Spring Cleaning with Flair

With a little extra floral and freshness, Spring cleanin’ ain’t so bad.

The one downside to the arrival of Springtime is the need for the completion of delightful chores collectively known as Spring Cleaning. Some people love it, I am not sure why, but my personal version of Spring fever does not consist of scrubbing floors, airing out mattresses, and vacuuming rugs. However, everyone’s gotta do it – and these products are sure to add more freshness, fun, and flair to your cleaning regimen – before you know it you’ll be outside enjoying the weather instead of cleaning house!

Hillhouse Naturals new Bloom Collection will have your house smelling like Spring! I lit the Bloom Soy Candle before I even began my cleaning escapades to give the house a nice scent while I did chores. The scent of the candle was just the right mix of floral and freshness. The floral scent is that of water lily, lotus flower and jasmine while the hint of freshness comes from bamboo and vetiver. I started cleaning with my room first; vacuumed the rug and put new leopard sheets and blankets on my bed. I liked the scent of the Bloom candle so much that I sprayed my room with the Bloom Home Fragrance mist. I love the lightness of the Bloom scent in both the candle and the spray, it was in no way too overpowering. Even though my room looks like a jungle with all the animal print, it smells like a garden of fresh flowers!

After my room was clean and smelling of lillies, my next task was to tackle the kitchen. The Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner from Seven Generation was my main cleaning agent of choice. I used it to clean the counter tops, the table, even scrubbed the stove with it! Not only is this product amazing because of it’s ability to disinfect almost any surface, but that it kills over 99.9% of these houshold germs naturally! While in the kitchen I also made sure to add the book The Conscious Kitchen by Alexandra Zissu to my little pile of cook books. This book emphasizes that carefully choosing certain foods to eat and cook we can better both our bodies and the planet! What other season to go green during more appropriate than Spring?

Once I finally finished cleaning my house from top to bottom I needed a cleaning myself! In the shower I used a detoxifying cleansing treatment for my hair. Eufora’s Urgent Repair Shampoo removes the damaging elements such as mineral build up and restores your hair’s health. Unlike other detoxifiying shampoos, Eufora’s won’t leave hair dry and brittle. At the end of the day,  my house and hair were both clean and ready for Spring!
