In the spring, my mind turns to not only decluttering and clearing out my home, but also cleaning up and getting a breath of fresh air in my house. A great project to get you going is to tackle that bedroom. Sunday is perfect because it gets you ready for the week coming up and you can start off with a fresh clean bedroom.
So get the sheets off the bed, and start the laundry. Vacuum down that mattress, and even flip it over and rotate it….always a good thing to do. Make sure you vacuum it again after you flip it. But don’t stop there. I have all my laundry in piles getting it out of the bedroom and taking turns in the machines.
Move your bed and tables and give your space a good vacuum. Don’t forget those insignificant corners! baseboards are magnets to collect dust and all sorts of other little beasties. Use a damp cloth to wipe down surfaces. I don’t use a lot of cleaners…quite often I will resort to good old water and vinegar.
This is also a good time to take stock of what is lingering in your bedroom that shouldn’t be there, or things you are ready to get rid of. Perhaps you can even go through that wardrobe and clear out items that you haven’t worn for a while (or maybe shouldn’t wear).
Even your windows get forgotten. If you have blinds, put that brush attachment on your vacuum and give t
hem a go. That vinegar and water will work great on the glass. Don’t forget the window sills that collect dirt, use a damp cloth to clean them up.
Getting your bedroom clean will not only give you a great sense of accomplishment, but it helps keep those sick days down. Happy Sunday…enjoy!!
