It’s that time!
Most people have a home cleaning schedule that they try to adhere to as strictly as possible. It’s a relatively stress free approach to keeping your living space looking presentable, yet many folks feel a sudden urge to go with a deeper clean once the seasons change and the weather turns warmer. It’s almost as though the clocks going forward an hour shine a little extra sunlight into the spaces in the home that may have been overlooked during the course of the year. That is when the cleaning gloves go on for real, and the desire to do a little spring cleaning becomes too hard to ignore.
While you may feel the need to get out the cleaning supplies once spring rolls around, you probably have no idea where the whole idea of spring cleaning began. There has been some debate about the subject, with many believing that it dates back to ancient Jewish times, when people would cleanse their homes in preparation for Passover. The deep cleaning was done in search of breadcrumbs that may have previously gone unnoticed, since leavened or fermented foods were not allowed in the home during the Passover period.
No matter the religion, it’s tradition!
Christians adopted the spring cleaning practice in the days leading up to Easter, while some parts of Europe started cleaning up forreasons that were more practical than religious. In certain parts of Europe, predominantly were wet weather commonly strikes, spring represented a time when windows and doors could be opened to the warmer weather, and some serious dusting could be done. This was, of course, in the days before vacuum cleaners could easily pick up the tiniest little piece of dust that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.
While many of the reasons for performing the act of spring cleaning are no longer really essential, there is still a need to prepare the home for the warmer months ahead. Perhaps it is much like what went down in Europe, in that throwing open those windows and doors to welcome in the warm rays of the sun almost feels like we are laying the inside if the house bare for all to see. It is much like when you are having a party with lots of people coming to visit in that it serves as an inspiration to get you property spick and span, and as neat and tidy as possible.
