Tackling Spring Cleaning

Have you completed your spring cleaning yet? The season is fast fleeting, and it won't be long until summer is actually here.

Even so, it is still great weather for for throwing open the windows and breaking out the cleaning supplies. We've spent the past few days getting together the lists of things we need to accomplish this spring and setting our priorities. It feels great to be making some progress in this manner!

I hope you are enjoying the weather and that the tips in this week's issue help with whatever cleaning tasks you are facing.
