Show Us Your Spring Clean – with MAAC!

Well, it’s almost summertime now! Is your Spring Cleaning complete?

I’ll be honest – mine is NOT! (I’ve been a little behind this year, probably due to being pregnant with twins, I don’t know…) but I’m almost there! Good thing, too – it’s pretty much summer!

And while we all feel better after a good cleaning to our homes, it’s important to remember that sometimes, cleaning can be dangerous! Watch out for things like…

  • Asbestos – may have been used in your home in previous years, and can offer a nasty reaction if disturbed.
  • Paint – all paints are considered hazardous waste! Make sure you dispose of them properly!
  • Smoke detectors – some of them use radioactive materials to detect smoke! Yikes!

So when Sarah from MAAC (Mesothelioma & Asbestos Awareness Center) contacted me with a great Spring Cleaning infographic that also reminds us to watch out for the dangers that may be involved, I thought it was perfect! See for yourself…

The 2016 Spring Holiday Shelf!

Well, folks, by the calendar, it’s SPRING! 

I have a love/hate relationship with Spring, myself. I love it because everything starts going towards bright and cheerful and colorful. I hate it because I can’t stop sneezing, and normally develop some kind of sinus infection or bronchitis attack. Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess!
