As we work our way through February towards Spring time, Spring cleaning is on a lot of people's minds, so now is the time to send out cleaning inspired branded gifts.
Spring cleaning is believed to date back to an Ancient Jewish practice of thoroughly cleaning the home, ready for the Spring time feast. This is said to be prior to the remembrance of Passover. Over the Passover period, there are strict prohibitions against eating or drinking anything which may have been fermented with yeast. Due to this, they must remove all prohibited items from their home for the length of the period, including crumbs which may have fallen. This introduced the Spring Clean, the evening before Passover begins.
In some areas of the world, the weather system is the reason for a Spring clean. In the 19th Century, for example, the Americans found that March was the best time to dust their house. This is because it was warm enough to open their windows and doors to rid of the dust mites, but not too warm for insects to want to get in. Opening the doors and windows meant that wind could flow through the home, removing the household dust. In modern day, this is a similar reason for Spring cleaning in March. Now various cleaning products have been invented, it is important to open windows to ensure that the home doesn't get contaminated with fumes.
So, what exactly is Spring cleaning defined as? Spring cleaning is the practice of fully cleaning a house at the start of Spring, so in March. The house will be thoroughly cleaned, generally with heavy duty cleaning, so including cleaning ovens(!), on an annual basis. Spring cleans are now conducted by people across the country, whatever their religion or reasons. It is the perfect time to thoroughly clean the home.
