Spring is just around the corner, and it's about time to begin doing that seasonal cleaning. You’re probably dreading it, I know I do, but there is something you can do to make it a bit better. Going green and natural can help you avoid the dangers that many chemicals in cleansers can bring into your home. If you want to get your home freshened up and looking clean, here are some wonderful spring cleaning tips that are all natural.

Tip #1 –

Get the Clean Smell the Natural Way

After having the house all closed up through the winter, you may want to find a way to make the house smell clean. Do not resort to using those air fresheners that end up putting chemicals into the air of your home. One of the best things you can do is to simply open windows. Doing this will bring in fresh air, get rid of impurities, and eliminate those stale odors.

Here is a great Homemade Air Freshener if you find opening the windows is just doing it for you.
To naturally get rid of odors, make a simple air freshener with 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, 3 drops essential oil (I like lavender), and pour in 2 cups of hot water. Mix well, pour into a spray bottle, and have fun!

Tip #2 – Hang Items Outside

Instead of throwing curtains and towels in the dryer with softener sheets, which also include chemicals, you can get a great smell by hanging them outside. The fresh air will dry them for you and make them smell great so when you bring them back inside, they’ll add to the clean smell of your home.

Tip #3 – Look for Natural Products

In some cases you may need more than just the products you can create at home to clean your house. Try looking for natural products that do not include chemicals in them. Often you’ll find that even your local supermarket has leaning towards products that are all natural and plant based so you can clean your home this spring without worrying about breathing in chemicals and furthering pollution and global warming.

Happy Cleaning
