Moreover, these drives don’t have to be professional all the time, and you can take a few simple precautions (experts advice is best recommended) or by opting for simple techniques. Here are some of the ways for self-cleaning during winters.


  • Clean Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Clean your window next (you can use fabric softener for a streak-free shine). To avoid water stains, dry everything with a kitchen cloth.


  • Don’t forget to sanitize your toothbrush holder


Most individuals change their toothbrushes every 3 months or after an infection, but do you wash the brush holder on a regular basis? To assist avoid the transmission of germs, clean your toothbrush holder throughout the winter. Toss your holder in the dishwasher and you're done.


  • Clean oven with the help of baking soda


Your oven is undoubtedly in desperate need of a good clean after a season of Christmas pies and winter casseroles. Use a baking soda and water paste instead of pricey and harmful oven cleansers. Allow it to sit for an hour before scrubbing away the built-up residue using a sponge. If necessary, rinse with a moist sponge.


  • Beat the dust off the carpet


Carpets may harbour dust, grime, germs, and pet hair if not cleaned on a regular basis: 'To truly appreciate the warm and soft feeling beneath your feet in the winter, make absolutely sure your carpets are freshly cleaned. Larger carpets or rugs should be shaken outdoors twice to four times a year over a fence. Have you ever fantasised about being a tennis player? To beat the rug or carpet, use a tennis racket!'


  • Take professional help


Despite monthly or bi-monthly home cleaning, some of the spaces may not get clean properly or may have habitat for germs to grow. Thus it is suggested to go for professional cleaning for eradicating the germs completely.
