1.Try this simple home made cleanser.
Place citrus peels in a mason jar and cover with white vinegar. Leave for about a week until you notice that the color of the liquid changes to match the color of the peels. Strain mixture and place in a spray bottle. Add a few drops of essential oil for additional scent and use to clean countertops, glass surfaces and polish stainless steel.
2. Hand Sanitizer is a household commodity now. Trouble finding it in stores? Try making your own at home with this recipe:
Mix 3 parts isopropyl alcohol to 1 part aloe vera gel add a few drops of any essential oil you have on hand (tea tree oil is highly recommended because of its anti bacterial anti fungal properties).Put concoction into empty bottle and VOILA!
3. Digitally clean your home! Clean up all the files saved on your desktop. Old CD’s? Copy them to your MP3 files and then they make fabulous coasters or recycle them by contacting Greendisk https://www.greendisk.com/gdsite/default.aspx. Get some of those old photos off of your phone and magically have access to more storage! Old emails text messages and documents can go too.
4.Now is good time to work through all those forgotten products and ingredients. Finish that lingering bottle of whatever-beauty-product-you-purchased-before-a -YouTuber recommended- a-different-one. Feel the satisfaction or recycling an empty bottle and realizing minimalist bliss on your cosmetic counters! Go to the back of your pantry and fridge and embrace those ingredients that have been neglected.
5.If you decided to “Marie Kondo” your entire home and have extra textiles consider saving or re-puposing them. Old t-shirts can be cut up and used for cleaning the entire home.

Cut them up and place into your personal or communal composting area. Also, with Casually Uncommon, commissions are available for sentimental textiles.
