Spring Cleaning...*Pssh*

Spring cleaning...almost as fun as taxes. The two seem to go hand in hand, except taxes I could easily pass up. Cleaning, on the other hand is right in front of my face day in and day out.

Why am I blogging about this? Because I don't want to do it!!

I remember spring back home in Connecticut. A airy, clean, grass smell flowed through open windows as my mom vacuumed under all the furniture not moved in a year prior to the day. Dad gone at work. Ozzy, Offspring, AC/DC, or Aerosmith playing on our surround sound. The cat asleep on a warm window sill. Me sitting in my messy room. Yup....sure miss those days.

LOL I was do I remember all this.

Well It's my turn. I get to move the bed and clean the crumbs and dust that accumulated throughout the winter. I get to scrub the baseboards I've put off for so long. I get to try to reorganize all the random boxes. Oh joy oh joy.

One thing I'm doing different then my mom did when I was 5 is using natural cleaning products. I have a question though...


Seriously, even with coupons, sales, and a combination of the two I can't even break even to the same price as the leading chemical ridden cleaner.

So I did some research and of course, I find out I have half the stuff I need sitting in my kitchen. Vinegar. Lemon Juice. Baking Soda. Salt. Essential Oils.

Oh yeah. I washed my counter tops with plain old soap and water. Guess what?


Just as clean as using chemicals or natural cleaners.

I'd love to share this link with you guys:

(P.S. Aerosmith, Ozzy, ac/dc....yup I'm still playing them!)
