Hi Plummies! Spring time equals, love, pastel colors, blooms, warmer weather, and Spring CLEANING! Honestly, I don't know why "Spring" has been dubbed the cleaning season, I usually like to keep a clean house throughout the year...but whatever. Above is an example of a cleaning bucket that I keep under my kitchen sink. It has everything needed to tackle a dirty house. If you don't have a cleaning kit, I suggest you take a trip to Target and assemble one. Click here for printable cleaning lists and schedules.

Also, make sure to keep the environment in mind when cleaning up. Too many store bought cleaning products have very harmful and toxic ingredients. So, I prefer to buy nature-friendly products, like this one, and this one. Or, you can also create your own!

All-Purpose Cleaner (Watch out for a reaction! It will bubble a lot.)
- 3 Tablespoons vinegar
- 1/2 Teaspoon washing soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon castile soap
- 2 Cups hot water

Lavender Anti-Bacterial Spray
1 Cup water
- 20 drops lavender essential oil (Yup, Lavender is an anti-bacterial agent!)

Grease Cutter (Note that if you have a good eye, I messed up the label on this one for my bottles.)
2 Cups water
- 1/4 Cup castile soap
- 10 drops lavender oil

Bath, Sink, Tile Cleaner (Again, watch out for some bubbling.)
NOTE: Ideally, mix this one in a SQUIRT bottle, not a SPRAY bottle. It’s pretty thick and almost a paste.
- 2/3 Cup baking soda
- 1/2 Cup castile soap
- 2 Tablespoons vinegar
- 1/2 Cup water
- A few drops of Tea Tree oil

  3. Green cleaners are safer than traditional cleaning products. They are safe not only for the environment but for people too, while improving the quality of air.
