National Clean Your Bedroom Day is May 10th

May 10th is National Clean Your Bedroom Day, so what better way to celebrate than by giving your sleeping space a thorough deep cleaning? A clean and tidy bedroom can improve your overall mood and health, so take this opportunity to refresh your room to create a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. By following these steps, you can transform your bedroom into a clean, organized and relaxing environment. Happy cleaning!

Declutter. The first step in deep cleaning your bedroom is to declutter the space. Start by removing anything that doesn’t belong in your bedroom, such as dishes, trash and random items that have accumulated over time. Then, go through your personal belongings and donate or throw away anything you no longer need or use.

Remove and wash bedding. Next, remove all your bedding including sheets, pillowcases and comforters, and wash them in hot water and mild soap. This will help kill any dust mites or bacteria that may be lurking in your bedding. Be sure to also wash throw blankets, decorative pillows, curtains and other fabric items in your bedroom.

Dust and clean surfaces. Using a microfiber cloth or duster, dust all surfaces in your bedroom, including dressers, nightstands, lamps, electronics and picture frames. Then use a damp cloth to wipe down surfaces, such as mirrors and windows for a sparkly finish.

Focus on details. Once you’ve completed the big tasks, focus on the details to make your bedroom feel fresh and clean. Wipe down your baseboards, windowsills, light fixtures and switch plates with a damp cloth. Don’t forget to dust your ceiling fan, blinds or curtains and wipe down your window frames.
