5 Steps to a Cleaner Bedroom! (Clean My Space)
We’ve done several articles on how to keep your room clean and how to clean your room over the years and for good reason, you guys asked for it but also having a clean bedroom is highly desirable. It helps you sleep better, helps you feel better, help you feel proud of your room. So this week, I’m gonna share with you five simple steps for you to take to maintain your bedroom and keep it nice and clean. Let’s go. Keeping your clothes off the floor is the first step in keeping your room nice and tidy. When you get home, I know you just want to take your clothes off and throw it on the floor and change it to your comfy PJs, but you’ve got to avoid every temptation. Take your clothing and do one of three things with it. Fold it, hang it up or if you need to throw it somewhere, throw it into the laundry hamper. I know I’ve talked about this before, but you know what, there’s no magic bullet. If you throw your clothes on the floor, messes attract messes, your floor is gonna become covered in clothes. Clean sheets are another way to keep your room smelling and feeling nice and clean. You might not think it so important but I will tell you why. When you’re sleeping at night, you sweat, you get rid of dead skin cells, and you release body oils, sounds great. That’s stuff all gets absorbed into your pillowcase, your flat sheet, your fitting sheet and that’s starting to smell. Not only that, if you had allergies, that stuff attracts dust mites. This is not a good situation. Make sure that you launder your sheets, once every week if you are an allergy or asthma sufferer or every couple of weeks for everybody else out there. Clean sheets definitely will help your room feel and look fresh and clean. Dedicate 10 to 20 minutes a week to clean your room. I know, you’re thinking, I got way better things to do than spend 10 to 20 minutes a week cleaning my room. But, trust me, once you get into the groove, it’s pretty easy. I’ve got a video on how to do it, I’ll link that down below, it pretty step by step. Once you start cleaning your room, you’ll realize, hey, it’s nice to have time to vacuum and dust, clean my mirrors, put little things away. The fruits of your labor are amazing. You know what, you can find something to do for 20 minutes like plays four of your favorite songs or listen to a quick podcast. Trust me, the time will fly and your room will look great. I know you’ve heard this saying before, “A place for everything and everything in its place” and nowhere is this truer than in your bedroom. If you’re anything like me, you bring drinks into your room, you bring food in there, sometimes you know, other things that just don’t generally belong into the bedroom. When I used to work in restaurants, we had a rule, it was called full hands. Basically, you have to have your hands full at all times. You were either clearing tables or running food. And it’s the exact same deal in the bedroom, every time you leave your room, pick up items that don’t belong there, take them out of the room, and put them where they belong. That way, everything can be in its place and there is indeed a place for everything. And on the topic of a place for everything and everything in its a place. I also wanna remind you that your bedroom is no place for clutter. I mean, we come in here to sleep, to relax, to calm down, to chill. There’s no way you can do that if your room is cluttered and full of stuff. So your surfaces should essentially be clean, it shouldn’t have too many items on them. My mom used to have this rule of we can only have three things, it was a little bit much Mom, but the truth is guys, even if you keep it to five things, it will have your space look visually much cleaner and tidy and make you feel better and more tranquil in your room. I know some of this stuff sounds overly simple, and I know I have shared it with you before but I don’t think you can hear this enough, especially if you’re someone that struggles with keeping your room clean. And on that note, I would love to know “What do you struggle with the most, when you’re trying to keep your room clean?” Let me know in the comments down below. I also wanna remind you, we have so many great articles and resources on cleaning your room, how to keep your room clean, how to de-clutter it, how to organize it, stuff for your drawers and closets.
