Springtime is upon us! That means the flowers are blooming, the weather is warming, and the natural world receives a burst of new life. If your apartment here at Gran Ciudad Nuevo Sur could use a similar breath of fresh air, it’s time to tidy up! Spring cleaning helps clear away the clutter in both physical and mental spaces that have built up over the year. Here are some tips on how to make your tidy day productive and fun!
Set Up Cleaning Games for Kids
If you live with little ones, chances are getting them to do their part with chores can be a challenge. Luckily, cleaning games for kids help reframe the way they think about housework. By imbibing an element of play into tidying, children can start to associate cleaning with positivity. Not only does this develop into healthy habits for them down the line, but parents get to reconnect with their inner child once they get involved in the games too!
Frugally-Minded DIY Cleaners
The general message of the spring season is, “out with the old, in with the new.” This mantra can be reflected in the cleaning products you use too! Sticking to store-bought can cut into your household budget in the long-term. Making the switch to DIY cleaners is cost-effective and can inspire some creativity! For example, this citrus-scented all-purpose cleaning spray takes just five ingredients to make, and is perfect for beginning hobbyists, and costs pennies on the dollar.
Green Cleaning Hacks Around the House
The best part about making the switch to homemade cleaners? More often than not, it’s the eco-friendliest choice. Store-bought cleaning products contain harsh chemicals and give off strong smells, making them harmful to use around pets and children. Natural grime-fighting powerhouses like vinegar, baking soda, and borax get the job done right with less impact on the earth and are incredibly versatile to use. Check out this list of green cleaning hacks to learn more about how to mix and match natural cleansers to tackle messes all over your household!
