Bedroom Cleaning Tips: Remove the curtains.
Window coverings accumulate dust and pet hair. Remove the curtains and draperies and wash or clean them according to the label’s instructions.
Bedroom Cleaning Tips: Strip the bed.
Remove all pillows, linens and covers from the bed. Launder bedclothes according to the label’s directions. If applicable, use this opportunity to switch from heavy winter bedding to lighter spring bedding.
If the pillows are not machine washable, place them in a large garbage bag with a handful of baking soda. Twist the bag closed and shake it thoroughly. This will deodorize and refresh the pillows without damaging the material. Remove the pillows and fluff into shape.
Flip the mattress and rotate it clockwise to spread wear evenly. If it is a pillow top mattress, skip the flip and rotate it clockwise to ensure even wear.
Bedroom Cleaning Tips: Dust everything from top to bottom.
Dusting from top to bottom keeps dust from settling on clean items. Begin by the broom to remove cobwebs from the ceiling.

Use a damp cloth or a duster, such as the Pledge Multi Surface Duster to dust bureaus, picture frames and all applicable surfaces in the bedroom.
