First and foremost, and if the weather permits, open up all of the windows in your RV to let some delicious fresh air circulate while you clean! Here are some more tips on how to keep your RV smelling fresh and clean.
Starting in the bedroom, strip and wash all bedding and rotate/flip the mattress. Vacuum the top of the mattress and around the bed area. Hang all pillows and blankets outside for a few hours to freshen them up and get rid of that stale feel and smell.
Dust, wipe, and vacuum all of the living and sleeping areas to get rid of dust and dirt that has built up in storage.
Clean and wipe down all surfaces in the kitchen. A great tip for cleaning an oven range is to scrub it with a water and baking soda paste. This method also works for cleaning the inside of an oven.
Remove old pantry items to make space and reduce the possibility of critters.
Clean the bathroom the same you would at home, but try to stay away from products containing bleach as it can degrade your sealant, possibly leading to leaks.
Remove and wipe down vent covers.
