Spring Cleaning ~ The Master Bedroom

I will be working on the main cleaning of the Master Bedroom today. If you’d like to make your own cleaning solutions, you can find my recipes here.

Here is how I clean my bedroom.

First I take everything out of the bedroom that doesn’t belong in there.  
Next, I ……

Clean off tables, organize drawers and storage containers that will stay in the room.

Fold up and hang up all clothing and put it away.

Take down pictures and put all the doo-dads in a box, take it out of the room for now.

Take up the rugs. Shake them out and wash them.

Put the curtains in to wash. If yours are not washable. you can take them down and shake them outside.

Sweep down the ceiling, walls, window frames and door frames. I use a soft tool made for this or pin a soft, old t-shirt or dishtowel over my broom and use that. Take care with textured ceilings.

After I’ve dusted, I’m ready to clean. I start with the walls and window frames and work from the bottom to the top so that the cleaning water doesn’t stain the walls as it drips. I wash down the walls, window and door frames then clean the baseboards.

Next, I give the floor a good sweep or vacuum.

Mop the floor.

Now I’m ready to clean mirrors, pictures, doo-dads and nic nacs.

I clean and polish all the wood furniture, next.

Return all the doo-dads, mirrors, pictures and nicnacs to their places.

Rehang the curtains.

Change the bed linens, make the bed.

Replace rugs.

That’s it! It takes me about an hour and a half to get it all done.
