How to clean your bedroom daily
So you have finished cleaning your kitchen and bathroom. Which room should you clean next? Well, probably the one you use the very most: your bedroom. After all, it’s your most personal space and you surely want to keep it organized and neat. This article will teach you the basics of daily bedroom cleaning. In general, it’s best to clean your room lightly every day and more thoroughly whenever you feel it’s necessary although it’s recommended to do it at least once every month or so.
Where to start?
This time, it’s best to start by ventilating your room before cleaning anything. Pull your curtains open, raise the blinds and open the windows. Let the air flow into the room for about 10 minutes. If the weather is nice, then you can keep the windows open for as long as you want. This will help reduce the air humidity in your room, especially in your bed, because bedbugs and mites tend to reproduce in moist environments.
Also, while your windows are open, take advantage of the opportunity to lay out your sheets and blankets in the sun. Extend them neatly over a windowsill so that they catch all the sun’s rays. This will also help dry them out and reduce humidity.
After the air in your room is nice and fresh, then you can start cleaning.
- Begin by making your bed. Make sure to shake off your sheets to both air them and remove any debris that might have gathered on them. Also be sure to extend them nicely before placing the blankets and covers on top.
- Dust your furniture. You can use a dust cloth or a feather duster to remove dust from your nightstands, the headboard and bed frame of your bed, your TV, game consoles, etc.
- Shake off your carpets every day and vacuum them once a week. If your floor does not have a carpet (it’s made of tile, wood or parquet), then clean it every couple of days with a mop. Also spray a cleaning solution all over its surface and scrub it well with a cloth. If you can, polish it.
- Clean your windows and mirrors with a commercial glass-cleaning solution or water and soap. Make sure to dry them thoroughly with a dry cloth so that no stains remain. Also, clean your window frames, so that everything looks neat.
Now that everything is clean, you can light up a scented candle or an aromatic incense to give your room a lovely smell that will last for the rest of the day.
