Lenten Cleaning: In the Bedroom...
I try to deep clean our home as much as I am able during the weeks when we fast. I find that it is really wonderful to enjoy having everything clean and organized for the Great Feasts of the year. I plan on breaking my cleaning up by cleaning one room or area each week of the Fast (there are seven weeks). For the second week of Lent, I focused on the bedrooms. I also tried to keep up with my regular daily cleaning and laundry routines as much as possible so that the bedrooms weren't spotless, while the rest of the house looked like a war zone with naked children running around!
Clean out the dressers in your bedroom. Wash the mirror and dust everything.
Tuesday's challenge is to clean out the bedside tables in your bedroom(s), clean under the bed, and (if needed) flip and rotate the mattress(es).
Wash curtains, blinds, and windows.
Clean the closet.
Friday Finish cleaning the closet.
Dust and clean any picture frames, decorations, and surfaces you missed during the week. Clean the ceiling fan (if you have one!). Dust the baseboards and check for spiderwebs in the corners of the room.
