So how many do you forget to scrub?

In a clip shared with Tick ​​tockFirst, she points out that remote controls are often overlooked.

“These contain a lot of bacteria,” she warns.

So maybe think about that before you curl up on the sofa and watch some classic Saturday night TV tonight.

And if your hallway or bedroom is lined with photos or artwork, listen carefully.

The cleaning guru points out that many homeowners forget to clean the top of their framed artwork.


“A lot of dust here!” she says.

Finally, the cleaning pro warns that while the toilet is out of sight, you should also remember to clean the back of the toilet.

The post has since gone viral, garnering a whopping 162,000 views and multiple comments from social media users.

“Not me, I’m a professional cleaner so I’m not missing anything,” one quipped.

A second asked: “Oh my god is there an easy way to clean the bottom of the toilet? I feel like it’s the hardest part to clean because of all the dust lol.”

A third joked, “Don’t give my mum any ideas.”

Meanwhile, a fourth added: “Door tops and woodwork too.”

And it seems there’s one common thing that people miss too much.

“I do everything except the remote but will do it now,” one person wrote.

Another chimed in: “I did 2 of the 3…I forgot the remote!”

Another added: “I’ll give you the remotes and frames…but the toilet…OHHHH NO…every Saturday!!!!”
