Are you looking for spring cleaning tips? If you’ve been following along with my blog, you may remember that I have been decluttering and cleaning the house for spring.  Right now, I am focusing on decluttering my teenage son’s room. Since he is a collector of many things from trading cards to magazines, his room always has a cluttered and disorganized look.  As I worked my way through the chaos in his room, here are a few spring cleaning tips I found helpful.

Spring Cleaning Tips to Get Bedrooms Organized

Spring Cleaning Tips

These spring cleaning tips and tricks can be applied to almost any room of your house. I try to spring clean room by room so that I’m not overwhelmed. I try to keep up on the regular cleaning like dusting and vacuuming so that spring cleaning can really be to deep clean rooms. If you’re wondering when to start spring cleaning, there really isn’t any set rule. I try to begin when the weather is warm enough to open the windows to air out each room.

Work from the top down

Vacuum up cobwebs, dust on top of the door jam, clear off top shelves.  If you start at the top and work down, finishing with vacuuming the floor, you will get all the dust that may float down from above.

Divide and conquer

If you have a lot of clutter, separate it by type.  I made stacks of papers, piles of different types of magazines, piles of school supplies, and stacks of blankets.  As each type of pile was created, I could handle it all at once. I stored the magazines and trading cards in their own box after I separated them.

Take notes

As I worked through his room, I took notes on what I needed to replace. I noticed his lamp shade was dingy and that his comforter was somehow leaking feathers everywhere. I will replace both of those. A duvet cover can really help keep your comforter stay clean.

Wipe everything down

As I organized his bookshelf and bureau, I took a moment to wipe everything down to remove sticky spots and dust. I like to use homemade cleaners. I have an orange based cleaner and one with tea tree oil to kill germs. Don’t forget to wash the windows and take the curtains down to be washed as well. I use a homemade Febreze on things that I cannot wash.

Eliminate clothes that are too small

I took a few minutes to go through my son’s bureau and remove anything that was too small or too worn to wear. He’d wear the same torn t-shirt every day if I gave him the chance. If you are short on space, pack away off-season clothes and bedding until next year.

I hope that these spring cleaning tips will help make the process a little bit less stressful for you this year. Do you have any that really help you?

  1. I had a good laugh about cleaning out clothing that doesn't fit or is too worn. My son had a favorite long sleeved t-shirt, it was designed to look like a layer top. When the sleeves got too short, I cut the 2nd layer out - transforming it into a short sleeved shirt for spring/summer. He wore it all the time. When the fall came around he asked me to put the sleeves back on! Poor kid, at 3 years old he already has a preference of what he wants to wear! 
  2. Great tips, Ellen. I generally don't go in that order, there's a method to my madness but for the most part I'm pretty satisfied with the way things look when I', all done!

    Great tips! I always ask first before I throw anything away! Thanks for sharing!
  4. Thanks for these tips! I went through my kids clothes last month and got rid of 5 big boxes of stuff they had grown out of! It is amazing how fast their closets get cluttered.

  6. We have a few different magazine collections. I need to get some boxes like these to store them! Also, I like the divide and conquer idea. I sort all the clutter when I clean so that it's easier to organize and store.
  7. We are Spring cleaning since we are packing up to move. That is about the only good thing about moving...cleaning and purging and getting organized! These boxes would come in so handy right now.
