ok monday messers and new years cleaners. are you all still in a crazy cleaning and organizing mode? i’m still riding the wave with little pauses here and there. while i’d love to make a total overhaul and rid my house of a quarter of it’s contents, i have 5 others to contend with and they just won’t have it. and while i get rid of some things, someone, or the other, is always bringing in the next thing. i’m resigning to this give and take and hoping that little ones are watching and picking up on this process of giving, organizing, and mindfulness, and that perhaps as they each get older and there will be more of an effort to continue this ritual as well as buying only quality things and in which you love and, of course, need.
but back to the cleaning. do you use all green products? i don’t. i should but i don’t. where i live there aren’t a lot of great options. and truth be told, some traditional products just work better. but this year, i’m going to try to change up my arsenal. since i’m always looking for resources on anything and everything, i came across this cleaning post on Rip + Tan (a new go to, for me, thank you joslyn) which is a great starting point and reference. i thought you might love it just as much as i did. and holy cow… if i could only buy gorgeous cleaning utensils like that (pictured above).
you can see the rest of jenni kayne’s (Rip + Tan) overly awesome organized home, right here.
so do you use all natural cleaning products? and do you have any favorites. one of my favorites (as pictured in jenni’s post is bar keepers friend).
and on the subject of monday mess, i’ll be starting back up in the next month or so featuring other people’s messes again. so stay tuned!
