Your bedroom can be one of the easiest rooms in your home to skip when cleaning day comes along...since you can basically just close the door and forget about it. The consequences of not cleaning your room can create huge problems with clutter, bacteria, or even worse...bugs. And the longer you wait, the longer you accumulate. Try using these simple tips to have your bedroom be germ free or orderly in no time!
Tip #1: Wash Your Sheets More Often
This has got to be the #1 TIP to remember when it comes to cleaning your room. Bacteria can build up on your sheets and especially your pillow cases, which can create oil buildup, which is what creates acne on your face. And NO ONE likes acne. Try to get into the routine of washing your sheets & pillow cases every two weeks to prevent bad skin days all together.
Tip #2: Dust Your Fan Blades
Most people go by the rule "out of sight, out of mind" for this one....don't be that person. Your fan can build up a hefty amount of dust and when you turn your fan on that is all being dispersed in your room...gross. Try to remind yourself to clean up yonder every month or so & you should be good to go (hey that rhymed).
Tip #3: Redecorate Every Once in a While
Having the same decorations in your room can become uninspiring to look at every single day. Try to change your decorations out every once in a while for a simple refresh, I mean how much longer can you bare to look at that Hannah Montana poster anyway?
Tip #4: Make Your Bed Everyday
It may be a small accomplishment in the morning, but it sets the tone for the day. Making your bed in the morning can encourage you to be more productive throughout your day. Plus- getting into a well made bed at night is a pretty damn good feeling.
Tip #5: Don't Eat in Your Room
I know, I know this is a tempting one. My favorite thing to do is lay in bed to watch Netflix and eat popcorn...but food inevitably gets EVERYWHERE. Having food crumbs all over your bedroom is a huge magnet for bugs, so if you don't want little critters running around in your room...I advice you not to eat in it.
Tip #6: Clean Under Your Bed
Again with the "out of sight, out of mind" concept...this tip applies as well. The space under your bed can build up dust and crumbs in a heartbeat, so you should try your best to vacuum under it every once in a while.
Tip #7: Health Benefits
Just like having your bed made, having your entire room clean can have some serious health benefits. When your bedroom becomes a peaceful and ordered place with no clutter around, you will feel less stressed and less distracted. This means you can spend some relaxing time before bed and go to sleep calmly...that sounds pretty nice.
