Here is my plan for deep cleaning the Master Bedroom.
–Iron bedskirt (already washed)
–Check to see if anything needs to be repaired or replaced
–Remove things from the room that don’t belong (desk, sewing machine, chairs)
–Plan supper for cleaning day
–Gather all supplies and put in a large basket
Supplies in large basket:
step stool, vacuum, cleaning cloth, dusting cloth, window cloth, Basic H (big bottle and 2 spray bottles), furniture polish and cloth, empty laundry basket, other empty basket, old toothbrush, old washcloth for window sills, big sheet to cover mattress, broom, big t-shirt to cover broom, towel to dry fan globes, 3 beach towels to dry blinds, scrub brush, magic eraser and rubber gloves

3. Remove everything from surfaces in bedroom. Put laundry in basket. Put everything else in other basket. Take down curtains (put outside room) and blinds (put in bathtub). Start a load of laundry and put curtains in car (to take to dry cleaners).
