc, not actually vacuuming the house.

        Ah, it helps if I read the text next to it.
        That makes more sense.
