Once the weather starts to warm up a little bit many people want to open up the house and breathe new life and fresh air into their homes.  Along with the fresh air, it seems that spring is the perfect time to give everything a good, thorough cleaning.  This is the perfect time to go above and beyond the everyday cleaning and get into every nook and cranny.  This can be a daunting task to undertake, so here are 15 blog entries to help you manage your time and stay on track.  For instance, while the kitchen is the heart of the home, it can also be the dirtiest part of your home.  Within these entries you’ll find blogs that guide you in your task of cleaning the kitchen and the bedrooms, as well as checklists for cleaning the whole house, inside and out.


Most people know that heat rises, but did you know that along with that heat the grease in the kitchen rises too?  The grease gets on the very tops of your cupboards and then the dust lands on that grease and sticks.  This cleaning task takes a bit more than a feather duster.  Try to start from the top and go down when cleaning any room.  Dust will fall to the floor so if you start with the floor and then clean other areas the floor will be a mess again when you get done.  Here are some blog posts to help you spring clean your kitchen.
