Spring Cleaning – 6 Tips To A Cleaner, Healthier Home Environment

Springtime always motivates me to strive for a cleaner, healthier home environment.  There is something about the newness of the season that propels me to want to clean and purge. Spring cleaning is on!

On that first warm spring weekend, do you suddenly feel the urge to clean and organize your home…even if you don’t have the time?

When I think of spring, I think of a fresh start.  Making my home environment cleaner and healthier always helps my overall mental and physical wellness.

Cleaning your home can be daunting.  Where do you even start?

Here are six tips to help you achieve a cleaner, healthier home environment.

Overhaul Your Cleaning Supplies

If you are new to non-toxic cleaning, you will certainly want to throw out any old toxic cleaning supplies you used in the past.

To find excellent, non-toxic cleaning supplies, please check out my Amazon Store where you will find a category labeled “Non-Toxic Low-Toxic Living.”  Here I have listed all of my favorite cleaning supplies.

Whether you are trying to clean with less chemicals or just want a backup for when you run out of your usual cleaner, it’s a good idea to know how to make your own homemade cleaning solution.  One of my favorites is peroxide and water.  In my blog, Hydrogen Peroxide – My multipurpose Miracle Cleaner you will learn exactly how to make a hydrogen peroxide cleaning solution.

Declutter

Define what is worth keeping and release that which is keeping you down.

Figure out what connects you to your authentic self.  In this respect, it’s not just cleaning, it is personal growth.

Think Green When You Spring Clean

While the cleaning supplies you use are critical and should all be low or non-toxic, don’t forget about your tools.

For instance, your vacuum can make a big difference.  If you can, use a HEPA vacuum like the Miele Complete.

In addition, you will want a decent supply of biodegradable natural sponges.

Always remember to keep your hands protected.  I use these If You Care Household Gloves.

Work From Top To Bottom

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you can’t imagine how many times people get started by cleaning the floors or the countertops.  When cleaning, you really want to start at the top.

Cleaning the top and face of the cabinets before moving to the countertops prevents you from double duty.  By the time you get to the floors, you are essentially at the finish line and it is such a satisfying feeling.

Pro tip: don’t forget the ceiling fan

Walls And Windows Need Love

Often we forget about things like walls and windows, but they need love too.  Taking some peroxide and water to the walls will have them shining like a fresh coat of paint.

Don’t Forget About Your Air

Before you start bulk ordering tissues for the spring in anticipation of allergy season, try bringing in house plants that are known to clean the air and naturally collect pollen.

Babberton Daisy – these cheerful flowers effectively cleanse formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and benzene, found in various household materials.
Snake Plant – great to keep in your bedroom as it releases oxygen at night, helping you sleep better.
Peace Lily – one of the top air purifiers, and they further serve to moisturize the air.

Try to leave the windows open when you are cleaning, allowing fresh air to circulate.

Don’t forget to swap out your dirty filters.

For far more in-depth information about achieving a healthier home environment, consider my Greening Your Home Masterclass.

In addition to teaching you how to avoid toxic fumes and residues in your household to make your family healthier, this course will also provide detailed advice on skincare and make-up, as well as ingredients to avoid in your beauty and wellness products…and so much more!

Here’s to new beginnings and a cleaner, healthier home environment!

To your health & happiness,
