DIY Cleaners Post

Spring has sprung and it’s time for that annual overhaul we call spring cleaning. This usually means a total purge of all things excess. A round-up of dust buffalo, because the dust bunnies have somehow mutated into near sentient beings. Once you’ve evicted the unwanted dust creatures it’s time to scrub everything down real good. Floor to ceiling good.
But, your nose is already filled with dust and particles. Your hands are aching from holding the broom hard enough to win the battle against the cobwebs, or was that just me? Anyway, after all of that, do you really want to spend the rest of this time breathing in harsh chemicals and chaffing your delicate skin. Not to mention potentially damaging a perfectly good mani? I think not! So, this weeks Tuesdays Tips is a round-up of some ingeniously simple, chemical free, not to mention cheep, solutions to the spring cleaning blues.
