Tips to Clean a Bedroom:
1. Make Your Bed Every Day
Sometimes it feels like you might not have the time, but this one, simple task can set the stage for the rest of your day.
Several years back, my husband started taking on this responsibility! I love that he does this each day. As US Navy Admiral, William H, McRaven says, “If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.”
2. Put Away Clothing Daily
Laundry is a constant battle in most busy homes, ours included. Do your best to keep the dirty laundry picked up and in the dirty laundry hamper.
When it comes to clean clothes, try to make it a routine to put them away as soon as they are folded.
3. Open the Blinds
Keeping the blinds open will make your room feel brighter and in turn, cleaner! I like to make a habit of opening our bedroom blinds each morning. What a wonderful way to start the day!
4. Change Sheets Weekly
I designate Sunday or Monday each week as the day I change our sheets. Keeping a consistent routine is a great way to remember when to do this.
This topic makes me think of my college days. I lived in a co-ed dorm my freshman year that was much like an apartment. I’ll never forget talking with some guys down the hall that indicated they washed their sheets only once, maybe twice a semester. Umm, what?!
Something tells me their mothers had no idea how their boys were living! Yuck!
5. Clean Off Night Stand Daily
The bedroom should be calm and relaxing. Take a few moment to clear off anything that might have landed on your nightstand as this is a space that will be staring at you when you are in bed.
Keep only the essentials by your bed.
6. Clean Any Bedroom Mirrors or Glass
One time weekly is plenty for cleaning mirror and glass. Sometimes it gets pushed to every other week at my home and that still manages to be good enough.
7. Dust Weekly
A clean, dust free sleep space is a must. When I dust, I do this first thing in the morning so things have settled down at bed time.
I have a lot of painted furniture, so I typically just wipe down our bedroom furniture with a slightly dampened cloth. That typically does the trick!
8. Vacuum or Sweep Weekly
Depending on the type of flooring you have, vacuum OR sweep your bedroom floors weekly.
I tend to fold my laundry in our bedroom floor, so it’s key to have a clean floor for the clean clothes!
Our carpet is almost 13 years old, and we desperately need to replace it. I am torn between getting carpet again or laminate flooring that looks like hard wood. I would LOVE your feedback, so if you have an opinion on that subject leave a comment below!
There you have it!
