Springtime is here! That means the flowers are in bloom, the weather is warming, and the natural world begins its rejuvenation. If your apartment here at Orion could use a similar refresh, spring cleaning is in order. Tidying up for the season clears away built-up clutter from earlier in the year, making space both in physical as well as mental spaces. Here are some tips on how to make your spring cleaning session productive and fun!
Set Up Cleaning Games for Kids
Living with little ones, while incredibly rewarding, can lead to challenging messes to tackle. You can get your children on board with doing their part with cleaning games for kids! By adding an element of fun to the cleaning process, kids develop a healthier mindset around tidying up down the line. Plus, parents who get involved have a chance to get back in touch with their inner child!
Get Crafty With DIY Cleaners
The overall message of springtime is to shake off the old to make way for the new. This mantra can apply to the cleaning products you use too! Chances are, keeping up with your current cleaning product arsenal is cutting into your household budget. Not only do most DIY cleaners cost pennies on the dollar to create, but it’s fun to experiment with making cleaning products with common cleaning supplies you might already have laying around. For example, this citrus-scented all-purpose spray uses just five ingredients and is perfect for beginners to make.
Easy Green Cleaning Hacks
The best part about using homemade products is that, more often than not, they’re a lot more eco-friendly than their store-bought counterparts. Name brand household cleaners can contain harsh chemicals and give off strong smells, which can harm small children and pets. The naturally cleaning powerhouses from the likes of baking soda, vinegar, and borax get the job done while lessening their harm on the earth. Check out this list of green cleaning hacks and get inspired with ideas on how to use natural cleansers around your whole household!
