Everyone advises us to keep our surroundings clean, but the basics start right from your own room. It is important that you keep your room neat and clean so that you are not only able to find your things easily but it also ensures that there aren’t any kind of germs as they tend to harbor in areas that are cluttered with garbage and junk. If you wish to ensure utmost hygiene then you must make it a point to clean and organize your room regularly.

If you are lost as to how to begin cleaning your room, don’t fret! We are here to help you organize your room with some simple and easy to execute tips and tricks for cleaning your room. Read further to have a look at these tips and tricks and to include them in your daily routine:

  1. Our bedrooms tend to be littered with misplaced items. A sure shot way to organize it is by first piling up all your misplaced items either on the top of your dresser or on the bed. Now rummage through each item and place it according to its proper place. In case you feel it doesn’t belong in the room or you don’t need it anymore, simply throw it away instead of storing it and occupying space.
  2. It is very important to declutter your room, therefore get rid of any item that you don’t like or use. If it is occupying space for no apparent reason then it is best to lose these items. If it is something usable then you can probably share it with your family or friends. If not then you should throw it away or recycle it.
  3. In case you have a small room, rather than stuffing it with bulky pieces of furniture, make sure you buy multi-use furniture which will double up as storage space as well perform other functions. For example if it’s a children’s room you can use a bunk bed which has storage space arrangements so that it occupies less floor space and also gives you space for storing things.
  4. Designate one day every week as your ‘cleaning day’ where you do everything right from mopping, vacuuming and doing your sheets to laundry and other essentials. This will ensure that your house remains clean all the time.
  5. Always ensure that you have the right tools and apparatuses that are required to clean the home. Don’t buy substandard cleaning products as they will not clean the surface as it should and will in fact leave your home looking messy. It is best to use high quality cleaning products for this purpose.
  6. Collect all the items that you require for cleaning your room and take it along with you when you set out to clear your room. Don’t leave anything as later you may feel lazy and skip doing that part completely.
  7. Do the 3 waves system of cleaning which is essentially tidying the room, followed by cleaning and then doing the floors. In this manner you first clear away the garbage and any laundry that needs to be done followed by cleaning the gathered dust and stowing away things in their right places and lastly vacuuming or mopping.
  8. One of the essentials of a good room is a clean and clear closet. If your closet is haphazard, you will not be motivated to do any cleaning or tidying the home. Therefore always set aside a few minutes in a day for reorganizing your closet so that it looks neat and tidy and there is space to keep your laundry and other things after they are washed and clean.
  9. When you set out to clean your room, remember that dusting is a very important part as it will help you to get rid of the dirt and grime that settles on the stationary items in the room. Therefore you must do high and low dusting. You should note that when you dust, the dirt and dust falls from top to bottom. Therefore, start with high dusting and then dust the lower areas. Once that is in place you can start mopping and vacuuming the room.

Essentials of Cleaning- Tools and Products

Here are some of the important tools and products that are required while cleaning the room:

  • Microfiber cloth for dusting, polishing and cleaning
  • A glass cleaning cloth and newspapers for cleaning mirrors and glass

Take breaks in between so that you don’t feel tired at the end when everything is done. Enlisting help of someone could make your job easier and faster.
