Get Rid Of Unwanted Belongings

Spring cleaning is a great way to ensure that your home is truly clean and clutter-free. One of the biggest parts of spring cleaning has to do with parting with some of your unwanted belongings. Whether this means going through your closet and getting rid of clothes that you no longer wear, trying to trim down your book collection, or having your children do the same with their own toys and other belongings, there’s no need to keep things that aren’t being used. Not only do they take up space in your home, but they could just as well be put to good use by someone else.

Throwing items away is really only necessary if they are rendered useless. Broken toys, ripped clothing and damaged books are likely good items to throw away or recycle, but if an item is in usable condition, there’s no need to make waste of something that still has life left in it. Thrift stores are a great way to get rid of unwanted belongings while also being environmentally friendly. Not only will your items be supporting a good cause, but they’ll also find new life in the hands of another person. Instead of simply throwing them away or leaving them in your home unused, donating them to a thrift store is a much more environmentally-friendly alternative to simply throwing them out.

Additionally, used book stores are also a great resource for those of you with larger collections of books in your home. Taking your unwanted books to your local used book store is another great eco-friendly alternative to simply throwing them away, and you can make a little money in the process.

Use Natural Cleaning Products

While we have talked about the benefits of using natural cleaning products before, if you’re looking to clean your home in a way that is more environmentally friendly, cutting out harsh chemicals and synthetic cleaners is the way to go. In using powerful ingredients like lemon, vinegar, borax and baking soda, you’ll achieve the same level of clean that you did with synthetic products, but without all the chemicals being released into your home’s air supply.

Invest In A Whole House Air Purification System

With spring also comes spring allergies, and cleaning a home can sometimes make indoor allergies worse. Using natural cleaning products can certainly help aid in the reduction of indoor allergies, but if you want your home be truly clean, investing in a whole house air purification system is a smart move. Rather than using harsh chemicals to kill off germs and bacteria, the whole house air purification systems from Eco Probiotic Systems use the power of probiotics to remove dust mites, allergens and pet dander from your home’s air supply, leaving you with air that’s clean, fresh, and safe for the entire family. A whole house air purification system can leave your home feeling cleaner than it ever has this spring, with air that’s truly clean and free of impurities.
