Spring is in the air: Make your home healthier this season

Spring is in the air: Make your home healthier this season

Breaking news! It was reported early this week that the sun had been spotted! It was there for just one tantalising minute before disappearing again behind the grey gloom.

Remember the sun? The warmth on your face; the brightness of a cloudless sky; a golden glow that brings a smile to the faces of everyone it touches. I joke, but you can see people starting to sniff the air like hedgehogs emerging from hibernation.

Spring is definitely on its way, and with the change of season comes a change in energy, too.

Throw open the windows!

It’s a wonderful time of year. The mornings are lighter (no more need for headlights on the way to work), with more time for outdoor play and exercise as the evenings grow longer too. The promise of spring never fails to deliver – that freshness, the newness of nature as it shakes off winter, and an overall vibrancy that invigorates us all. It makes you want to throw open the windows and let the fresh air into your home.

What’s happened to my house?

But with the onset of spring comes the ironic illumination of winter for all to see. The influx of daylight casts a bright spotlight all too clearly on the effects that winter has had on the home.

The sunlight has an uncanny knack of showing up all the spots and streaks that winter has so cleverly hidden from us. Do any of these thoughts sound familiar:

  • “Has anyone else noticed the streaks on my windows?”
  • “Surely that spot on the carpet hasn’t always been there!”
  • “Those little spills in the fridge surely can’t still be left over from seasonal festivities, can they?”

Ok, it’s not as bad as all that, but now is the time to harness the energy of spring to spruce up your wellbeing and cast off the winter gloom.

Spring into a new regime

Just as many of us reinvigorate our personal health at this time of year, it’s a great opportunity to focus on your home health as well.

Spring gives us the opportunity to replenish our cleaning supplies and make better choices about what we put in the undersink cupboard. Time to oust those harsh chemical products and start the new season with a cleaning range that is kinder to the environment and helps you clean with conscience.

That’s entirely the basis for what we make at Clean Living: gentle, eco-friendly cleaning products that are positive for your wellbeing and healthy for your home.

Start the season with a healthy home

Here are four other brilliant products that are perfect for giving your home a thorough top-to-toe spring clean:

Glass Cleaner

This is the product for you if you want your glass and glossy surfaces (those most at risk from the sunshine spotlight) left streak free and shiny. It dissolves grease quickly and lifts dirt, so you don't need to spend ages scrubbing and buffing.

Dry Carpet Cleaner

Fantastic at removing muddy marks brought in by winter boots. It's super-effective at removing dirt from carpet fibres and is graded as wool safe, but if you do find a more stubborn stain, you can always pre-treat it with Clean Living Biological Odour and Spot Remover for a spotless finish.

Biological Multi-Purpose Cleaner

The go-to product for so many areas of the home. It’s gentle but powerful enough to clean your fridge with (and rid it of those festive spills) without the use of any chemicals. It’s also great as a spritz and buff to refresh the entire house.

Biological Spot and Odour Remover

Perfect to use this on all carpets, rugs and upholstery. It’s brilliant for refreshing your winter woollies before storing them over winter. Another tip is to spritz your mattress, pillows and winter duvet with it before you switch to lighter bedding. The enzymes in our formulations will eat away at any odorous bacteria can sit in your bedding, usually from sweat or oils that transfer onto it as we sleep. Gross but true!

So spring into action and make a positive choice for the health of your family and the planet this year.
