WHO KNEW owning a home could be so tedious?
Not only are you in charge of things if they break, but you actually have to clean every single spot imaginable if you want to avoid any pests and messes.
In fact, it seems like even the unimaginable spots need to be cleaned – including the spot between the stove and the counter.
Michigan resident Alyssa, who owns a cleaning company, revealed there's a spot everyone misses, even during a deep clean.
In her video, she showed how she pulled out the stove from its spot and revealed grease smeared into the side of the stove and the countertop.
The floor was also covered in grime.
After uncovering the spot, she used a vacuum cleaner to clean up the bits of food on the floor and a grease-fighting detergent for the smears.
Additionally, she used a scraping tool to remove the grease, which had also coated the side of the countertops.

But that's not the only thing you're forgetting to clean.
“When you’re cleaning your bathroom, do this last,” the expert, named Skylar Toth, instructed in a video posted to her popular TikTok page.
“Rest your toilet brush underneath the toilet seat and pour hot water over it.
“This sanitizes the brush and gets rid of any leftover bacteria,” she explained.
According to a study conducted by A Cleaner Home, an average toilet has about “34,000 units of bacteria” living in it at any time.
This means the brush a toilet is cleaned with is likely to be pretty dirty, too.
Despite many of Skylar’s followers celebrating the easy tip, many were wary of the long-term effects of the cleaning method.
“Don’t pour hot water into a toilet ever,” one user wrote, with several others sending similar messages.
The concern is that the hot water can ruin the seal between the toilet and the house’s pipes, which would cause leakage.
This worry was confirmed by heating, air, and plumbing company Gilmore Air, who said that pouring boiling water into a toilet can also crack the porcelain.
However, Atlantis Plumbing said using hot water, rather than boiling water, should not cause damage to any pipes or sealant.
There are plenty of other ways to clean a toilet brush for folks who are worried about using hot water to do the trick.
One TikToker recommended using a silicone toilet brush because they are easier to clean, while another suggested spraying the brush with cleaning products and letting it dry before packing it up.
