What are the things to take note during Spring Cleaning?
- Getting new cleaning items, like broom, pails, cloths, mop and any others equipments you require.
- If you have a good year in 2017, you should start to clean from the main entrance and work inwards your house.
- If you have a bad year in 2017, you should begin cleaning from the most inner part of your house and all the way out of the main door to remove all negative energy that has been accumulated. This is also to allow space for new positive energy to fill the space.
