Your bedroom is the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see at night. This is a special space that exists only to meet your personal needs and needs. It should be treated as well as you deserve, right?
Try to think of the deep cleaning of the bedroom as a "spa day", this may make it easier for you.
Things You'll Need:
- Laundry detergent
- Dryer sheets
- Soft cloths (like microfiber)
- Long-handled duster or soft mop
- Vacuum cleaner
- Boxes or laundry baskets
- Garbage bags
- Glass cleaner
Do you have a week’s sweater thrown on the back of a chair, or a basket of clean clothes hidden under a pile of (and clean) sheets? All these things need to disappear before you start any meaningful cleaning. Put them all back where they belong now, or take them out of the room and hide them elsewhere.
Step 2: Strip your bed
Blankets, sheets, pillowcases, mattress protectors-all these must be washed, and because this takes a long time, you will want to start right away. To keep the mattress clean while scrubbing the rest of the room and dusting off, cover it with a clean sheet or blanket.
Step 3: Wash your bedding
Quilts and blankets need the longest drying time, so they should be the first thing to put in the washing machine. Follow the manufacturer's washing instructions printed on the label, which should be in the lower right corner.
If you have to knead the quilt or blanket tightly into a ball before you can stuff it into the dryer, then the hot air will not have any space to move around the fabric, and you know, dry it. If your sheets are too big for the dryer, it is best to hang them to air dry.
An outdoor clothesline can dry them the fastest, but if you don't have a clothesline or if the weather is bad, hang them on a set chair, preferably in a room with a fan. By spreading them out and keeping air circulating, quilts and blankets can dry out in a few hours.
Next, wash your pillows. If you have not removed the label from the pillow, please check the manufacturer's washing instructions. Generally, pillows filled with down, feathers, cotton wool and fiber fillings can be washed in a washing machine set to a gentle cycle and using warm water. Memory foam pillows are not machine washable, but if they have removable covers, check their labels to see if they can be thrown in the washing machine. If you are not sure of your pillow type and cannot find any cleaning instructions on its label, please check the manufacturer’s website.
Pillows can be left to air dry, and they should be loosened occasionally when they are dry to help them regain their shape. If you prefer to use a dryer to speed things up, first, check the pillow’s label to make sure it’s ok, because some fillings will melt or catch fire in the dryer.
If it is safe to do so, put a few tennis balls or laundry balls in the pillow to prevent their filling from clumping, and periodically stop the dryer during the cycle to loosen it by hand, and pull the filling as needed to help the pillow keep the shape.
Finally, follow the instructions on the label to wash and dry your sheets and mattress protector.
Step 4: Eliminate clutter
Anything you see that can be put away immediately should be. Collect all loose paper, make sure to put any important things in a safe place, and throw away the rest. Throw any rubbish into the bag and take it outside the room.
Next, start putting all the little things on the bedside table, dressing table, and dressing table into a box or laundry basket, and then wipe them with a damp cloth while removing dust. Throw away any damaged or expired items, such as old cosmetics or medicines. Decide which items you want to keep in the bedroom, and put the remaining items in a box to put in other rooms, resell or donate.
Step 5: Clean out your closet
This may be the hardest part of cleaning the bedroom: To make the bedroom truly clean, you must first make a mess, not to mention the highly emotional process of sifting through old clothes. Put everything hanging in the closet on the bed. Scan your closet floor for any clothes that have fallen from the hangers, and then throw them into the laundry room.
Next, if you have a shelf on top of your closet, remove everything on it and place it on the dressing table or on the floor. Decide if you want to donate any items, and if so, put them aside. Repair or replace any broken or damaged items, such as old shoe boxes or storage bags. Wipe everything quickly with a soft microfiber cloth to remove all dust, then turn your attention back to the closet and dust the shelf before changing items.
Once the top of the closet is organized, it's time to get to the bottom. Pull everything out—yes, everything—and throw away any rubbish or broken items. Use a vacuum cleaner or broom to clean the floor. Screen your items, put aside any items you want to donate, then put them back in the closet and organize them according to your lifestyle.
Now it's clothes: pick up one thing at a time, shake it lightly and quickly brush it with your hand to remove all the dust, then put it back in the closet. When you come across something you want to donate or entrust, put them aside. After putting all the clothes back in the closet, pack all the items you decide to donate and take them out of the room.
Step 6: Organize the drawer
If you want to clean up your bedroom, you can skip this part, but now that you have cleaned your closet, you can also do this too, right? Throw anything you don't want into the donation pile, close your drawer, and move on to the next step, feeling more fulfilled.
Step 7: Clean the bottom of the bed
Just like you do in the closet: take out everything under the bed, throw out the trash, throw the dirty unmatched socks into the basket (oh, that’s where they hide), and put all the pets Put the toys in a basket, and then replace or repair the damaged storage container. Use a broom or vacuum cleaner to clean the floor under the bed frame, and then put everything back neatly.
Step 8: Dust the walls and windows
Before starting this step, you may need to wear a soft cloth face mask to prevent sneezing or allergies.
Use a long-handled cloth mop around the room where the wall and ceiling intersect, check for cobwebs in the corner, and then continue to wipe the wall from top to bottom. If you have a ceiling fan, use a step stool to clean the blades with a damp cloth.
Use a vacuum cleaner with upholstery accessories to clean curtains and blinds from top to bottom; clean window glass with glass cleaner, and wipe the window sill with a soft cloth.
Step 9: Clean the surface
Use a clean damp cloth to wipe off any dust on the dressing table, bookshelves, bookcases, door frames, lights, headboards, and all other surfaces. Pull the furniture away from the wall and use a cloth or vacuum hose to dust the back and sides. Use glass cleaner on the mirror.
Step 10: Tidy the floor
Make sure everything has been picked up from the floor, then vacuum or sweep and mop the floor. Move the furniture back to its original position and clean any areas you missed.
Step 11: Put your room back together
Bring back all the boxes and baskets you took out of the room and put everything back in place. Fold and put away all clean clothes, and put clean sheets and clean pillows on the bed. Maybe light a few scented candles to make the room smell good and give it an overall atmosphere. Ask someone to pick up donations or put them in the car. Take a shower, lie on a clean bed, and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
