I love spring so much… all the wildflowers everywhere, bumblebees flying about, trees sprouting all of that beautiful, fresh green. There’s something so refreshing and energizing about this season. We have four pets, so it’s the time of year when we are looking to do a deep clean around the house, getting rid of the winter coat that has managed to shed (and turn into several new animals). This is the season that I feel the need to open all the windows, smell the honeysuckle and jasmine growing just outside my house, and enjoy the backyard until the sun goes down.
I’ve rounded up eight DIYs and tips from the archives that will help kickstart washing away winter — and prepare us for summer, so we can spend more time outside, enjoying the longer days. —Erin
Image above: I’m always looking for a little guide to quickly clean my home. This printable guide would be great to keep taped inside a kitchen cabinet or in the laundry room for a quick reference to easy cleaning solutions; so you can spend more time enjoying spring, rather than cleaning up from it.
