Did you do spring cleaning this year?

Dryer HoseSummer has begun, but it’s not too late to do spring cleaning.

Now, I’m not a fan of housework. I usually don’t do spring cleaning. However, I can see the value of it at times.

About a week ago, I was cleaning, getting ready for a visit from my daughter and the grandkids from Spain.

As I was vacuuming near the dryer, which is located in the Rec Room behind folding doors, I noticed a huge amount of dust in the corner going up to the ceiling. I thought, “I haven’t vacuumed here in ages, years, it looks like.”

Then I looked down. There were holes, massive holes, in the hose that was supposed to exhaust the air out of the house.

I set up an appointment with Sears to get it fixed, but I got lucky. My forester friend who was helping me prune my rhododendrons and trees knew how to fix it.

So, it’s a good idea each spring to do an inventory around your house to see if everything is O.K.

See my article “It’s Not Too Late to Work on Spring Cleaning and Getting Rid of Clutter” for more ideas on spring cleaning.
