How many times have you looked at your messy room and wished that it would just clean itself? (me too…!)

Unfortunately, that’s not how the world works!

But don’t worry, in this step-by-step guide, I’ll show you how to clean your room fast!

How to Clean Your Room Fast?

1. Start with the bed

The first step to a clean room is to start with the bed. Make sure to strip the sheets and remake it with fresh ones. This will help you feel like you’re starting with a clean slate. Pro tip: Add a little bit of lavender oil to your pillowcase for extra relaxation while you sleep!

If you have a lot of stuff on your bed, take everything off and sort it into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. This will help you declutter your space and make cleaning much easier.

Don’t forget to vacuum or sweep under the bed! Dust bunnies love to hide there.

Finally, add a pop of color with some fresh pillows and a cozy blanket.

Now your bed is the perfect place to relax after a long day of cleaning!

2. Clean Up Your Desk Area

Your desk is probably one of the dirtiest places in your room. It’s full of dust, bits of paper, and who knows what else. So let’s start by giving it a good wipe down with a damp cloth.

Pay special attention to the keyboard and mouse – those are usually full of germs!

Once it’s all clean, organize your desk into different sections: school supplies, bills/documents, makeup, etc. This will help you keep track of everything and make cleaning much easier in the future.

3. Declutter Your Closet

Let’s be honest, most of us have way too many clothes. So it’s time to declutter your closet and get rid of anything you don’t wear anymore.

Start by taking everything out of your closet and sorting it into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. This will help you get rid of anything you don’t need and make space for the things you love.

Once you’ve decluttered your closet, give it a good vacuum or sweep. This will help get rid of any dust or dirt that’s accumulated over time.

Now put everything back in an organized way so you can easily find what you’re looking for. I like to organize my clothes by type (shirts, pants, dresses, etc) and then color. This makes getting ready in the morning a breeze!

Pro tip: Hang a mirror in your closet so you can see how your clothes look before you leave the house.

And that’s it! Now you have a clean and organized closet that’s easy to use.

You can also use this method for linen storage! Here are some ideas.

4. Organize Your Bookshelves

Bookshelves are another breeding ground for dust and dirt. So it’s time to give them a good cleaning!

Start by taking everything off the shelves and wiping them down with a damp cloth. This will help remove any dust or dirt that’s accumulated over time.

Once the shelves are clean, put everything back in an organized way. I like to organize my books by genre (fiction, non-fiction, textbooks, etc) and then alphabetically by author.

This makes finding what you’re looking for much easier! I personally do this, but now I significantly reduce the clutter in my room by going paperless with my Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. πŸ™‚

Pro tip: Use baskets or bins to store items like movies, games, or extra blankets. This will help keep your shelves looking neat and tidy. And it

5. Declutter Your Dresser Drawers

Dresser drawers are one of the main places where clothes tend to pile up. So it’s important to declutter them on a regular basis.

Start by taking everything out of the drawer and sorting it into three piles: keep, donate, and trash. This will help you get rid of anything you don’t need and make space for the things you love.

Once you’ve decluttered your dresser drawers, give them a good vacuum or sweep. This will help remove any dust or dirt that’s accumulated over time. And if they’re looking really bad, you can always line them with contact paper for an easy makeover!

Note that if you use vinyl flooring, please be careful to use the right type of vacuum, as the wrong one may scratch your flooring.

Pro tip: Use drawer dividers to keep things like socks, underwear, and tank tops organized. This will save you a lot of time when you’re trying to find something specific.

6. Make Your Bed

Making your bed may seem like a small task, but it can make a HUGE difference in the overall look of your room. So take the time to do it each morning!

Not only will this make your room look neater, but it will also help you feel more relaxed and put together throughout the day. Trust me, it’s worth the extra few minutes in the morning.

Pro tip: Use decorative pillows and throws to add some personality to your bed. This will make it look more inviting and inviting! And if you’re really short on time, just straighten up the covers and call it good. πŸ˜‰

7. Keep It Clean

The best way to keep your room looking clean and tidy is to develop a regular cleaning routine. This doesn’t mean you have to clean your room every day (unless you want to!). But it does mean taking the time to do a deep clean on a weekly basis.

Start by making a list of all the things you need to do: dusting, vacuuming, mopping, etc. Then set aside sometime each week to get it all done. I like to do my cleaning on Saturdays so I can relax and enjoy my weekends. But you can choose whatever day works best for you!

Pro tip: Invest in a few good-quality cleaning supplies so you can make quick work of dirt and grime. This will save you a lot of time in the long run!

Final Thoughts

As you can see, cleaning your room doesn’t have to be a huge chore! By following these simple steps, you can have a clean and organized space in no time.
