Spring Cleaning

Updated: Mar 14

Do you know why historically "Spring Cleaning?" is a tradition?

In the Spring everything is coming up anew after a dark winter. Humans use to heat with coal or wood, and light with whale oil or kerosene which can cause quite a mess! Therefore, homes were aired out, rugs were taken outside to be beaten, and furniture and stairs were dusted. Spring Cleaning is still common around the world and not a bad idea to do with how dusty Central Oregon can get! It's definitely a good idea if you are getting it ready to sell!

Although we clean weekly, Spring Cleaning often includes tasks that we don't even do every week or month!
