Spring Cleaning in Eco-Friendly Ways

Wellness has never been more important than it is today. Living in a tidy and organized home can have a major impact on your emotional and physical health. We have all spent 2020 cooped up at home and many of us have probably let things slip. Let’s make 2021 a fresh start with a great spring cleaning in your 803 Corday Apartment.

The Mental Health Benefits of a Clean Home

There are clear and measurable mental health benefits of a clean home. A clean home relieves stress. Recent studies have shown that people who regularly spend time cleaning their homes are more relaxed and happier than people that don’t. Clean homes boost productivity. Experts agree that keeping your home organized with everything in its place has a significant impact on personal productivity. Clean homes can help you stay active. Studies show that people who spend time cleaning their homes exercise more often than people that don’t.

Ways to Go Green with Your Cleaning Process

Most of us want a clean home without contributing unnecessarily to climate change, so it’s very important that we follow green practices during our spring cleaning. The good news is that there are several easy tips you can follow to do just that. First, since many products are not safe for kids or pets, make sure you are using basic safety when storing and handling cleaning products. With that out of the way, it’s important to target green cleaning products. Baking soda is great as a gritty base for scrubbing. Vinegar is great as a disinfectant and for loosening dirt. Lemon juice is also a powerful disinfectant and it’s excellent with grease. As a pro tip, you can use all three together. Adding lemon or vinegar activates baking soda with a mild acid to really improve its cleaning power.

Local Stores for Cleaning Material or Cleaning Services for Hire

Things are starting to open up in Naperville in 2021! Target and Walmart are chock full of great cleaning materials. Need a hand with your spring cleaning? Check out Two Maids Naperville and their 5 Star Reviews. They are a solid local cleaning service.

Spring 2021 is going to be all about a fresh start, which starts with a clean home. Having a clean home will really help with your mental and emotional health. This year, you can have one without hurting the environment and visiting your local stores will help them get off to a strong start, too. Have a great time making that clean, orderly, and organized house a reality this year!

Looking for something to do this month? Here are some ideas for December events to attend to get you in the holiday spirit.

In Georgetown

Although it might be an hour away, it’s worth it to look into the Christmas events in Georgetown. One is the Georgetown Christmas Market. This outdoor, European-style marketplace is free to get into. It offers horse-drawn rides, hot roasted chestnuts, holiday shopping, and carolers in victorian garb. Even St. Nicholas will be there! It will be held on the first two weekends of December (Dec. 3, 4, 10, & 11) from 10am to 5pm at 6th and Rose St., Georgetown, CO 80444.

In Denver

For another German-style market, look into visiting The Denver Christkindl Market for another “old world” themed village. Not only will there be food and beverage vendors (selling things like roasted nuts and soft pretzels), but also several places you can buy gifts and crafts. The event takes place through Dec. 23 from 11am to 7pm on Sundays through Thursdays, and from 11am to 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Location: 16th & Arapahoe, Denver, CO 80202
