Happy Spring! With a new season and current circumstances we are all facing, now is the perfect time to give your home a little extra love.
Cleaning your home doesn't need to be full of harsh chemicals, non-recyclable cleaning products, or boring.
Here's a quick list to get into action:
1. A jammin playlist:
Music soothes the sole and get's the body moving. We found a few fun "spring cleaning" playlists on Spotify and Amazon Music.
2. Have a plan:
Maybe you have daily chores down but aren't sure where to start to get a good spring clean? A few years ago, I stumbled upon Natalie Rebecca organizers. I absolutely love her cleaning organizer. She put together daily, weekly, and zone cleaning charts to keep you on track.
We teamed up with Natalie to offer a great discount:

We even took some sheets from her organizer and used an old picture frame to give the kids a chore list. Use a dry erase marker to wipe down and reset. You can set up a rewards system with this if you want. We use a point system for each chore they complete. Points=rewards.
3. Sustainable Cleaning:
Not sure what to look for in cleaning products? Here are a few suggestions:1. Natural bristle brushes:
Tampico Fibers: Made with plant fibers from an Agave plant. Very sturdy and great for scrubbing dishes. Click HERE for some of our favorites. Compost at the end of it's life
2. Non-toxic Cleaners:
There are ways to reduce the toxins in your home and get it squeaky clean. Harmful chemicals like parabens (found in preservatives like methyl or propyl paraben), or phthalates (found in vinyl, PVC, and fragrances-to name a few) are found in many cleaners on the market.
We hope these simple tips will help you get motivated to clean easier and safer for you and the earth.
We also have added all our sustainable cleaning products on a special "spring cleaning" section listed here: thedapperdwelling.com
