This year I have to an extra special, super duper cleaning to end all super duper cleanings because we will be putting our house on the market this May/June. I’m hoping for May but the master bathroom is completely torn out at the moment and we have around 75 other projects to attend to prior to sale.Well

Well anyway, I have started my large list this past weekend and will keep at it for the next 6 weeks or so.
