It's the perfect season for some spring cleaning!

When the weather gets beautiful, we tend to start spring sprucing up our homes. But, if I'm honest, it's always a little shocking to see what I've let linger during the winter months. The popcorn, dust balls, and legos behind the couch. The dirt on the baseboards. The cobwebs in the corners.
