From our owner, founder, and CEO Wendy K. Clark“We will continue to wear masks in your home unless you invite us not to wear them. We have always appreciated being in your home, that is your sanctuary and safe place. We respect your preference. Let the team know when they enter or let us know by responding to your clean day reminder. As always, thank you. You stood with us, we are grateful.”~ Wendy

The 4 Dirtiest Areas in your Kitchen

Who has time to be researching where dirt, germs, and bacteria are lurking in your kitchen? We do! Let Carpe Diem Cleaning be the friend that tells you about these important things.


According to  Jason Tetro a microbiologist who authored The Germ Files found that the  four dirtiest areas of your kitchen that should be cleaned most often are:

  1. The area around your kitchen sink – it’s all the water, dirty dishes, etc.
  2. Your cutting board – this one should be obvious.
  3. The handle of your refrigerator- we don’t wash our hands before opening.
  4. The handle of your oven.


You want to follow proper infection prevention guidelines, and please stay away from sponges on this one.

  1. Dilute bleach or hydrogen peroxide disinfectant.
  2. Spray on the area.
  3. Let sit for one minute (We have time to do this at your scheduled cleaning!)
  4. Rinse thoroughly with water.
  5. Dry with a microfiber towel.
