Let’s Get Clean for Spring, Naturally!

Hi Divas! Today is the first day of Spring aren’t you happy?! I’m most definitely excited about the sunshine that is to come. Around this time of the year, most of us like to start spring cleaning, but who wants to spend tons of money on cleaning supplies? I don’t! I posted before ways to refresh and revamp your home here, but this time, I want to give you tips on getting the job done using items that you may already have on hand.

Did you know that household items like baking soda, white vinegar and lemon juice can be used to clean your home? Because of it’s slightly acidic nature, white vinegar is effective of against grease and soap scum. Baking soda can be use to deodorize and as a brightening abrasive. Lemon juice kills mold and mildew and leaves a fresh natural scent. For antifungal and antibacterial properties, essential oils such as lavender and eucalyptus are key ingredients.

So now that we know what these household items are good for, it is time to combine and put them to use.

For the Bathroom:

Mix to make a paste, using a brush scrub in circular motions, rinse and repeat if necessary

For the Kitchen:

Stir to make a paste, apply to stovetop, set overnight for tough stains, wipe away

Burnt  Pots and Pans

1 cup baking soda & 1 to 2 inches of water (depending on the size of the pot)
