Extreme Minimalist Sustainable Low-waste Cleaning Tips and Recipes
I do spend more time cleaning as an Extreme Minimalist practicing furniture-free living because I am not relying on vacuum cleaners, laundry machine, and dishwashers. But this doesn't mean that I find this task exhausting. For me, cleaning is also a part of my mindfulness practice. I can be completely in the present moment simply focusing on the act of cleaning and breathing deeply while doing this. I love caring for my mind, body, and surrounding with intention.
Watch my Furniture-free Extreme Minimalist Apartment Cleaning Routine for the details on how I use simple and natural tools for cleaning.
