It was “all hands on deck” for three and a half hours of uninterrupted spring cleaning today. Whew! It’s amazing how much can be accomplished in that time! Progress was made: in cleaning out closets, tidying up the mudroom area of the basement from a winter’s worth of boots, ski clothes, and the like, sorting through linens, cleaning baskets (accomplished most efficiently with the air compressor), vaccuming under furniture, and so much more.
I turned my attention to the formal dining room, which got cleaned from top to bottom. The silver was polished.
Cleaning the formal dining room is very gratifying, because everything shines and sparkles when it’s done.
