It’s not every day that you feel like giving your bedroom let alone your home a deep clean, even when you’re spending more time at home due to the COVID-19 lockdown. There are times when I know that my bedroom needs to be cleaned and tidied and yet, just the thought of spending almost an hour doing it makes me tired. Nevertheless, a quick cleaning routine done frequently will ensure that your bedroom is always clean and tidy and you don’t need to spend too long sprucing things up.

Below are a few things you can do that will help you get a clean, organised bedroom in just 20 minutes.

1. Open your windows and draw the curtains.

2. Make your bed.
