How to Help Your Kids Build Effective Cleaning Habits for Their Room

If you have kids, you know how difficult it can be to get them to clean their rooms. That’s why building effective cleaning habits now can help. It doesn’t have to be a laundry list of “to-do’s” to get them going. Keeping it simple can be most effective.

Here are some tips to get them going in the right direction:

Cleaning Tips to Help Your Kids

Put Clothes Away

It may sound simple, but how many times have you gone into your child’s room only to see clothes everywhere? It can be impossible to know what’s clean and what isn’t, right? By simply having them put their clean clothes away when they get them, you’ll see a world of difference. Keep a hamper or basket in their room for the dirty clothes so that there is no confusion. The little things make the biggest difference!

Encourage Them to Make Their Beds

While making the bed on school days can be a challenge, encourage your kids to at least try. If it’s too much of a struggle, making their beds on the weekends is doable. When the bed is made, the room feels cleaner and encourages clean habits.

Clear Any Dirty Dishes from the Room

Dirty dishes in a bedroom are a big no-no. They can attract all types of pests and just aren’t sanitary. Make it a rule that your child has to bring all dirty dishes to the kitchen when they’re done eating. If your child doesn’t follow this rule, then you may not want to allow them to eat in their rooms.

Keep Closets and Drawers Organized

If you have a tween or a teen, they can work to keep their closet and drawers organized. Even your little ones can do their part. Staying organized is the key to keeping things clean. If your child’s closet is messy, think about investing in a closet organizer. This will make it easier for them to keep different items in the right spots.

If it’s time to clean out the closet, look to see what doesn’t fit. This will clear out a lot of clutter and really help to keep things organized. You may choose to donate the clothes if they are still in decent condition.

Schedule a Big Clean-Out Day

Besides the occasional closet clean-out, schedule a big clean out-day once a season. This can be a family affair where everyone, including your children, cleans out their space. If you have a lot of items you’re getting rid of, you may want to consider renting a dumpster or scheduling a bulk trash pickup with Sweitzer Waste Removal.
