We've hoarded this info for years, but since spring is here and the weather is finally lightening, we're feeling generous and will pass along this kernel of wisdom to you, dear readers.

Now that the snow is no longer falling and our bare legs are finally reappearing, we can embark on that ages-old tradition enjoyed by hygenic people the world over: spring cleaning. For most of us, this includes mopping up mud from the entryway, throwing out those raggety old long johns, donating servicable but unwanted jackets to the Goodwill, and recycling about fifty pounds of winter catalogs and magazines.
