This post is all about keeping your dorm room clean.
Trust and believe I understand that college is a hectic time. Between studying, working, and hanging out with friends you barely have time to breathe.
I know time goes by clothes are piling up, dishes are not washed, and papers are all over your desk. My best advice to keep a clean and tidy dorm room is to stick to a dorm room cleaning schedule.
You would be surprised how quickly dirt and bacteria could build up (GROSS!). I created a whole post all about 12 disgusting things in your dorm room that you have to clean immediately. I broke down the cleaning schedule in different sections on when and what to clean.
Here are a couple of tips on how to keep your room clean with this dorm room cleaning schedule!
Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule:
Daily Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule:
Make your bed
Your bed is the main focus of your room. You would be surprised how much cleaner your dorm room would look by making your bed. I know it’s one task a lot of us dread to do.
But if you make your bed it will prevent you from going back to sleep and get started for the day. Making your bed daily will make your room 100 times better.

Wash your dishes
I have to admit growing up I was not the biggest fan of washing the dishes. My tip is to wash immediately after you eat so you can just get it over with.
I know we all have said “I’ll wash it later” but never actually do. Your dirty dishes will just begin to pile up and start to smell attracting unwanted visitors. Just wash them.
Put away your stuff
Every night before you go to bed try to tidy up your room. Put things back where they belong. This advice will help you avoid a huge mess.
Weekly Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule:
Vacuuming your rug and sweeping the floor is such an essential to keeping your room clean. You’d be surprised by how much dirt you bring from the outside every day.
I found this vacuum off of Amazon and it does a great job and it’s small to store in your dorm room closet.
Take out trash
Taking out the trash is such a tedious task in my opinion. I know it sounds completely lazy, but I just don’t feel like it.
But it is something that has to get done unless it starts to smell. Also, one tip is to spray disinfecting spray like Lysol to keep your trash can smelling fresh.
Clean your bathroom
Cleaning your bathroom weekly is important because even if it’s your personal bathroom or sharing it that is where you clean yourself off and that dirt has been piling up for the past week.
Take the time to clean up the three major hotspots: shower, toilet, and the sink. One of my favorite bathroom essential is Poo Pourri (I promise you’ll thank me later).

Wash your sheets
Wash your sheets at the end of the month whenever you decided to do your laundry. Take the time to wash your sheets, pillowcases, and comforter to keep our bed fresh and clean.
Sell or Donate your clothes
If you have clothes that no longer fit you or you do not wear them anymore donate it to your local Goodwill or sell them on sites like Poshmark. This way you will have space for new clothes.
