Spring Cleaning Tips: Choose natural cleaning for big projects and A Note from the Universe

St Patrick's Day is this month. Wishing you lot's of surprises.

Choose natural cleaning for big projects

Sure, you vacuum, dust, and wipe the counters on a daily or weekly basis, but spring is the perfect time to focus on the spaces you generally gloss over–by vacuuming out the refrigerator coils to make the appliance more efficient, deep-cleaning your carpet, and washing your drapes. For the carpet, mix borax and essential oil together, sprinkle over the rug, let it sit, and then vacuum; for curtains and drapes that are machine washable, use an eco-friendly detergent. If they’re not up to going in the washer, find an eco-friendly dry cleaner in your area and drop them off there.

A Note from the Universe

When you finally get that call, meet that person, walk that walk, and live that dream, Pama, do you think you’ll even care that there were a few dark and scary moments in a journey that made them all possible?

Trust me, you won’t even remember.

Spring Cleaning Tips: Aim for a no-waste clean, and a Note from the Universe

Aim for a no-waste clean

No matter how green your sprays and scrubs may be, if you use an entire roll of paper towels to scrub your bathroom–well, that is not exactly eco-friendly cleaning. And when you’re looking at a project as big as this one, you’ll want to leave little to no waste in your wake. Trade paper towels for reusable microfiber cloths or sponges, and ditch the Swiffer sweeper for a broom (preferably one you already have, of course) or the disposable mop for a reusable one.

A note from the Universe

There are no sane reasons to limit a dream, Pama.

After all, you don’t have to deliver it. I do.
