Spring Cleaning!

Spring cleaning is the annual practice of deep-cleaning a living space when the weather gets warmer, particularly in colder climates.

During the 19th century, many people would deep clean their homes in the spring because the winter would leave their homes a big mess.  Homes were lit with kerosene or oil and were heated with coal or wood, leaving soot and grime throughout the house. Proper cleaning would require opening the windows to let the dirt and soot out, which, could only happen in warmer weather.

While we don’t clean off coal soot from our walls anymore, spring cleaning is still a widely practiced activity.
