How to Clean Your Room in 10 Minutes

Posted by Cecile at Friday, July 03, 2009
Many people have problems with cleaning their room. To get the job done quickly, follow the steps below.

  1. Pick up as you go. As you start gathering the materials to clean and organize, pick up any items dropped on the floor or on the back of chairs as you walk by. Don’t bother putting them away in their right place just yet but instead pile them up in the right room. You’ll come back to them later, when time allows.
  2. Get into a routine. Instead of going over every single corner of a room before moving into the next, simply vacuum everything, then move to dusting and then to organizing.
  3. Start with the main rooms. If you’re having guests over and you’re trying to clean before they arrive, concentrate on the rooms they are most likely to see up and close, such as the living room, the kitchen and the bathroom. Leave bedrooms and other rooms until the end and clean them only if time allows.
  4. Vacuum. Nothing will give a better impression of a clean room that freshly-vacuumed rugs. Buy a perfumed vacuum powder to improve the overall air smell of the room as you clean. This will save you time in the long run. Don’t bother vacuuming the curtains or the upholstery. It will take too much time and it will pull you away from other, more important tasks.
  5. Dust the furniture, starting with anything that is dark wood, as dust shows more clearly on dark surfaces. Don’t use a dry rag; instead, buy wood cleaners or simply use a rag wet in warm water and a mild soap. Cleaning this way will prevent dust from flying around the room as you clean.
  6. Buy cleaning solutions that can be sprayed on and require no scrubbing. This way, you can spray them on and move on to clean somewhere else while you wait for the chemicals to work on a particular surface. Come around later and simply mop the dirt away.
  7. If you want to, spray some air freshener around the room. Done!
