Clean the toilet roll holder? What are we, neat freaks? No, but we are about to slap some unsavory knowledge upside your noggin: Every time a toilet flushes, it turns into a giant aerosol that mists the bathroom with germs. Yes, all that stuff that was in your toilet is now out, raining invisible germy droplets all over the things you touch most, like that roll of toilet paper and the apparatus that holds it in place.

Clean this forgotten area by first removing the roll of toilet paper and then misting the toilet paper holder with a disinfectant spray and letting the spray dry. This will ensure the antibacterial ingredients in the spray do their germ-fighting job. Then, spritz the toilet paper holder again and wipe over it to remove dust and grime [source: The Maids].
