The time has finally come to wave goodbye to winter and welcome the warmth of springtime. This season resonates with so many thanks to its promise of sunny skies, blossoming flowers and new life. It’s also well known as a time of year where the spark of renewal hangs in the air, leaving people with a determination and motivation to get down to ‘spring cleaning’. Whether you’re planning on spending this time decluttering your home to make room for your favourite oils or are simply looking to leave your surroundings feeling fresher, purer and revitalised in time for summer, the following list should provide you with some handy tips and tricks to spring clean your home with the assistance of the naturally derived and toxin-free products we hold dear at Young Living.
Make Your Own DIY Solution with Thieves® Household Cleaner
One of the major benefits of many products at Young Living is their versatility and adaptability. Our Thieves® Household Cleaner is a strong, ultra-concentrated, all-purpose cleaning solution that can work on all manner of surfaces, including wood, granite, glass, and various fabrics. Formulated without the harmful toxins that often appear in conventional cleaners, this solution is safe to use around your whole family and can be diluted or added to with ease, allowing you to make your own customised cleaning products. To tackle stubborn grease stains around the kitchen, try mixing one capful of Thieves® Household Cleaner with 1 drop of Pine essential oil and 1 cup of water. Alternatively, if the build-up of grime within your dishwasher is your main priority, add ½ capful of Thieves® Household Cleaner to 3 drops of Jade Lemon essential oil and 1 cup of white vinegar, before running your dishwasher on an empty cycle to leave it totally sparkling.
