The history of the spring clean!

As soon as the nights are lighter and the sun is shining, all we can think about is spring. Hand in hand with daffodils and bunnies, is that seasonal clean.  Many start to collect all of their possessions for the weekly car boot, some redecorate and others just clean. With later work hours, children to look after and even just socialising, it can be hard to fit in time for a comprehensive clean but... where did it come from?

The history of the spring clean

There are a number of ideas as to where the history of spring cleaning has stemmed from. In some countries, it is believed that the Chinese used to carry out housework to rid their properties of bad idealisms and misfortune.  Spring cleaning is also thought to have originated from the Passover. Jews considered having leavened bread in their homes symbolic to being ungrateful to God, which subsequently led to them searching and cleaning their homes to rid of any crumbs.

Wherever it has come from, it is still as popular as ever to carry out a spring clean of your home as one way to say bye-bye to winter and look forward to what the next few months have in store.
