17 items you can use to cleanse your home of the straight-up inferno that was 2017

It happens every year. It’s January 1st and, suddenly, without even meaning for it to happen, we want to start fresh in a big way. In the biggest way. We want to burn everything we own and then rise anew from the ashes of our old lives. The moment the clock strikes midnight, it’s a mad dash to start 2018 off on the right foot, on a different foot, on any foot. That mop you forgot you had gets pulled out from those cobwebs you’re about to dust as you google places where you can donate that mountain of clothes you’ve had sitting in the corner of your closet for the past, um, 12 months.

Your surroundings? Those are so 2017.

Now that 2018 has risen above the horizon, it’s time for us to set the stage for a year that will (fingers crossed!) be better than the inferno that was 2017. One of the easiest ways to do so is to cleanse your space, that place you scramble back to at the end of a disastrous day. Now that the holidays are over, we’ve got you covered with a 2018 guide for cleansing your home. It’s time for you to start the year off right, by taking care of yourself so you have the tools you need to take care of others.
