Ditch chemical-laden air fresheners and cleaning products by embracing the natural power of essential oils. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, such as lavender, tea tree, or eucalyptus, to your DIY cleaning solutions for a delightful fragrance while you clean.

If you have furry friends leaving their mark on your upholstery, ditch the lint roller and reach for rubber gloves. Simply dampen the gloves and run your hands over the pet hair-laden surfaces. The rubber’s friction attracts and clings to the pet hair, making it easy to gather and dispose of.
