Grove Co.

"Lemon essential oil is a must for us. It's always in our supply kits for removing pesky label residue on jobs. Just add one to two drops on the label and it magically makes removing so easy—no more damaged nails or surfaces from scraping off labels. We also use lemon essential oil as a surface cleaner, too. It's a great deodorizer and cleaner, plus it has an energizing scent to it, which makes the daunting task of cleaning a little more uplifting. We add about six to eight drops of oil to a standard spray bottle full of water: adjust the ratio as you see fit. We also use a few drops on our dryer balls, too!" - Shannon Krause, chief operating offer at TidyNest

ToughBag Clear Trash Bags

ToughBag Clear Trash Bags


"The thing I use most when spring cleaning is garbage bags! We use white for donations and black for trash to keep our piles straight. The change in weather is a great time to purge any clothing and seasonal decor you didn't use." - Laura Bostrom, owner of Everyday Order
