It seems as though the worst of winter is now behind us.
Now is a great time to sweep away winter! What can you do?
Open the windows! Get that stagnant winter air out of your house. If its cold out try opening just one or two windows at a time for 5 minutes or so. (This a great time to dust and get winter out of your house)
Deep clean your house! I love using Thieves House Hold cleaner for cleaning the house. Its great on just about every surface and it smells lovely without any toxic chemicals. Dust the base boards, ceiling fans, behind the refrigerator and other furniture and all those other places you often ignore or forget.
I also like to use my diffuser to purify the air especially with all the sickness that has gone around this winter. For my spring cleaning I use Purification. Purification is an essential oil blend that contains citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, melaleuca, lavendin (hybrid lavender), and myrtle. It’s a great blend to purify the air and can also be used to relieve bug bites or as a natural bug repellant. It helps combat fungus and mold too. If you don’t have a diffuser you can put a couple of drops of Purification in a spray bottle of water and mist into the air.
We’ve also had an ant problem this winter. Put 10 drops of purification in 4 oz of water and spray the ants directly as well as their entry points to keep them away.
I also love sprinkling a few drops of purification on the carpet with baking soda before vacuuming to freshen the floor space as well.
Clean out your closets! Start to put winter clothes away or to the back of your closet making room for spring clothes. Throw away anything you haven’t worn in awhile or that no longer fits.
Take inventory of your clutter! Donate or recycle things you aren’t using or are broken.
Nurture your house plants. Clear away any dried leaves, replenish the soil, compost any plants that may have died.
You know what they say, “A clean house, a clean mind!” Happy Spring Cleaning!
