January Cure 2016 – Assignment 11

The Bedroom

Pick up your weekly flowers.

Give your bedroom a good, deep clean.

This should be a very thorough job. The aim is to rid the room of as much dust and potential allergens as possible. Here is a sample guideline deep clean plan that you can use as a checklist:

  • Pick up and put away all clothes, books and belongings
  • Declutter surfaces (remove change, jewelry, etc and put in proper places) Strip the bed
  • Launder all bedding, including mattress and pillow covers
  • Flip and/or rotate the mattress
  • Vacuum curtains with brush attachment and/or clean blinds
  • Clean windows and mirrors
  • Dust all surfaces and wipe down light switches, fixtures and ceiling fan
  • Push aside the bed, side tables and dressers and vacuum/clean under them
  • Remake the bed
  • Enjoy a sound sleep in your freshly cleaned room!

Sorry, the full title for this assignment was “Definitely Not the Sexiest Time You’ll Spend in the Bedroom This Year” so I thought I would lead with some sexy music. Then I realized I didn’t actually use the original title, because it is so long (that’s what she said) so my opening line would make no sense. Instead of deleting that line and pretending like none of this ever happened, I just keep typing, and typing, and typing…

Basically, I ain’t doing this. Sorry/not sorry. I did just flip my mattress last week, at least! Or rotate it, as we have a pillow top, so it can’t be “flipped” in the truest sense of the word. We’ve just got too much going on in the rest of the house for me to concern myself with the bedroom right now. At some point before LBW gets here we need to clean it up, but right now I want to focus on…pretty much every other room.

I did feel kind of bad for totally blowing this one off, though, so I decided to clean off our dresser. BOOM. And you’ll notice I bought a “flower”! We only have one window in our bedroom, so there is very little natural light that makes its way in. Plus Chairman is the self-proclaimed Destructor of All Plant Life and will gnaw on any leaves within his reach. So I got a fake plant from Hobby Lobby that was 50% off. As soon as I pulled it out of the bag he ran up to sniff it. NOT TODAY, KILLER OF PLANTS. Not today.

I also put this super cool lamp we’ve had for ages up there. It will eventually be on my desk…that may one day actually be finished and put in the bedroom… My friend Lauren bought me the adorable giraffe thingy. It may or may not end up in the nursery…we shall see. Oh, and I threw the humidifier that I bought last year over on the other side. We might use it again. I’m not sure that I noticed any improvement last year, but it didn’t hurt anything, either.
