There’s something intrinsic about spring cleaning. Everything in nature is fresh and new so naturally, sprucing up the house just feels like the right thing to do.

I like to open windows for fresh air so spring cleaning with harsh chemicals is a little counter-intuitive. Apparently, I’m not alone because natural, homemade cleaning recipes are trending on Pinterest.

    It is so nice to celebrate the the end of the long dreary winter by throwing the windows and doors open and washing the grime, germs, and stale air out and let the freshness and clean take over. Invigorate your home, your mind, your body, and your outlook on life. Get ready for a season of fun and activity.

    It is generally believed that bloods stained are too obstinate, and they do not get removed from the fabric completely. However, I was amazed to see how easily I got the blood stain out of the Oriental rug with the help of the professional carpet cleaners, as they applied modern techniques to remove all sorts of dirt marks and stains.
