Saturday Sampler: Spring Cleaning edition

Spring is in the air--finally! While last year we had 4 days over 80 degrees by April (crazy), this year spring seems reluctant to show up--I think we hit 60 one day, and that's about it. Still, the flowers are blooming, the air smells fresh, and it makes me want to spruce things up. In reality, of course, I can barely manage to shower most days, but I'm storing these ideas away until I have the free time to freshen up our home.

You can't get started without some dishcloths. May as well use some cute ones.

How about some towels too?

Scrubbie mitts! A must have!

OK, now that you've procrastinated by knitting a bunch of stuff, on to the actual cleaning!

Get that washing machine clean for fresh smelling clothes.

I feel like our shower could always be cleaner.

Try your hand at homemade cleaners.
