Time and Tips for Spring Cleaning

Young Living Oil Lady tips for Spring Cleaning

Spring is in the air! I know most if not all of us, are SO happy to say those words. It has been a long cold winter. I can even say that as a Floridian. Yea, I know that sounds crazy, but for us it was COLD! :)

With Spring, come the bloom of flowers and the beautiful “green” floating stuff that you see all over your cars, driveways, streets, and bottoms of your shoes. While it is a great time for spring, it also can be a bothersome time as well.

I want to give you some Spring Cleaning Tips to help simplify your life and even help you feel better during the transition of winter to spring.

1. Make Yourself A Schedule:

This might sound tedious, but writing it down helps!  With all of our “to do lists” we already have, we won’t make the time to Spring clean unless we schedule it. We must make a point to schedule it in our day. Block off a few hours every day and make a schedule of what rooms you are going to clean. Make a list of what you are going to do in each room. Once you see that room “Checked off” you will be amazed at how good it feels. Accomplishment achieved. Now… move on to the next room, next item on your scheduled list.

2. Take It One Room At A Time:
This was briefly mentioned in step 1. For so long, and still to this  to this day unless I make a schedule and a point to do this one day at a time, one room at a time, I would clean a little in each room, not accomplishing all that I wanted to get done and feeling like nothing got done. While each room might have a little less clutter or the clothes all put away, I still felt like my house was messy and not clean.  Now, I make it a point to take just one or two rooms a day and complete them before moving on to the next. That way I have areas that are neat and tidy and can focus all my attention on the next room that needs cleaning on another day. If I can clean my entire house in ONE day, then that is my optimal preference, but it can’t always been done in a day, so having a schedule keeps me organized, focused, and on task.

3. De- Clutter

Once you have gone through steps 1 and 2, then go through each room again and make it a point to get rid of old clothes, clothes that no longer fit, stacked paperwork that needs shredding, anything that can be donated or thrown away.  Put these items either in recycling/trash or in a give away/donation box. Put on your schedule a day to call for someone to come and pick up your donated items or mark a day on your calendar that you are going to drop off those items.

4. Simplify Your Cleaning Supplies

I don’t know about you, but I used to have a bottle for everything. I needed a bottle that would clean my windows, one that would clean my hardwood floors, one that would clean my granite countertops, one that would clean the stainless steel appliances, one that would clean the windows, one that would clean my sinks and tubs, and the list goes on and on. I have simplified my life with ONE household cleaner! And the best bonus of it all, is that it is safe, non-toxic, chemical free, eco-friendly, green, and it cleans my hardwood floors, my kitchen countertops, my appliances, my mirrors, my windows… one bottle does it all! I have simplified my counter space below my sink as I no longer need a bottle for every single cleaning job. Talk about de- clutter! :) This is my household cleaner that cleans it all!

5. Spring Time Sniffles and Sneezes

When the Spring cleaning starts, or spring season, so does the nose. I like to be pro-active and be on top of the “green stuff outside” and the symptoms that come with it. I do not want my family or I to take OTC products, nor do we need to.  We have safe, powerful, natural and effective alternatives. My family and I use Young Living Essential Oils. We use a trio of essential oils to help with sniffles and sneezes. It works great! With Young Living, we can take the oils internally, or apply topically for symptoms. For spring time, I also use several other YL products that aid in building up the immune system, naturally, as well as your digestive system, where health begins- in the gut.

 All Young Living Essential Oils can be purchased with a Wholesale account which you can get here- Open a Wholesale Account  Young Living produces the highest quality essential oils in the world and they are used overseas at health clinics for chronic diseases.

 6. Use Helping Hands

Have your kids or spouse help you with these spring cleaning tasks. Give everyone their own schedule (see step 1) and let the fun begin.They say four hands are better than two, six hands are better than two… so the more hands you have the better off you will be.

7. Turn on Music

Time will go by faster if you have the music turned up… LOUD! Sing and shout and dance your way to clean!
