Spring Clean

Today officially marks the first day of Spring, and I couldn’t be happier. I love the lighter evenings, the blue skies and sun with just a little chill in the air. Spring flowers are also my favourite; we cannot wait to get out onto our little patio and get green-fingered again!

At this time of year, I also do a big Spring clean. I go through all my winter wardrobe and bag up the clothes I didn’t wear or no longer want and take them off to the charity shop. I do a big clear out of all the clutter accumulated in the past six months, leaving my flat feeling fresh and spacious.

After my big clear out, I go on a cleaning frenzy. I have quite a good cleaning routine at home but after a big declutter of my life, having a good old cleaning session is the icing on the cake, and I thought I’d take the time to let you know what cleaning products I have been using recently. I am trying to do my bit for the environment and be as eco-friendly as possible with my cleaning and laundry products, a lot of these are new, but I’ve found they work just as well so without further ado …

Eco Active Bathroom Cleaner
I use this product to wipe over all my tiles, skirting boards and to clean the bath, sink and toilet.

Eco Active Shower Spray
I love this product because there is no need to wipe down after you’ve sprayed the screen, just let it dry naturally!

Ecover Limescale Remover
I use this product for stubborn limescale problems, especially in the shower!

Eco Active Toilet Cleaner
I find that toilet cleaners contain a lot of bleach and strong-smelling chemicals. This one smells divine – for a toilet cleaner.

Duck Fresh Discs
A new favourite of mine and it’s so easy to use! This keeps my toilet smelling fresh after flushing; my go-to scents are Marine and Lime Zest.

Eco Active Kitchen Cleaner
I use this product everywhere! On all my tiles, surfaces, cupboards, fridge freezer, microwave … you name it!

Once the surfaces are cleaned with the kitchen cleaner, I use Zoflora as a disinfect layer over the top. The available scents are all amazing; my personal favourites are Lemon  Zing and Linen Fresh.
Cif Perfect Finish Stainless Steel
This product has changed my life, my sink and taps were always left grubby no matter how hard I scrubbed. A few sprays of this and wipe down, my sink is left sparkling!

Mr Muscle Drain Foamer
Used in the kitchen and bathroom, it works wonders to clean out hair and gunge!Living RoomAstonish Floor Cleaner
I pop a capful of this along with water in my steam cleaner, and it works wonders my favourite scent is Orchard Blossom, but I love Cotton Breeze as well.Method Multi-Surface Cleaner
I use this product everywhere; to wipe down shelves, ornaments, windowsills, the table. I use the Pink Grapefruit scent, but again there is a range to choose from.

Ecover Window & Glass Cleaner
This has a great smell and is used to clean windows and glass, but I use it on my TV and various screens around the house as well as my photo frames.
Fabric Freshener

Thanks to Mrs Hinch, I now make my fabric freshener. I use a capful of my favourite fabric conditioner in an empty bottle and top up with water. I find it lasts a lot longer than branded fabric freshener, and I love the smell!

Glade Shake n’ Vac
I only have carpet in the two bedrooms so once a week I use this, and it leaves a lovely scent.

1001 Carpet Fresh
Once a week I spray this over the carpet and leave it to dry – literally seconds. It refreshes and gives the room a boost of scent.

Febreze Air Freshener
My favourite scent is Vanilla Latte – typically a seasonal scent, I can sometimes pick this up throughout the year in shops.

I hope this post is somewhat interesting, I know it’s a little different to my usual posts, but I love learning about new products! Please let me know if there are other products I should try!
