Spring Cleaning

The tradition of Spring Cleaning dates back centuries and is a hallmark of Jewish, Iranian and Chinese cultures.  The meaning of spring-cleaning is to clean all of a place, especially your house, very well, including parts you do not often clean. Especially during this pandemic, spring cleaning is a "must-do".
