It Does Matter!
When I was a kid growing up, spring cleaning was as much a part of the season as flowers blooming and grass turning green. History teaches us that spring cleaning actually dates back as far as the 19th century.
The history of spring cleaning is interesting. It was started because kerosene and wood-burning stoves would leave a big mess by the end of winter.
So here we are just more than 200 years later, and still, we continue this annual tradition across the land. But why?
Spring cleaning helps welcome the sun
While we may not have to deal with all the grime and soot of our ancestors, the winter season can still bring its share of messes. Spring is the perfect time to throw open the windows and let the light and fresh air in.
One thing you may notice as the light comes filtering through your windows is how dirty they really are. That’s ok…now’s the time to make them crystal clear and really let that sunshine in.
Maybe where you live, the snow hasn’t quite gone away yet. That doesn’t mean you have to wait to start spring cleaning. In fact, now is the perfect time to get started.
Tidying up is a mood-booster
Working from home makes cleaning all that more important. How our living spaces look impacts our productivity and mental health. Healthline highlighted how keeping your home workspace clean and tidy is as much about self-care as it is about getting the work done.
Adding in an uplifting or energizing fragrance will also go a long way to helping your mental attitude and productivity. Whether you use essential oils, wax, or mt personal favorite a fun new fan diffuser to emit the fragrance, find your favorite and watch the difference it will make.
Cleaning surfaces helps to fight allergens
Do you or a family member suffer from Spring allergies? I know my family does. That’s why we take the time to deep clean. Deep cleaning will set you up for fresh success! Spring is the perfect time to get into the habit of cleaning regularly. In fact, a study by the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology found that spring cleaning can help reduce allergy symptoms.
It is also recommended that we clean our carpets, upholstery, and bedding regularly. Scentsy Laundry products will lift away dirt and infuse your fabrics with long-lasting fragrance. It’s the perfect partner in your quest to clean.
Regular cleaning of high-traffic spaces keeps you healthy
If we have learned anything over the last year, it is that keeping things clean is important. It is especially important in high-use spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. As the Mayo clinic reported, disinfection surfaces are especially important when you or a member of your family falls ill. Sanitizing these important areas can help keep your family healthy.
I love using Scentsy cleaning products to keep things fresh and clean. They are versatile, high-performing formulas–without all the phosphates, dyes, ammonia, chlorine, or bleach! Clean without the dangerous chemicals!
