Ok I'm a teenager and my room constantly gets dirty like right after I clean it. Do you have any tips of how to keep it clean?

Yes...everything has a place, put it there. It only takes a minute or two a day to keep it neat. It takes hours to plow through everything later.

What I do is every time you do something, clean a part of your room, and if all else fails, wait it out, and let your parents clean it(: lol or just stay out of your room(:

I'm always out at a friends house or at a party, or a soccer game. Which means I'm not at my room to make it messy. Try making plans and spend time at other places more often.

Try to keep things where they belong instead of keeping them in your bed or somewhere else.Believe me,I'm going through this and still can't keep it really clean. :/

Are you throwing everything in your closet? When you clean your room it shouldn't just magically get dirty again.

I have that problem. I know this isn't exactly a good solution but what I do is I throw everything on my desk and at the end of the week I find a place for it. Haha
I've tried giving everything a place but it's hard because my room's small (I don't know if you have that problem) and I run out of space. I used to have baskets under my bed where I'd put stuff. I think this would be a good solution for you.

Okay once you clean it, don't go into your room too much.

After you clean your room, invite people over like crushes or popular people and have them just somehow wander into your room and they say wow you have a clean room, and then every time you have your room dirty just a little bit, you have a rubber band and slap your self with it, that's how my friend did it.

Put away just 10 things per day. In a week, that's 70 things you've put away. This system works, but you have to do it every day. It takes about 5-10 minutes, so you are never overwhelmed with hours of cleaning. Try it for awhile. It works for me.

Clean it once. Then stay out of room...forever. Really? just look at it? is it clean or trashed and respond accordingly.
