We have finally arrived at week four of our Spring Clean in 30 Challenge. We’ve spent the last three weeks cleaning different areas, giving our home the attention it needs. We’ve been sweeping, swishing, and spraying down the surfaces and dusting off the cobwebs of wintertime. If you’re new to the challenge, Clean Mama and I kicked off “Spring Clean in 30” on April 1st. We are in the last week of completing 30 cleaning tasks (each under 30 minutes) for the next 30 days & sharing daily on Instagram. If you don’t have an Instagram account, you can find out what we’ve been cleaning each week – here on the blog. If you have an Instagram account, follow us @abowlfulloflemons and @cleanmama to see our daily tasks. We would love for you to join the challenge & share with us, using the hash tag #springcleanin30. If you’ve missed the first three weeks of the challenge, begin today! Don’t forget to tag us so we can see your progress. Here’s an overview of what we accomplished during week three.
