Updated on June 17, 2014

Let's Get Cleaning!

Spring is almost here in the Midwest, and I know I can't wait to crack open the windows and let the fresh air flow in. Spring brings a sense of well being and freshness, and I feel like it is a great time to provide my home with the TLC that it has been deprived of, during the cold winter months. As the birds are returning and the animals are all coming out of hiding I am getting increasingly motivated to get started on my spring cleaning list. Good luck to all of you on your Spring Cleaning!
