Spring Cleaning for a healthy home, body and mind
Spring is sprung, the grass is ris…
Do you know the rest of that rhyme? I always remember my Grandad chanting it whenever this time of year came around. While my favourite season has to be autumn, there is something truly special about spring that no other time of year can match.
The fresh, brighter mornings and emerging pops of colour as trees and flowers start to bud really put a bounce in my step. My mood is brightens and I have an urge to do and achieve more. But this spring is unfolding a little differently than usual. The world is dealing with a health pandemic, which is forcing us to stay behind closed doors as much as we can, in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Covid-19 is having an huge impact on us all and has totally changed nearly every element of our day to day lives. That’s not easy to adjust to or accept. Yet there are some positives we can find comfort in. Instead of going stir crazy looking at the same four walls, try to be thankful for this unusual amount of spare time. Embrace it by catching up on an array of things to help you feel calmer and more in control than usual. It’s also a perfect time to tackle the annual spring clean which can work wonders for the home, body and mind.
Dust those mental cobwebs away
Spring has a way of making us smile and frown at the same time. The reappearance of the sun is a joy but it also illuminates all the dust in our homes, highlighting the need to whip out the cleaning kit. So that happy burst can quickly become despair and a mad dash for the cleaning products.
It’s time for our Biological Multipurpose Cleaner to step into the spotlight. A true multi-tasker that offers a deep, lasting, hygienic clean. It really is the perfect product to reach for in your home right now. Studies show that 40% of us Brits spend just 15 minutes outdoors each day. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that are home are probably pretty grubby!
At Clean Living, we’re advocating spring cleaning to stay healthy in both body and mind during this period of social distancing and isolation. Cleaning might seem like a small chore rather than a thing of pleasure. But it’s great exercise and many studies say it’s fantastic for your mental health too. It occupies the mind giving you something to focus and creates a sense of achievement when you finish the task. And let’s be honest, there’s nothing like the feeling of satisfaction when you flop on the sofa and enjoy a cup of tea in your freshly cleaned, beautifully fragranced home.
Keeping your home hygienic
It’s impossible to escape the conversation about coronavirus and we all know how important it is to wash your hands. But what about your home? While we’re all cooped up indoors, keeping the touch points around your home clean is just as vital. Think about light switches, door handles, work tops and other things like your phone, laptop and keys too. You have your hands on all of them many times a day, so it’s important to make sure they’re not gathering dirt that can harbour bacteria and viruses.
If I can advise you to do one thing right now to keep your home hygienic, it is to use our Biological Multipurpose Cleaner. It’s formulated to clean deep into the pores of surfaces where traditional cleaning products cannot reach, for a far superior clean. The healthy bacteria in the formula are active even after use, meaning that your surfaces are protected for longer. This makes it the ideal product to use throughout your home and on your door handles, phone, TV remote control, keys and leather purse or wallet – anywhere where germs and bacteria could be lurking.
Another thing to consider when cleaning is indoor air pollution, which can be a real problem when you’re indoors a lot but it’s still too chilly to fling the windows open. Don’t believe us? There is a brilliant blog by Molekule who are on a mission to eliminate air pollution.
Our Biological Multipurpose Cleaner’s formula won’t pollute the air inside your home, so you can breathe easy. In fact all of our products are free from harsh toxins like Sodium Hydroxide, Chlorine, Phosphates, Solvents and Ammonia. All of which you will find is most cleaning products lining supermarket shelves. Not only can you inhale fumes from these stringent chemicals, but they also sit as residue on surfaces, which you and your family then absorb through your skin.
