The warmer weather is coming (we promise, it really is) and with it comes the perfect time to freshen up our homes and let out some of the damp, dank winter vibes.
We know it's not like we can make cleaning fun, but wouldn't it be more enjoyable to have some all natural, beautifully bottled, homemade cleaners to make the job a little bit more pleasant? Not to mention they smell a lot nicer.
Our September Spring Clean and Household boxes contain just a few items to get you started and with a few simple ingredients (you'll notice some pretty common ones below - you can pick most of them up in refillable containters from your local bulk bin store), you'll have a fresh, clean, sustainable home in no time.
Add the ingredients for each recipe to a spray bottle, give it a good shake up and let it sit for an hour before using. Remember not to use vinegar based sprays on marble or granite benchtops.
Happy cleaning! If there really is such a thing...
