A step-by-step guide to deep cleaning your bedroom!
- Remove the pillow covers, bedsheets, mattress cover, and comforter. Add them to the washing machine. We recommend doing this first as the washing cycle can run while you deep clean the rest of the bedroom.
- Your alternative blankets can simply be machine washed with cold water. Do not forget to set a low temperature and also add a wool ball to the dryer.
- In case you see any clumps forming, you can pause the cycle once every 20 to 30 minutes to break them with your hands.
2. Clean pillows
- It is advisable to clean your pillows at least twice a year. You can increase the frequency if you have any allergies.
- Foam pillows should be washed by hand in warm, soapy water. Do not machine wash them or add them to the dryer. Let them air-dry outdoors.
- You can add pillows made of nylon, cotton, or any other synthetic materials to the washing machine, along with a detergent.
3. Washing walls and windows
Who said the dust sits only on the side tables and dressers? It is also present on the walls, ceiling fans, moldings, and window sills.
- Use a squeaky clean cotton mop to wipe the dust off walls and corners.
- You can use the vacuum accessories to get rid of the cobwebs in the corners of the walls.
- Do not forget to vacuum your HVAC systems and steer them clear of dust.
- If your room has a ceiling fan, wipe the dust off the blades using an old, unused pillow cover.
- Clean the switchboards and the doorknobs by using a damp cloth and disinfectant solution or spray.
4. Clean the floors and surfaces
- You can use a microfiber cloth dipped in a warm soapy solution to wipe the floors.
- Reach under the bed by using a vacuum extension.
- In case you have hardwood floors, you can vacuum and mop the floor.
- To add some freshness to your carpets, you can begin sprinkling some baking soda to the fabric. Let it sit for a few minutes and vacuum the rug at least two times, once in each direction. This way, you can be sure of deep cleaning your carpet effectively.
- It is also worth checking the condition of your smoke detector and making sure it is working.
- You can use a clean and damp cloth to dust the dirt off the furniture, lamps, door frames, and surfaces.
● When you dust any surface, always remember starting from the top because the dust is knocked on to the lower surfaces, which can be eventually dusted.
