Spring is here!  Open the windows and doors!  Ride your bike!  Clean the house!

Okay, so I know not everyone will get as excited about spring cleaning as I will, but I can’t help it.  It’s one of my favourite things to do.  I love how bright and fresh the house is after I’m done, and I love that after six months of winter and being shut inside, I can finally open the windows and clear out the dust!


Could I use more exclamations marks in this post?!  Yes!

I make all my home cleaning products.  Here’s my favourite for cleaning walls.


1/4 cup washing soda

1/4 white vinegar

1/2 cup ammonia

3 litres of warm water

Put all in a bucket and wash away.  No rinsing necessary.  I use a cloth mop head to wash walls because I’m vertically challenged (i.e. short), and I hate climbing up and down footstools.

Happy cleaning!
