Easy Steps for Cleaning the Bedroom
- Caldrea Linen Spray: Formulated with essential oils and purified water, these scented spritzers won't stain or leave water marks on even the most delicate linens. (So you can rest easy, 400-thread-count devotees.) The fragrances―sweet pea, lavender pine, basil-blue sage, and three others―are subtle and clean, not perfumy or antiseptic.
To buy: $12 for 32 ounces, caldrea.com.
- Starfiber Dusterator: With a 26-inch-long dusting sleeve and a telescoping handle that measures 59 inches when extended, the Dusterator is ideal for sweeping hardwood floors under beds (dust clings to its static-charged head). The head can also be bent at any point along its length, so it can be used to clean the tops of armoires and closet shelves.
To buy: $13 for pole and dust sleeve, amazon.com.
- Windex Clean and Shine Dry Microfiber Cloths: For spotless windows, swap run-of-the-mill paper towels for these specialty cloths. They work even more efficiently with glass spray―and either way, they won't leave streaks and lint behind.
To buy: $3.50 for 12 cloths, at drugstores.
