How to Clean Your Bedroom in Just 15 Minutes
Gather your supplies
First, gather your supplies. Gathering the supplies first thing will keep you from getting distracted while you clean your bedroom. Here’s what you need:
- A box or basket to put clutter in
- A trash bag for trash
- A vacuum cleaner or broom
- A cloth for dusting
- A hamper
Pick up dirty clothes
Right now all you need to be concerned with is gathering all the dirty clothes around the room and placing them in the hamper. Don’t worry about sorting them right now; that can be done at laundry time.
Gather clean clothes
Pick up any clean clothing that may be lying around the room on chairs or dressers. Fold them and put them away or hang them up in your closet. If there’s a significant amount of clothing, just fold them and place them on your bed after you make it. Remind yourself to put them away before bedtime.
Pick up the trash
Focus on obvious trash here. This isn’t the time to sort through old magazines or closets and drawers. Save those items for when you have more time to do a major decluttering.

Make the bed
I know sometimes we think that there’s no point in making the bed because we’re just going to get back in it in just a few hours anyway. Making the bed leaves a room looking less cluttered and more inviting. It helps keep things clean and instantly polishes a room. Doesn’t it feel great to cross something off your to-do list as soon as you wake up?
Gather misplaced items
Pick up all the items that belong in other rooms and put them in your box or basket. Don’t worry about sorting through them right now and taking them to their proper places. If you’re like me you’ll get distracted and start cleaning the other rooms. Stay focused on the bedroom for now.
I love this basket for carrying clutter items! It makes it so much easier to carry items from the room. And it’s super cute, too!
Straighten up surfaces
You may have items sitting around your room that belong in the bedroom but are out of place. Go ahead and straighten them now. If there are a lot of items scattered all over the room, place them in a basket and plan to put them in their proper place later. While you’re moving things around, dust off the surfaces.
Vacuum or Sweep
This is not the time to be moving furniture to sweep and/or vacuum. Give the room a quick sweep to remove surface dirt quickly. Vacuum the carpet or area rugs if you have any.
Don’t forget about the items you placed in your basket. If you have a few extra minutes put those items away now so that they do not become a huge pile of clutter. Take a minute to put the extra clothes away, too if you had any that you placed on your bed.
Put away supplies
After putting away your cleaning supplies take time to reflect on how clean your bedroom is and the feeling of accomplishment you have at the moment.
If you take the time to clean your bedroom like this often, you’ll be able to see the floor and find your bed. Your bedroom will become and stay your sanctuary.
