Who else likes to turn on music and just CLEAN?!
If you’ve ever felt less stressed when your home is clean and tidy, you aren’t imagining it. There’s data to support the link between the cleanliness of your environment and your mental health. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin revealed a study of 60 women that were asked how they would describe their homes. The women who classified their living spaces as “cluttered” or full of “unfinished projects” were more likely to be depressed and fatigued than women who described their homes as “restful” or “restorative.” They also found that women with cluttered homes showed higher blood levels of cortisol (the stress hormone). YIKES.
Another study conducted by a professor at the University of Southern California noted:
“(Cleaning) gives people a sense of mastery and control over their environment. Life is full of uncertainty and many situations are out of our hands, but at least we can assert our will on our living space. Clutter can be visually distracting, too, and serve as a nagging reminder of tasks and chores undone.”
There are obvious benefits to keeping a clean house, but the mental benefits are very real. According to the ADAA (the Anxiety and Depression Association of America) the actual physical activity of housekeeping that ends in a successful result (a clean house) can relieve general stress, and even anxiety and depression.
I’ve recently discovered the ultimate eco-friendly, sustainable cleaning supply brand and I am thrilled to share them with you. cleancult threw away the conventional cleaning model and built a better system from scratch: one that’s good for you, your home, and our world. They discovered sustainable design, zero-waste packaging, and real, coconut-based ingredients that actually do the dirty work.
Yep, COCONUT. All moms know there’s not much that science and coconut oil can’t handle, AMIRIGHT?! Coconut oil is more than a fave ingredient; it’s actually a competitive cleaner. Its fatty acids are known to have antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. cleancult uses it as a base to fight off germs, dirt, grit, and grime, while also busting the myth that you need chemicals to clean. It’s totally safe for your home and a bonus our planet’s future.
Their products are made with the purpose of being the last containers you’ll ever buy. The reusable glass containers are 3 mm thick, shatter-resistant and have a no slip grip with the silicone sleeves. Both the glass and silicone are dishwasher safe. They ship pre-filled with their signature formula and same as any other shipment, they offset their carbon footprint with every order shipped. They will send refills in low-cost, paper-based, 100% recyclable milk cartons and 100% recyclable paper mailers for the tablets.
