Spring Cleaning: The Bedroom
Gather Cleaning Supplies
A deep spring clean needs a variety of supplies that will change depending on your bedroom’s layout. Here is a list of general cleaning tools to get started:
Once all your supplies are in place, close the door, open the windows and get down to spring cleaning your bedroom.
Grab bags or boxes and take care of the last little bits of clutter. An efficient spring cleaning how-to? Sort items into categories, like dirty laundry, things that belong in the living room or things you want to donate. Put these items away, but do not get distracted by outside tasks or things happening in another area of the house.
When it comes to a good how-to, we say to always begin spring cleaning your bedroom with dusting and always dust higher surfaces first. Begin with one area, like bookshelves, and move clockwise around the room to minimize dust settling on surfaces you just cleaned.
Remove items like books and knick-knacks from shelves, dust underneath them, and dust them as you put them back. Do not forget to dust easily overlooked places like the bedframe and especially the closet. Remember to dust lampshades and even the tops of doors.
Clean the Windows
Wash the Bedding
Perhaps most important of all when spring cleaning your bedroom is cleaning the bedding and mattress. Remove all bedding, including mattress covers and your 100% Egyptian cotton sheets, and wash in the hottest water the material allows.
Thoroughly vacuum the mattress and allow it to air out. If you have space outside, try putting it in the sun for a few hours and rotating it halfway through. If you cannot get your mattress outside, lean it near an open window.
This is an ideal opportunity to know how to spring clean under the bed. Find that lost sock, the remote control, or abandoned earplugs and clean them. Reorganize any boxes or storage. Vacuum thoroughly and wipe down the bed frame.
