Do you like to spring clean?
I remember seeking out a specific mop at my local big box store. The sales associate inquired what is was for, and when I explained it was for my spring ritual of washing walls she replied, “Why don't you paint over the dirt?”
I was amused, because for me, heralding in the spring includes the ritual of washing my walls. My daughter likes to point out that I might be a dinosaur in my thinking, but I notice she’s started to spring clean herself - including wall washing.
To me, painting over dirty walls does not make sense. The walls might look fresh, but sometimes those dirt stains start to show through the paint. They aren't really gone - they are just covered up.
I enjoy the satisfaction of a fresh, dust free environment. I sleep better, feel more energized and feel happier. I love walking into my freshly spring cleaned home - the “energy” or the “vibe” feels different.
