Why Use All Natural Cleaners--It's a Matter of Trust!

Which of the following pairs of items would you consider to be healthier?

One apple or a container of applesauce

French fries or a baked potato

Scalloped potatoes made by hand or a store bought box of scalloped potatoes

Butter or margarine

Pretty easy, right?  The closer an item is to its original state of being, the healthier it is for you. Take that one step further and the argument could go:  one organic apple vs. one non-organic apple.

Now, what does this have to do with cleaning products?

Make Spring Cleaning a Launching Project

Are thoughts of summer vacations, rooms to remodel, places to visit dancing in your head?  Move those thoughts from your head into a project list and seriously work through the viability of doing those things.  Some of us spend more time thinking and dreaming instead of acting on those dreams or projects. 
Let Spring Cleaning be a launching project from which you model how to plan and organize other things you want to accomplish, but never seem to get around doing.  Turning your spring cleaning project into a time-ordered task may give you the boost you need to order other projects you would like to accomplish but don't know where to begin.
Hello, I'm Brenda and I write for Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Cleaners. As a busy mom and professional, I have found it helpful when tackling a project to set a target date for when I want to be FINISHED.  No, I don't set a BEGINNING date; but a FINISH BY or DUE DATE—so to speak.  If I had a ''starting date," I may drag on my project too long.  It is more helpful for me to have a "due date," to keep me motivated and on target.

My daughter asked me this morning, "Mom, when are we going to start spring cleaning?"  I told her after I finished my current project due this upcoming Monday, then we would plan for our spring cleaning.  I know for myself that taking on too many projects at once will result in nothing getting done, or not done well.  

You know yourself, pace yourself.  Look at your calendar and set the "finished by date" for your spring cleaning and other projects in a timely sequence.  Allow breathing room—margins in your life too! 
Green cleaning is a part of living green.  Living green is also about enjoying life, keeping things simple where we can and pacing ourselves.  There is a rhythm to life that is freeing when we find it! 

For you, maybe you won't consider green spring cleaning until after your children's spring break.  No problem.  When you get back, then consider when you want to tackle spring cleaning and set a target "finish-by date."  Be sure to order Harmony Aromatherapy products shortly after setting your date so that when you begin to clean, you have everything you need to get started!

Consider the following tips for spring clean sanity…

Plan your spring clean:

You know your time constraints: Consider how much time per week you can give toward spring cleaning and then make your schedule. Maybe you are the kind of person who wants to get it all done in a weekend—knock yourself out!  However you choose to tackle this year's spring clean, start with a plan and follow through.
