I read somewhere that you spend a third of your life asleep, so why would you spend half your life in a filth pit. Bedrooms easily become dumping grounds as they are private spaces. I am very guilty of sticking EVERYTHING I don’t want guests to see in our bedroom and shutting the door.
To ensure you bedroom stays tidy, you need to work out your bedtime routine. Do you always dump your clothes in a pile on your side of the bed (cough…P…I am looking at you), do you always take a glass of water to bed and never bring down the glass, or do you take off your make-up with a wipe and then dump it on your floor till morning? We eat breakfast in bed most mornings (it is the only way I can prise P from his pillow) so I take that into consideration when I clean.
Each morning I air my bed by pulling the duvet right down. I don’t know if it works, but my granny did it, so I do it too. I also flip the pillows to ensure they wear evenly….again…I may just be crazy…
Set your timer! And then tornado!
Pull everything out from beneath your bed and hoover the dust bunnies from under there
Antibacterial your bedside table
Put any earrings, hair ties, grips and other rubbish you remove from your person back in their proper place
Take down your curtains and put them through the wash
Hoover your bed and headboard
Flip your mattress
Sort out your knicker drawer…chuck out anything that was white (and is now yellow/pink/grey) or with holes.
Dust your lampshade
Scrub your skirting boards
Tidy the bottom of your wardrobe
Sew any loose buttons back on clothes
Ahhhhhh….and then tomorrow is the weekend….. but never fear….15 minute tornado is here all weekend!
