The Easter holidays are on the horizon; Easter eggs, family time and for me personally…spring cleaning! The Easter holidays have always been the time when I do the deep clean! You know the sort I mean, where you actually move the sofas and hoover behind them or you tidy up the cupboard that is normally the one you throw everything in when doing your weekly clean and tidy.
