We all know the basics of keeping a clean, healthy home on a day-to-day basis. A quick sweep here, a little wipe there, and ta-da!: daily cleaning checklist complete. But even Apartment Therapy's editors can forget — or choose to forget — certain universal problem spots.
Our editors fessed up to what places in their homes they tend to overlook, and we settled on seven spots that just don't get the love. Some of these stay hidden in plain sight while others are areas people just don't want to deal with. Take a look at our dirty little secrets below. If one's a problem area for you too, give us the thumbs up; if you're on top of it, give us a tsk-tsk and thumbs down.
