The New Year often brings a fresh set of motivations to start anew. This is why many people embark on weight-loss programs, try to learn new skills or hobbies, or start new projects during the first few weeks of the year.
One of the most productive New Year activities we can embark on though, is actually quite simple: a New Year General Cleaning. What sets this type of cleaning apart from other kinds of general cleaning is that you need to orient your cleaning around starting the year from a clean slate.
This entails a lot of decluttering, disinfecting, and reorganizing. Here are some tools to aid you in our quest for a cleaner abode.
