In case you missed it, spring sprung on March 20. That means it’s time for the annual spring-cleaning ritual. And, although the exact origins of the ritual are in question, historians do know that it dates back thousands of years.
Iranians perform the task on the first day of spring and call it “khooneh tekouni,” (تکان دادن خانه) which is aptly translated to “shaking house.”
Today, Americans don’t go to quite those lengths. In fact, spring cleaning can be a relatively quick and easy process if you perform only the basics. To prove it, take a look at our handy checklist below.
