Ah, springtime! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and a distinct sense of happiness is in the air. While most people associate spring cleaning with tidying up their homes, it’s important not to neglect your bedroom. Our bedrooms, where we spend a significant portion of our lives, deserve just as much attention and care. We’ve got some tips to help you spring clean your bedroom so you can achieve healthy and restful sleep.
Tackle the clutter
First and foremost, tackle the clutter. Take a look at your bedroom and identify any items that scream “unsightly mess.” We all have that one chair that accumulates clothes at an alarmingly fast pace. It’s time to show that chair who’s boss! Sort through your clothing, and if you find anything you haven’t worn in ages or that doesn’t spark joy, bid it farewell. Donate or recycle those items, and relish in the newfound space and serenity.
Did you know that changing your bedding regularly not only keeps your bedroom feeling fresh but also contributes to a healthier sleep environment? Make sure you toss those sheets into the washing machine, fluff up those pillows, and embrace the clean, crisp goodness that awaits you. This might also be a good time to update your sheets if your current ones are getting a bit old and worn. Look for sheets that are made from natural fibres like cotton, Tencel or bamboo, that will allow your bedding to ‘breathe’. This is important for moisture management and temperature control and keeps your bed hygienic.
Consider the temperature at which you wash your bed linen. While you may be a fan of cold water washes, it’s a good idea to wash you bed linen at 60 degrees celcius to ensure that all sweat, dust, dander and other nasties are killed and removed. Give your sheets plenty of room in the machine by not jamming too many into one wash.
Mattress and Pillow Care
For your Wenatex system, it’s a great time to wash your pillow and mattress covers. They can be washed at up to 60 degrees Celsius. This is especially important for those who suffer from allergies and asthma. Your bed has the perfect environment for bacteria, mould, fungus and dust mites to call home – it’s dark, warm and moist. Washing your pillows and mattress covers during your spring clean will keep everything clean and contribute to getting healthy sleep.
If you are washing your bedding covers, it’s also a great idea to air the mattress core and place your herbal inlay into the sun. You’ll rejuvenate the herbs in the inlay with the sun providing a great natural sanitiser and allow your mattress core to get some good air circulation, so it remains clean and fresh.
It’s amazing how much dust accumulates in our bedrooms. We are shedding skin and hair follicles as we sleep, which contributes to the dust in our bedrooms. As part of your bedroom spring clean, give everything a good dusting, include ceiling fans, bedside tables and under the bed.
Make your bedroom a sleep sanctuary
Why not sprinkle a touch of personal happiness into your sleep haven. Whether it’s adding some vibrant throw pillows, hanging a cheerful piece of artwork, or incorporating a calming scent with a lavender sachet or aromatherapy diffuser, make your bedroom a reflection of your unique personality and a space where you can relax and rest.
It’s amazing how a little cleaning and organizing can transform a space and uplift your spirits. So, go ahead, dive into your newly cleaned sanctuary, and relish in the peace and tranquility it brings.
Remember, a clean bedroom equals a happy mind and a healthy night’s sleep. And we all know a good night’s sleep is the foundation for a happy and healthy life.
