Spring symbolizes that time of year when we do our annual cleaning. Here are a few tips to help you with your spring cleaning.

Dealing with stainless steel:
If your kitchen has stainless steel appliances, here's a tip to keep them bright and clean. Use a light mist of wax-based aerosol spray once or twice a week. Always wipe the mist with a clean, lint-free cloth.

Cleaning counter tops:
Depending on your counter tops, you want to make sure that spills are cleaned up quickly. You should also have your counter top sealed a few times as soon as it's installed. Properly sealed counter tops will have surfaces that bead when water is spilled on them.

Organizing closets:     
Find unused clothes and
accessories, and donate them.
Once you clean up and organize
your closet, getting dressed in
the morning can become more

Washing the walls:                      
The best approach is to use a mild
mix of dish soap and water. Use a cloth
or sponge and refresh the water/dish
soap frequently. Stronger solvents can
damage the paint.

Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

The blueberry is packed with fibre, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and phytonutrients. The fibre in blueberries helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.

Oatmeal is another great source of dietary fibre and it contains beneficial minerals like magnesium and phosphorus.

Here is a great smoothie recipe that can really benefit overall heart health.

Blend all until smooth:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ banana
¼ cup rolled oats, dry
2 tbsp raw almonds
¼ tsp stevia (1 packet)
1 cup frozen blueberries
