Spring is such a wonderful time for a reset. The flowers are budding, the air is warmer, people are coming out of their winter hibernations and the cleaning begins. The first three sound great but that fourth one brings up some mixed feelings. Does spring cleaning have to be so daunting? 

Spring cleaning can help with our mental health, increase our energy level, make us feel more focused, productive, and happier, and decrease our stress levels.

The best plant-based cleaning products and eco-friendly practices for green spring house cleaning this year.

So how do you start with your spring cleaning? The main thing to remember is to start small and focus room by room so you do not get overwhelmed. If focusing on one room at a time still seems overwhelming, maybe focus on a closet or a drawer first and then go from there.

One of the most important things to remember when spring cleaning is to use plant-based products. They often smell better and remove the excuse of potentially harsh chemicals damaging our precious skin and furniture.
