Light at the end of the tunnel

Once you have begun your spring cleaning project you will eventually tackle the children’s bedrooms and play area. So let’s get to the specifics…

Start with bedding

  • Take all blankets, sheets, and pillowcases off the bed and run them through the laundry.
  • Vacuum the mattress and under the bed.
  • Vacuum the pillows or buy new ones.
  • Once you have completely cleaned and dusted the room, you can make the bed as the last step.

Dust the room

  • Dust the entire room, starting with the ceiling fans, and work your way down.
  • Make sure you dust door trim, doorknobs, windows, window sills, blinds, photo frames, and furniture.
  • It is safer and easier to use vacuum extensions than climbing ladders for the higher areas.

Organize and clean toys

  • Pick up all the toys and those that are washable can be placed in a tub of soapy water and scrubbed.
  • Metal and plastic toys that will be damaged by water can be cleaned with a moist towel or disinfectant wipe.

Set out 3 boxes labeled:

  1. Garbage
  2. Donate
  3. Keep

Get the kids involved

Allowing your kids to make decisions regarding the spring cleaning of their room is probably the best way to help them take ownership and feel responsible for their area and their possessions. Standing in the doorway giving orders, or telling them to “just start cleaning”, is certainly counter-productive, give them options.
