ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With more than 72 percent of households spring cleaning every year (source: American Cleaning Institute), EnviroScent wants homeowners to know that the cleaning process is not complete until the air is fresh and free of toxins. As the producers of new-to-the-market home fragrance products that are free of solvents and other harmful chemicals, this environmentally conscious company wants you to think beyond just vacuuming when sprucing up for spring, and has a few tips for making this year’s spring-cleaning efforts even more effective.
“Spring is the perfect time to freshen things up,” said EnviroScent Lifestyle Expert Shana King. “At EnviroScent, we spend all year thinking about how to deliver fragrances that are better for you and for the environment while keeping your home smelling fresh and clean. We hope these tips guide you to a successful spring-cleaning season.”
Don’t feel pressure to finish the whole house in just one day. To get started, focus on one room, closet, or even just a drawer or cabinet. By picking a small, more manageable task or a string of small, manageable tasks, it’s easier to feel a sense of accomplishment. For example, start by cleaning out a sock drawer, and once that is finished, clean out another drawer. In no time, a whole dresser will be reorganized.
This same concept can apply to making better choices for you and your family. Countless studies have shown the harmful environmental effects of chemicals in many home cleaning products, but the task of throwing out a collection of cleaning products can seem daunting – not to mention expensive. Try switching out one product at a time for a more family-friendly alternative like EnviroScent BurstsTM, which contain 100 percent fragrance and no harmful chemicals. Each Burst lasts 64 hours – more than twice the duration of traditional wax melts. EnviroScent Bursts work in most electric warmers and they do not melt, providing a safer alternative to the hot wax created by wax melts. Bursts are available in four vivid fragrances – Wild Lavender, Paradise Breeze, True Cotton and Amber Woods.
Care for the Car
Don’t limit spring-cleaning efforts to just the home. On average, Americans spend 101 minutes a day in their cars, according to a study by the Harvard Health Watch. Spring is a great time to give cars a spruce-up and get them ready for those warm-weather road trips. Start with the interior – remove the trash and gather those winter-weather items, like that ice scraper, that are no longer necessary. Store those and any other loose items in compartments or side pockets. A wipe-down of the dashboard and quick vacuum of all the seats and carpets can do wonders for even the most overused interiors.
Finally, replace your current car air freshener with EnviroScent AutoSticks®. From traffic exhaust to gas fumes and road construction dust, commuters are exposed to hundreds of air pollutants and toxins while driving, not to mention unpleasant smells. AutoSticks are a versatile, unobtrusive way to freshen up the air in the car, and they come in four fragrances, including Seaside Coconut, Coastal Storm, Rain Forest and Showroom.
Don’t Forget About the Air
When it comes to spring cleaning, the air needs some love too. According to a study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside homes is typically more polluted than the air outside. When freshening up living spaces, try adding an indoor plant, and remember to clean air filters every three months. Opening windows to increase cross-ventilation can quickly remedy stagnant air inside a house or apartment.
Another way to clean up the air is by switching to a solvent-free air freshener like EnviroScent Bed & Bath SticksTM. Free from chemical solvents, phthalates, carcinogens and PBTs (persistent, bioaccumulative toxins), Bed & Bath Sticks provide long-lasting, vivid fragrance without the help of unnecessary fillers.
EnviroScent products include EnviroScent Bursts, EnviroScent AutoSticks and EnviroScent Bed & Bath Sticks, and all are no-mess home fragrance alternatives that contain no solvents or harmful chemicals. Unlike traditional home fragrance products, EnviroScent uses a patented technology that diffuses the purest fragrance oils slowly over time without the use of solvents, diluents or other chemical fillers. The result is fragrances that are more intense, smell better, and last longer. They can now be found in the home fragrance section of H-E-B and online at EnviroScent.com.
