Ahhh, March is here!  Although spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 20th, it’s nearly time to think about spring cleaning.  As you know, spring cleaning is the practice of deep or thoroughly cleaning a house or other area. With spring comes newness and fresh air.  Time to open the windows and let in spring breezes.
