Spring Cleaning 101

With all the snow we’ve been having in March and April, I find it hard to believe spring is here. But even if the weather isn’t showing many indications of spring, my house certainly is.

My house is dirty. It’s sad to say, but every drawer I open, every window I look through is telling me it’s time: time to spring clean.

Now, despite the fact that I grew up with a mother who regularly modeled yearly spring cleaning, the “spring-cleaning gene” unfortunately fell quite far from the tree. I have yet to establish a yearly spring-cleaning schedule, and to be honest, I’m not even sure I know how.

Thanks be to Google and the people at about home I found a wonderful article written by Housekeeping Expert Sarah Aguirre called “Spring Cleaning: A Complete Checklist” (see link below). Her article contains tutorials on how to spring clean the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and dining room areas of your home. Each tutorial includes a list of steps, items required, detailed “how-tos”, and a whole whack-load of other handy hints.

Does your house need a healthy dose of spring cleaning, too? Why don’t we roll up our sleeves together and take our home from filthy to fabulous!
