52 Things You Probably Haven't Cleaned In Way Too Long (That You Really Should)

Over 200 Ranker voters have come together to rank this list of 52 Things You Probably Haven't Cleaned In Way Too Long (That You Really Should)
Voting Rules
Vote up if it's been more than six months since you've intentionally cleaned any of these things.

If you've neglected some of the things on this list, you should probably get to them today, this morning, tonight, as soon as possible. Dirty everyday objects are a great way to get sick, especially if you inadvertently touch your mouth and eyes a lot (which the vast majority of people do). Anywhere or anything touched by other people on a fairly regular basis, or that you touch (after having touched other things that can be touched by other people on a fairly regular basis), can be absolute cesspools. There's stuff you take for granted too, like your shower-heads or your faucets in general. Not just the shiny parts that people can see, but if you ever peek under your faucets, it's pretty nasty, and that's the stuff that cleans your hands. Let me break that down: the water you use to clean your hands is getting dirty before you even clean your hands. 

Listen, this list is more of a reminder and a good checklist, albeit a fun one to share with friends, that should remind you that household objects that may seem clean or "spit-shined" shouldn't be ignored. It's not supposed to send you into a Howard Hughes-style episode where you end up peeing in jars, but it is supposed to let you know that yes, some people clean the bottoms of their shoes, and other people don't clean their elbows enough. Your soap holder isn't self-cleaning and neither is anything in your bathroom. Also your Brita water filter, how long has it been? You know they sell replacements right? As much anxiety as this list costs, just remember to vote on everything you haven't cleaned in over six months and actually change that sometime soon. 

'Cause you nasty.
