I know it's March, and  it really probably isn't feeling very much like spring right now (as they say, wait a few minutes). But I'm starting to get the cleaning itch all the same!

And of course, since I'm also doing some home renovations, you know I'm going to be cleaning out the wazoo for,.... well, the foreseeable future.  But I want to make sure I'm  not going to miss something obvious when the time comes.

So here goes. According to the website Angie's List, here are the five things you're most likely to forget about when you're doing your spring cleaning . . .


1.  The baseboards along the bottom of the walls. They're pretty easy.  Just vacuum first, then wipe them with a sponge.

2.  Dusting stuff that's above eye-level. Like the top of your window blinds, or your ceiling fan.

3.  Cleaning the walls. Just use water and dish soap . . . and don't scrub too hard or you might take off some of the paint.


4.  Inside kitchen cabinets. You might think they stay clean, because you only put clean dishes in there, and the doors stay closed.  But somehow they collect dust anyway.

5.  Under appliances, like your fridge or washing machine. If you haven't cleaned them in a while, they're probably filthy.


So if we're gonna do it, let's do it right. Are you ready for spring cleaning?

Cleanly yours,
