10 Tips for Keeping Your Bedroom Clean
April 11, 2022

At the end of the day, or just on a lazy weekend, you want a quiet place to lay down your head and relax. 

How to keep your bedroom clean?

However, if your bedroom is always a mess, it can interfere with your ability to relax. In fact, it can actually interfere with your sleep. A messy room creates a chaotic, racing mind. A neat and tidy room has the opposite effect, creating a peaceful and serene environment perfect for sleep and relaxation. 

Here, we offer 10 tips to keep your bedroom clean and restful.

1. Manage your daily clothing

Everyday, you wear a mix of clothes (although if you work from home, pyjamas might be your only clothes!). While some might be ready for the laundry after one use, others might still have some wear in them a few more times. 

Managing your daily clothing helps keep your room neater. Every time you change, consider if it’s time for the hamper, dry cleaning, or reuse for the week. 

Toss dirty clothes in the hamper, and if you have a lot of clothes that need dry cleaning, keep a separate bag for those. Anything you plan to re-wear can be hung up. 

Your pyjamas can be neatly folded on your bed or a chair or placed on a hook in the closet. You’ll have perfect peace of mind when you start following this simple rule.

2. Have a trash can

Many people don’t have a trash can in their bedroom. However, there are all kinds of things you need to toss, from cosmetic wipes to cotton balls used to remove nail polish, and “clippings” to old wrappers. 

If you think a trash can is too unsightly for your bedroom, you’d be surprised how nice today’s trash cans look. You can choose something slick and modern or consider using trash cans designed for the bathroom, as they tend to be quite stylish. 

Then, be sure to empty them once full. Put little trash bags in the bottom of the bin so they are ready once you empty the old one.

3. Wash your sheets

Sheets are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning and laundry. However, every night you shed skin, hair, body oils, sweat, and more.

Unfortunately, every mattress has dust mites. So, you should be cleaning your sheets every week or at least twice a month to keep your bed clean and fresh. 

You can also vacuum your mattress once a month or so. A duvet cover is preferable over a comforter, as you can toss the cover in with the rest of your sheets. 

Your comforter or duvet should be fluffed and shaken out when you put on your fresh sheets. It should be laundered every few months unless it is stained, in which case clean it as soon as the spill occurs.

4. Don’t eat in the bedroom

This can be a hard rule to follow for some people, but that TV binge-watching while snacking in bed is a terrible, messy habit.

5. Clear the clutter

Don’t let your bedroom become a dumping ground. It’s easy to start tossing things in your room when guests come over, thinking they are out of sight and out of mind. However, this creates clutter. Other common things that can add to your bedroom clutter include:

  • Books, magazines, and paperwork
  • Computer equipment
  • Snacks
  • Clothes and shoes
  • Perfume bottles and jewellery
  • Ties and socks
  • Cosmetics and beauty products

Well, you get the picture! Every surface from your floor to your dressers and bedside tables becomes a disorganized mess over time. To keep your bedroom clean, you need to start with a clean slate. 

Go through your entire room and remove anything that doesn’t belong there. For the things that do, hang them up, put them in drawers, or get them organized. Everything should have a logical place, so they are easy to find.

For items you need, but don’t use every day, they can be placed in a basket, stored in drawers, placed in containers under the bed, etc. A good idea is to invest in bedroom furniture with lots of drawers, so you can keep things neat. Jewellery boxes, tie hangers, shoe trees, and makeup kits, for example, all help keep things organized.

6. Clean all the surfaces

As you clear the clutter, dust and clean all the surfaces. You can also wipe down your mirrors and windows to get them sparkling. 

Don’t forget your light fixtures or ceiling fan, as these are notorious for collecting dust. Residue from substances like hair spray can float up and stick to the blades of your ceiling fan.

7. Sweep or vacuum

Depending on what type of floors you have, you should sweep or vacuum at least once a week, including under the bed, furniture, and chairs. Make sure you vacuum those dust bunnies!

8. Shake out curtains and area rugs

Curtains and area rugs collect dust and debris over time. If your vacuum has a soft surface duster, use it on your curtains or window treatments. 

Your area rugs should be vacuumed regularly, and if you’re feeling particularly energetic, you should also shake them out outside. Curtains can be dry cleaned or tossed in the laundry if the manufacturer provided cleaning instructions. This can be done a few times a year. 

9. Make your bed

Whether you just cleaned your sheets or you are off to work or school, a made bed is much nicer to come home to than a messy one. Although it might seem like a lot of work for nothing, you really will find it much nicer when you can pull back your duvet and sheets and snuggle in for a good night’s sleep.
