The Best DIY Cleaning Tips for the Fall 

With the shorter days and colder nights it’s understandable that your energy may be a little lower than in the months that preceeded us. The days are short, the colours are spectacular and somehow everything just gets a little dirtier.

Here’s a quick, healthy list of DIY cleaning tips for you to get through this beautiful season.

1. No one likes a smelly garburator. Fix that by throwing in homemade frozen tablets of sliced lemons, limes and vinegar. Natural and refreshing, plus the ice sharpens your blades.

2. Having trouble cleaning your shower head? Fill a baggie of vinegar and lemon essential oil, strap it over the shower head and let it soak overnight. In the morning, you won’t believe that shine.

3. Want to save time, money and the earth? Stop dividing your laundry by colour and use only cold water. Cold water saves your fabric, prevents bleeding, and saves 75% of the energy that a warm wash uses.
