The thermometer read 70 degrees today and we grilled out for the first time this year. This can only mean one thing...the first day of spring is tomorrow! With warm weather ahead, now is the perfect time got get out of that winter rut you've been in and embrace the season up ahead. Spring is such a beautiful season with flowers blooming, fresh air circulating and sun-filled days. It's also the perfect time to begin your spring cleaning regimen!
If you just sighed after reading that last sentence, you aren't alone. Spring cleaning is something we all look forward to, (everyone loves a clean house), but also dread as we simply have no idea where to start, who will do what and we fear that some of our small projects will turn into larger everlasting projects.
Believe it or not, there are hundreds of websites out there that give you free downloadable checklists that you can print off to begin your spring cleaning! My favorite checklist was featured on lilblueboo.com, which offered a great checklist which includes everything from changing your filters and bed sheets to cleaning behind the washer, dryer, windowsills, rotating mattresses and self-cleaning your oven.

Once you have your list and you're ready to start planning your own spring cleaning regimen, don't forget to stock up on plenty of GreenShield Organic cleaning products. Especially with asking your children and family members for help, you'll want to make sure that they don't come into contact with any harsh bleaches, fragrances or harmful chemicals. As you'll likely be cleaning your entire household, it is important to protect your pets as well. GreenShield Organic offers you a complete line of organic bathroom cleaners, organic surface wipes, carpet spot cleaners, laundry detergents and organic kitchen cleaners.
The key to spring cleaning is dividing up the tasks among each family member, staying organized and having a checklist so that you can see your progress as you complete each task on the list. Be sure to treat everyone to a dinner out, a family game of catch or ice cream when they are finished.
