TODAY IS CLEAN YOUR FLOORS DAY
Well hopefully it hasn’t quite gotten that bad around your house yet, but if you’re anything like us, mopping and sweeping are things you put off even when all the other cleaning is done. For that matter, we’re not terribly good at vacuuming either. That’s why Clean Your Floors Day exists, to remind us that getting down and scrubbing that floor clean is just as important a part of your household cleaning ritual as the counters and dishes.
