Day 3: Clean

Day 3: Clean

Although Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest, it was a day of cleaning. If your life is as busy as mine Sunday seems to be the only day to clean and put the house back in order before the next week.

 

So that is what we did!

 

It was the perfect day to open all the windows and let that cool breeze come into the home. Before we actually get into the details of organizing your closets, start with a clean slate by wiping down all the shelves, floors and drawers first, mine as well set it right the first time right!? A friend of mine has gotten me into the idea of using essential oils. I happen to have lemon essential oil on hand since we made our own homemade closet deodorizers. Check out the recipe for the closet deodorizers here. We took it a step further and added dried lavender from our neighbourhood spice shop Cardamom and Cloves!

To clean, I used hot water, white vinegar and about 5 drops of lemon essential oil in the water. I actually love the idea of using good and actual clean materials that are not harmful in any way and love the smell of lemony freshness!
