If I clean my house enough will it finally feel like spring outside? Man! What a joke! The biggest prank ever was when it was 55 degrees in February in Minnesota. Lets just say that NEVER happens and once again it’s freezing outside. The best part about spring cleaning is that I never have to feel like I’m inhaling tons of chemicals to get the job done thanks to Thieves Household Cleaner. Young Living has a ton of great products that are not essential oils, but I have to say their cleaner is by far my favorite. Because of it’s all natural benefits I never have to worry about my child coming in contact with it. This ONE bottle replaced everything under my sink and it’s SO nice to not have a bunch of different bottles cluttering up precious under the sink space! Plus because it’s so concentrated that bottle last a long time. You only have to use one capful of cleaner per spray bottle filled with water. Oh and it smells awesome!
Here is a list of possible uses but really the list is endless. I keep my “daily cleaning” bottle next to my sink and I pretty much use it for EVERYTHING below unless I need a more heavy-duty approach and then I will make the other mixtures.

(USE: granite countertops, sinks, doorknobs, light switches, children toys, exercise equipments, garbage cans, fireplace, microwave, oven, stove top, stainless steel appliances, cleaning my car, cupboards, fridge & freezer, walls, floors, glass/mirrors, vents, mattress, blind, dog kennels, light bathroom cleaning, ummm EVERYTHING)

Seriously though, who doesn’t love a product that is all natural, non-toxic, economical and highly effective?? It will be the LAST cleaning product that I ever buy. I am dead serious when I say that too. I am a beTHIEVER. Yes, that’s a made up name for those who believe in Thieves and I am proud of it.
Now back to cleaning and dreaming of warmer weather. What’s your springtime routine?
