12 Steps to Deep Clean the Bedroom

We've mentioned a bedroom cleanup before as a good weekend project, but since we are planning to do it ourselves tomorrow, we put together a checklist (that always seems to make the job go faster for us). After "cleansing" our closet, we think we can definitely knock out a bedroom deep clean in a few hours (just like Sarah did last weekend). If you are going to join in on the project, just put on some comfy clothes, turn up your favorite "cleaning" music and work your way through our not-so-daunting list of chores...you know you'll be happy you did. Checklist below:

The Bedroom Deep Clean, Step-by-Step:

1) Pick Up and Put Away All Clothes, Books, Belongings
