When we think Spring Cleaning we think mopping, dusting, and throwing out. It's that, but so much more. Spring Cleaning can good for our mood and bodies too.
First!! This is my big soap box -Non-toxic, safe cleaners: so let's start with safe spring cleaning and why:
Why Use Safe Cleaners:
Chemical pollutants have been found to be 2 to 5 times higher inside our homes than outside and can lead to :
Eye, nose, and throat irritation
Respiratory infections in children
More serious health issues can occur
In one decade, there has been a 42% increase in asthma ( 29% for men, 82% for women ). The higher rate for women is believed to be due to women’s longer exposure times to household chemicals. [Center for Disease Control]
Women who work in the home have a 54% higher risk of dying from cancer than women who work outside of the home because of their increased exposure to household chemicals. [Toronto Indoor Air Conference of 1990 from a 15+ year study]
I personally love how fresh and clean things feel after Spring Cleaning. It's a great time to clean areas that may get skipped at other times, like baseboards, behind furniture, and windows. It's also a great time to clean out closets and get rid of items that you're not using, you know Marie Kondo Style or Home Edit, organizers choice.
Spring cleaning doesn't just give you a clean and organized home, but has other benefits too:
Did you know that house cleaning gets you moving and counts as light exercise? Cleaning can burn calories, keep you active, and even contribute towards having a healthy heart!
A clean home can strengthen your immune system by cutting down on dander, mildew, dust, and germs. - Tip: Take shoes of at the door too, to cut down on what gets tracked in.
Mental Health and Sleep. Studies show that reducing the clutter and having a Clean home helps you feel better, relax better and sleep better.
Eat better! Did you know a study found that individuals in a clean and organized room chose healthier snacks!!
