Cleaning In The Time Of Covid 19 – The Bedrooms

The Bedroom
The Bedroom

In numerous surveys done in the US, it was found that many people simply did not wash their bedding enough. Long ago it used to be weekly, now the average is approximately every 3 – 4 weeks. Now, if you are ill, once, you start feeling better, change those sheets so there is no chance of being re-infected. If you have a guest room that you normally share, try sleep distancing. If not place an extra pillow between you or sleep head to toe. Get ready to wash everything, including decorator pillows and curtains in hot water and use the dryer at the hottest setting to clean. Don’t forget your pillow, if it can’t be washed, you can still place it in the dryer to sanitize. Remove any dirty clothes to be washed too. You want everything to be really clean. Wipe all furniture, baseboards, doors, pictures, mirrors, lamps, shelving, books, magazines, light switches, doorknobs, and surfaces with a good cleaner. Declutter if needed. If you are well, you can take time to go through closets and drawers getting ready for spring. Move or pack away any winter clothing you will no longer be wearing. Vacuum the mattress and spray with a disinfectant like Lysol if you want. leave 10 minutes to air. Vacuum the bedroom including any blinds or shutters, finishing with a microfiber cloth and remake the bed. During Covid 19 bump up your washing schedule. The bonus will be cleaning out dust mites and dead skin cells making breathing easier. Sweet dreams.
