Spring Cleaning brings our homes back on track. We can throw our doors open, crank up the jams, and clean our heart out. I was so tired of the cold weather and ready for some spring flowers. Ready to rock some sandals and shorts already!

Here are some of the must-haves when it comes to spring cleaning.

 Swiffer Pads + Solution

A Swiffer is a must in my house. I think I would go bonkers without the ability to just go- I don't like traditional mops. The only negative thing was buying the pads and solutions. Throwing them away makes me feel guilty AND who wants to spend all that money anyway? SO DIY-er that I am, I searched how to create my own. These are the best tutorial that I could find.

All Purpose Cleaner

The kitchen is the most cleaned room in the house it seems. I am always doing dishes or wiping something down. Our food is prepared on the counters and being germ-free is a must. Choosing an all-purpose cleaner is the best way to go.

I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t live without my washing machine. To give our always working washing machine a little TLC, get a washing machine cleaner. You can also choose to clean it naturally. Naturally Clean Your Washing Machine

I love the Container Store. They have a large variety of storage solutions, which I love to look through. This ones has a large, open design to accommodate cleaning supplies, shower necessities, car washing accessories or dog grooming essentials.
