Spring is officially here! This season has so much to look forward to like, flowers bursting with color, warmer weather, cookouts and more. However, nothing is perfect and spring is no different. With beautiful flowers and budding trees come dreadful pollen. Everything takes on a dusty yellow hue. But thankfully we are better off than many in days past.
In 1864 a housewife wrote in her diary “Swept and dusted sitting-room and kitchen 350 times. Filled lamps 362 times. Swept and dusted chamber and stairs 40 times.” Fortunately for us, we live in a world of Roomba's and other incredible innovations.
So where did spring cleaning originate? It is actually a participation in a very old tradition that originated in several religious and cultural traditions. Also, during the 1800s, according to the Washington Post, “the biggest annual housecleaning took place in the spring because the winter left homes coated with a layer of soot and grime in every room. Lamps of the time were lit with whale oil or kerosene, which had to be heated with coal or wood, so you can just imagine that mess. Proper cleaning required opening windows to let the soot out, which, of course, could only be done during warmer weather.”
Modern-day reasoning is that the fewer hours of daylight in winter trigger the release of melatonin in our brains which is the hormone that causes sleepiness. That results in less energy during the colder months. When spring arrives, it brings with it longer days and more sunlight which slows down melatonin production.
We no longer have to scrub coal and soot, or dust 350 times, which is quite the relief. We are fortunate to have products that will make our homes feel bright and full of spring! Go from grime all the way to sparkling windows and springtime freshness. The best part is Amazon can take you there without even leaving home. Here are a few products that will make your entire house feel like springtime!
