7 Steps to Clean Your Bedroom
What images do you have in mind when you think of your bedroom? Many people consider their bedroom to be their home's ultimate sanctuary, a more private and personal space for peace and quiet. The bedroom is a place to rest and unwind, watch shows while eating your favourite ice cream, read the latest bestseller, or play a few rounds of blanket hide-and-seek with your 2-year-old. And, of course, sleep!
Although your bedroom is unlikely to see as much foot traffic as other areas of your home, it should still be cleaned on a regular basis. After all, it is the location where you spend the most time each day breathing indoor air. Bedrooms attract more dust than any other room in the house (unless you have kids, where bedrooms also collect picture books, sippy cups, toys, and stuffed animals). Accumulated things in your bedroom like books, magazines, some late-night snacks, or other things make it more cluttered. Remove that clutter from your room first to make it look organised.
Consider your bedroom after a week of rushing around in the mornings to get ready for the day, followed by evenings of laying around, folding laundry, and reading magazines. Be your bedroom average-sized or of the size of a closet with just one window we have some tips for you to clean your room.
Cleaning up a cluttered bedroom may appear to be a daunting task, but with a simple plan in place, you can clean thoroughly and in record time. Examine your bedroom and how much time you'll need to devote to the process. If you plan ahead of time, you can accomplish a lot in a short period of time!
Here's a basic speed cleaning road map to get you started:
• To begin, bring in a garbage bag and pick up trash throughout the room. Getting the garbage out of the way ensures that you won't spill or soil your linens while cleaning.
• After that, take care of the bed. The tone of the room is set by an uncluttered bed with a smooth blanket and neat pillows. If you have the time, change the sheets first. If not, shake the blanket out on a patch of the floor to refresh it before making the bed. A tidy bed can also be used to store items such as picture frames or books, which can be neatly lined up and easily replaced after cleaning.
• Put clutter in its proper place. Straighten out any nightstand items, such as lamps and knickknacks, and return any kitchen items to their proper place. Put your clothes in the laundry bin or in a pile in your closet to fold later. Start a sorting pile with items from other rooms that you can remove and deal with later. We want the bedroom to be clean and not become a "Where does this go?" game.
• Clean the furniture by the help of microfiber dust wipes. When you're in a hurry, who needs polishing spray and a rag? Dusting furniture, a TV, bookshelves, and picture frames is a breeze with pre-cut and folded microfiber cloths.
• Sweep or vacuum the floor. This is an important step because a lot of dust and crumbs settle here. A quick lap around the room will suffice. If you have more time, take another spin.
To maintain consistency and avoiding laziness begin from one corner and then move to other parts of the room. You can lose focus if you move around aimlessly. Also, instead of tackling multiple chores at once, try to focus on one at a time. If you don't have time to vacuum or dust your blinds but try anyway, you won't do a good job.
Ways to Make Cleaning Your Room by having Fun
There's no denying that getting rid of dust and trash, as well as replacing bed sheets and drapes, is essential for your overall health. It is also necessary for the overall health of your home. Is it possible to have fun while cleaning your room? If you follow these tips, you'll have a clean room in no time.
• Move around (more) – Listen to upbeat music to keep your body and mind moving. A fast-paced song will help you get your feet moving, while a steady beat will help you focus on your task. When you're singing along to your favourite singer, you might be surprised at how quickly you can clean a room! Bonus: You can exercise without going to the gym!
• Push yourself — If you enjoy a good competition, consider organising a cleaning challenge. Can you clean the floor in under five minutes? Did you change the sheets faster than the commercial aired on TV? By setting small goals for yourself, you can complete your entire task in a surprisingly short amount of time.
• Treat yourself — Motivate yourself to complete the task by doing something you enjoy, such as drinking coffee or watching your favourite reality show. You could watch the show anyway, but won't you be more satisfied if you've already completed your task?
• Involve your children — Cleaning with children may appear to be counterproductive, but it relieves you of some of the work while also providing unexpected bonding time. Younger children will take pride in their assistance, while older children can practise math (counting how long it takes to fold a pillowcase) and science (where does the dust go in the vacuum, anyway?)
