Hack Your Way to a Clean Bedroom

We spend 7 to 10 hours a night in our bedrooms, but because many of us don't inhabit them during the day, they can be the last room in the house to get a good cleaning. Looking to clean your bedroom with efficient ease? These simple hacks can help save time and clear dust and grime away from your sacred sleeping space.

Mattress cover. Stop stains (and potential bugs) from infiltrating your mattress by covering it with a waterproof cover. Your mattress will stay stain and bug-free.

Vodka spray. Did you know you can disinfect with vodka? Use a spray bottle to mist it over your mattress and other surfaces to kill bacteria. Make sure to let the solution dry before you put clean sheets on.

Sock solution. Have grimey or dusty blinds? Put an old (but clean) sock on your hand, dip it in a water/vinegar solution and run your fingers over your blinds. This also works for windowsills, desks, and dressers.

Better bedding storage. Tired of hunting down matching top and bottom sheets? Store bedding sets inside their matching pillowcases for an easy grab.

Clean TV screens. While sleep experts suggest not stashing a TV in your bedroom, many people still do. To clean dust off your screen, skip the pricey screen-cleaning cloths and rub a coffee filter over the surface.
