Classroom Note:

Cleaning And Arranging The Bedroom

Keeping our bedrooms clean and organized is very important. The following are five ways to arrange furniture in our bedrooms:

  1. Keep your bed away from the door to make the room look bigger.
  2. Place the study table near the window for natural light.
  3. Keep the toy chest at the foot of the bed for easy access.
  4. Arrange the bookshelf next to the study table to keep books within reach.
  5. Ensure there is enough walking space between furniture.

Materials used for cleaning the bedroom:

  1. Microfiber cloths – for dusting and wiping surfaces.
  2. Disinfectant sprays – to keep the surfaces germ-free.
  3. Dusters – for removing dust from corners and delicate items.
  4. Vacuum cleaner – for cleaning the floor and carpets.
  5. Mop and bucket – for cleaning hard floors.
