Nah! (Though the weather is being stubborn!)
Detoxing in the Spring isn’t just about your body and your health, but where you live as well. This is one of the reasons people like to do Spring Cleaning – it gives you a fresh start on your home, with a clean slate, and organized life. Keep reading for some different ideas on cleaning and detoxing your home.
Welcome in the Fresh Air
The first way to help detox your home is by airing it out. It is still too chilly where I live to do this but I cannot wait to let some fresh air in my home. As soon as you get a good day open all of the windows to let in as much fresh air as you can. It will begin circulating throughout your home, helping it to be less stuffy, and feel clean and refreshed. This also improves the smell inside your home, especially if you have been using the heater all winter long. You may want to dust and clean up any pet hair before this happens or you may end up with little tornados of the two.
Another way to get cleaner air in your home in the spring is to change or replace air filters in your HVAC system and mobile units. Some of them will have air filters you wash, while others are disposable and need to be replaced. This includes in your heating and air conditioning unit, and portable units like fans, portable air conditioners, and dehumidifiers.
Bring in Fresh Flowers and Plants
Spring is the perfect time to start bringing in the outdoors. They also serve multiple purposes: they will make it beautiful, really get you into the spring spirit, smell great, and can help clean the air in your home. Some good plants and flowers for spring include lilies, daffodils, bergenia, primrose, and viola. Though there are many different varieties if you check your local nursery.
Declutter Your Home
With spring cleaning happening this time of year, you might want to start by decluttering your home. This is going to make it much easier when you get to actually deep cleaning your home. Decluttering isn’t just cleaning up messes and putting things away, but deciding on items you might not want or need anymore. Go through each room of your home and decide what to keep, what to throw away, and what to donate or give away. This is almost a daily thing at our house, it is amazing what the kids bring in!
Try Deep Cleaning
Deep cleaning is the next logical step, where you go beyond just cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming floors, and dusting furniture. Deep cleaning often includes washing the baseboard and trim, washing curtains and blinds, washing windows, and cleaning rooms that don’t get much attention, like the basement or garage. I would like to talk about the products you are using too. As you are cleaning up your house try and leave out cleaners with chemicals and things that tox it up again. I was introduced to a company by my sister and I love their products, they actually really get me excited about cleaning and really that’s not my thing. I don’t mind cleaning but excited would never be a word I would use until now….weird I know. The company is called H2O and I am going to make a video to show off those wares but until then if you want more information get in touch with me at Julie@juliesweber.com or go here and check it out:
You really need to see these products work to believe it, so keep your eyes open for the video J.
Have a great day!!
I am a wife and a mother of two, one boy one girl . They are the loves of my life! And also the reason I do what I do. I have to be able to keep up!
