Spring has sprung! And if you're like us, excited about the seasonal shift, this also means that the time has come when you're ready to roll up your sleeves and start clearing your home of all the clutter collected over your time spent in hibernation mode.
From ways to deep-clean and organize your closets to the kitchen and beyond, many resources are available to help you get started. But what about cleaning hacks geared toward helping you clean your bedroom so you can enjoy deep, quality sleep all season long? We've got just the thing.
Below, you’ll find some of our favorite super-simple hacks to help you keep your bedroom clean for better sleep.
Use a Pillow + Mattress Protector
While spring is an exciting time to get outside and watch the world bloom, it's also a time when allergies can be at their worst. Our recommendation? Add a pillow and mattress protector to your sleep space to help keep your allergies at bay as much as possible.
Investing in a mattress and pillow protectors can do wonders for keeping your bed free from dust mites, pet dander, moisture, mold, mildew, and other allergens that can disrupt your sleep.
Not only that, but the best protectors are always machine washable for easy cleaning and made from breathable materials clinically proven to keep out dust while still allowing air to circulate throughout your bedding (a big plus for the warm months ahead!).
Spot-Clean What You Can't Wash
If you have bedding that you can't toss in your washing machine (like a latex or memory foam pillow, for example), use baby wipes to spot-clean them instead.
Baby wipes are usually inexpensive compared to many of the mild soaps and detergents often recommended for spot-cleaning, plus they're gentle enough to use on delicate surfaces without leaving any residue behind.
Jump on the Bed
As silly as it may sound, this trick can do wonders for helping you keep your sleep space fresh. Once a month, hop up and down on your (undressed) mattress for about 10 seconds. This simple technique helps kick up any dirt or dust particles that may have settled over time so that you can vacuum them off easily afterward.
Plus, it's fun! And if you have kids at home, it's an easy way to get them involved in your spring-cleaning routine.
Diffuse an Air-Purifying Blend of Essential Oils
Essential oils are often considered great natural cleaners that can help rid the air of pollutants while filling your space with calming aromas to help you relax after a long day. We recommend using a diffuser to enjoy these therapeutic benefits while also freshening up your bedroom at the same time.
Bonus Tip: Thieves essential oil by Young Living is an excellent option for spring cleaning. Not only is it often used in natural, multipurpose cleaning products, but you can also add it to your diffuser to refresh the air in your bedroom in a snap.
Use the 30-Second Rule
We all know how challenging dust can be to maintain—especially in the spring and summer when pollen is often at its worst. To keep the surfaces in your bedroom from collecting excess dust, give the 30-second Rule a try whenever you're crunched for time.
It's so simple. All you need is 30 seconds to wipe away dust particles from the visible surfaces in your bedroom, like your nightstand, dresser, and blinds. Consider adding it to your morning or evening routine to help keep everything looking neat and dust-free throughout the week!
