Whether you are the kind of mom who leaves the door shut and lets them fend for themselves or who keeps a tight reign over how tidy the kids must keep their rooms, the kids’ bedroom in your home is a job you will have to eventually tackle. There are certain messes and problems that just seem to always show up in these spots, so here are some tips to deal with them.

Dried Boogers

No one wants to admit that their kid does it, but most kids will pick their noses at some point. If you find a stash of dried nasties in your kids’ room, you want a quick and simple way to remove them before you gag. To remove them, take a warm, damp washcloth, and lay it over the spot. Leave it there for a few minutes, then the goop should wipe right off with another damp washcloth. You will not have to touch it at all with your own hands!

Dealing with Clutter

Clutter in kids rooms can get out of hand very quickly. To combat clutter, make sure there are plenty of shelves so toys and books are off of the floor at all times. Use hooks and pegs in areas that kids can reach to give them a place to hang clothing they use regularly. Above all, teach them how to keep things neat and tidy, which may require you to do a little better job of this task on your own.

Spills on the Carpet

If you allow drinks or other liquids in your kids rooms, and sometimes even if you do not, spills will happen. Deal with the spill as quickly as possible to eliminate any staining. Remove any excess liquid, and then clean it with a carpet cleaner.

Remember, these kids’ bedroom cleaning tips will not make rooms stay magically clean, but they will help you do a better job of keeping tabs on the unique types of messes that relegate themselves to kids rooms.

these are nice tips in cleaning but I suggest it is also better to involve your kids in cleaning their room to foster accountability and responsibility for their surroundings while they are still young.
