After a particularly hot summer, I’m a big fan of the cooler temps and rain we had today. Outside, the world felt clean and refreshed which inspired me to bring that sense of renewal into my home.
Fall is a great time for a reset – taking care of the little things you may have overlooked in the excitement of summer. With jobs and back-to-school, it’s a wonderful time to re-organize. This will also put you on track for the upcoming holiday season which can get chaotic.
Here are some tips!
I love to start in my kitchen. I cook a lot more in the Fall and Winter and a clean kitchen inspires my creativity!
Start with the fridge. It can get cluttered and may even be the source of some unidentifiable stink! Take out all the food and drinks so you can really get in there. Take out shelves and drawers and soak them in dish soap and warm water. Wipe the inside with a similar solution and use baking soda for stains. Replace the food that’s good and toss out the questionable. Remember, fresh start!
Clean out your cabinets. Give them a good wash and replace liners. Get rid of anything old and re-organize!
Clean out your closets. Start with the front hall one and work your way up!
Don’t forget your floors!
Did you know that today’s consumer has more hardwood in their home than ever before? An estimated four billion square feet of hard surface flooring will be installed in American homes this year. Finished wood and laminates give your home a wonderful ambience and they are easy to care for. I like to use Swiffer’s newly reformulated WetJet. It’s simple and really spruces up your rooms since the absorb and lock strip helps trap dirt and grime deep in the pad.
New season. Time to clear out old smells!
Your home goes through a lot in the summer, whether from the muggy heat or the AC blasting and windows shut tight. Of course your pets and kids’ parties, family movie and pizza nights all contribute. Febreze Fabric Refresher helps gets the inside of your home as crisp as the Fall weather outside. It eliminates musty odors from your closets and pet smells from your couch. You can also use the new Febreze Air Effects with Big Sur Scent to get rid of any lingering food odors from burnt popcorn or last night’s fish. I found this new scent to be very pleasant, light and fresh with notes of jasmine and cherry.
Give Your Car the Once-over. Febreze car clips refresh your vehicle after a summer of baseball practices, camping trips and food grabbed on the go. To avoid clutter and spills, use a collapsible car organizer in the back seat for toys, water, juice boxes and snacks for your munchkins. (PS: There’s one in the giveaway below!)
Renewing your home renews your spirit, motivates and inspires. Your family will love you for it and you’ll fall in love with your home again!
