Hi friends! I have to admit I am one of “those” people who gets a bit emotional taking down all my holiday decor. We did it this past week and suddenly our home feels so empty and way less cozy to me. To combat this sad feeling, I like to dive head first into spring cleaning—basically immediately in January! It’s the only thing I’ve found that helps me feel refreshed and motivated this time of year! Good news: We created a a downloadable PDF for you to print at home for your own cleaning motivation!
This post is sponsored by Schmidt’s. You may know them from their popular natural deodorants, but they make great cleaning products as well! They are naturally scented with essential oils and plant isolates, which is perfect because we avoid synthetic fragrances in our home. They can be purchased at Whole Foods.
I love the Citrus + Minerals scent. It’s not too strong or perfume-y. I am enjoying using the cleaning vinegar throughout my home, like on my quartz countertops, as well as the laundry detergent. I recently discovered that another brand I was using (thinking it was natural!) contained synthetic fragrance, so this was a good swap for us!
There are SO many spring cleaning tasks, but my absolute favorite is purging and donating. Do one room at a time and really take the time to evaluate each item. Do you use it? Do you love it? It’s such a great feeling to donate anything you’re not using!
Happy spring cleaning! xx. Elsie
