Your bedroom is a special place where you can unwind and relax. It’s also where you spend a third of your day. That makes it essential to keep the space feeling fresh and inviting. Here are some tips on how to clean bedroom furniture so you can keep it clutter-free and make the most of your bedroom.
Cleaning your bedroom furniture shouldn’t be difficult or time-consuming. You just need to know how. Follow these tips to help keep your bedroom organized and clean.
Clean Bookshelf dust
A dusty bookcase can make a room look untidy and unorganized. You might be tempted to ignore it, but it’s actually the perfect opportunity to clean it. Every shelf and space in the bookcase can be vacuumed. This will keep your bedroom organized and make it feel spacious.
Remove the dust from the desk
Furniture that’s used for school or work is often covered in crumbs and scraps. It might seem like a good idea to just leave it there, but it’ll only create a mess. Every surface of the desk should be wiped down with a dry cloth to remove any dust. Wiping the surface of the bookcase and other furniture will prevent the crumbs from getting bigger and more messy.
Clean the dresser and nightstand
You’ll spend a third of your day in bed, so it’s important to keep the bed and bedroom furniture around it as clean as possible. You can clean the dresser and nightstand in two steps. First, wipe down the top of them with a dry cloth to remove any dust. Then, vacuum the bottoms of the drawers and the inside of the drawers to remove any excess dust.
Dust the ceiling fan
The ceiling fans in many bedrooms are covered in dust. There’s no need to keep the fan on a dusty setting all the time. You can remove the dust by cleaning the blades of the fan with a vacuum. Using a vacuum with a crevice tool is the best way to get into the nooks and crannies of the ceiling fan. This will also help clean the walls behind the fan.
Clean the lamp
The lamp in the bedroom is another furniture piece that can easily get dust on it. To clean the lamp, first vacuum the floor around it to remove any excess dust. Then, use a dust cloth to gently dust the lamp to remove any larger pieces of dust.
Clean the mirror
The mirror in the bedroom is often overlooked. You might not realize how dirty it is until you see your reflection behind it. You can use a clean, soft cloth to wipe down the mirror. If your mirror has a frame, you can use a damp cloth to wipe down the frame too.
Refresh the bed and bedding
It’s important to clean the bedding in the bedroom at least once a year to keep it smelling fresh. Use a clean, dry cloth to dust the bed and top of the headboard. Then, use a dry cloth to wipe down the foot board, side table, and cabinet. You can also use a vacuum to remove any excess dust from the bedding and these other furniture pieces.
Clean the wooden floor
The wooden floors in your bedroom can easily get dirty. They’re also incredibly hard to keep clean. You can use a mop to remove any dirt or dust from the wooden floors. Or, you can use a vacuum with a crevice tool to get into the nooks and crannies of the hardwood floors. Take care not to damage the finish on the wooden floors when cleaning them.
Clean the carpet
The carpet in the bedroom can easily get dirty. It’s frequently the first piece of furniture that homeowners start to neglect. If you don’t clean the carpet often, it’ll likely have more dust on it than the wooden floors. Start the cleaning process by using a vacuum to remove the dirt from the carpet. Then, use a damp cloth to wipe down the furniture in the room. This is a good time to clean the windowsills, nightstand, and other furniture pieces that might get overlooked.
These are just a few tips for how to clean bedroom furniture. Follow these steps and your bedroom will be ready for guests in no time.
If you don’t have time to clean your bedroom furniture, then simply wiping down the surfaces with a damp cloth should do the trick. But if you have the time and energy, then these cleaning solutions and techniques will help your room feel brand new again.
