Keeping a whole house clean all by yourself can be a big undertaking, especially if you never learned how to clean a house while growing up. It’s also something that’s not particularly fun to do, so if there is a way to get it done quickly and efficiently, then it’s more likely to get done.

Keeping a clean house is not only important for our health…who wants to eat food cooked in a dirty kitchen?…but it is also a way that we can show love to our families by providing them with a tidy, comfortable place in which to eat, sleep and just be together.

Although I’m not big on Spring Cleaning (even though it’s not as bad as you think), this season is usually a good time to really give your house a good cleaning from top to bottom, as it’s been collecting dust all winter long and could use a good freshening.
