5 simple steps to detox your home
It happens every year, spring has supposedly sprung, but those last few weeks of winter just seem to cling on, keeping us cooped up inside. But, honestly, spring is just around the corner, and we can say with conviction we are looking forward to leaving the cooler days and longer nights behind us!
Eager to get out and about and freshen up our homes, it might be too soon to consider the big spring clean…but in the meantime, we’ve been mulling over a few smaller steps we can all take to refresh and detox our homes!
We love simple changes that offer a healthier way of living, from removing chemicals from your cleaning routine, to removing your shoes – our top five tips will cleanse and detox your home in time for spring.
1. Throw open those windows
Yes, we know, it’s been cold(!) and opening the windows might not sound all that appealing, but with chemicals and synthetic materials taking up residence in everyday items found all over the home, it’s not really surprising that indoor air tends to be more polluted. So throw on a jumper, bite the bullet, and let the clean air circulate for healthier indoor spaces.
2. Bring the outdoors in
We’re not all naturals when it comes to gardening, but with many indoor plants offering chemical-filtering and detoxifying benefits, bringing the outdoors in is a great way to refresh the air in your home. Click through to read all about our favourite pretty and powerful plants, there’s sure to be one you’ll love for clean air and a healthier home.
3. Take em’ off
Your shoes that is! If you actually stopped to think about where you and your family had traipsed around all day…the ‘take your shoes off in the house’ rule would probably already be in place. Plus, hallways are what shoe storage was made for – so slip them off, relax, and enjoy cleaner floors throughout your home.
4. Join our club
We know better than most that the leading cause of chemical exposure happens in the home when we’re cleaning and trying to make our homes a safer place. The solution is quite simple, clean your home chemical-free and switch to ENJO fibre cleaning technology, removing dirt and bacteria more effectively with a simple, wet, wipe and dry – your home will be a cleaner and healthier place to be.
5. Let there be light
We’re lucky we don’t have to deal with dark and gloomy days all too often, but after the winter months, it’s time to throw open the blinds and let the natural light stream in. With so many benefits to our wellbeing, natural light is good for the home too, acting as a mood enhancer and natural antiseptic.
