Most people associate the term ‘Spring Cleaning’ with ‘a seasonal freshening up’. You know? A time to not only open the windows but clean them. A time to wash the winter bedding as well as the coats, caps and mittens. Maybe it’s tackling that corner of the garage or basement that needs purging before clean-up/fix-up week.
For us it’s more about maintaining the status quo. It’s reminding the kids to remove their muddy shoes before stomping through the house, to put their wet shoes next to the vent to dry out and to pick up after themselves when they create a mess. In other words, it’s simply the name we give cleaning that happens this time of year. It’s really no different than Summer, Fall or Winter Cleaning.
