A Disorganized Guy’s Ideas On Ways To Keep A Room Clean

By Dana Hartley

Aside from what commercials have led us to believe, there is no joy for most of us in cleaning a room. Sure the finished product is always very nice and you feel a sense of accomplishment after cleaning, but the process itself is not enjoyable for the majority of us.

Over time, I have gotten much better at the process and have figured out some tricks and tips along the way. Here are some of the best ways to keep a clean room.

Everyone should own a Dirt Devil or Dust Buster. They are inexpensive, don’t take up much space and are incredibly efficient at cleaning up any pile of dust. Plus, if you get a good one, they magically know not to suck up loose change.

Another way to clean up dirt is to purchase a compact sweeper, like a Swiffer WetJet. This is a great way to keep a clean and shiny floor if you don’t have room for a mop and bucket.

The most important way to keep your room clean is to get into a habit of making your bed in the morning. If your bed is made, it gives the rest of your room the appearance of being clean even if it is not.

Hang your shirts – Do you have a habit of throwing your nice shirts on a chair after you get home from a long day? I know I do. If you can make a habit of putting your shirts back in the closet, it will prevent a lot of clutter from forming.

Get some Windex – Maybe Windex does not solve all problems, but it certainly cleans windows! If you keep your windows clean, it will allow sunlight to shine through and give your room an extra boost of brightness.

Keep your shoes organized. I have a ton of shoes, and over time, they manage to make their way all over my room. One shoe will be under my bed while its counterpart is out in the living room. I have no idea how this happens, but if you get a shoe rack or make a concerted effort to keep them together, it will help reduce clutter.
