Suma helps keep your spring clean green!

Submitted by on March 22, 2013 – 2:54 pmNo Comment

Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to think about having a really good clean up and clear out. To make life easier we’ve put together our very own Suma spring cleaning checklist for you to follow. Together with our range of Ecoleaf cleaning products, our spring cleaning checklist will make sure you do a thorough job without missing anything out. You can download our Spring Cleaning checklist by clicking on the image to the right.

Giving your world a top to bottom sort out is part of an age old tradition, with a few claims to it’s origin. Some sources say it originated from the Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring, were the practice of khooneh tekouni or shaking the house is still followed today. Others think it comes from the Jewish tradition of thoroughly cleaning homes before the spring time feast of Passover. In the wetter North American and northern European climates March was often the best time for dusting as it was warm enough to open windows and doors (but not warm enough for insects to be a problem), and let the winds carry the dust out of the house.

Whatever the origins of spring cleaning are, here at Suma we are ready to offer you some help. As well as a great range Ecoleaf products to help you breeze through your cleaning duties, we have also prepared a special Suma spring cleaning checklist for you to download. It’ll help you make sure that you don’t miss anything out!
