Spring Cleaning

March has finally arrived!  Spring Cleaning will soon be upon us.  To avoid a nose-full of crazy chemicals, while you tackle your chore list, I have created 3 simple ‘Habitat at Home’ NATURAL cleaner recipes for you; plus a nice room spray to use at the end. They are all very effective and safe.

To supplement the cleaners, I have also created a new way to keep to that chore list.  A list you cannot escape.  A list you will encounter every time you go to grab the bucket under the sink.  It will be there, staring you in the face, as a helpful reminder until it’s complete!  
 
I present to you, The Spring Cleaning ‘Bucket List’, complete with your own homemade, safe and natural cleaners:

How to Make Age Spot Remover & Make-up Remover that Work!

These two homemade beauty treatments are both incredibly easy and effective.  It has been a harsh winter here at our ‘Habitat at Home’, and we long for spring to come. I’ve decided to start indulging my skin in anticipation of warmer days.  So far, I am extremely pleased with the results! 
 

I began by researching the many different ways one can make these concoctions.  I then took all my favorite attributes, based on efficacy, smell, texture and healing properties; then created my own. I started with the homemade age spot remover and homemade make-up remover, as these are two of the top things that I have been longing for good solutions to.  I will roll out a few more homemade beauty treatments, in the next few days.  Happily tried and tested!!

Chickpea Salad

My impatience for summer days to come, has led me to create this bright, summer chickpea salad, using ingredients that can be found in winter. This salad can be a vegan lunch, or side to a protein.  Feta cheese would also go very well.  It can be made quickly and easily in any season.
