Houses & Homes: Spring cleaning in January?

As the decorations come down and as your new calendar marks the days you're headed back into the office, most people take advantage of those few days in between to do a massive overhaul.

While storage spaces turn upside down, we tend to figure "why not clean and organize the rest of the house?". Our leftovers from the fridge get thrown while the shelves get cleaned, the bathrooms get scrubbed down while the towels are getting bleached and living areas get disinfected from the germs that may have caused holiday colds for the rest of us. We even tend to go for the closets, see what we wouldn't wear for the rest of the season and donate clothes.

So, a new year cleaning is definitely a much needed start and refresher for the new year ahead, especially if you are thinking of putting your house on the market. Show more room in your walk-ins, storage spaces and more.

Using natural alternatives to clean sweep your home, can still give you the same effect without the overwhelming smell. Incorporating a few ingredients and essential oils in items such as wood polish, mirror/window cleaner, disinfectant spray & all-purpose cleaner are some prime examples to toil with!
