When you signed up for this challenge, you knew it would take all you’ve got. Cleaning your house takes time and energy. And because it takes so long, many people are tempted to quit before they reach their goal. But, you didn’t.
Now that you are so close to the finish line, it is even more important that you don’t give up… not when you are sooo close to the finish line!
Today you will finish up with your bedroom. Sounds awesome, right? Let’s go…
Day 25: Deep Clean Bedroom Storage Units
So far you’ve cleaned the bedroom top to bottom – ceiling, walls, floors. You’ve also cleaned the bed, other furniture and the clothes cupboard/closet.
Today you will move on to the bedroom storage units – dresser tables, bedside tables, chest of drawers, bed storage, book shelves, entertainment units, bookshelves, display units etc. Yes, I know that not everybody has so much of furniture in their bedrooms. So, do whatever is applicable to you and leave the rest!
And please don’t look at the list as inspiration to add more furniture to you bedroom!
So, whatever you do, don’t get overwhelmed and work at your own pace. It doesn’t matter if you take a bit longer to complete the challenge.
Do whatever works for you – skip certain tasks, add others. But, just clean something!
Today’s Cleaning Plan

Weekly Cleaning Tasks: Surface clean the Bedroom and spend a little extra time deep cleaning
Monthly Deep Cleaning tasks
- Deep clean bedroom storage unitsEmpty the units and vacuum/dust the interiors to get rid of any dust or dirt and clean them with a suitable cleaner.Once the interiors are properly dry, replace the contents. Throw away any old or useless items and make a note of what needs to be re-stocked or replaced. This is also a good time to do some organization if you have the time.Once you are done cleaning the interiors, wipe down all exterior surfaces of the units.
TIP: Clean one unit at a time, but do not empty the entire unit all at one go. Work in small portions (one shelf/drawer at a time) so you can be sure to complete what you start.
Here are some storage units that you might have in your bedroom. Don’t let the list overwhelm you. I’ve just put down whatever I could think of. You might not have all these items in your bedroom. Clean whichever you do and skip the rest.
- The dresser unit
- Bedside tables
- Under the bed storage
- Display units/Showcases
- Book shelves
- Entertainment Unit
- Other cupboards, cabinets and open shelves
Tips to remember during the 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge
- Before you begin, gather all the necessary tools and keep them ready. You could get yourself a cleaning caddy or just use a basket or box.
- Decide on a specific amount of time that you can/will spend cleaning and set a timer. Work as quickly as you can within this time and don’t get distracted. (Except if it’s an emergency of some kind!)
- Start cleaning from the top of the room and work your way down. This will prevent dust falling on surfaces that you have already cleaned.
- Work from one side of the room to the other side, in a systematic matter, so that you don’t miss any spots.
- When the timer goes off, stop working! You can catch up with what you have missed during your next cleaning session.
- Use checklists to track your progress and to ensure that you don’t miss out anything. Checklists are especially useful in instances where you cannot complete a task and need to reschedule it.
