Cleaning History

Researchers believe spring cleaning originated with the Persian new year, which occurs on the first day of spring. The Iranians perform this ritual just before Persian New Year when everything in the house is thoroughly cleaned, from drapes to furniture.

Alternatively, spring cleaning may originate in the ancient Jewish custom of thoroughly cleaning the home in advance of Passover.
