10 Home Cleaning Products You Need for Spring Cleaning
Did you know that the spring-cleaning tradition can be traced as far back as 3,000 years ago to Persia? The tradition was called “khaneh tekani,” which translates to “shaking the house.” Ancient Persians believed that removing clutter and an annual deep cleaning would thwart bad luck.
Most Americans don’t necessarily have superstitions regarding spring cleaning — it’s simply the time of year when they can open the windows, let the fresh air in and tackle those deep-cleaning tasks that have been neglected throughout the year. Before you get down and dirty and dive into spring-cleaning mode, here are 10 must-have cleaning products and gadgets that you need to make this time of year easier.

It extends from 24” long to 36”, so no surface will be left uncleaned. Just add your favorite cleaning product, and you’ll be good to go.
Ceiling fans can get dusty fast, so it’s important to clean them regularly. However, this chore is notoriously difficult and can result in dust particles landing everywhere.

Snow, sea spray, dirt and grime can insidiously creep up on your windows. However, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as crystal-clean windows.

On the other side is a rubber squeegee that minimizes streaks. Ingenious!
