To keep a bedroom clean, keep a schedule for regular tasks, like washing the sheets and dusting surfaces, attend to other tasks while cleaning the bedroom, make the bed every day, put away clothing immediately and dedicate spaces for all types of storage. Combining daily tasks with weekly or monthly chores helps keep cleaning manageable.
Create a chart or list of all the items that need to get done in the bedroom, then check them off as they are completed.
- Create a schedule
- Clean during other tasks
- Keep the bed made and the clothing put away
- Create dedicated storage
Determine how often it is necessary to vacuum floors, wash sheets, dust surfaces and pick up clutter. Designate 1 or 2 days per week for these tasks so they become a routine.
It is sometimes easier to keep a clean bedroom while multitasking. Talk on the telephone, watch television or listen to a book on tape while completing daily or weekly chores.
Get in the habit of making the bed upon waking up and putting clothes on appropriate hangers or in the proper drawers as soon as it comes out of the dryer. This reduces clutter and gives the bedroom a neat appearance.
Decide where to store personal property like jewelry, shoes, ties and other accessories. Create a dedicated space for them, then return those items to their chosen storage location after every use.
