Cleaning: Have you forgotten any of these places

There are many places in your home that you don’t think about cleaning. They’re not hidden in the sense of being tucked away in a hard-to-access space. They’re right there, staring at you, and you pass by them every single day. These are the spots where dust bunnies can thrive, allergens can build and more. 

Be sure not to miss them next time to ensure maximum home health.

Cabinets and Drawers 

Cabinets and drawers are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning, but they need to be cleaned just as often as the rest of your house. You can start by pulling out all of the contents and wiping them down with a damp cloth or sponge. If there is any food left behind, use a little bit of dish soap to remove it. Then wipe down the inside of the cabinet or drawer with a clean cloth dipped in warm water. Finally, dry everything off with another clean cloth or towel. 


Baseboards are also overlooked when it comes to cleaning because they’re hidden away from sight most of the time. However, they tend to build up dust over time if they’re not cleaned regularly and this can lead to allergies if you breathe in too much dust every day. To clean baseboards, use an old toothbrush or rag and some water mixed with vinegar or lemon juice (a teaspoon per cup) as this will kill off any germs on them without damaging them as bleach would. 

The Back of Your Refrigerator 

Get a soft cloth and wipe down the back of your refrigerator. You’ll be surprised at how much dust accumulates there over time. Make sure to remove all food from shelves before cleaning as well as any containers or items stored on top of it (since they can easily fall off). 

Your Toilet Brush Holder 

This is another area that people often forget about when cleaning their bathrooms! Remove anything from inside the brush holder and clean with warm water and soap or vinegar. 

The Back Of The Toilet 

A toilet is a place where germs can build up if not cleaned regularly. The back of your toilet often gets neglected, but it needs to be cleaned just as much as the rest of your bathroom. 

The Shower Curtain Rod 

Your shower curtain rod is another area that is often overlooked when it comes to cleaning. This can lead to mold and mildew buildup if you don’t clean it regularly. Simply remove the hooks that hold your shower curtain rod in place and clean with warm, soapy water.

What Our Residents Have To Say

My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!

I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.

Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.

I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.

I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
