No one likes spring cleaning, especially me! Instead, I see the spring as a time to try some new things and put some new habits into place. After all, it’s a lot easier to keep the house clean when you do a little at a time. When I let things go, it’s so much harder and takes too long to scrub and clean. Harris Teeter has some great (and simple!) ideas to try this spring for clean eating, DIY beauty, cleaning, and home organization. Here are my favorites:
Keeping the house organized and tidy means putting everything back in its place. In a multi-level home, it’s easy for toys, clothes and gear to end up on the wrong floor. By putting a stair bucket or basket in place, there’s a spot to collect these items to reduce clutter. We have one on each landing, and my three kids have to empty the baskets before we have dinner each night. It really works!
Garbage Disposal Fresheners
Use a few simple ingredients along with a lemon and baking soda to make these DIY fresheners for your garbage disposal. I know that in my home, that’s often the source of a stinky kitchen.
Spring is a great time to break the soda habit. Drink more water with this simple recipe using lemon and strawberries. It calls for seltzer water, but I bet it would taste great with regular water, too.
