    Tidy up your room - how to say it differently?

    What is the common way of saying that you want to quickly tidy up your room?

    I *think* you can say that you want to give your room a quick.... and that's where I'm stuck. Any ideas?

    I would give it a quick once over.

    Or even: a quick tidy-up!

    I thought our American friends would have suggested pick up your room (which is not used at all in BE).
