Idiot’s Guide To Spring Cleaning
- Do: When you dust, start at the top and work down. Don’t: Try to save time and money on feather dusters by hopping the neighbor’s cat up on cat nip and using its tail.
- Do: Wash the walls from the bottom up to avoid streaking. Don’t: Cut corners by filling up your super soaker with Windex.
- Do: Wash the knickknacks instead of dusting. Don’t: Run the knickknacks in a load of laundry.
- Do: Open a box of backing soda to absorb odors in your refrigerator. Don’t: Recklessly open gurgling Tupperware.
