To boost my mood while cleaning, I have a simple ritual that I follow. I open the windows to let some fresh air in, I play happy music to sing along to and I simmer a pot of potpourri.
Homemade potpourri will freshen your house!
It makes my house smell so clean.
A handful of dried lavender buds
A few sprigs of fresh rosemary
A few star anise pods
Two teaspoons of lemon extract
and Two cups of water
Toss it all in a saucepan and let it simmer on the stove. Be sure to add more water as the water boils down. Once I'm through cleaning, I refrigerate the leftovers and reuse it the next day.
How do you happily clean your house? It's best to try and enjoy it since it's something that we have to do!
