Ready for Spring?

I don’t know about you but I am so ready for spring. March is just around the corner and I am itching to spring clean, garden, cook up spring recipes, and open up the windows to breathe some fresh air! And not worry about another storm or snow.

Of course, I worry about the impending allergy season too since the allergy season started way too early last year due to the climate change and warm winter. I hope it won’t be as bad as last year But you just never know.

So I looked on our Pinterest board to see what spring tips I can find to share with you. Follow us on Pinterest if you are not already. We can share some great green tips!

Spring cleaning, you say? While I abhor cleaning usually, spring cleaning is one time I love it. It feels so therapeutic to just get rid of winter dust that are trapped everywhere inside the house. But what do you use for indoor cleaning? The Soft Landing has a comprehensive list of bleach alternatives.

One of the things we love to do is make our own cleaning products. Some of us make the whole line of laundry detergents to all-purpose cleaners. If making everything yourself sound daunting, start with making this easy hand soap DIY from Random Recycling. You’ll never go back to buying commercial brands. And with all the hand washing you’ll do when you come inside from spring time outdoors activities, you’ll need massive quantities of hand soap!

I can't even think about spring yet...not with this snow storm we just got.

Thanks for including the hand soap recipe...I feel better when I see the kids going crazy with soap knowing it's non-toxic and cheap!

 @greentalk I almost posted about preparing your garden for spring but I figured, I'd leave it up to the pro.

 @RandomRecycling So true! We wash our hands like bazillion times and I feel so much better when I know it's non-toxic. Thanks for the recipe!
