Yes, I do travel!
My wedding was so magical and beautiful. Laura's services allowed me to plan my wedding but prevented me from becoming a "superbride". My wedding day was stress free and I was able to focus my attention on my guests and, of course, my new husband. Thank you so much Laura. I honestly do not know what I would have without you.

Why CLEAN in the SPRING?

Protect your health & get a fresh start!

 

Deep cleaning after a long winter is essential to health and happiness.

1.     The warm moistness of winter creates prime breeding grounds for mold & mildew to grow. Zapping it as soon as possible will improve your health as well as your home. (Scroll down for Natural Cleaning Made Easy. Learn to make your own cleaners!)

 

2.  While spiders are excellent free pest control, I still do Bi-yearly spider eradication.  Mason jars with flat lids work great for capture & release! 

 

3.  Germs build up on surfaces, especially after the cold & flu season! Cleaning and disinfecting can be simple, smell good and not harm the environment! Thyme essential oil is a wonderful disinfectant (see next article).

 

4.  It is also a good time to vacuum out your heater vents to prevent dust & germs from being re-circulated and trapped in your home. If your heater has a filter it is a good time to check and change that too!

 

5. Cleaning your refrigerator and dryer vents can save you money and electricity.

Natural Cleaning Made Easy

 

Mold and mildew eradicator:

 

        Use soap, water and a stiff brush on the surface to be cleaned.

        Follow up with a generous spray or sponge full of undiluted Vinegar.  

        Scrub the vinegar in with your brush.

        Allow the surface to dry completely.

        Repeat if necessary.

 

DID YOU KNOW?!

According to Dirtdoctor.com "Heinz company spokesperson Michael Mullen references numerous studies to show that a straight 5 percent solution of vinegar-such as you can buy in the supermarket-kills 99 percent of bacteria, 82 percent of mold, and 80 percent of germs (viruses). He noted that Heinz can't claim on their packaging that vinegar is a disinfectant since the company has not registered it as a pesticide with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). However, it seems to be common knowledge in the industry that vinegar is powerfully antibacterial. Even the CBS news show 48 Hours had a special last December with Heloise reporting on tests from The Good Housekeeping Institute that showed this."

 

 

Thyme Disinfectant Spray:

 

        Fill a spray bottle with 1/4 water and 3/4 vinegar

        Add 15-20 drops of Thyme essential oil

        Spray hard surfaces like countertops, sinks, toilets, tile, etc.

        Let sit 5-10 minutes

        Wipe to dry

The essential oil of thyme contains thymol, a natural crystalline phenol that has powerful and proven disinfectant properties. It has been proven to kill common germs around the house that cause serious illnesses for humans and pets. Research shows that thymol is at least 18 times as effective as phenol (the most common commercial germicide), but has much lower toxicity.

 

Salt Scour:

 

1 cup sea salt

1 cup baking soda

1 cup soap (We like Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap)

 
Form a paste and use to scour stubborn stains on tile, sinks, tubs and more.
