Nontoxic Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring awakens nature and our desire for a fresh start. It's the perfect time for a spring cleaning – a chance to banish winter blues and revitalize your home! But harsh chemicals can leave you with more than just a clean space.

This year, embrace a natural home refresh. Our guide unlocks the secrets to a non-toxic cleaning routine using everyday household items. Breathe easy, create a healthy environment, and discover the perfect finishing touch with our non-toxic, plant-based candles. Let's get started!


Best clean candles for home

Quick & Easy Wins (Under 1 Hour):

  • Declutter surfaces: Clear countertops, tables, and shelves. Donate unused items that are in good condition to keep them out of the landfill and recycle whenever possible. A clutter-free space feels instantly refreshed.
  • Wash windows: Let the sunshine in! Sparkling windows brighten your entire home. For a nontoxic, DIY cleanser, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with a cup of water in a spray bottle. Lemon juice is a natural disinfectant with a fresh scent. Use this solution to clean glass surfaces and buff dry with a microfiber cloth.
  • Deep clean floors: Sweep, mop, or vacuum carpets and rugs using natural cleaning solutions like vinegar and water. Consider adding a few drops of essential oil (like lavender or lemon) for a natural scent boost.
  • Freshen fabrics: Toss throw pillows and blankets in the wash. Skip the harsh fabric softeners and embrace the natural scent of fresh laundry.

Deep Cleaning Delights (Plan for an Afternoon):

  • Appliance Refresh: Clean your oven, microwave, and fridge using baking soda, vinegar, and lemon juice. Tackle those greasy spills and lingering odors naturally.
  • Bathroom Bliss: Scrub showers, sinks, and toilets with a homemade cleaning solution made with white vinegar, water, and essential oils. Light a non-toxic, plant-based candle (think clean citrus or calming lavender scents) while you work to create a more inviting atmosphere. Breathe easy knowing the air is free of harsh chemical fumes.
  • Dust, Don't Despair: Reach for those high shelves and cobweb corners. Dust blinds, furniture, and electronics with a damp microfiber cloth. Imagine the relief of breathing in fresh, dust-free air.

Often-Forgotten Gems (Make a Big Impact):

  • Light Fixture Love: Remove dust and grime from chandeliers, lamps, and ceiling fans. A brighter light fixture can make a surprising difference, especially in rooms that tend to feel dark or don't have windows.
  • Don't Forget the Doors: Wipe down fingerprints and smudges on doors and door handles with a natural cleaning solution.
  • Baseboard Buddies: Vacuum or wipe down baseboards with a solution of water and a gentle soap. This eliminates dust bunnies and leaves your space feeling polished.
