Bedroom Spring Cleaning Checklist

Sweet dreams will certainly commence when you complete this checklist!

Check it all off and luxuriate in your spiffed-up bedroom! Bonus: When you finish, maybe get a new throw pillow or pretty sheets? You deserve it!

  1. Launder or dry-clean winter bedding and store.

    Ziploc® Space Bag® products are great for storing soft, off-season items and shrinking them down to maximize storage space.

  2. Clean window treatments.

    Weather permitting, dry your curtains outdoors. You’ll save energy and your curtains will smell fresh.

    Spots on colorfast material can be removed with Shout® On-The-Go Wipes.

  3. Wash mirrors and inside of windows.

    Use a microfiber cloth to avoid leaving linty residue.

  4. Vacuum and wipe walls and ceilings.

    Before washing walls, determine water resistance of all paint and wall coverings. Latex and oil-based paints are generally safe to wash.

    If your walls have a rough texture, use old nylon stockings instead of a sponge that could tear.

  5. Shampoo or steam-clean wall-to-wall carpets, area rugs and upholstery.

    If you have carpets, plus children and/or pets, you may want to invest in a home steam cleaner for more frequent cleanings. Otherwise, rent or borrow a steam cleaner.

  6. Clean shelves.

    Take books and accessories off shelves. Dust all surfaces.

  7. Shine and protect wood furniture.

    You may want to consider Pledge® Extra Moisturizing Furniture Spray to protect your wood furniture from harsh winter conditions that could cause it to dry out and crack.

  8. Reorganize closets. Store winter clothes and replace with warm weather clothes.

    Put your winter coats into a Ziploc® Space Bag® product and other bulky, wintry things like scarves and hats in a Ziploc® brand Big Bag or a Ziploc® brand Flexible Tote.

  9. Toss or give away unwanted items: books, toys, games, electronics, etc.

    Consider donating items to a shelter, hospital or church. Bring your kids along. They may feel better about giving away beloved toys and games if they see how much those items will be appreciated.
