A clean bedroom without too much dust not only looks more attractive but is also better for health. Mites love dust and a staggering amount of mites is present in a dirty bed. Regularly changing the bed is, therefore, a must, especially for people who are sensitive to allergies. But the wardrobe also needs a good cleaning every now and then.
Maybe your own room is a war zone or that of your children. How do others do that? How do they keep their bedroom ‘spic and span’? Maybe you are a child and you want to surprise your parent (s) with a clean beautiful freshly tidy bedroom because they always say that it is such a stable in your bedroom.
- Remove the clutter under your mattress/bed. Also discard empty cans, candy packaging, ashes/cigarette butts, paper and food scraps. Return empty glasses and plates to the kitchen. It is a good idea to eat or drink only at the dining table/kitchen table and not in the bedroom. Put everything in a good place. Think of make-up, papers, hugs, books, collectables, pencils, clothing, pens, markers, CDs and toys. Do what you no longer want immediately. Do you walk from A to B? Always take something with you! Always put something back in its place.

Then dust with a duster and for the higher parts a feather duster. Think of the corners of the ceiling where cobwebs can sit. Also dust off the top of your wardrobe, window sills and photo frames.
Then all decrease with a damp microfibre cloth, for example, the working surface of your desk, window sills as well as both sides of the bedroom door. Be careful with wooden items that are not allowed to be wet. Change your bedding, so the duvet covers and the fitted sheet and the pillowcases. You can reverse your mattress if it is reversible. Then make the bed clean. If the bedding is still reasonably fresh then let it air out of the open window (watch out with children or pets that can fall out of the window/escape.) Look out with shaking off a duvet or blanket at a low window you can fall out).
- Vacuum the room, even under your bed. Do not vacuum around things, but move them (if they are not too heavy, do not force anything, think about your back).If you have a smooth floor such as laminate or tarpaulin; you can remove the floor with damp floor cloths and do not need to vacuum clean.
- Let your room ventilate (watch out with children or pets that can fall/escape from the window). A mopped floor will also dry faster. Take your window frames with a damp cloth. Flip your windows on the inside; you can just do this with a microfiber cloth/window cloth, a little drop of water or a dash of vinegar in a bucket of water and an old tea towel. Wet and dry. Do not forget your mirror (s). You can also clean them with a mirror cloth or old tea towel (without suds, do not use a kitchen sponge).
- Hang all the clothes in your wardrobe neatly. Use all hangers. Provide a sorting system. Put on clothes that you no longer want in the garment. Throw dirty clothes in the laundry basket. If necessary, do a laundry if possible. If you have a trash can, empty it, clean it inside and out and put a new waste bag in it. If you do not succeed in your opinion, do not hesitate to ask for help from a child, parent, family member or friend. Help with tidying up or tidying tips or maybe storage equipment such as baskets etc.
- If you want you can light a scented candle (make sure that your tidy room does not touch) or put potpourri or scented soaps in your wardrobe. Scented disposable wipes are also nice. Disinfect the mattress: One of the most contaminated parts of the room is just the mattress. This place of rest for the body usually absorbs the sweat that is released during the night and also accumulates a lot of dust.
- To disinfect it and make sure to fight mites and bacteria, simply make a simple product of bicarbonate and essential oils.
- ½ cup of baking soda (125 g)
- 10 drops of essential oil of eucalyptus, mint or tea tree
How to use?
- Prepare a mixture with the bicarbonate and any of the essential oils and sprinkle it all over the mattress.
- Let it rest for an hour and then vacuum and cover it again with its cover.
