Winter Cleaning – 5 tips you NEED to know
Winter cleaning is the new spring cleaning! As the days get colder and shorter, we tend to spend more time inside cosying up by the fire. In order to get your home feeling clean and cosy, it's time to slip on your cleaning gloves and get certain tasks ticked off!
Here are 5 tips to keep your home tidy, safe and healthy all winter long.
#1: Declutter your space
While spending more of your day indoors, take the time to go through clothes, books and toys. If there is anything you haven’t used in a while consider donating these. It will make you feel productive, as well as declutter your space.
#2: Clean marks off the walls

#3: Clean your windows

Mix ¼ cup white vinegar, ½ teaspoon of eco-friendly dish detergent and 2 cups of warm water. Wipe your windows clean and use a microfibre cloth to polish!
#4: Wipe down your microwave
With all that popcorn and reheating meals, it is important to regularly clean your microwave.
Use this Will & Able Multipurpose Spray for a streak free finish. It’s eco-friendly and every bottle helps create work for someone with a disability. Simply spray inside your microwave then wipe clean.
#5: Refresh your bedding
When snuggling up in bed watching movies it’s important to have clean bedding.
Wash items with Omo Laundry Capsules on a hot wash to kill dust mites and any germs. While washing your bedding, be sure to vacuum your mattress on both sides as well as under your bed to help with allergies.
Tip: sprinkle a couple of drops of Eco Aroma Lavender Oil on your pillow before bed as it is known to improve sleep.
