The weather is warming up and soon, it will be time to get your home ready for spring entertaining, whether it’s an impromptu gathering or a full-fledged affair! Your house doesn’t have to look like a magazine spread to let your guests know they are welcome and feel at home, it is all in the little details.

5 Tips To Prepping Your Home For Spring Entertaining

Here are five of my favorite tips on prepping your home, which include my favorite Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® scent, Lemon Verbena, perfect for giving your home a spring fresh feel and smell. No one wants harsh, chemical products or smells interrupting quality family and friend time.

Did you know that all of Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day® cleaners are made with natural essential oils, phosphate free and never tested on animals? I am always on the lookout for these types of products; with the little one’s skin allergies, we have been a household of natural/dye and fragrance free products for years.

Start With The Right Tools
Housecleaning has a bad reputation but like with any task, having the right tools makes the “chore” doable. Keep cleaning products, gloves, good brushes and sponges together in an organized cleaning caddy. Even better, make it easy on yourself and keep a small one under every sink.

5 Tips To Prepping Your Home For Spring Entertaining; use Mrs. Meyers Multi-Surface cleaner

Get Your Surfaces Sparkling And Ready To Party
The Lemon Verbena Multi-­Surface Everyday Cleaner is the perfect, naturally fresh spray for cleaning non­porous surfaces such as tabletops, bathroom fixtures and countertops and more. My kitchen table works hard serving meals, as a homework station, crafting area and more. When it’s time for entertaining, a thorough cleaning is a must. A bowl of fresh lemons finishes the table, and of course, a great compliment to our lemony scented home.

5 Tips To Prepping Your Home For Spring Entertaining; use Mrs. Meyers scrub for stainless steel surfaces

Give Your Sink A Good Cleaning
The last thing I want guests to see is a dirty sink when they come into the kitchen. A clean sink and counter goes a long way, but my stainless sink shows spots and grime very quickly so tackling it is an everyday battle. The Surface Scrub is a non-scratching gentle and effective powder cleaner perfect for stainless steel. This powder cleaner isn’t like the others you’ve used…you know, the ones that feel all gritty and put your teeth on edge when you use them!

5 Tips To Prepping Your Home For Spring Entertaining; prep your powder room with Mrs. Meyers' hand soap

Prep Your Powder Room
It only takes a moment, but checking your guest bathroom before the doorbell rings goes a long way towards making everyone feel welcome. It is one of the last things I do, from emptying the trash to extra toilet paper. Go the extra step with a pretty tray of paper hand towels, Lemon Verbena Hand Soap and lotion for your counter; reusing cloth hand towels becomes very unsanitary!

5 Tips To Prepping Your Home For Spring Entertaining; make lemon bath salts

Gift Your Guests The Perfect Thank You 
I love to send guests home with a little special something; one of my favorites, homemade lemon bath salts in jars that guests will love to reuse when all finished. It will be a lovely and much appreciated thank you; the lemon oil relaxes and opens pores, the salt relax the muscles and the baking soda cleanses those open pores.

What You’ll Need: 

Epsom salt
baking soda
lemon essential oil
tight sealing jars


1. In a large bowl, mix one cup of Epsom salt and ½ cup of baking soda.
2. Add 20 drops of the lemon essential oil.
3. Mix well with a whisk.
4. Pour into your jars; the larger the jar, the more of the recipe you will use, so plan accordingly.
5. Add a ¼ cup to your bath and soak your cares away.
