It's time to clean your room, so do a good job in the shortest amount of time and get your parents off your back.

Step 1: Identify specific objects
Identify specific things to be done or objects to be organized – books, trash, clothing items – and clean by category.

Play music while you clean. It'll make time pass more quickly.

Step 2: Focus on one area
Focus on one area at a time and clean it, before moving to the next one. Start in one corner and move out from there.

Step 3: Set time limits
Set time limits and make a game out of it, betting on yourself.

Step 4: Post visual reference
Post a to-do list on the door, making a visual reference that targets tasks so you don’t forget anything. This confers a sense of achievement.

Step 5: Make bed
Remove your bedding and put on new sheets. Get the dirty dishes, old socks, and any dead things out from underneath.

Step 6: Sort clothes
Separate dirty clothes from clean, which should be folded and put away or hung up.

Step 7: Dust and vacuum
Dust all surfaces and vacuum the carpet. Spray some air freshener. Done.

Did You Know?
A "Class 100" clean room contains no more than 100 particles larger that 0.5 microns per cubic foot of air.
