Checklist to Keep Your Apartment Spring-Clean All Winter Long

Checklist to Keep Your Apartment Spring-Clean All Winter Long


Growing up you might remember your mother or father aggressively cleaning for the annual Spring clean-up of your home–maybe you were even enlisted in their efforts. But, what you probably have never heard of is Winter cleaning. However, if you think about it, Winter cleaning is just as important as Spring cleaning. After all, you and your family are shut inside for many months. Keep yourself surrounded by friends and family–not dirt and dust bunnies.
