The big what? Spring cleaning?

15 May 2022

When it comes to cleaning, there are usually two camps: the great procrastinators and the soap addicts. Whether you belong to one or the other, you can’t deny the reality that spring cleaning is back!   


If you’re one of those people who find it boring to dabble in the house, then be surprised to learn that cleaning is good for your mental health! In fact, British studies have shown that 20 minutes of cleaning per week can reduce the risk of stress and anxiety by up to 20%. Not only does a clean and airy house make you feel balanced and good, but doing manual tasks is also extremely beneficial to our level of personal satisfaction. In other words, washing objects or rooms in the house by yourself would contribute to increase the production of endorphins, the happiness hormone.   


Now that the temptation to arm yourself with good cleaning products is upon you, here are the benefits of equipping yourself in an eco-friendly way:   


  • Using ultra-concentrated bulk products saves you time and money! As a comparison, a popular brand of laundry detergent has a per load cost of $0.11. You’ll need to use at least 40 mL of product. In bulk, homemade products such as the Bonheur Essentiel line cost $0.13 per load, but you only need 25 mL! That’s almost 2 loads for the price of one! As a bonus, these products leave no residue on your clothes, saving you an extra step! 


  • Using dryer balls or dryer sheets is also very beneficial to your wallet. Balls allow your clothes to be separated while tumbling in the dryer, allowing the hot air to circulate better and dry all the pieces faster. Plus, the wool balls can be scented with scent extracts to give your clothes a fabric softener-like scent. Durable and inexpensive, they will save you energy! The sheets provide all the benefits of a dryer sheet to keep your fabrics soft and static free. 


  • Using healthy and natural products is without a doubt the best gift you can give yourself in order to live in a non-chemical and polluting environment. Ingredients as simple and inexpensive as baking soda, sodium percarbonate, white vinegar, lemon or even coffee grounds work miracles when it comes to removing stubborn stains, degreasing surfaces and deodorizing the fridge! 


With so many savings in your pocket, time saved and an environmental conscience fulfilled, cleaning up has never been so pleasant 😉
