Happy Clean Up Your Room day?!
In a world where anything is a reason to celebrate (we honestly don’t mind), Clean Up Your Room Day is actually quite underrated. You’ll be surprised how many of us walk around like everything is perfect, while secretly going back to a messy room we call home!
As obvious as it sounds to keep our rooms tidy and clean, the truth is far from obvious isn’t it? How hard can it be? Some might ask! Well, it’s not hard, but it’s definitely something that most people don’t want to do, unless you have OCD or maybe…..cleaning up is your fetish.
But for those of us who find it so hard to keep our rooms tidy and mess-free, as always, we’ve got you covered!
So let’s get to it shall we?
First, let’s assess your room.
- You can’t remember when the last time was that you (or anyone) cleaned your room
- You’ve got THE CHAIR in your room (you know, the chair where you keep piling up clothes which are not dirty enough for the laundry, but not clean enough to be in the wardrobe), or worse, the whole room your “THE CHAIR”!
- You have snack wrappers, half eaten cookies, chips crumbs, half empty cans of drinks, dirty plates and cups on your nightstand (or everywhere in the room).
- You can’t see the surface of your bed/desk/nightstand/floor, as they are covered by… (we don’t wanna know).
- When you enter your room, it smells like cheese, curry, something sour, or old socks (eww)
If any of the above statements is applicable to you, then it’s time to clean up.
Here are some tips to make cleaning up FUN.
- Make it a party
Call your BFFs or BF or GF (but not your frenemies) and make an event out of it. Prepare food and drinks outside the room for after cleaning. Put on your favorite playlist, do a little dance while you’re dusting, vacuuming and tidying up. Take lots of selfies, take before & after pictures. You’ll be amazed by the sense of achievement you feel when you end up with a spotless, cozy and beautiful room. Your friends may not want to leave! Ahem.
- Stop piling clothes on THE chair
Get a laundry hamper for you to put those clothes into, which are still clean enough for you to wear again, especially those which don’t need ironing.
- Donate, Recycle or Trash
If you haven’t worn or used something for a year, time to say goodbye. Don’t be a hoarder. Give things away, donate them to those someone who might need them, recycle them, or throw them away.
You may take it up to the next level and Konmari your room. Check her website or the Netflix series for tips.
- Hide clutter
Get storage boxes for small items such as wallets, keys, stationery, cables. Before shoving things under your bed, put them in boxes and label them, so that you won’t have to tear your room upside down whenever you are looking for something.
- Always put things back where they belong.
Sounds simple enough, but trust me when I tell you, this is the hardest part! Always put things back where they belong after using them, so you don’t have to keep misplacing them and looking for them. This is a hard habit to build, but you can start. Keep it up for 21 days and the habit is likely to stick.
- Kill them bacterias
Use good cleaning products like the Biosilver 22 Gel which can help you keep your home clean and germ-free with the gel’s SilverSol technology; it helps kill up to 99.99% of bacteria and viruses. Squirt a drop of BioSilver Gel onto your cleaning cloth to wipe surfaces – especially in the areas where you left half eaten food and drinks. Remember to clean your hands thoroughly and rub them with a drop of BioSilver 22 Gel too! It is better than hand sanitisers as it doesn’t contain alcohol – which has a drying effect on your skin. It’s unscented (won’t ruin your favourite perfume scent) and it’s not sticky or greasy.
Now that your room is spotless and gorgeous – it will make a fantastic background to your instagram selfies. Tag us @qnetofficial on pictures of your clean room!
