"The clouds are looking fleecy, the days are getting warmer, the trees are starting to bud, and spring is just around the corner! All the earth begins to look alive again, and the lady of the house gets that "Spring Cleaning" gleam in her eye. And for a good reason, too. With the first fresh gusts of spring air, the house suddenly seems musty and dusty, the car squeaks, the garden has all but disappeared and everything cries out for a good airing and freshening up. That mixed blessing, the "lived-in look," really shows up, come spring!"
Good Reading Rack Service, 1957
