March 20th, known as the Spring Equinox, is the official first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. The Spring Equinox is the astronomical event that occurs when the tilt of the Earth is perpendicular to the rays of the Sun--meaning that the Earth is neither angled towards or away from the Sun. At this point, the Sun is directly over the equator.

Most people don't know the astronomical facts about the coming of spring, but there are a wide variety of images and traditions that accompany the season. You might think about blooming flowers, rain drizzles, and pastel colored Easter eggs all over grocery stores. While these images probably don't make you feel stressed or anxious, another aspect of spring might--Spring Cleaning.

What is Spring Cleaning?

Spring Cleaning is a tradition where people thoroughly clean their home or property annually with the coming of spring and warmer weather. The origins of the tradition are unclear, although several common theories hypothesize that Spring Cleaning comes from the Persian New Year, which is on the first day of spring, or the celebration of the Passover. Regardless of the origin of the tradition, Spring Cleaning was extremely effective in historic North America and Europe because March was the best time of the year to dust and clean the home without worrying about insects and where to put dust and dirt.

In modern times, Spring Cleaning has a broader definition. To some people, Spring Cleaning involves meticulously cleaning every area of the home from ceiling to floor. Others take a more casual view of the tradition and focus on one part of the home that is particularly messy. To some, Spring Cleaning simply involves storing winter clothes and putting shorts, t-shirts, and sandals back into dressers and closets. Regardless of the methods of Spring Cleaning, statistics show that the coming of warmer weather makes over half of the adult population want to clean their residential space.

Proper Spring Cleaning can be expensive if you need to purchase cleaning products, equipment, or both to fully clean your home. Plus, if you want to keep your home orderly after your arduous Spring Cleaning, you will likely want to purchase organizational tools like shelving, plastic bins, and bags to manage your things.
