I love spring! It is getting warmer outside, the sun is out, and everything outside is in bloom. Open the windows, clean off the patio furniture and hang up the clothesline!
Winter can get long in Colorado. Snow gets old fast and spring is a nice change. And there is nothing better to kick off spring than a good spring cleaning.

5 Tips for Using Natural Cleaners:
- When using essential oils, always use a glass spray bottle.
- You can recycle a glass vinegar jar into a spray bottle by adding a sprayer.
- If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, you can add a scent to it. Try this recipe.
- When using essential oils, a little goes along way. Only put the amount of drops in the recipe. More isn’t necessarily better when it comes to essential oils.
- If you are unsure about using natural cleaners on your carpet, upholstery, etc. then try it out on a small area first.
