Still Spring At My House

I may not be hip deep in gardening but I am still plugging away on spring cleaning chores. Just little things like wiping the cabinets out  on the inside and checking all of my stored dry goods. I rarely get pantry pests because I try to freeze all my dry goods for a week before it ever goes into containers to kill any eggs that might be lurking. I still try to check everything a couple times a year dusting and wiping off containers and watching for anything. 

All the spice containers are refilled with fresh spices. 

The wooden spoons are oiled with a combination of beeswax and mineral oil that I make. This spoon wax works great for wood and helps to prolong the life of these spoons that get used almost everyday. 

All these small projects get tucked into the spare moments of my days but add up to a well maintained and clean home. When I was younger I was able to do all my spring cleaning in a week or so. Now I just break it down to small increments everyday over a span of a couple of weeks. I do the same things it just takes me a little longer to get them done.    

Anyone else out there getting any spring cleaning done?

  1. I oil my wooden spoons but had never thought to use beeswax with the oil. I'm going to try that today. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I am attempting to spring clean but as the only female in a house of men they are grubbying everything up right behind me. Grrr. I mean, I love my boys :)

  3. I do the same thing.. a little bit at a time... I even do walls a little bit at a time.. haha.. I did the south facing windowns a week or two ago.. and then had to go out of town. ;) I'll continue on when I get home. :)

  4. I've been spring cleaning since January,I start early and do a little at a time like you.
