One of the ways that my housekeeping routine is successful is with weekly zone cleaning. Zone cleaning allows you to avoid needing to do a huge spring clean, while keeping your house mostly clean all of the time. Today I am sharing with you my master bedroom zone cleaning routine.
I would venture to say that the master bedroom is probably one of the most neglected rooms in your house. This is especially true if you’re a busy mom who just feels like she doesn’t have time to deal with it. I want to challenge you to make your master bedroom your personal retreat. Your bedroom should be a relaxing place for you and your spouse.
Master Bedroom Zone Cleaning
Let’s get started with cleaning our master bedrooms and turning it into a retreat!
Begin by decluttering the space. Get rid of everything in the room that doesn’t belong. For me, this is usually lots of kids’ toys and books. Our kids bring stuff in our room ALL.THE.TIME.
I put all of the kids’ stuff in a pile outside of our door and I had the kids come and put their things away.
Next, I tackled laundry overload. My room ends up being the catch-all for the folded laundry that hasn’t been put away. I took the extra time to put away all of that laundry.
Now that you have a clean slate to work with, it’s time to start cleaning.
When deep cleaning a room, always start at the top and work your way to the floor. So, remove any cobwebs. clean ceiling fans and light fixtures, wipe down walls if needed, clean all furniture, change bedding, vacuum/mop, and enjoy a fresh and clean bedroom.
If you have a master bathroom, now would be a really good time to give that room a deep cleaning, too. You can use my bathroom zone cleaning checklist to make sure you don’t miss anything in there, too!
Now, I have not mentioned the master closet. My master closet is currently in need of an organizational overhaul, but the same rules apply.
You’ll want to go into your master closet and declutter anything that you can get rid of. Clean your shelves, clean the floor, and put items back in some sort of organized fashion. I’m hoping I will be able to get in there and organize my master bedroom closet soon because it is driving me crazy!
