How to get your ROSS military apartment spotless this spring.
Spring is a delightful season. The cherry blossoms are blooming. The lengthening sunny afternoons tempt you to stroll slowly down the sidewalk. You walk into your military apartment and throw open the windows. The breeze is refreshing. You take a deep breath. It’s time for spring-cleaning! Whether you love it or hate it, it’s something that has to be done. Make your cleaning time shorter and more enjoyable with these tips.
Play Some Music
You can create a custom playlist to suit your spring-cleaning mood on any number of music platforms. Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and YouTube can be useful for those who know what they want and know technology. Or, you can try a classic throwback. Put on a favorite record or cassette and shake your tail feather.
Get the Kids Involved
Having children help out with household chores is a great way to teach them about responsibility and persistence. Plus (depending on how old they are), it can cut your cleaning time in half! Use these simple tips to make cleaning with your kids a breeze.
Catch the Most-Missed Spots

Hint: if the answer is never, you don’t need it! Adrienne Breaux from Apartment Therapy offers yet more helpful tips on how to clean your military apartment.
