March 30, 2016

Spring is here! As I write this post we are mid snow/rain/wind storm here in Toronto- silly Mother Nature;  it’s time to whip out your bikini, girl! Despite our current meteorological situation, the season of showers, flowers and serious cleaning has arrived.

Be ready for Spring with these 24 Natural Ways To Spring Clean Your Life. From your closet, to your kitchen, to your mind, you'll be ready for that sunshine!Just in case my parents are reading this, I want to put out a disclaimer that I am not always the neatest, and I do have a slight habit of letting my room get too messy. BUT with all that out in the open, I feel good about sharing my spring cleaning tips with you- after all, this Cinderella just did a major spring clean herself.

Turn on this playlist, put your hair in a messy bun, grab those garbage bags, it’s time to hit reset on all those resolutions you made in January and have already broken. Your house, closet, inbox, bank account and overall well-being will thank you!

    Thank you for great ideas, Davida!
    My wife tried to disinfect and deodorize the refrigerator as you mentioned in the article. And you know what? It really worked. She said it was much easier to clean sticky areas and it smelled nice afterwards. Never ever would I guess that a natural product can work like this

    I love making my own cleaners and other household products using basic ingredients I can find in my pantry and some of my favorite essential products. Pinned! I love all of your ideas. Thank you!

    Nice links! I try to clean with lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda when I can; frankly, I thin it sometimes works just as well.
    I definitely did some deep cleaning in the fridge today. Thought I’d do the whole kitchen–hahahaha. One thing at a time.

    Thank you for sharing this!! I seriously need to start meditating before bed, so i am going to take a look at that article. And I too am all about home remedies for both my face and house cleaning rather than getting store bought stuff.

    This is such an awesome round-up! I can’t wait to try many of these things. I also try to do a deep clean of my washer, dishwasher, garbage disposal, etc. around this time. I sprinkle baking soda and white vinegar into the machine, let it run 1 cycle with hot water, and air dry. Works like a charm!

    I would love to master the capsule wardrobe. It’s really hard to do in my profession because my “everyday” clothes (jeans & t-shirt) are basically the opposite of my work clothes (suits, suit skirts, blouses, blazers, etc.). I think I just need 1 capsule for each : )

    My goals are to definitely clean out my mind–my stress and obsessive tendencies–as well as my clutter! I pre-occupy myself with everything and ANYTHING, which is so harmful for my life, body and well-being in the long run! These are wonderful links and tips that I will definitely check out!

      We oftentimes overlook the importance of clearing our minds in addition to our space. So happy to hear you’re prioritizing this!

      Me too! I switched to a capsule wardrobe last year and it has been a game changer for me. I’ll get working on a post if you’re interested!

    Awesome roundup Davida!! 🙂 I’m totally into spring cleaning, especially literal cleaning lol. Every year there’s a day where I just go on a cleaning rampage and try to clean my apartment from top to bottom. Then I start baking and cooking in the kitchen and we’re back to where we started hahaha

      ummmmm story of my life! Everytime I clean the cupboards I’m like “these will stay this way forever!” and then the next day I’ve turned them into a mess again!
