How to properly clean and organize rooms?

I obviously took my time to research the topic but it's really difficult to find any useful information as it's only generalized videos on how to do that. I'm sure there are things lost to time or lesser known things which can make a huge difference in the cleanliness and the organization of rooms so this is why I created this thread. You can laugh all you want at me but I don't care. I'm sure there are harmful products you shouldn't use, techniques and less known issues that could arise so feel free to share any information you want.

    Mise en place and vinegar

    >move stuff to one side of room and consider if maybe it should just be thrown away
    >clean empty side of room
    >clean stuff as returning to clean side of room
    and once again consider if it should just be thrown away
    diluted white vinegar is multi purpose, diluted bleach works for most things, or just buy some multi purpose spray
    as for actual organizing there's multiple fields of thought there
    that's it

    Not sure the size of your endeavor but if it seems overwhelming just say you're going to clean a designated area per day. 30 minutes a day adds up quick

      I have pretty severe adhd and cleanliness and organization has always been a problem for me bordering on hoarder tier

      I bought a house and swore to change and ive found just working on a specific thing that is currently dirty and bothering me really helps and often cascades into cleaning a lot more things and spending more time on actually cleaning rather than trying to tackle an entire room or something at once and just getting completely burnt out before i even start

        Go big to go small. Pick up some big plastic totes and just load them up haphazardly with all your stuff.
        Disassociate from the mess, imagine that it's someone else's stuff and you're disgusted with the way this person lives.
        >oh boo hoo I have ADHD!
        Guess what buddy... everybody does. Humans were not meant to toil on stupid shit, we were bred to run around a field and hunt for berries and rabbits. Your ADHD is your survival instincts trying to keep you alive and make sense of this world.
        Force yourself to stay on task. Get a marker and write a reminder on the back of your hand, set phone alarms.

    >To organize:
    Take everything out, go through it one by one and decide where everything should go. Do that Marie Kondo shit, does it spark joy?
    The level of "everything" depends on just how organized you want to be, this could include the furniture or just the stuff.
    If you do want to keep stuff, make sure it has a place and not just in a pile. Shelves, cabinets, bins.
    >To clean:
    Read the label. Don't make mustard gas.

    I went from a dusty tinderbox, to a clean and organized tech den. I can give you some tips:

    1. most important step of all, is throwing away all the crap you don't use. from old chargers, to bottle caps, if you haven't used it in the past 6 months, it goes in the trash bag. anything and everything that likes to sit without any immediate use does not belong in your room.
    2. categorize what's left, and pile related objects together (chargers and usb cables go together, books and paper, computer parts ..etc). accept the fact that some of these items do not belong in the room you're in, and think of better places to store the important items.
    3. you're encouraged to go through each pile and start throwing away MORE non-essential items.
    4. now grab a wet rag, sit down, and start detailing the dusty objects. you're going for shiny and new. dig into the crevices and take your time. It's going to pay off in the end. anything you've cleaned, should be moved outside the room you're working on.
    5- hopefully by the end you have nothing but skeleton furniture. clean the dirtiest areas first. it's best to use a vacuum. and really go to town around and behind the furniture, the bed, the wardrobes, tables. don't be scared to move crap around, it's less heavy now that we've moved stuff out of the way.
    6- bucket of water and a mob, do the floor. throw away the dirty water, re-fill the bucket with clean soapy water, and use a large towel to clean the walls. make sure the paint allows washing.
    7- re-arrange the furniture and clean the surfaces, as well as the legs of tables and such.
    8- move in your stuff and try to be smart about where you place things. if you have cables buy some velcro tape and hide them out of sight. have some hidden storage for stuff that looks a bit haywire.
    9- finally, seal the room, the windows shouldn't be opened, if air seeps through them, it's just a matter of time before the dust returns. so work on sealing those openings.
