  • At Home with Marni Jameson: Spring cleaning fever — clean where the sun shines

    By Marni Jameson | Published: Sat, Mar 28, 2015

    It’s spring, the time of year when raw unfettered daylight busts into your home like a SWAT team armed with floodlights catching you unaware: “You, you in the kitchen, put down the spoon and the ice cream carton and put up some rubber-gloved hands!” The bright light of spring exposes homes for the Petri dishes they have become over the winter.
