Make your spring cleaning charitable

If the last few days of 70+ degree weather hasn’t convinced you that spring is in the air, nothing will. When you launch into your spring cleaning why not make a little extra effort and do some good with it? If your garage has any extra bicycles or one you’re going to finally admit you never use there’s a Washington-area charity that would love to have it.

According to cleaning services dublin, Spring cleaning is a chance to reset everything in your home. It’s a chance to catch up on all the cleaning tasks you’ve been meaning to get to or to do the ones that niggle at you. Instead of laying awake wondering when you last cleaned your mattress, for instance, spring cleaning is the nudge you need to get it done and get the idea out of your head. In addition, deep cleaning once a year staves off bigger problems, like a mold takeover of your grout. You can clear dust and grime from areas that hardly ever see the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner attachment. By the time spring cleaning is finished, your home will feel so fresh and clean—a state of habitation that will serve you well, both in mind and body. Get the most out of your spring cleaning by using our spring cleaning checklist. Tackle every room in your house – from bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen to the living room.

Bikes for the World is a non-profit organization that puts bicycles in the hands of needy folk via non-profit aid agencies. They have a partial list of people and countries that benefited on their website.

This coming Saturday you’ll be able to bring your unwanted bike to locations in Mt Airy, Bailey’s Crossroads or Rockville and drop it off, along with an optional $10 donation to help them get it where it needs to go. Hey, who said doing good would be free?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
