Is your bedroom in need of a thorough cleaning?

It’s an easy room to overlook, especially if you only go there to sleep. But cleaning your bedroom is important.

Try these five unique cleaning hacks to improve the mood of your bedroom ASAP!

1. Vacuum High-Traffic Areas

Depending on how large your bedroom is, you may or may not need to vacuum it frequently.

Regardless, it’s still a good idea to vacuum every once in a while.

If you are pressed for time, focus on vacuuming the areas where you spend the most time in your bedroom.

For example:

If you have a desk in your bedroom, you might be in the habit of eating snacks there. There’s nothing wrong with that — everyone gets the munchies sometimes!

But, that probably means that you have crumbs around your desk. So you’ll have to vacuum them up before the ants find them!

Do the same for other high-traffic areas in your room, such as the doorway. A quick vacuum will help you remove any outside dirt and grime from your bedroom floor.

2. Use a Lint Roller to Dust

Lint rollers are excellent at removing annoying fuzzies and dog hair. But did you also know they serve other purposes as well?

It so happens that you can use a lint roller to dust the surfaces in your bedroom.

Yes, you read that correctly!

Forget vacuuming your shelves and nightstand. A lint roller is much more convenient!

Just brush your lint roller over the flat surfaces and lampshades in your bedroom and allow it to work its magic. It’s so easy!

As a bonus, you can try it on your blankets and sheets too if you’d like.

3. Clean Water Rings With Toothpaste or a Hairdryer

Do you have water rings on your bedside tables?

Keeping a glass of water or another drink next to your bed can result in rings on the surface.

There are a few surprising ways to remove those rings: toothpaste and olive oil!

Toothpaste

Here’s a truly unique cleaning hack:

To get rid of water rings, dab some white toothpaste on it. After letting it sit for a few minutes, gently rug the toothpaste off.

Tada - the rings are gone!

Olive Oil

Here’s another cool trick for removing water rings from wooden surfaces:

Start by using a hairdryer to “dry” the ring up.

If the ring is still visible after the water has dried, you can refresh it with olive oil. Simply dab a face cloth in olive oil and rub it around the ring in circular motions. The ring should disappear!

4. Freshen Up the Mattress

Obviously, you should wash your sheets, blankets, and pillowcases regularly. But mattresses themselves get dirty, too.

Here are a few ways to clean your mattress:

Baking Soda

One hack to try is to sprinkle some baking soda on the mattress. It will absorb any odors.

All you have to do is sprinkle it on your bed and let it sit for a few hours. After it’s done drawing out the musty smells, vacuum it up!

DIY Upholstery Cleaner

You can whip up an upholstery cleaning solution with a few household ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup of vinegar
  • ¾ cup of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of dish soap

Stir these ingredients in a bucket until you see suds. Then, use a soft brush or sponge to apply the upholstery cleaner to your bed.

Let it dry, and you’ll have a clean and fresh mattress!

5. Open the Windows to Air Out the Room

The easiest way to boost the mood of your room is to open the windows. It sounds simple, but it can do wonders to air out your interior!

Fans are great for cooling the place down and getting some airflow. But opening your windows will invite fresh air in and let the bad air out.

Try to open them for at least a few hours each day, if not more. You should notice a big difference in the way your bedroom smells.

Plus, fresh air can help you breathe easier day and night!

Bonus: Organize Your Closet

If you have some extra time in your schedule, why not use it to organize your closet?

I know — the closet is a huge burden, which is probably why you’ve been putting it off for so long. But nothing screams “Help me!” more than a messy closet filled with dirty clothes.

So, take an hour or so this weekend and get your closet in order. Take anything you no longer wear and get rid of it. Move your out-of-season clothes to the back of the closet, or put it in a storage tub until you need it.

And if you really want to organize like a pro, color-coordinate your clothing. Your bedroom will feel brand new!

Cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore. If you come up with a schedule and creative ways to get the job done, it’s a lot easier.

What’s nice about cleaning is that after you get done, you can relax and feel right at home. You’ll no doubt deserve it after your hard work!

After your bedroom is clean, make sure to keep it that way. And, who knows, you may even grow to enjoy spending time in there!
