3 Weeks to a Cleaner Home Day 9, Master Bedroom

Today I spent my cleaning time in our bedroom. There was a little clutter to clear out and put into its rightful home. Other items just needed to be straightened up. There was definitely some dusting that needed to be done on the headboard. I think it gets dusty so fast because we have our window open so much this time of year.

I also cleaned the vent in our bedroom. This was one of the assigned tasks in the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Series and I have been trying to clean each vent once a month since then.

Here is what I started with

and after cleaning

See how shiny my hardwood floors are? I used a mixture of vinegar with water and with a rag wiped down the floor along the grain and then dried them. After cleaning them like this the floors always feel so clean and soft under my feet. I am not sure why they feel soft, but I like it.



I will be working in our main bathroom. The bathroom that gets the most use. Here is my plan for tomorrow.

To do list

  1. Clean shower and sink
  2. Clean counter and toilet
  3. Clear clutter
  4. Organize under the sink
So did you do any cleaning today. Be sure to share with me in the comments and leave a link in the comments to a post if you have one.

  1. Looks great, Shelly! Your hardwood floors look so good, too. 🙂

    I did some basic cleaning today. The essentials. We woke up to ants this morning. No fun, but my husband took care of them for the most part. We’re still finding some stragglers. It’s the first time all summer that we’ve had ants, and I hope they LEAVE and don’t come back. I’m surprised they didn’t get in the house sooner, because of the constant crummy mess we usually have around our dining room table.

    My 3yo and 5yo sons and the baby’s cheerios require us to do our best to stay on top of keeping the floor clean, but we didn’t vacuum last night and woke up to ants. 🙁

    1. Oh I hate the ants. We have them invade every spring and this year they wanted to stick around a lot longer than usual but I think we have them out now. I hope you will be rid of yours soon. Yeast, sugar and Borax works great to get rid of them here. But make sure your little ones can’t get to it. You could also try 1/4 vinegar 3/4 water and a squirt of dish soap. I saw this formula at Home Jobs by Mom and it worked for her.
