Unlike the bathroom or kitchen, the bedroom doesn’t need much to keep it clean. The vital thing to do is to keep it tidy and free of clutter. If you routinely aim to do this, you will have a clean bedroom that is easy to maintain.
To have an easy time keeping your bedroom tidy, you need to have a bedroom cleaning checklist. To help you out, here is a checklist you can use:
In This Post:
Take Out the Trash
This is the easiest task you should do, and its purpose is to take care of simple, everyday messes. If you have clothes tags, tissues, snack wrappers, or other small trash, take it out, so it doesn’t pile up.
Put Dirty Clothes in the Hamper
If you had a busy week, you have one or two dirty clothes lying around the floor. You should pick them up and place them in the hamper.
To avoid leaving dirty clothes on the floor, place a hamper in the closet. Of course, use an open bin hamper, which is easier to use during the rushing mornings when you are more likely to leave clothes lying around.
Put Away the Clean Clothes
As you prepare for your mornings, it’s normal to be in a hurry and leave a few clean clothes on the floor. To keep your bedroom clean, clean the floor space and tuck the clean shirts and pants into the dresser drawers.
You also should hang the blouses and sweaters, preferably facing the same direction.
Wash the Sheets
Even if you shower every night and keep food out of the bedroom, your sheets are bound to get dirty, and you should wash and change them regularly.
At least once a week, remove the sheets, comforter, and pillowcases. If your duvet has a cover, remove the cover and wash it with your sheets.
You still need to wash the comforter, but you shouldn’t clean it with your sheets (once a week)—you can get away with washing it once or twice a month.
Clean the Surfaces
These include the walls, floor, tables, chairs, desks, vanities, nightstands, and other surfaces prone to accumulating dust or becoming drop zones for small objects.
You should wash the surfaces with dusting spray, antibacterial wipes, glass cleaner, or other products.
As you clean the surfaces, don’t only consider the tops — also pay attention to the fronts, backs, and legs. Also, clean the head posts and headboard, as these two are prone to dust bunnies.
While at it, clean the room’s lamps, lights, mirrors, and glass items. For the best outcome, use a glass cleaner and fresh clothes. Avoid damp or grimy clothes to polish the glass surfaces, as they will leave ugly streaks.
This is the checklist you can use to keep your bedroom clean and tidy. You can do the cleaning if you have the time and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, but if you want your bedroom spotless, hire an Austin Cleaning Company to help.
