Guest Blogger: Spring Cleaning with Jenny Wu
Whenever I hear the term “spring cleaning,” I think of Danny Tanner, the sweater vest wearing patriarch and obsessive compulsive neat freak on Full House. Cleaning was his sport and spring cleaning was his Superbowl. He enjoyed the annual event immensely as it presented the opportunity to deep clean-to lift up and wipe underneath the rug, to clean behind the fridge, and to find a way to vacuum the vacuum cleaner.
Inspired by Mr. Tanner, I’ve begun the process of a deep spring cleaning, an expunging and rebuilding of my life angled with a 360 approach. It started with a three-day Pressed Juicery cleanse and has now moved into a cleansing of my home.
With the help of The Good Home Co., I’ve replaced all my cleaning supplies and home fragrances with their natural products which are all biodegradable, plant-based, and free from chemicals and animal testing. It’s incredible how a few small changes can make such a great impact.
It’s soothing to breathe in the gentle scent of lavender while washing my Blendtec every morning after making my daily smoothie.
Perfuming my lingerie drawer with fragrant Closet & Drawer Sachets means the first item of clothing I put on everyday smells like fresh grass, one of my favorite scents in the world.
With no more room in the closets for my shoes, some are displayed on my bookshelf, a fitting tribute as I consider shoes to be works of art and enjoy looking at them all day long. The sachets are there…just in case.
Although peonies are not yet in season, they embrace me the moment I walk in the door as a few drops of the Peony scented oil fills my living room with my favorite flower.
White decor themes my home yet it’s a fragile color that requires diligent cleaning. Once reserved solely for damp towels, I now use Glass and Surface cleaner on all my white surfaces as I’m no longer afraid of chemicals creating abrasions.
Every night, I lightly mist my pillows with Beach Days so that I drift off into sleep dreaming of Sunset Beach waves and the pristine crystal blue waters of Kailua.
And in the powder room where I put on my face, the process feels more simplified even though I’m constantly trying new products and working on a new “face” as I get to do it feeling like I’m at the beach.
Spring cleaning has transformed my home into a place of escape, refuge, and sanctuary so that when I’m home, I feel at peace and…at home.
Thank you to The Good Home Co. and Danny Tanner.

About Jenny Wu of Good, Bad, and Fab
Hi, my name is Jenny and I’m a young fashion lawyer by day, seasoned fashion blogger by night. Born in Shanghai and raised in LA, I’ve come to call the City of Angels my home and my playground. Growing up, I was inexplicably drawn to fashion and held an affinity for all things pretty and sparkly.
However, I put my fashion inclinations on hold to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a lawyer. After graduating from USC Law School, I launched my fashion law career working as in-house counsel at an LA based fashion company. I manage the company’s intellectual property portfolio, implement anti-counterfeiting strategies, and draft/negotiate licensing, endorsement, marketing and cross-collaboration deals.
As you can imagine, my day job is quite stressful so I started a fashion blog as a platform and outlet to express and comment on the lighter and fashionable side of life. Living, breathing and talking about fashion is my passion-one that I’m extremely happy to be sharing with you.
Through my blog and my fashion background, I’ve gotten the opportunity to pursue and partake in many wonderful projects. I’ve worked with brands like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, BCBG, Shopbop, Sole Society, 2b by Bebe, Guess, and Gap on styling collaborations, attended Fashion Week in Milan and New York and been to countless red carpet fashion, beauty, and celebrity events all over the world. I truly believe if you do what you love, you’ll be able to reach heights that defy gravity and limitations. Where there is passion and dedication, nothing becomes impossible or out of reach.
I love connecting and interacting with my readers. Contact me day or night with any feedback, questions or random thoughts on fashion, law and life!
