Spring is the perfect time to refresh and declutter your bedroom. We’ll show you how to effectively spring clean your bedroom with these helpful cleaning tips and tricks.
I don’t hide the fact that I just love a good spring clean. Going through all my home decluttering, giving rooms a thorough clean so that everything sparkles, putting everything back neat and looking good it really makes me happy.
You’ll need to set aside at least a morning or an afternoon to give the bedroom a thorough deep clean (maybe a full day, depending on the size and how much cleaning you need to do). And remember, if you’re doing kids bedrooms get them helping out to!
As always when doing a big spring clean, get the windows open, let the fresh air in, and turn the music up loud, it just makes cleaning so much more uplifting and enjoyable. I make spring cleaning part of my cleaning routine – and try to do a deep clean at the start of every season.
You’re going to love how clean the bedroom ends up, and how much brighter, lighter and fresher it feels to be in there!
