The smell of freshly cut grass can instantly summon thoughts of summer, as can suntan lotion and the whiff of flowers blooming in the yard. Create your own favourite summer scent indoors by using aromatic cleaning products infused with summer scents such as honeysuckle, lemongrass and lilac.
Change up your kitchen linen to bring in that easy breezy feeling of summer. Hummingbirds, bumble bees and sunflowers are a popular motif found on tablecloths, napkins and tea towels. Invoke a tropical theme with woven placemats. And brightly coloured microfibre cloths will add a burst of colour to your cleaning supplies.
Got a green thumb? Make room for a small herb garden on your kitchen windowsill. Basil, parsley, chives and mint grow well indoors and smell great. Whether in clay pots or stainless steel pails, arrange them in a way that they would naturally grow, extending your outdoor garden right into your home. Build on this theme by storing wooden spoons and spatulas in a clean terracotta pot.
While at the beach, create a whimsical knick knack for your countertop. Collect a jar full of shells, colourful beach glass or simply the sand itself as a happy reminder. Nothing is more iconic of summer than a lazy day at the beach!
A bowl of citrus is like sunshine in a bowl! Lemons, limes or oranges, you can’t go wrong. For the best look, choose one fruit and buy many. A popular choice when staging an open house, bowls of citrus are said to bring good luck and clear out negative energy.
And, if all else fails, simply open the windows and let the summer sun and gentle breeze work their magic! Spend more time at the beach this summer, and let MOLLY MAID take care of your cleaning your home. It’s as simple as finding a local MOLLY MAID near you!
