Every culture has its nuanced differences when it comes to cleaning. Some people sweep or wash their floors while others exclusively vacuum. Some wet dust while others use chemicals. In some cases, cleaning is often tied to the history of an area. For example, turn of the century ranchers in harsh climates often didn't clean their homes as often as farmers in very hospitable climates where the fields were easier to work. In this blog, I plan to present a diverse array of ideas on cleaning from different cultures and different time periods. I hope that these posts inspire you to look at your cleaning strategies in a new light.
