Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

When Spring rolls around most people see it as the perfect opportunity to give their home a good thorough cleaning. There are a few places that, if you tackle them right this Spring, you won’t have to do a deep clean again until next year.

Here are three areas in your home you should deep clean this Spring:


Cabinets can accumulate quite a bit of scum over time. Especially if you are the type of person who never uses the exhaust hood when cooking. To cut through the dirt and grim, invest in a good cabinet cream. A good cabinet cream will remove the dirt and leave the wood nice and moisturized.


When most people clean their windows they focus on the inside only. However, during Spring cleaning you want to clean the outside of the windows as well. This will remove the spots you usually don’t have time to tackle.

A quick pro tip is to clean the outside of your windows on a cloudy day. This way the sun won’t dry the cleaner before you get to wipe it down.


This is an appliance most homeowners completely overlook. The dishwasher is easily one of the hardest working appliances in your home. And in order for it to continue doing its job properly, it must be thoroughly cleaned every once in a while. Spring cleaning is the perfect time to give it a little TLC.

It’s essential for us to stay active at any age, for it isn’t until you stop moving that your body starts to protest with more aches and pains than you deserve.

It’s easy to get the kids moving, there are always nearby playgrounds built just for them. If you have older members in your family or organization there’s no denying that they like to play too. In fact, handy exercise and movement is just as important in old age as it is when you’re a child.

Spain has started a trend building Senior Playgrounds, and they are also present in the UK, Germany, Asia, and Finland. Seniors are loving perusing the playground equipment made just for them while socializing and making new friends. Gone are the days where grandma and grandpa sit by and watch the kids play, now they get to join in on the fun. The playgrounds are catching on and hopefully will be more common in the U.S. in the coming years. One has recently opened in Sanford, FL and is a KaBOOM project at the Midway Safe Harbor Center.

Some of the equipment includes:

  • Stationary bikes
  • Cross trainers
  • Sit up machines
  • Treadmills
  • Flexibility equipment
