Your bedroom is probably the one place in your home that you can escape to for some peace and quiet. For most people, their bedroom represents a type of sanctuary or oasis of calm — at least it should, anyway. If you have a dirty, messy bedroom this is a recipe for restless sleep.
In essence, your bedroom is a representation of who you are and this has a direct impact on your quality of sleep. Now, bedroom cleaning might not be at the top of your priority list. But if you want to create a serene environment that invites better sleep, it’s way more important than you think.
Here are 5 simple cleaning tips to create a fresh, inviting environment.
1. Keep Your Bed Linen Fresh
Is there anything more comforting than a freshly made bed with freshly washed sheets? A great way to create an inviting space is by keeping your bed linen in constant rotation.
If you don’t want to change your comforter or duvet once a week, you can vacuum it a couple of times throughout the week. This is especially helpful if you allow pets onto your bed.
It’s also important to vacuum your mattress and its protective cover, and you should also wash your duvet inner at least once a month.
2. Don’t Forget to Wash Your Pillows
While we’re on the topic of your bed, because it’s just so central to the bedroom, a cleaning task to prioritize is washing your pillows. That includes the pillows you sleep on, as well as any decorative pillows.
You don’t have to wash them once a month, but every 3-5 months is a good idea. Always opt for a gentle or delicate wash when you pop them in the washing machine. And allow them to fully dry before putting them back into their pillowcases.
3. Skip Harsh Cleaning Products
Want to eliminate funky odors from your bedroom? It’s important to avoid using cleaning products with harsh smells. They tend to linger in the room and pollute the air you breathe overnight.
One of the most important cleaning products to avoid is furniture polish. If you want to keep your furniture clean and shiny, a microfiber cloth does the job just as brilliantly!
4. Minimize Open Surface Clutter
Surface clutter is an absolute magnet for dust. If you want to keep your room clean and the air fresh, try to keep your surface décor and accessories to a minimum.
This means cleaning up your nightstand and dresser — basically stripping back the things you keep out in the open. The less stuff you have crammed into your bedroom, the less stuffy it will feel.
5. Don’t Neglect Window Treatments
If there’s one area of the bedroom that’s often most neglected it’s window treatments and window sills. Your curtains and blinds are also a huge magnet for dust and all sorts of pollutants.
Make an effort to vacuum your curtains or drapes and dust blinds on a regular basis. Use a microfiber cloth for cleaning blinds.
