Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Winter is the season when a doormat at every door is a must. Keep the salt, sand, snow and slush off of your floors and brighten your entryways with one of our new floor mats – featured below and in our Winter 2019 catalog.

Artist Dianna Swartz | Made in the USA

Folk art charm, seasonal appeal, and practicality make these doormats instant favorites. Plus, they are made in the USA from recycled materials, and are designed by customer-favorite artist Dianna Swartz.

Coir Doormats

Coir is a natural fiber extracted from the husk of a coconut, and its strength and water resistance makes it the perfect material for a doormat. Plus, these doormat celebrate the furry members of your family.

Perry Indoor/Outdoor Braided Accent Mat | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopIndoor/Outdoor Braided Accent Mat

Combining two of the best worlds in country home furnishings – indoor/outdoor and braided – the Perry Accent Mat is made to function as a durable doormat while offering the traditional charm of a braided rug. Its slim construction allows most entryway doors to glide right over the top, preventing the rug from bunching or catching on your door. The polypropylene fibers and rubber backing are easy to clean and won’t slip on most surfaces.

Monday Must-Haves: Spring Cleaning Solutions

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Dusting/Cleaning E-Cloth® Glove | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopRange/Stovetop E-Cloth® | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopWith spring comes the infamous Spring Cleaning ritual. With winter receding and the freshness of spring upon us, this is a great time of year to refresh and rejuvenate our homes. To help you get started on your spring cleaning, or finish it up, today we’re featuring five must-have spring cleaning solutions and home fresheners that you can find at sturbridgeyankee.com.

Microwave Splatter Guard | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

E-Cloths® have become popular for their eco-friendliness and effectiveness. We offer two types of E-Cloths® here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. The first is one designed specifically for range/stovetop cleaning. Using just water and either the scrubbing side or finishing side, your stove will sparkle. The second is actually a glove made for dusting. The non-scratch material allows almost any surface in your home to be dusted quickly, effectively and without damage (unavailable as of May 2018).

Filthy Mutt Dog Soap | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Often our microwave gets left behind in everyday or weekly cleaning, so here is your reminder to give your microwave a good scrub this spring (you could use the E-Cloth® above!).

After you’re finished, use a Microwave Splatter Guard on your food dishes to prevent splatter and spills from sticking to the inside of your microwave. These guards are dishwasher safe, so you will end up not having to clean anything by hand.

White Floral Shrub Linen Mist | Sturbridge Yankee Workshop

Something else on your list of spring cleaning to-dos is likely to get your four-legged family member clean. The Filthy Mutt Dog Soap is made right here in Maine out of natural ingredients and will get your pup clean without the use of harsh chemicals. Since it’s biodegradable, you can even wash your dog outside with this soap (although here in New England we would wait until the spontaneous snow storm and mud seasons are over).

Finish off your spring cleaning with a soothing floral scent spritzed around your home. This linen mist is made in the USA and features imagery by artist Mary Lake Thompson. It can be sprayed on linens, upholstery, pillows and other home accents to create an appealing springtime freshness – especially when your windows are open and the scent can mix with a cool, refreshing spring breeze.
