Spring Cleaning on the Brain

It's March 1st, so spring is officially only a few short weeks away.  Today was a nice, sunny day, and it makes me want to begin spring cleaning!  Where to even start?  Today I shampooed our carpets upstairs.  Yesterday, I washed all of our bedding in our bedroom and the guest room, including duvet covers, shams, blankets, pillow protectors, you name it.  I've found that adding a scoop of baking soda to the wash makes things come out so much fresher when I wash them.  I'm also a huge fan of Oxy Clean.  For each load of wash that I do, I put in half a scoop of Oxy Clean and 3/4 of a scoop of baking soda.  I just pick up the huge containers of both at Costco.  You can do so many things with baking soda, so I don't think you can ever have too much on hand.
