Follow this printable weekly bedroom cleaning checklist to get your bedroom truly clean. You’ll reduce reduce dust, banish clutter, and ensure this room in which you spend so much time is a comfortable retreat.
NOTE: Be sure to read through the steps below before printing the weekly bedroom cleaning checklist at the bottom of this article.
You will need:
Two bags or boxes
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.
