You will need:
Two bags or boxes
Microfiber cloths
An extension cleaning kit (optional)
Homemade furniture polish
Homemade glass cleaner
Fresh bed sheets and pillow cases
Vacuum cleaner with upholstery and crevice attachments
Homemade air freshener or a jar of air freshener gel (optional)

1. Start with a tidy bedroom using the daily cleaning routine. Skip making your bed.

2. Pick up all trash and put it in one of the bags or boxes. Set it by the bedroom door.

3. Gather the clutter that belongs elsewhere and put it in the second bag, also by the door.

4. Get dusting: Work the room from left to right, top to bottom, and dust the walls, window casings, furniture, and knickknacks. Use an extension dusting tool for high spots. Polish as you go if you like.

5. Polish the mirrors: Use a dry microfiber cloth and glass cleaner.

6. Do smudge patrol: Using the microfiber cloth and glass cleaner, wipe down light switches, door knobs and door jambs.

7. Strip the bed: Take used bed linens to the laundry room. Don’t make the bed yet.

8. Start vacuuming: Using the vacuum‘s upholstery attachment, vacuum the mattress while it’s bare. Also vacuum throw pillows and soft furniture. Switch to the crevice attachment and vacuum around the room where the floor meets the walls. Now, remove the attachment and vacuum the rest room.

9. Empty the trash: Dump the can into the bag by the door then line the trash trash can with a plastic grocery bag or paper towel.

10. Make the bed: In addition to fresh sheets and pillow cases, return the duvet or comforter and decorative pillows to the bed.

11. Finishing touches: Give the room a misting with air freshener if you like. Then take care of that bag of clutter which belongs elsewhere.

Honestly, I’m not a fan of bedroom cleaning day but it makes such a difference in the quality of my sleep since there’s less dust in the air to irritate my allergies. Plus, there’s just something about sleeping in a freshly made bed on “Clean Sheet Night”… or maybe I’m just extra tired after all that work.

Equipment I’ve Used To Do This:

    This is such a good reminder about allergies! My husband has horrible allergies, but his nightstand is always so covered with his special things that it often gets overlooked while cleaning. Now I feel bad. But you can bet we’ll have a clean room by tonight! Thanks, Katie!

      My nightstand gets the same way. One trick I’ve learned as an allergy sufferer: it’s worth getting those hypoallergenic tissues. Kleenex puts out SO much lint whenever you pull one out of the box! I didn’t realize how horrible they were until I started setting my Kindle (with a black cover) on my nightstand next to my tissues.

      One night I had a horrible sneezing attack and kept grabbing the Kleenex. Sure enough, the next morning my Kindle cover was covered in tissue lint! I kind of wonder if the makers of Kleenex don’t plan it that way: the more lint, the more you sneeze. The more you sneeze, the more Kleenex you use. And so on.
      Scott’s makes a GREAT hypoallergenic tissue that doesn’t shed the stuff. It’s helped immensely.

        Good point! Sigh! We go through a LOT of tissues around here. When his allergies are really bad, a box a day is no problem!

    Your tips are great, Katie. I am good at picking up clutter and doing light cleaning but I don’t often enough get to things like dusting the curtain rods and cleaning out the trash can until I do a deep cleaning (which I hate). Your methods are much better and I’m going to be incorporating into my own routine!

  3. NotQuiteSusie says

    I’m totally printing this out & saving it to do every week! My bedroom doesn’t get as much cleaning attention as it should, that’s for sure.

  4. says

    My mom sent me over here for your childrens bedroom cleaning list… and I love all your lists SO much that I’ve printed them all out to add to my “housewife journal.” I so wish this one had a great little printable as well.
