Spring, if you live here, means slush. It means things tracked in as the weather warms and you need to start cleaning.
It means that ice is melting, and mold is forming. I like spring, I really do. I like the potential of it. The cleaning part is... a lot less fun.
So to start-
Organize craft materials and repair the damage to my pantry after a winter of "It's too cold to go to the store, what do I have on hand?" It's also time to clean out the freezer and try to figure out why half my date labels smudged (permanent markers aren't) and try to remember "When did I get this?" Also it's time for me to draft my kids into a lot of the cleaning. Taking woolen jackets to the cleaners before packing them away for summer and making sure all the hats are clean and put away too.
It's also frequently time for me to pick up a book and think "I'll do the rest later." then feeling guilty and putting down the book to start organizing and cleaning again.

So what kinds of things need cleaning after a long winter?

Snow and damp in my arctic entry mean MOLD. I'm allergic *sneeze*. This makes quick work of most of the area.
Clorox® Bleach Foamer for the Bathroom clings to your bathroom surfaces and begins working right away.
Oh yes, Make sure the master bathroom is super clean for hot baths after untangling yarn that shouldn't get that tangled when it was placed neatly into bins.
Okay, back to cleaning now. Then after all that is done, and the snow is all melted, it will be time to face my lawn. Good luck everyone! With the right tools, it's doable and then we can really enjoy the best part of spring and summer!
