Easy Tips for Green Spring Cleaning (with Lavender!)

As the days lengthen and we see the sun a bit more each day, we may also see a bit more dirt and grime around the house.  Much like nature's spring renewal and refreshing, springtime is often the time we renew and refresh our cleaning routines that may have taken a "long winter's nap" during the preceding months.

If you are in need of some spring cleaning inspiration, you're in luck!  We've put together some tips and tricks using our all-natural, chemical-free and lavender-based cleaning products to get you in the cleaning mood.

Green Spring Cleaning the Kitchen...

Is your kitchen a little lackluster?  Utilize one or all of these tried and true cleaning methods to rejuvenate your cooking, eating and gathering space once again. *Always first check your appliance manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.

Sinks : Wet the surface, sprinkle a generous amount of Lavender Household Cleanser on a dampened sponge or cloth, scrub away and marvel at how this all-natural cleansing powder removes grease and grime from non-porous surfaces.  Rinse well.  It works wonders on porcelain, stainless steel and composite sinks.  (Bonus - the sweet fragrance makes scrubbing much more enjoyable!)

Stove Tops : Dampen cook top surface and sprinkle with Lavender Household Cleanser.  Let sit for at least 10 minutes on charred spills.  Wipe clean with a damp cloth then polish until the surface shines.

Coffee Machines : Non-acidic, our Organic Lavender Hydrosol will not harm delicate components, even those of espresso machines.  Use regularly to help prevent hard water stains and mold growth.  Spritz all surfaces, including filter baskets and water reservoirs.  Wipe with a fresh sponge and scrub small parts with a soft brush as needed.

Trash, recycling and composting bins : Often neglected, these can be the source of malodors and insect problems.  Cleaning up these receptacles is no pleasant task.  Don your rubber gloves and pull out your lavender cleaning products to make it a bit more tolerable.

Generously spritz ALL surfaces - inside, outside, top and bottom of bins with Organic Lavender Hydrosol.  Let sit a few minutes to dissolve grime and wipe clean with paper towels or rags.  Repeat if necessary.  And, there's no need for artificially fragranced trash bags.  For natural freshening sprinkle the bottom of the bins with Lavender Household Cleanser to further repel insects and absorb odors.

Green Spring Cleaning your Electronic Gadgets and Gizmos...

Did you know that cell phones, remote controls, computer keyboards and handheld gaming equipment boast some of the most bacteria-ridden surfaces around?  Independent lab studies show that they can harbor yeast, mold, E. Coli and Staph among other unsavory matter*.  Anyone guilty of taking your cell phone into the washroom?

Harness the antiseptic, truly streak-free, and non-abrasive qualities of our farm-distilled Organic Lavender Hydrosol to clean and shine these digital devices.  Lavender Hydrosol also works wonders for dusty and smudged electronics surfaces of all sorts, such as television and computer screens.

Simply dampen a soft, clean cloth (microfiber or recycled flannel cut into handkerchief-sized squares works well) and wipe surfaces until fingerprint and grime free.
