In the days and weeks following the end of winter, spring cleaning becomes a priority among household and bedroom duties. The trouble is knowing where you should begin. In this article, you will find tips on how to spring clean the most important room of the house: your bedroom. From getting rid of unwanted belongings, to deep cleaning, to cheap cleaning products and practical advice, this article will set you on your way to making your bedroom the best room of the house.
The first thing you should do is go through your closet and bookshelves, separating the articles you like and use from the ones you are simply afraid to get rid of. Take out all the rejects and put them in a big plastic garbage bag. Keep the garbage bag in an inconspicuous corner of your house for a few days, giving time for second thoughts. Once you are comfortable with your selections, load the bag into your car and bring it to the nearest Goodwill. They will give you a tax-deductible slip that you can submit in your next tax return.
Then, it is time to do the actual cleaning. Pull all the furniture away from the wall so as to vacuum under and around it. Clean the baseboards. A solution of ammonia and water is a cheaper alternative to expensive cleaning products. Attack the windows with Windex or a solution of water and vinegar, scrubbing them until all the streaks are gone. Dust every piece of furniture, back to front and top to bottom. Throw all your linens into the wash, and put all your winter clothes into storage containers and store them in an out of-the-way, easily accessible, closet. Finally, open all of the windows to allow old, stagnant air to drift out and fresh, spring air to flood in.
