Our March Newsletter

I was going to make this newsletter ode to all things blue (keeping with my color themes) but decided to switch it up a bit.  In January I got new floors in my living and dining room which meant I had to take EVERYTHING out!!!!  This was no small feat. But I actually loved the process of reviewing what I had and what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to let go of.  Now everything feels fresh and clean and new.  Just like spring! Which brings me to this months newsletter - spring cleaning.
It's the whole renewal of life in the springtime thing and it is REAL!

We have lots of products in store to make cleaning a beautiful part of your day (seriously).
One of the things I am most excited about are these totally green Nellie's cleaning products we brought in from a great woman owned business in Canada. We have laundry products including stain remover, dryer balls, and soap and an all in one soap plus tile cleaner. Still haven't had a chance to try them out but the reviews have been good so far.

And here is one of my all time fave cleaning products. I use it on my cutting boards, wooden spoons, and salad bowls.  Christopher Pourny is a high end furniture restorer in NYC who, over years, developed his own formulas for taking care of wood products..  I try to make his tonic a monthly ritual in my kitchen.  It's totally non toxic and your spoons will thank you.

And here's  an oldie but a goodie when it comes to the cleaning section of your home. This fir grapefruit scent is IMO the way you want things to smell when you're cleaning. I just can't get enough of it. In addition to the room spray they have hand soap, room spray, and surface cleaner.  Once you're hooked, there's no going back.

And finally spring cleaning can also be a little bit about throwing off the winter sluggishness and breaking down all those fatty foods we've been eating all winter.  For me it's green nettles! This fun, new book breaks nutrition down for health and beauty. It's pretty inspiring and highly recommended.

And if picking nettles isn't your thing, might we suggest these awesome fire ciders from Mind your Manna in Portland? They pack a real bite and are perfect for a spring cleanse. Happy Spring and Happy Cleaning.
