When it comes to cleaning your bedroom, the bed is probably the one one that should get the most of your attention.
As the bedroom is a private space, full of personal items, cleaning it can be a daunting task, as you may have a hard time deciding what to start with.
Relax! We are here to help you. This article explains you the essentials of bedroom furniture cleaning, so that you can schedule all these chores accordingly.
How To Prepare For Cleaning Your Bedroom Furniture
First of all, you’ll need to make sure you have all necessary supplies. A vacuum cleaner, a couple of microfiber cloths, a duster and a spray bottle of water would be enough to help you get by. How hard would it be to gather all these things?
Now let’s proceed with the cleaning.
The main reason why bookshelves become dust magnets is that most people overlook them. When cleaning your bookshelves, make sure you start from the top and you work your way to the bottom. This will help you prevent falling dust from settling on already cleaned shelves.
To start with, remove all books from the top shelf. If there’s a lot of dust, start by wiping it off with a duster and then use a damp microfiber cloth to remove remaining traces. If there’s barely any dust on your shelves, you can skip the duster and wipe it off directly with the damp cloth. Rinse the microfiber cloth multiple times throughout this process.
After you’re done with cleaning your bookshelves, use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust that may have fallen on the floor.
Cleaning Dust And Spills From Desks
The desk may be the most difficult to clean, particularly if you snack or drink your coffee while staring at your computer. Even if you do have this habit, you’ll still be able to clean your desk without problems.
Clear everything off your desk. Stack all these things in the chair or directly on the floor. Get a duster or a dry microfiber cloth and wipe the surface of the desk. Try to remove stubborn stains and tough spills with a little water or with special cleaning products that suit your desk’s material. Once you’re done with cleaning the top, wipe down the sides and the legs of the furniture. Next, wipe down the desk chair with a microfiber cloth. If you have a fabric chair, use your vacuum with a special attachment to remove any grit, crumbs or hairs.
Cleaning Nightstands And Dressers
In order to clean these furniture pieces, you’ll need to remove all items from them. Place all these items on the floor or on the bed. Next, wipe down all surfaces with a dry microfiber cloth, making sure you don’t forget the sides and the legs. Scrub a little harder to remove difficult stains and traces, if any.
