Intentionally – and Safely! – Clean Your Home

Want to intentionally — and safely — clean your home?

March is here! Springtime can NOT be that far away (especially since the official start is just two weeks away). Here in Northeastern Ohio, I am particularly excited for the weather to start to warm up and all of the piles and piles of snow to melt.

As the daylight lingers a little longer every evening, I’m reminded that spring is coming soon. I can hear it in the chirps of birds and see it in the way the squirrels play in the tree branches. It may not look like spring right now, but all of creation knows it’s on the way.

So I know that spring cleaning is coming soon! Once the weather gets warmer and sun starts to shine more, I feel a natural pull to deep clean my dusty, dirty house. I like starting a warmer time of year with a freshly cleaned home.

Are you a stickler when it comes to spring cleaning?  (As in do you know you need to do it?) Here's how you can safely clean your home ...

Because I’m a stickler when it comes to spring cleaning (as in I need to do it!) I am very intentional about my springtime schedule.

My husband and I host a Messianic Passover Seder each spring, and part of the preparation is making sure our home is cleaned from top to bottom. Since Passover begins right before Easter, I know my cleaning deadline is a month away. (Yikes!!) I actually like finishing my deep cleaning before Easter, because once the weather warms up again, I want to spend as much time as possible outside.

To read how I safely clean each room in my home without any synthetic chemicals, check out my post: Cleaning Without Chemicals {Room-by-Room Guide}. I’ve been testing and writing about green cleaning techniques for the past four years – this post includes what I’ve found.

I’ve advised how to fugally and safely clean your home in my post, Safely Clean on a Budget.

I’m also giving away my eBook, The Accidentally Green Guide to Cleaning Without Chemicals, to e-mail subscribers, as well as the printable, Accidentally Green’s Room By Room Deep Cleaning Checklist. To get both resources, please subscribe today!

Sometimes, even when you know how to clean safely, sometimes you need a little motivation to tackle tough jobs. Here are some challenges to help you get started:

I will use these same challenges as I struggle to get motivated to clean my home this month.
