It's that time once more! Another set of hot tips from our cleaning wizards here at Poundstretcher. This time we're telling you how to tackle your bedroom.
So, whilst it's a good idea to get into a habit of cleaning your bedroom out at least once a week, it's also good to keep on top of things on a daily basis too.
1. De-clutter, De-clutter, De-clutter
Sound familiar? It ought to, it's something we make sure to mention every week! It's always best to get rid of all the old junk (receipts, tissues, etc.) from your bedroom space, be they on display or tucked away in your bedside drawers.
Also, be sure to check under your bed and through your wardrobe for anything you no longer want or need. If it's in good shape, it might be a good time to gather them up and think about donating or selling them?
2. Laundry Round-up
This applies to both your clean and dirty clothes that may be scattered around your room. Add your dirty ones to your hamper (we know how quickly dirty clothes can pile up on the floor), and fold/hang up any of your clean ones so they're out the way.
3. Dust Across All Your Surfaces
Everything from the bed headboards, your side table, and the top of your wardrobe should all be dusted and polished with some help from Mr. Sheen!
Don't get your light fixtures and curtains too! Dust up high and down low.
4. Vacuum And Clean Your Floor
Get into every possible nook and cranny, making sure to not forget underneath and behind your bed and wardrobe (if possible). Remember to focus on this after you've already dusted so you're not creating more work for yourself.
5. Sort Out The Bed
If your bed has just been changed recently, then simply make your bed and get it all nice and straightened out. Otherwise, strip everything off your bed and throw all the mattress protectors and sheets right into your laundry hamper. There's nothing better than a nice fresh bed!
6. Keep Organised
Whether it's shoes, belts, jewellery, bags, ties, what-have-you, then it's a good idea to give them a designated place. Plastic storage is a good way of doing this, or just giving them their own drawer or shelf.
There you have it; short and sweet. It really is no different than cleaning other rooms in your room, you just have to remember to keep that bed fresh and clean!
