We're not going to hide it, the arrival of spring and therefore of the good weather is something to be excited about. It's also a good time to do some spring cleaning and start a zero waste approach.
How to do spring cleaning?
Spring cleaning is the perfect time to de-clutter your home, sort out your belongings, get better organised and change your habits.
As well as doing your home a favour, it can be a great way to clear your head and get ready for the new season and the next few days.
To start spring cleaning, it is important to establish an organisation of tasks.
Before starting to clean, it is important to start by sorting out your cupboards. How do you do this? By starting room by room. For example, start with the bedroom and your dressing room. Make piles of the things you want to :
Then move on to your kitchen and work in stages. Select what you want to keep or give away. The same goes for the rest of your home. Don't throw away what you don't use anymore, recycle or donate it. In this way, you will gradually start to take a more responsible approach.
2/ Use zero waste cleaning products
A good zero waste spring cleaning, of course, requires the use of natural and ecological cleaning products.
You can either buy natural products in supermarkets or simply make them yourself. In general, you only need a few ingredients to make recipes for household products.
The products to use :
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Green clay
- Vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, etc.)
- Essential oils
- Soda crystals
- Black soap
- Marseille soap
- Cloth towels
- Glass jars and containers
Products to be banned:
- Chemical household products that are harmful to health
- Plastic packaging
With these natural products you can clean your entire house effectively and thoroughly. All this, without damaging your health.
3/ Change your habits
Finally, to continue your zero waste approach, it is important to change your daily habits. Once you have sorted your waste, you can choose reusable accessories and products.
For example, in your kitchen, say goodbye to plastic film and hello to beeswax food packaging. The same goes for the bathroom: forget the classic toothbrush and cotton buds, opt for bamboo toothbrushes or oriculi to clean your ears.
As for your beauty routine, you can also change your habits by using reusable make-up removal pads. In other words, skip the plastic and opt for natural products that are good for you.
So, are you ready to go?
