Spring Cleaning Tips

Terri Trespicio doesn’t feel that spring cleaning should be a task that you need to dread.  Here are some of the cleaning tips that she shared with Dr. Oz on today’s show.

Set A Timer and Get Cleaning

Set A Timer – Many people really want to get their spring cleaning started but they just don’t know where to start.  There are so many places that may have collected dust and who knows what else over the long winter.  Terri made a great suggestion to Dr. Oz about setting a timer.  She suggested setting a timer for 10 minutes and clean as much as you can.  You will be amazed at how much you accomplished when you put on the clock.

Get Rid Of Your Old Sponge – If you don’t remember the last time you last changed your sponge you should throw it out and use a new one.  She also suggested using old that you can throw in the wash.

Take Off Your Shoes – Taking off your shoes at the door does more than just de-clutter your home and keep you from tracking dirt on the carpet.  Your shoes carry in germs and bacteria so it’s best to leave them at the door for that reason as well.

Best Non Toxic Cleaning Products

Many cleaning products contain chemicals that aren’t healthy for you or your family.  Terri Trespicio suggested to Dr. Oz that people buy cleaning products that are natural and non toxic.  She said to look for cleaning products that list the ingredients on their labels.  Here are non toxic cleaning products that Terri suggested on today’s show.

  • Method Dish Soap
  • Method Toilet Cleaner
  • J.R. Watkins All Purpose Cleaner
  • Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent
