Gallery: 5 Ways to kick off your green spring cleaning with feng shui p...


3. Deep Clean the Refrigerator

The refrigerator is an important appliance in your home, and it represents boundaries in life and how you nourish yourself. It’s a good idea to have a well-stocked refrigerator, but not too full and not too empty. Or as we say in Feng Shui, not too yin, and not too yang. With our spring cleaning considerations, it’s opportunity to deep clean and de-cluttter. Empty out the refrigerator and remove anything expired, old and/or spoiled. Spoiled and expired food symbolizes neglect of one’s overall health. If possible compost the organic material, or find a compost drop off location and recycle or reuse the glass and plastic containers. When you clean the interior of the refrigerator, I prefer to use natural non-toxic cleaners such as baking soda to scrub and a mixture of vinegar, water and eucalyptus essential oil to wipe down and disinfect. Then open up a new container of baking soda to absorb any odors in your newly organized and clean refrigerator.

    I liked what you had to say about with opening and cleaning the windows. This is my favorite part of spring cleaning. It seems to make the whole process a lot more bearable to me.
