If you're like many people, your bed is a place of stress relief. But what happens when it becomes cluttered with clothes and shoes? Decluttering your bedroom can seem like an overwhelming task but with this guide, you'll have everything you need in order to make this process as easy as possible. There are some simple ways to clean up your bedroom so that it's the perfect spot for restful sleep at night. Continue reading to learn how you can do just that!
1. Clean your bedroom floor
Did you know before you start cleaning your bedroom floor, it’s important to first dust all surfaces with a feather duster or microfiber cloth? Once you’ve dusted your furniture, it’ll be easier to vacuum once the dust particles settle on the floor and get a more thorough job done. From your cabinets and bedside drawers to your study table, remember to start from the top and work your way down; this will help prevent any dust that has been wiped off onto other items by mistake. During this time, you can also organise your clothing, books and other items to cut the clutter.
After doing so, you can then suck up as much dust as possible when doing proper vacuuming. It is also highly recommended to vacuum in one direction and repeat in the opposite direction to pick up more dust efficiently. The same applies when you’re mopping.
2. Tackle your curtains
While you’re dusting your way around the bedroom, don’t forget your curtains. In fact, you may be surprised how much dust has gathered in the curtains over time.
In order to make your living space feel brighter, make it a point to take down your curtains once in a while and wash or dry clean them. If you’re cleaning your curtains for the first time, we’ve previously covered the general care instructions for different types of curtains to ensure the proper care required. For a quick fix, you can also lay your drapery flat on the floor to make it easier when vacuuming.
On the other hand, if you’re considering curtain cleaning services, take note that there are onsite and offsite cleaning options for various providers in Singapore. That means that you can explore the option that accommodates your schedule and fits your household needs the best.
3. Wash all of your bedding
To reduce dust and other allergens in your bedroom, you may also consider washing your bedsheets at least once every two weeks or more often.
One way to go about it is by cleaning your bedsheets with other clothing but you’ll want to make sure they’re of similar colour. While you can wash most bedsheets at home in your washing machine, the help of laundry and dry cleaning services may come in handy for more delicate fabrics.
The best part is, you can also include your mattress protector, blanket, pillow and bolster case and more when scheduling your laundry pick-up. This helps to make your household chores more manageable, especially if you’re doing the cleaning yourself.
4. Don’t overlook the dirty laundry
If you’ve organised your clothing in step 1, then you’ll know that there are clothes that need a good wash. As you’re sorting out your clothes, this is also the right time to consider donating or selling any pieces of clothing that you have grown out of and are not wearing anymore. Or if there are pieces you want to wear longer, check out this guide to extend the life of your clothes.
Most clothes can go into the washing machine, while others may need to be soaked and hand-washed. To ensure your clothes get the proper care they deserve, you can also opt for laundry services and send your clothes along with your bedding.
