Norwex Spring Cleaning Checklist & Tips!
I love this time of year when the air is fresh, flowers in bloom and sunshine is warm! It also means Spring Cleaning time!
CLICK HERE for a Norwex Spring Cleaning Checklist to help you NAIL Spring Cleaning this year!
Lists always help me be more productive, plus there’s just something therapeutic about checking things off! There’s nothing like the feeling of that thoroughly cleaned home! Spring cleaning is also the perfect time to declutter and simplify! If you come across things that you haven’t used for a while, consider if they should be put into the DONATE pile, a pile to SELL on Facebook Marketplace or the TRASH pile.
