And what would the first official day of spring be without a dose of spring cleaning?
In short, it would not very spring-y.
Nor would it be appropriate to the season if the cleaning were done with a chemical-based cleaner.
Why not use some all-natural ingredients that remind you of the nature that’s bursting outside?
That’s why today, we’ve got a fast and easy window and mirror wash made of all-natural ingredients. You can use this to get your windows sparkling and clear so you can see all the beautiful daffodils, tulips and magnolias that are in full bloom.
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of a vegetable oil-based liquid soap such as Dr. Bronner’s Magic Pure Castile Classic Soaps
3 tablespoons of vinegar
2 cups of water
10 drops of lavender or lemon essential oil
Pour all ingredients into the spray bottle and shake it up. Spray on your windows and mirrors, then use a washcloth to wipe down.
Well, that was fast and easy. Now it’s time to go out and soak in some of spring’s bounty.
