Mornings are getting lighter and there’s a bit more sunlight at the end of the day! It’s great, isn’t it? We’re saying goodbye to those cold and dark winter mornings and welcoming Spring with a bit of spring cleaning!
Read on to find out our super easy steps to deep clean your bedroom.
As the gentle warmth of spring fills the air, it’s the perfect time to rejuvenate your living space. Let’s face it, we’ve all had corners and crevices in our bedrooms that have been overlooked throughout the year. Spring cleaning not only clears away the dust and cobwebs but also renews your connection with your personal space. Read on for a step-by-step guide on how to revitalize your bedroom this spring.
Spring is a popular time for cleaning, and many people kick off their cleaning routines in September and November as the weather shifts. For some, it’s also the moment to swap out those cosy flannelette sheets for crisp cotton ones. But remember, you don’t have to wait for spring to deep clean your bedroom. Any time of the year is an excellent opportunity to enhance your comfort and ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.
Embarking on a spring cleaning adventure can be daunting, especially if you’re unsure about the necessary equipment. But don’t fret; we’ve got you covered with a list of essential supplies for a pristine bedroom:
Begin by tossing dirty laundry into the hamper and tidying up items on your bedside table and tallboy, if you have one. Don’t worry about making the bed just yet. Gather anything that doesn’t belong in your bedroom and place them in a designated box. Set aside a separate box or bag for items you no longer wish to keep, and consider labeling them to avoid confusion.
Lastly, don’t forget to address hidden clutter behind the bed, nightstand, or dresser by collecting and disposing of any rubbish.
After removing your window coverings, launder your curtains. Take down all pillows and bed sheets, leaving the mattress cover intact. Temporarily place any artwork and photographs from the walls on the bed.
Dust from top to bottom and left to right to avoid re-dusting. Use a long-handled duster for tall items and a moist microfiber cloth for reachable surfaces. Dust doorframes, walls, ceilings, window sills, window trim, and blinds (if you have them). Ensure the baseboards are clean, and dust picture frames and furniture before polishing them.
Spray glass cleaner onto a microfiber cloth to polish the fronts of images, then rehang them. For a streak-free shine on mirrors, interior windows, and glass surfaces, use glass cleaner with clean cloths. We recommend using the Al.ive Glass and Mirror Cleaner from their Home Cleaning Starter Kit for a crystal-clear clean.
Turn off your room’s lights and let them cool down. Remove lamp shades and use a clean towel and glass cleaner to clean the light bulbs. Wipe the lamp base and cord. A lint roller can help remove dust from lampshades.
Launder your mattress protector and clean the bed frame with a damp microfiber cloth. Vacuum the mattress with an upholstery attachment, rotating it as well. For more in-depth mattress cleaning tips, learn more here: https://www.sleepmaker.com.au/sleep-guide/how-to-clean-a-mattress/.
Also, don’t forget to vacuum under the bed and wash your doona or blanket.
If possible, move furniture to vacuum beneath and behind it. Use the crevice attachment to reach tight spots. Vacuum the rest of the floor with a floor attachment. If you have hardwood floors, use a homemade floor cleaner. Address carpet stains or consider steam cleaning if you have carpet or area rugs.
Conclude your bedroom spring cleaning by rehanging the curtains and making the bed with fresh linens. Deal with the boxes of items you set aside: take the donation box to your car, dispose of trash, and return misplaced items to their rightful rooms.
Before storing winter bed linens and blankets for the season, wash them. Dust furniture, vacuum, and rotate your mattress. If it’s time for a new mattress, consider our buying guide. For tips on how to clean your sheets – check out this SleepMaker blog.
Spring clean your wardrobe by sorting through your clothes and deciding what to keep, donate, or store.
Deep cleaning your bedroom can make a significant difference, offering a fresh, rejuvenated space that contributes to better rest. However, sometimes spring cleaning alone isn’t enough. To achieve the best night’s sleep, you may need to replace ageing bedroom essentials.
Pillows typically last only two to three years, while mattresses have a lifespan of seven to ten years. If you find your sleep quality has declined and it’s been a while since you replaced these items, consider investing in new ones.
If you’re in the market for a new mattress, SleepMaker offers a range of advanced comfort technologies to ensure a more supportive sleep experience. We manufacture various mattress models in Australia, categorized into Luxury, Performance, and Essentials.
