4 Simple Ways to Freshen Your Home

With Spring officially here, it's time to start thinking about Spring cleaning.  I don't know if it is the warmer temperatures or the sunshine, but I'm starting to feel the need to clean. But I'm not quite in full on scrub mode yet. So I've come up with a couple easy ways to freshen up your homestead that take advantage of this lovely season and may even get me in the mood to tackle more of that winter grime.


4 Simple Ways to Freshen Your Home
  • Open the Windows: even if it's not super warm out yet, let that fresh air in! Even just for 30 minutes, it's a great way to clean out that stale air.  A perfect way to get your house smelling like Spring and it'll even help to flush out germs, allergens and toxins too! 
  • Sunbathe Your Bedding: you may not be quite ready to part with your woolly blankets just yet, but get them outside. Take your blankets and pillows and let them bake in the sun for a few hours.  It's a great way to get them smelling fresh, but also helps get rid of any yuckies that may be hanging around.
  • Hang Your Laundry: it's the perfect time to get your clothes out on the line.  It doesn't have to be super warm to dry your laundry outside, you just need some sun and maybe a breeze.  You'll love the smell of your clothes and the best part is, you'll be saving money, the environment and you get to spend a little more time outside!
  •  Wash the Windows: it's hard to enjoy the weather when you can barely see out your windows. A sunny day is the perfect time to get cleaning your glass.  And don't forget your screens! They're likely filled with all kinds of grime that you don't want blowing through your house.  I love using my ENJO for windows and screens and the best part is you only need water to get them sparkling! 

How do you freshen up your home? I know my windows will be open today!
