After a long winter, it’s safe to say that most of us welcome spring in like an old friend. Winter, on the other hand, has become a bit of an unwanted houseguest who just doesn’t know when they’ve overstayed their welcome—case in point, as I sat down to write this roundup, it started snowing.
I’m so ready for spring.
And even as I write that, I know that spring means a whole different kind of work. Rather than worrying about the cold, I’ll be worrying about the rain, or the mud, or all that sand. Spring cleaning takes on new meaning with sweeping the floors twice daily to keep up! But, on the bright side—literally—warm weather is coming! So we’ll gladly make a tradeoff for a bit more sweeping if it means warm weather is well on its way!
Luckily, when it comes to spring cleaning, we have some great resources to get your started! Dealing with allergies, pet-friendly cleaning supplies, and of course keeping that pup clean! We have it all, and we’ll continue building on it more in the coming weeks!
Last year, Lucy put together a great 4-part Spring Cleaning series that you should definitely check out
Dealing with Allergies
For allergy sufferers, it’s nice to see winter go, but spring can bring on a whole new set of problems.
Pet Friendly Cleaning Supplies
We make every effort to stock our shelves with effective products that are also safe for our pets—whether that’s a do-it-yourself approach, or purchasing from brands who align with our values.
Tips, Tricks, and Reminders
It’s always the little things that end up making the biggest difference. A change in routine, a quick clean here.. and suddenly, you’re home is fresh, airy, and clean! Bonus: have you ever tried a simmer pot to make your house smell fresh? It’s fantastic!
Washing Your Dog
Ah, the culprit of that musky dog smell. Spring tends to exacerbate the issue with all the sand and mud they collect from a simple walk in the yard, nevermind around the block!
Bonus: DIY Muddy Puppy Mitt
Leave this mitt by the front door and clean those dirty paws before they have time to track mud, dirt, and sand all over your home!
Keep in mind that now is a great time to schedule an appointment with your dog groomer if you have a long-haired dog! They won’t need that winter coat any longer, and the shorter it is, the less dirt and mud it’ll pick up from the yard and sidewalk! A great idea if you also plan on kicking off this spring by running with your dog (you may need some gear for that!) and want less of a hassle. Once your pup is coiffed, you should be ready to enjoy the day!
What about you guys? Any springtime preparations going on in your home?
