Spring into Cleaning Naturally!

It’s probably everyone’s least favorite part of the season…but it’s necessary after tracking all sorts of snowy, muddy detritus into the house over the winter. Yes, it’s time for spring cleaning! You could do it the old-fashioned way…by getting down on your hands and knees and scrubbing away with a caustic and not-so-happy-smelling cleaner. Or you could have an aromatherapy experience and turn your scrub-day into a spa-day thanks to our wonderful selection of sensationally scented suds and carefully crafted cleaners.

Take Mrs. Meyer’s, for example. These deliver on every front- they smell AMAZING, they’re cute enough to keep on your kitchen counter, and they power through grease like Grandma after three cups of coffee. If you’re a fan of feminine florals, go with honeysuckle, geranium, or lavender; snag basil, rosemary, or lemon verbena for a clean, fresh scent without the ladylike qualities (perfect for your teenaged dude’s bathroom or even hubby’s man cave). And no worries about whether they smell better than they clean- the soapbark extract inside gets through the grossest, grimiest, and greasiest stuck-on stains with the greatest of ease.

Looking for local? We work closely with the good folks at Seventh Generation to make sure you’re getting the best bargains on your green clean supplies; our partnership brings you the “Everyday Low Prices” you’ve come to know and love. Plus, the smells are nothing to scoff at- from geranium vanilla to mandarin sandalwood and even free & clear, there’s a scent (or a no-scent) for everyone. Laundry detergent? Check. Dishwashing liquid? Check. Granite, wood, and tile cleaners? Check- 7th Gen has you covered.

Of course you can’t clean with sprays and suds alone; you’ll need some scrubbies, sponges, and squeegees to make your life easier. Luckily, we’re well stocked with Full Circle and Casabella products that are sure to brighten your day and your home. Full Circle makes dish brushes, grout scrubbers, compost pails, and more made of sustainably sourced materials in a rainbow of fun colors. They’ve bridged the gap between classy and conscious to bring a line of functional, fabulous household goods to the people!

And if you dread doing the dishes, Casabella has something for you – it’s called the sparkle sponge and it’s the cutest darn thing you could possibly put next to your sink. Woven into the non-stick and porcelain-friendly scrubbing layer are sparkly, iridescent strands that catch the light and make you forget you’re doing the dishes. They get rid of grime while putting a smile on your face…what’s not to love?

Leap into spring cleaning with HL and you’ll be amazed at how quick and easy it is to give your house that fresh smell and sparkle.
